Events Manager – Events / Locations Slider


This plugin lets you create a slider (carousel or fade) for your upcoming Events Manager events and/or locations. You can use the exact same parameters as you are already used to in Events Manager.
[events_slider scope=”future” category=”3″]

It supports all native Events Manager features:
If it works in EM, it should work in this slider as well. 🙂

  • Supports all native Events Manager arguments
  • Supports Event Placeholders and Location Placeholders
  • Supports full HTML formatting
  • MultiSite compatible: [events_slider blog=”all”]

The plugin core is based on bxSlider.
