Shortcode #_DIRECTIONS Question (6 posts)

    Great Plug-in, Marcus! I have a question.

    I'm trying to generate a directions link for a single event.

    I went into Dashboard > Events > Settings > Events Format > "Default single event format"...

    ...then added #_DIRECTIONS to the text-box. Updated. However, the shortcode does not generate a link to google directions.

    Am I doing this wrong? What is the proper way?

    Best Regards,

    PS: My current work around looks like this:

    <a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=#_ADDRESS #_LOCATIONTOWN #_LOCATIONSTATE">Directions</a>

    Want to ask if placeholder #_DIRECTIONS is a custom placeholder? you might want to read docs @ http://wp-events-plugin.com/tutorials/create-a-custom-placeholder-for-event-formatting

    I maybe wrong, but I don't think it's a custom placeholder.

    Improvement: French, German language updates (thanks to Sebastian), Spanish language updates (thanks to Ricardo)
    Workaround: hopefully no more google balloon scrollbars
    Feature: events can belong to multiple categories now
    Feature: #_CATEGORIES shortcode available, will return a comma-seperated list of categories an event is in
    Feature: #_DIRECTIONS shortcode available, so you can ask for driving directions to an event/location
    Feature: new shortcode available: [display_single_event], eg: [display_single_event id=23]
    Feature: show month or day in events_list if wanted (new parameter for shortcode [events_list]: showperiod=daily|monthly)
    Feature: the attribute 'scope' for the shortcode [events_list] can now contain a date range, eg. [events_list scope=2010-00-00--2010-12-31 limit=200]
    Feature: "limit=0" now shows all events (pending other restrictions) for the shortcode [events_list]
    Bugfix: updating a recurrent event with booking enabled, deleted all existing bookings for each event of the recurrence
