    Hi nickth,

    No, I’m afraid the plugin doesn’t use shortcodes in any way.

    To add content to an event’s single view, just add it into the event description on eventbrite.com. To show this same info on the listing page, you can add the <?php the_content() ?> template tag to eventbrite-index.php for your theme; for more details, see this article: http://themeshaper.com/2014/12/08/working-with-the-eventbrite-api-plugin/

    Oh, and to have custom content from the WordPress side, you’ll need to set up a system that fetches the events and inserts them as posts into your WordPress database; currently, the events and their views are generated on the fly (you’ll notice that no events show up in the admin). Not the simplest solution, but doable by a WordPress developer.

    Plz add a shortcode to make it easier. Found this way too hard and difficult to get working well, just linked to the EventBrite page instead, so much easier, but doesn’t integrate with the site.

    Hi Nick,

    We currently don’t plans to add any shortcodes (although a developer could certainly do this for you). And you’re right, the plugin is really about the integration, and giving developers the tools to do any additional integration (like shortcodes) that users can come up with. Thanks for the feedback!

    Great idea, have everyone hire their own developer to make this plugin more useful, rather than Automattic doing it once for everyone! SMH
