    Marcus is it possible to have the Events Page the Home Page?

    mysite.com instead of mysite.com/events

    Sorry if it is a noob question been using Joomla and specifically came over over to wordpress because of your Events Manager..looks perfect for what I am working on

    It's so simple. This is basis for wordpress configuration.

    Selecting (under admin-reading-) the "events" page the static "home" page created a new issue .

    mysite.com works and displays the (list of events) BUT when I click one of the events ...I get the "Not Found"
    mystite.com/event/the-actual-event I now get a Not Found .

    Original setup url works :
    mysite.com/events (shows a list of all events)
    mysite.com/events/event/the-actual-event.htm (shows that particular event)

    I'll continue reading/searching seeing if anyone else had this issue

    Ideally I would like to get rid of

    "events/event/"

    "event"

    so instead of mysite.com/events/event/the-actual-event.htm .. the url would read mysite.com/the-actual-event.htm

    or I suppose I need categories so

    mysite.com/events/category1/the-actual-event.htm
    mysite.com/events/category2/the-actual-event.htm

    etc..

    Since version 4.16 Events Slug has been implemented. http://wp-events-plugin.com/blog/2011/09/12/4-16-and-pro-1-33-released/

    This could help you.

    That didnt help with the original issue agelonwl but thanks anyways..

    What I have decided on is simply making the "Home" Page a Directory (static directory/list page)..hand building a simple but clean directory with links to Categories and Events.

    Then I have disabled the "list view" on the events Page and changed that to the Calender View

    .

    Disappointed events page as home page isn't working right out of the box ..and that the goofy "extra" "/event/ path is added ..I read a 2 month old post where Marcus said that extra /event/ path would be fixed and available in the pro package ..I don't see anything on the pro page about it though

    appreciate the script..

    it can't be done yet (home page), still working on a solution for that.

    you can't remove the events but what you can do now is change the slugs (see my recent posts on the plugin site for info on that)

    Thanks for the update Marcus..

    I have found one other temp solution...Make a Home Page and simply add the [event_list] shortcode .. Still the long events/event URLS but at least I can display the List View on Home page.
