Support » Plugin: Events Manager » One event details page per recurring event

    Hi,

    I’m planning to work a lot with recurring events. This will create a lot of (duplicate content) since the event description on all pages will be the same.

    What might be a possible solution for this is to create a page with the event description. Within Events Manager, there should be an additional option for recurring events to link to this page. The links to the recurring events would then link to this page.

    That way it is possible to create one strong page (in terms of SEO and maintainability) instead of multiple detail pages for more or less the same event.

    I’d love to hear your opinion on this (or maybe something like this is already possible?)

    sorry but Im afraid that this is not possible at the moment.

    @glennm I agree that would be a phenomenal option. It would help with SEO and I think make it easier to maintain. Hopefully they’ll add it in a future release.

    Any update on this?

    I have been using the Events Made Easy plugin which provides the option to add an “external link” to an event. The links to the event then go to the URL instead of the events page created by the events plugin.

    I’d love to see this feature integraded in Events Manager as it looks to provide more flexibility than the other plugin.

    The Calendarize it! plugin has another apporoach for the duplicate content issue.

    They work with one URL for recurring events, but add URL parameters to the link for the other dates. For example:
    events/wordcamp-paris-2016/ and events/wordcamp-paris-2016/?event_rdate=20160605090000,20160605180000

    I’d love to see an update on this topic, as I really think a sulution for the duplicate content (as described above) would be a valuable addition to this wonderful Events Manager plugin.

    As far as I know, there are no plans to implement something like this.

    A workaround would be to use a custom attribute to hold the external URL:
