Simple Upcoming Events

Event dates are specifed as “date” Custom Field.
Depends on NO external services like Google Calendar.


When you publish a new post, add a Custom Field named “date”, and set its value to the date the event will take place (i.e. “2010-05-02”). That’s it!

Optionally, you can specify the name of the event with a Custom Field named “event-name”. If you don’t specify that, the title of the post is used as the name of the event.

  • Being more forgiving of different date formats of date Custom Field like “2009.9.27” or “2009/09/27”
