A couple questions for those of you who have the room discount showing. I've figured out how to put a discount for a specific time period, but can't figure out where to put the code to make the title red (Fall Special). I know I'm supposed to go to "themes", but I can't figure it out.

The other problem I'm having is keeping my 2 night minimum on Fri & Sat only.

Thanks for any help you an give me!

Also, if you guys have questions about the system, use the messaging option (click the envelope at the top right,) and you can send a message to support (John,) right from your console. John is pretty good about getting right back to you!

Thanks PT...I didn't think about doing 2 separate rate adjustments for the 2 night minimum on the weekends.

I read the post on the blog about the discount and have the code. The problem I'm having is I go to "Themes", there's nothing there, so I add a theme. This is where I'm having the problem...I have to choose a new theme because it's not showing one there already. I don't know which one to choose and I've tried most of them. At this point, I'm obviously not adding the code where it needs to go because no matter what I do, the "Fall Discount" never turns red. What am I doing wrong??

 You just have to enter the correct CSS code for rate adjustment.    When you create your theme,  try this:

/*-----------------rate adjustment --------------------------------*/
#span_rateadjustmentname {color:red; font-weight:bold;}      

If you want a particular type face,  just add it like this:

/*-----------------rate adjustment --------------------------------*/
#span_rateadjustmentname {color:red; font-weight:bold; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;}

I found this on the ReservationKey blogspot:

Rate Adjustment Shows in Room Listing Price

If your room/unit price is being adjusted downward by a Rate Adjustment, we are now showing the original price, plus the Adjustment name, and then the adjusted price.  This is a good way to let your guests know they are getting a discount.

Since Rate Adjustments can also be used to increase prices, we are making sure only to show this section when the price is decreased.  We have added ID's to both the original price section and the discount name, so the look and feel of both can be adjusted with CSS in your theme (or hidden if you don't want to use this feature).  The tag information is:
#span_originalprice {text-decoration: line-through;}
#span_rateadjustmentname {color:red;font-weight:bold;}

Select Days of the Week For Discount Codes

You can now select which days of the week a discount code can be used.  This makes it now possible to use discount codes to run specials such as "Stay 2 nights or more during the week and receive a $100 discount."   By setting the code validity to only Sunday through Thursday, the user will see an error message if they try to use the code on other days of the week.  If no days of the week are selected, then the discount code is valid for all days. 

For your 2-night minimum problem:

1.  Go to the Properties tab

2.  Select Rate Adjustment

3.  Select Add Rate Adjustment

4.  Give your Rate Adjustment a name

5.  Enter the date range, i.e. if you want the whole year, select January 1 - Dec 31

6. Click on the box(es)  for the days where you want the rate to be applied,  in your case Friday and Saturday.

7. If the rate is not changing,  set the "Adjustment"  to increase by 0.

7. Change "Minimum Stay"  to  "2"

8. You can select if you want to allow a reservation to be made if you're one day into the two-day minimum, but still have an opening.  This acts as an override in case you have an one open night that was not filled for any reason.

9. The "Ignore Rate Rules"  selection allows you to choose whether or not you will allow other discounts to be applied during this rate adjustment period.
