Calendar on pages for guest to see prices shows holidays darker -
I want to remove color because it looks like dates are blocked
You can set the color of the holiday shading in the settings for the widget, under Settings > Widgets. One of the options is no shading.
Holidays still shaded on public view of page for selecting dates to send inquiry --
which makes them look blocked
so they will not send inquiry
If you've got a hosted website, that has its own widgets -- you need to make the adjustments by going to edit that particular page on the hosted website and update the holiday color on those widgets.
I did not find the option to change the holiday shading after clicking settings>widgets....???
There's not a general setting for holiday color -- each widget has its own holiday color setting.
If you've create a widget, you'll find it in Settings > Widgets. Edit it there and you can set the holiday color.
For hosted websites, edit the page where that widget appears, change the settings for the widget, and you'll find the holiday color setting there (see screenshot). On some pages, such as the property detail page, there may be several widgets such as the booking widget and availability calendar that have separate holiday color settings.
