This plugin adds a basic "upcoming events" calendar of links to WordPress.
This plugin is useful for listing speaking engagements, upcoming social events, or other calendar listings which link outside of your site. It adds a special link category for "Events Calendar" with meta fields for location and date. Any links in this category can be displayed through a widget withoption to display all events or only future events, show in ascending/descending order, and options to show or hide link images and descriptions.
The Start Date and End Date fields are stored as text fields and can be entered as any standard php-readable date format (i.e. "Aug 1, 2010 5:00pm", "10/4/11", and "November 2012" are all acceptable, and will be ordered properly and displayed just as they are entered). The End Date field is optional; if included, it will display the dates as a range; if not, only the first date will be displayed.
There is an option to use dates exactly as they are entered (may look better in some cases, but doesn't work very well for non-US English dates) or to use WordPress's localized date formatting.
Styling is customizable through css: each field is given its own class. A basic stylesheet is included in the plugin, but feel free to modify that or delete it and use your own stylesheet to override. You can also copy the default stylesheet to your theme directory or a new directory called
/wp-content/plugins/gad-events-custom/ to preserve any changes to make against future plugin/theme upgrades.
