New Feature Update: WP Travel Engine v5.7.1 

At WP Travel Engine, we are dedicated to providing travel business owners with essential tools and features to enhance their travel operations. 

As a part of our ongoing efforts, we are excited to announce the latest release of WP Travel Engine v5.7.1, packed with new features and enhancements.

Let’s explore the changes that we have made in WP Travel Engine v5.7.1. 

1.  Display trips according to conditions 

Our Trip Fixed Starting Dates add-on has received an update to its conditional trip visibility feature. With this update, users can choose from two options to set conditional trip visibility based on dates availability. 

Hide trips without fixed starting dates

Hide trips without fixed starting dates

You can enable the option to hide trips that do not have specified starting dates. It ensures that only trips with confirmed dates will be displayed on the archive pages. 

By doing so, you can eliminate any confusion caused to potential customers who are looking for trips with specific starting dates. 

Hide trips without available dates beyond a specific number of days

With this option, you have even more flexibility in controlling the visibility of trips. By enabling this feature, you can set a specific number of days as a threshold. Trips that do not have available dates beyond this threshold will be hidden from the archive pages.

For example, if you set the threshold to 3 days, any trips without available dates within the next 3 days will be automatically hidden. This feature lets you showcase only the trips that have near-future availability, ensuring that customers can easily find and book trips that suit their preferred time frame.

2. Add custom enquiry form

We’ve updated the WP Travel Engine plugin to better integrate with popular third-party form plugins like WPForms, Gravity Forms, and Ninja Forms.

This enhanced compatibility, particularly with the custom enquiry form, streamlines your inquiry handling, making it easier and faster on the WP Travel Engine platform.

How to enable it: 

  • Go to the Admin Dashboard.
  • Click on WP Travel Engine >> Settings >> Emails >> Enquiry Emails.
  • Find and enable the Custom Enquiry Form.
  • Notice the ‘Form Shortcode‘ field that appears.
  • Enter the shortcode for either WPForms, Gravity Forms, or Ninja Forms.
  • After adding the shortcode, the default Enquiry Form will be hidden.

5. WebP format image support for performance

The WP Travel Engine v5.7.1 now supports the WebP image format, offering better compression and quality for your site’s images. It also helps to load images faster.
