    I'd like to see some sites where Events Manager is in use.

    Can't find any examples on the plugins page of how the content is supposed to display, which is pretty darn strange.

    Thanks.

    I was coming in here with the same question. The details all sound great and possibly what I'm looking for, but I'd love to see some examples.

    Will have to keep checking back to see if anyone posts any examples.

    I helped these guys out, it's been modified a bit, but shows some of what's possible:

    Events Manager is fantastic! Definitely go with the Pro (paid) version. You get a ton of features that make EM the best WordPress events plugin - hands down!

    We are super happy with EM and receive compliments daily on it's functionality and ease of use.

    Check out The Scoop Manhattan to see it in action.

    I have just launched it at http://www.ey2p.org

    Thanks for making a really nifty piece of software as it does just what was needed. I have a couple of queries that I'll place in another thread.

    Hey guys, thanks for links, looks nice.

    I just installed it and mine does not look that great yet :-D

    @Marcus, @mages.b

    Guys, a question for you. Was it just Event pages customisation (with attributes, etc) or was it Pro version that you used at your web site?

    Cheers

    actually, just free is needed for their stuff, currently (and this will quickly change) pro offers extra payment features and private support forums.

    Um, are there any demo sites that show the product working reliably?

    Unfortunately The Scoop's site gave me this error while checking the Categories:

    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 30932992) (tried to allocate 99453 bytes) in /homepages/31/d335370834/htdocs/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 2909

    EY2P's seems okay but doesn't use a calendar view or categories...

    Conversely, if I just install it to try it out, does it UNINSTALL cleanly? Would I just deactivate the plugin and remove its directory? What about the database content?

    @bwp,

    If you want to try, you can read docs and tutorials at
    http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation/ and http://wp-events-plugin.com/tutorials/

    to uninstall, just deactivate and delete the plugin. If you want to delete database values, delete tables with prefix e.g. _em_ and in wp_options table delete option name dbem_*

    database tables don't get deleted because that would annoy more ppl than the other way around. need to make an uninstall feature though so it doesn't need to be done manually.

    ask here - http://wp-events-plugin.com/contact-us/ and we'll send a couple other examples.

    bwp,

    Hi, I have it here: http://goforfun.com.au
    Click "Events" in the top menu.
    May be it can answer your questions. I don't use bookings.

    The only thing that I have not figured out is how to add a text to Events page (list of event) so it does not appear in each event-page. Probably it's something to do with my theme templates...
    And I have a crazy instruction of how to add events %) Sorry for that, I guess I need to put some smart button instead.

    Hope it helps somehow

    Cheers

    I went to the Events Manager site looking for a simple demo but could not find any which I too found a bit strange. I am hoping this plugin can easily be used by designers to get a good event up and running.
    It is nice to see that one can go into the code and adjust where it is needed. It seemed like the documentation explained how to use and customize.

    Thanks for the links to sites that have this running! It is good to see the various ways it is used.

    I have been looking at All In One Event Calendar as it is off on a good start but it seems a bit premature. That it needs more time to develop and mature.

    Have a great day!

    How did you go about doing that upcoming events? Is that using the widget? I'm new to all this and pretty much am trying to hardcode this into the template I'm making.

    that can be done with using the widget and html

    the imaage thumb is done using #_EVENTIMAGE{x,y}

    I have a very simple implementation working (mostly) although I have 2 issues to resolve that I will post elsewhere. My site is a prototype for a specialist application I am testing but I would welcome visitors to try it out at:
    http://www.experiment.vacau.com

    Just three things to mention -

    1. I am limiting event contributions to registered members (largely to avoid spam);
    2. Contributions are moderated for the same reason; and
    3. The tab for the Events list page has been renamed to Gather

    The site is still a 'work in progress' but most parts of the front end are visible without needing to register.

    Hey pawriter

    As you say a simple implementation of the events manager.
    I'll ask some simple questions. Things that should be easy enough to answer.
    Can you share what you modified to create the style of the page. Style might be the wrong word I am looking at for instance time 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (instead of the default comma ,) and the rest of the page. As a simple tutorial on how to modify the look of the default event page. It is a good starting point to later on continue the modifications.

    Tips and tricks when it comes to event manager. How to easily modify the look of the event page.

    Thanks..:)

    Hi paaljoachim,

    Im a relative beginner too but if I am correct in understanding your question I suggest you look two places:

    1. In the settings tab of Events in the Dashboard have a close look at the Events Format section for the Events page (that is the list) and the Single event page which is the additional detail page associated with an event.
    You will find three main areas you can alter
    Default event list format header;
    Default event list format; and
    Default single event format.

    You will need to be very careful making any changes especially if you are unfamiliar with HTML. I would suggest reading Event Manager documentation first ( http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation ) and before making any changes be clear about what you intend to change then note what is the original code (you can probably copy and paste the default code into a simple text editor to allow you to copy it back if you need to).

    Below most of these areas are links to things like placeholder code which will give you added information and there are more links there to official documentation and tutorials.

    So far as the specific question of time format is concerned - my Default Event List format section has a line
    #H:#i -#@H:#@i
    which the list displays as Hours:Minute - Hours:Minutes - there is an explanation of this in the Getting Help for Events Manager page within the plugin when you select one of the links to placeholder code.

    I hope you can follow what I have said.

    Good luck!

    Great Paul Under!

    Thanks for the response!

    I my Default event list format I have the info in the first table data as:

    <tr>
    <td>
    #_{d/m/Y} #@_{- d/m/Y}
    #_24HSTARTTIME - #_24HENDTIME
    </td>

    We use the 24 hour time clock here in Norway. Even though I placed a dash (-) between I get a comma in the frontend.

    Another thing I also noticed is that there is a link to location, which I have not looked at closer yet. It seems I can make a page or something about the location.
    Here is our events calendar in action.
    http://baldron.org/events-baldron/

    Btw
    One way of "removing" something is to use the comment bracket <!-- and end bracket to make it invisible. Good way of testing out stuff.

    Have a great day!

    Tthis appears to be a great plugin, however online documentation is limited and the lack of a functioning demo site is frustrating. I have got the events listing working and have been able to modify the look / layout of the events page. Have included the event listings in the sidebar widget as well, but can't seem to figure how out how to modify the output in the sidebar widget. I only need the event name and date displayed in the sidebar, by default the plugin includes the event City as well. Any thoughts?

    @kayghee

    Does it included in the Events Widget List item format: ?

    By Default:
    #_LINKEDNAME<ul><li>#j #M #y</li><li>#_TOWN</li></ul>

    THEN Change it to:
    #_LINKEDNAME<ul><li>#j #M #y</li></ul>

    I'm looking for a list of examples myself...
    The LIVE working examples I have found so far range from fairly basic to OMG WOW!

    People should add theirs to the list if they think it'll help or inspire others. (I will when mine's ready!)

    Hi debsch,
    Thanks for the list.

    I found the first URL is awesome.
    I guess it's heavily customised?

    I have installed EventsManager at http://www.cinzroadtsers.com , my plan is to create events like drives single day, drives multi day, and dining out/meetings and I made the mistake of uninstalling so I could try some competitors event managers and when I finally decided ft come back and re-install Event Manager, all seems well EXCEPT when I click on "Events" ( http://screencast.com/t/XSD0goRg ) the program trues to re-direct to http://cinzroadsters.com/index.php/events-7/ <<< Note the 7. I have uninstalled, deleted directories and re-installed several times hence the '7'. Each time I re-install it increments by one.

    The sub menu items go to http://cinzroadsters.com/index.php/events-7/categories/ and http://cinzroadsters.com/index.php/events-7/locations/ and they resolve to a working location.

    Any ideas?

    See if you have items in the trash and delete them.

    Hope this helps.

    Looks like I'm gunna blow the entire blog away and start again. I'm guessing that the database has stuff in it that I'm not smart enough to get rid of.

    I'll see if there are any other posts overnight and start again tomorrow morning!
