Past Events Extension

Description

Adds “Past Events” support to sites running the excellent Tyler events theme.

Can set sessions to be “Past Session”, and so hidden from “schedule” page. Instead the past sessions are now listed on a “past-sessions” page.

Features

  • Set Sessions to “Past Session” state, thus removing them from appearing in the default schedule
  • Built-in ‘past-sessions’ page that lists all the past sessions.
  • Past sessions can easily be identified through the admin sessions listing

With the PRO version you get even more options

Pro version key features;

  • Past Sessions Listing Shortcode – Supports date-ranges so you can have multiple past events listings, each on there own page, with full control over the rest of the page content

  • Additional Video setting – Add embedded video for each past-session (e.g. from Vimeo, YouTube); ideal to show off past presentations.

  • Additional Slide-deck link setting – Add a link to slide-decks used for each session.

  • Enhanced Single-Session page – Shows the embedded video and slide links
