Need a custom-modification to the Wordpress Plugin

I am using Checkfront with a Wordpress theme that has it's own booking plugin.  We are not using their booking plugin since Checkfront is a lot more powerful, but I like the look and feel of the theme's plugin.

It has a search form on the home page where the guest can enter an arrival and departure date and number of guests, and when the Search button is clicked, it then goes to the booking page where the results that match the search appear.

Checkfront's plugin has the search form and the results all on the same page, which makes it unsuitable to use as the home page.  What I need is a form that I can put on my homepage that will post the search data to the Checkfront booking page so the guest doesn't have to enter it all over again when the booking page comes up.

Here is the theme we are using:

Anybody interested in tackling this?  I've used programmers from India and China in the past to do some custom php programming for me, but this seems like way too small a project for that!

    This may be achievable by customizing the css of the Wordpress booking widget, but you may want to have a look at our Gateway Site Builder theme.  It matches up pretty close to what I think you are looking for and has some additional value in the booking flow and item publishing:

  • Yes, that's the functionality I'm looking for.  I'll play with the site builder and see what I can do with it.
