    I install the Easy Events. The backoffice seems fine. I add an event. I add a program. I add the widget Easy Events to my template area. But nothing appears on my website related with Easy Events.

    In this moment the Easy Events would appear on the last column of footer:

    Any thoughts?

    Did you maybe add only events in the past? The widget shows only events from today onwards (Upcoming Events) but the shortcode shows all events even those in the past (the past are greyed out, today is bold and the future normal text).

    If you only have past events then the widget does not show itself at all.

    Also if you did not choose "combined events" but instead choose a particular programme, then you will not see the widget if there are no events for that programme.

    Thanks. Now I see the widget online. The reason was in your first question.

    But now, I'm seeing the result:

    and don't understand it.

    1) I fill the event and the program, and I merged the both. But the result is only a list without any link from the event to the program. It isn't supposed that we have a list with a link to a description?

    2) In program form you have an URL field. When I put something like URL address like http://www.portugal.pt, it is transformed in www-portugal-pt . (!?) I supposed that is a link to an official page event, or PDF program or something like that. So, what is the really funcion of this field?

    I don't understand your first link - it isn't clear what it is about or if Easy Event is even shown on that site.

    There is no link from the event to the programme in the widget. If you want a page of events for the programme you must create that page and and a shortcode for the events to it [easy-events p="programme_slug"]. If you want a link to a page or post about the event then you must create that page or post first then add the url with html yourself in the description for the event.

    Think of a programme as nothing more than a category. It doesn't serve any other purpose. The programme slug isn't a way to get a programme page url but just a way to filter the events. The description is only shown in as a tool tip when you hover over the programme marker.

    See ndar.org.uk for an example. The widget is shown on the front page, the Events page (a standard WP page) shows events for one programme and a combined list of all the five programmes. Here you can see how the widget and shortcode have been designed to work together. Any links in the widget event descriptions have been added using html in the description.

    I hope this helps you understand how to use the plugin.
