Installation

  • Unpack the downloaded zipped file
  • Upload the “event-page” folder to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  • Log into WordPress
  • Go to the “Plugins” page
  • Activate the Event Page Plugin
  • You’ll need to create a new template file entitled “events.php”
    ** To do this copy your file entitled page.php and name it events.php.
    ** Place this code <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Events
    */
    ?>
    on the first line of the file.
    ** Remove the code that prints the post to the page and replace it with this code: <?php tern_wp_events(); ?>
    ** Upload the new file to the server.
  • Now you’ll need to create a new page which you can title whatever you like.
  • Assign this page to the template entitled “Events”
  • Remember to alter your Event Page settings to reflect the new name of this page and any other options you may wish to alter.
  • That should be it. View the page and you should see the Event Page in its moderately useful glory!
