Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar Shortcode » Features requests

  • Resolved nadinenb


    First of all a big thank you for your amazing plugin! It extends masterfully the features of The Events Calendar plugin.

    Now I have a couple questions about currently non-existing plugin features. I am wondering if any of the following features can be achieved by adding lines of code to your plugin’s php file.

    Please note that I base all my questions on this image:

    1) Is it possible to display the event search bar above the events list?
    2) is it possible to have a monthly breakdown of the upcoming events? (have the “month year” data displayed in big above each event) Currently it’s difficult to know in which year the upcoming event is happening, see my test website here:
    3) is it possible to have a “read more” button following the excerpts?
    4) I know that you primarily created this plugin to display events set in the future, but out of curiosity do you plan on having the possibility to navigate between the events listed with buttons such as “previous events” and “next events” at the bottom of the list?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

  • I’d like the ability to show only the date on an event, and not the time.

    You’d need to use some code to filter the output, something like this:

    function test_show_date_only( $output ) {
    	return tribe_get_start_date( null, false );
    add_filter( 'ecs_event_list_details', 'test_show_date_only' );

    Ideally you would put this in a new plugin file. If you put it in your themes functions.php it may be overwritten by a future update. Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the kind feedback!

    A lot of these features are beyond the scope of a simple shortcode display of events, and are better handled by the actual calendar/list display from The Events Calendar. Things like “group by month” I’ve added to my event calendar newsletter plugin:

    Post #68

    And may also add it to this shortcode plugin too in a future version.


    Wishlist items:
    – make the duration time and duration venue <div>s instead of <span> so we can better style it
    – add a class parameter, again for styling
    – remove the line break out of echo for title.
    – if event venue (after filtering) is empty, dont echo the at
