Build Your Perfect Calendar in Minutes

Loxi takes all of the work out of creating events and is delightfully simple to set up. There’s no coding required, no theme conflicts to worry about, it looks like a million bucks right out of the box, AND it works on all devices. Spend less time configuring and more time promoting your events!

An Online Calendar That Scales With You

Loxi is a fully-hosted calendar, meaning you never have to worry about overloading your WordPress database. Your Loxi calendar can hold as many events as you need and lets you publish an unlimited number of events. That’s right, go ahead and create events freely and let Loxi carry the load while you enjoy the speed and performance of our servers, regardless of how many events you host.

Your Events are Always Backed Up and Safe

Your calendar is always online and available to view, even if your site goes down. We actively monitor our servers and back everything up on a regular basis to ensure that your events and data are always secure not matter what happens with your WordPress installation.

Take Your Events With You Anywhere

Do I need a Loxi account to use this plugin?

Shortcode Examples

The default shortcode to embed your Loxi calendar is: [loxi calendar="my-awesome-calendar"].

Customize the appearance of the calendar with any of the following:

  • calendar: Your calendar ID (e.g. my-awesome-calendar if your calendar URL is https://my-awesome-calendar.loxi.io)
  • default-layout: Accepts month or list
  • color: Sets the primary color of the calendar with a hex value (e.g. #ff9800)
  • show-search-filter: Set to 1 to show the keyword search and 0 to hide it
  • show-category-filter: Set to 1 to show the category filter dropdown and 0 to hide it
  • show-location-filter: Set to 1 to show the location filter dropdown and 0 to hide it
  • show-view-switcher: Set to 1 to allow visitors to switch views and 0 to disable it

An orange calendar that displays the month view with the view switcher disabled would be:

[loxi calendar="my-awesome-calendar" default-layout="month" color="#ff9800" show-view-switcher="0"]

…where my-awesome-calendar is the ID of your calendar or the calendar you want to embed.
