AM Events

Adds an event post type with an interface and template tags similar to normal posts. Also includes a customizable widget for upcoming events.

The plugin adds a custom event post type with two taxonomies: event category and venue.

Allows the user to add new events just like normal posts with added fields for start time, end time, category and venue. You can also easily create weekly or biweekly recurring events.

Displaying the events is done in the theme files using WP_Query and the template tags provided by the plugin. This allows full control over the layout and what elements to show.

The plugin also includes a widget for showing upcoming events. It uses a very simple template system for full control of the layout.

For integrating AM Events to an existing theme, I suggest creating a child theme with custom page templates. You can download a full example of a working Twenty Twelve child theme from my website (Download link). It contains three different page templates for events pages.

See Other Notes for detailed information and a small tutorial about the custom post type and the widget.

If you think something critical is missing, feel free to send me a request. I'm using this on some of my client's sites so I'll certainly be improving/fixing it for upcoming WordPress versions.

The plugin is available in the following languages (pot-file included for additional translations):

  • English
  • French
  • Norwegian
