Provides theme developers with simple extensions to sites with events as a custom post type.
If the plugin detects that there is a custom post type registered with a particular name (either 'event' or '*_event'), it steps in and does a number of useful additional things:
slt_all_eventsin your posts query to
true. Alternatively, use
true) to get only past events.
slt_se_listing_time_offset. It defaults to
0(no change from the current time). To set the cut-off to 24 hours ahead of the current time, hook a function to this filter that returns that value in seconds, i.e.
60 * 60 * 24.
disable_simple_eventsin your posts query to
IMPORTANT: The automatic event filtering only kicks in with front-end queries done using
WP_Query. Use this rather than
In addition, this function is provided for convenience. If an event date exists for the post in question, it returns that; if not, it returns the standard post date.
<?php slt_se_get_date( $the_post = null ) ?>
NOTE: An Event Date custom field will be added to the event edit screen automatically if my Custom Fields plugin is active. Otherwise, make sure your event post type supports
[register_post_type](http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_post_type), and add dates to events with the format YYYY/MM/DD, e.g. 2011/12/21 - this format is required to allow sorting by this field.
NOTE: The filtering performed by this plugin currently doesn't work well with
get_posts - for now, create custom loops with
