Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Is it not possible to list a 2 day event 9a-5p?

  • Resolved imaquila


    I’m trying to use the free version but so far the only options I can find are either limiting the event to just the starting date with the correct times OR making the event sound like a slumber party from 9a one day to 4p the next. Is there nothing in between for a 2 day event or have I missed something?

    Your help would be very welcomed!

  • Hi @imaquila,

    Thanks for taking the time to reach out! Unfortunately, recurring multi-day events of this type are only supported with our premium calendar plugin, Events Calendar PRO. If you need to create an event that spans multiple days in this way using our free plugin, I’d suggest either:

    a) creating an all-day event that spans every day of the event and listing the correct opening and closing times in your event description
    b) creating an event for the first day of your event series and using a third-party post duplicating plugin to create duplicates for each subsequent day–each event can then be referred to as “day 1”, “day 2”, etc.

    If you’re interested in learning more about Events Calendar PRO, you can find more information on our site here.

    I hope that helps! Thanks again, and please don’t hesitate to follow up if you should have any other questions! 🙂

    Thanks for your reply. Since there’s no way to use the calendar and have it display correctly, can you tell me how to inactivate the calendar for that event?

    Thanks again for your time and patience with a “newbie”.

    Good evening @imaquila,

    You can “deactivate” the calendar for a specific event in a few ways:

    1. Delete that event
    2. Change that event to “Draft” status
    3. Make that event “Private”
    4. Simply hide it with CSS

    That being said, I believe suggestion b) from Caroline could totally be a solution for you using a plugin such as:

    Have a great day!

    Hi GeoffBel
    Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I just wanted to clarify whether or not your suggestions 1-3 eliminate the event or just hides it from the calendar. I do not want to eliminate the event. I just want to find a way to display the information correctly.
    Thanks Again for your assistance

    Hi @imaquila,

    Thanks for following up! Both suggestions 2 and 3 from Geoff’s list above will hide your event from public view without deleting it entirely, if that’s your aim. That said, I’d definitely consider pursuing option B from earlier in our conversation–with the third-party plugin Geoff recommended, I think you’ll find that it’s a fairly simple way to achieve the correct display of information that you’re looking for!

    I hope that helps! Thanks again, and let us know if you should have any other questions!
