The Events Calendar
Using/Displaying Calendar (6 posts)

    This seems like a dumb question, but how do I implement the calendar on a specific page? Is there a short code to use in the body of a post? I can't find any information other than how to install the plug in...

    I'm also confused as to how you implement this into a specific page. Although I'm looking to do a list, not the calendar.

    You add new events using the built-in user interface. Click "Add new" and below the main content area you mark the "yes" radio button where it says "Is this post an event?".

    Move on to add the name of the event using the UI title option. The description goes in the main content input area and then you finish it off with start date and the other event details.

    The plugin creates a new category called "Events" (this could be wrong since I activated the plugin a while back and returned today and added this). Browse to yourdomain.tld/category/events/ to see the calendar overview where you also have the option to see upcoming events in grid view.

    My test post/calendar/grid can be seen at http://www.hyrafilmonline.se/category/events/upcoming

    To display a list rather than showing of the calendar or grid view my best bet is to edit the plugin files as outlined in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-the-events-calendar-post-content-first-map-and-events-details-after?replies=11#post-1491585.

    Thanks bjornsennbrink,

    But what I'm asking is how do you create a page for the calendar? For example, on your site. How could you create a calendar link from your top bar (the green links) that will display a page with the calendar and then your permanent information on the right side. Is there a shortcode I can paste into a new page to have it display the calendar?

    @codekonkey72: I understand your question and I am looking to build a similar feature myself. Maybe I'll add it here if I found a working one (it being for a client).

    Another solution is to add a direct link to domain.tld/category/events/ and customize the looks of that page using a "category-{slug}.php" where slug in this case being "events".

    Hi All
    I think I may be able to help.
    I wanted to show this page as a page for my members, so this is what I did. The URL to view the calendar on the front-end is http://www.yoursite.com/category/events/ (so mine is http://www.hukanuiyouth.com/category/events/). So what I did was I installed the plugin Page Links To, and followed the instructions there. So on my website I have the link up the top "What's Happening", which re-directs to the calendar.
    Hope this helps you all. Let me know if you need more info.
