Events Manager
[resolved] Custom Templates...Where to begin? Confused. HELP PLEASE! (4 posts)

    I am very new to designing WordPress templates, in fact, this is my first 'real' attempt at it. I am designing a food truck website that I am hoping to integrate the events manager plugin into the site. The events manager plugin is going to be the core functionality of the entire site.

    I am very confused as to where i need to integrate the events manager code into a page template. For example, on the front page design I created in html (it is not in wordpress yet), I am wanting to create a custom 5-day schedule that uses events manager and each is linked to its own post with its content. You can see the design mockup here: http://www.guerrillastreetfood.com/em/ . I am also wanting to include a 'Today' section which would be a focus area on the front page displaying 'today's event'.

    I saw that there is an 'Events' widget that basically has all the attributes I would want to use for the custom 5-day schedule I am wanting to create in my page template, but I really don't know where to start.

    If there is anyone who can help point me in the right direction to get started I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Thank you in advance!


    ps. I am a designer, and i really get lost with programming...left brain/right brain :)

    Atm there's no scope specific to 5 days, only months, so you'd have to do a PHP solution for this.....

    You'd probably want to do something similar to

    [events_list scope="2012-08-26,2012-08-31"]

    Hey 3pt, I too am trying to build a food truck website, and too are having trouble finding an appropriate map widget that can handle multiple locations and look good. I was wondering if you have had any luck in the last 4 months?
