[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Migration from EC-314b (2 posts)

    Hi Shane and team, I have been following you progress and am liking what I see. I have been using EC3 forever and must have 780 legacy event posts.

    I am using Thesis 16 on WP291

    Currently events are handled as a category, so at

    http://www.halfwaytoconcord.com

    Events appear as regular posts with EVENTS selected as a category in addition to some other broad topical category , so that events are listed via category in nav bar not as a page.

    How will it be different?

    And if anyone can offer tips on migration from EC3 to TEC please advise.

    Hi,

    First, there are known problems with TEC and Thesis.

    TEC creates a category "Events" for all event posts. Each event is a post that can be called in the loop using normal WP template tags. Despite this, the two plugins will behave differently because TEC produces its own display templates for events. There's no built-in way to just call up a loop of events posts.

    This is on our list of things to build, but there are other pressing issues to look at first. If possible, I suggest setting up a development version of your site and start tweaking. I think switching between the two will be tricky, but not impossible.

    I think you're the first person to try a big switch between events plugins. If you do it, let us know how it goes.

    Best,

    Justin
