Events in Gozo

Description

EventsInGozo.com aims to serve as a centralized hub for all events taking place on the island of Gozo. Organizers will create and submit their events, ensuring that each listing includes essential details for interested visitors, such as a concise description, dates, times, location, category, and accompanying pictures.

The plugin can then be installed in a third-party WordPress website and this retrieves specific events which are tailored for that particular website. Data is retrieved securely through the use of authentication. These authentication details must be requested from https://eventsingozo.com/request-api-plugin/ and once the application is accepted, the corresponding details are provided which must be set up in the plugin’s settings.
