Experimental extension for The Events Calendar and Events Calendar PRO adding shortcodes, front page events and more.
The wiki contains more detail on various topics and is often worth looking at if you need more information.
[event_rocket_calendar]embeds the calendar widget
[event_rocket_list]embeds the list widget
[event_rocket_countdown]embeds the event countdown widget
[event_rocket_venue]embeds the featured venue widget
Please note however that if you are not using Events Calendar PRO then any widgets specific to that plugin (such as the countdown and calendar widget) will not be available.
Yes - you can use the
[event_embed] shortcode to do this (please see here).
[event_embed from="2014-07-01" to="2014-07-31"]grab events in July
[event_embed from="2014-10-01" category="fruit"]grab events starting in October that belong to the category fruit
Both the countdown and venue widgets need to know which event or venue you are referring to. All of the following are examples of acceptable ways to pass this information:
[event_rocket_venue id="123"]which is nice and short
[event_rocket_venue venue_id="123"]is also allowed
[event_rocket_countdown id="789"]this time the ID relates to the event
[event_rocket_countdown event_id="789"]again you can be more explicit if you wish
The list widget allows you to specify a category of events. This is also possible via the corresponding shortcode, simply do this:
Where 987 would be replaced with the actual category ID you wish to use.
You can let it know you want the seconds to be displayed by using the
show_seconds attribute, something like this:
[event_rocket_countdown id="789" show_seconds="true"]
A new menu option will appear in the WordPress tools menu labelled 'Cleanup events data' - by default this only appears when The Events Calendar is deactivated. You are strongly cautioned to make a full and complete backup before using this tool (and, of course, should make yourself aware of the steps needed to restore that backup).
Cleanup make take quite a while (it really depends on how many events you have, etc) but every so often the screen will update while the job is in progress to let you see how much work still needs to be done. Recommendation is to grab a coffee and a newspaper or else simply leave it running in its own browser tab.
