Support » Plugins and Hacks » The Events Calendar » Date as part of the Event-URL

  • Hi,

    is it possible (or is it planned to be) to let the date be automatically part of the event url as it is possible for WordPress blog posts?

    We have a lot of Events with the same name, which automatically get a url like /event/my-event-5.

    I could change these urls after saving it with the custom permalink plugin, but I would rather have them named automatically using the date like

    /event/2013-01-30-my-event/
    or /event/2013/01/30/my-event/

    Hey tautologe. I’ve looked through our older forum threads on both this page and the PRO forum, and didn’t find any other threads related to this (so alas I have no frame of reference or past solution to link you to). But I talked to my colleague Jonah and he said that there might be a relatively easy way to hook into the slug and modify that pre-save and include the event date. He also pointed me to this article: http://ostedesign.com/automatically-change-post-slug-and-permalink-when-editing-wordpress-title. You’d just need to add in the event date and you should be set.

    Hope that helps and good luck.
