This plugin lets you display events for a Songkick user, artist, venue, or metro area on your WordPress blog, as a widget or shortcode.
This plugin lets you display upcoming or past events for a Songkick user, artist, venue, or metro area on your WordPress blog.
Events can be displayed by adding the Songkick widget to your template, or by adding the shortcode [songkick_concerts_and_festivals] anywhere in your blog.
Go to the Settings page to configure default options for the plugin. You can also specify your settings under Plugins/Widget or via shortcode options.
Go to the admin Widgets page and simply drag the widget into a sidebar and configure it.
Add the shortcode [songkick_concerts_and_festivals] in the content of any blog post.
When using a shortcode, you can set which artist, venue, metro area, or user you want to display events for, allowing you to show events for different entities:
[songkick_concerts_and_festivals songkick_id=your_username songkick_id_type=user]
[songkick_concerts_and_festivals songkick_id=your_artist_id songkick_id_type=artist]
[songkick_concerts_and_festivals songkick_id=your_venue_id songkick_id_type=venue]
[songkick_concerts_and_festivals songkick_id=your_metro_area_id songkick_id_type=metro_area]
Override shortcode settings:
You can call the shortcode method directly in your PHP code:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[songkick_concerts_and_festivals]'); ?>
