Post Events


Displays a calendar-style list of links to posts based on an “event-date” custom-field. This allows for an events
calendar populated from within standard posts.


  1. Upload post-events folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate Post Events through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the Post Events widget to a sidebar.

To include a post in the Post Events widget simply add a custom field called “event-date” with the date of the event
listed in ISO format (YYYY-MM-DD eg. 2010-05-29).

The widget can be configured with a title, maximum number of events to list and date format (based on PHP’s date() format strings)


How do I create events?

Add a post with detail of the event, ensuring that you add a custom field called “event-date” with the date of the event in YYYY-MM-DD format.
