Bizarski Cute Gigs

Description

A simple plugin for musicians to show off their gigs in an elegant way. Perfect for rock bands. You can display upcoming and past events in a page or a post, using shortcodes. Upcoming events can also be displayed in a widget. Each gig can have its own poster and links. When the poster thumbnail is clicked, the full-size image is displayed in a Fancybox window (jQuery). Size of thumbnails is customizable.

Shortcodes

  • Display 5 past gigs after skipping 10: [cutegigs_past_gigs limit=5 offset=10]
  • Display 10 past gigs with hidden buttons: [cutegigs_past_gigs limit=10 hide_buttons=1]

Known issues

  • Sometimes the Fancybox window appears behind the website menu. To fix this issue, go to your theme’s CSS file and look for z-index rules that have a value higher than 1100. Change their value to 1099 and save the file.
  • The plugin “Google Analytics for WordPress by Yoast” causes Fancybox to misbehave.
  • Upgrading from version 1.0.0 to any newer version will delete all uploaded posters.
  • All versions below 1.2.0 will cause issues in the Dashboard of WordPress 3.5 and above.
