How to I connect my MINDBODY account?
MB Spirit uses a performance-enhancing service to gather your MINDBODY information and prepare it for this plugin. You must
have an account with BOTH MINDBODY and MB Spirit to use this plugin. If you already have a MB Spirit
account, simply enter your account information under MB Spirit Settings.
If you do not have an MB Spirit account, you need to register at https://mb-spirit.com. Start with a
free trial with access to a demo account. This account will allow you to test MB Spirit and
confirm the integration before signing up.
When you are ready to integrate your data, you authorize your MINDBODY account with MB Spirit. Once this is
done you will have access to your MINDBODY content. WordPress will pre-fetch its content from MB Spirit ensuring fast
reliable data. MB Spirit users a powerful caching technology to render MINDBODY content instantly on your site.
Is there a cost to use MB Spirit?
In addition to your MINDBODY account, you are registering your site with our API service (MB Spirit).
MINDBODY charges us on a monthly basis to provide this service to you. When you are using MB Spirit in the
demo mode during the trial, there are no charges. Once you have authorized your MINDBODY account to get your
own data, these charges begin. We pay these charges on your behalf and charge you for use of the MB Spirit
service. MB Spirit currently charges $20USD per location per month to provide the full service.
I don’t like the options for presenting my content. Is there a way to improve it?
You can create your own custom widget presentations and choose options to control filtering and grouping of results.
If you don’t see the options you need, let us know! We’ll likely build it for you.
If you are savvy with programming in WordPress there are a number of filter hooks within the plugin that you can
use to manipulate the content or to completely build the content from raw data received from the API service.
Documentation of these filters is available at the MB Spirit web site (https://mb-spirit.com/filters-wordpress-plugin)
Please contact us for questions or support with this feature.
I have a multilingual site. How do I translate my content?
We are WPML friendly and have routines to manage addition of new languages. We are always happy to integrate
new languages to our core, so feel free to obtain templates for translation and contribute your translation
files to us at:
While much of the interface can be internationalized, we do not have the facility yet to provide multilingual
support for translations of your descriptions. Please indicate your enthusiasm for this enhancement by
contacting us directly.
