[Resolved] Upcoming Events Widget Based on Location?

  • Hello…Im trying to incorporate event manager plugin into a site…And I plan to use the Widget for Upcoming Events…

    However, my issue is, since this site has Events for numerous different Cities/States is there a way that the Widget on the sidebar can be filtered based on the location the visitor to the site is from?…

    For example, if a random visitor from California comes to the site…then, seeing “Upcoming Events” on the Widget for upcoming events in New York might not be helpful.

    I do know Events can be filtered on the main Event List Page…However, I need to know if this can be done on the widget.

    Is there away a visitor can change/filter what Upcoming Events are being displayed on the widget based on their location?

    Any type of reply or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    At the moment there’s no way to offer that option directly with the standard widgets that come with the plugin. But there’s a workaround that I think will achieve the same thing.

    Using a Text widget, you could create static links to the dedicated location pages. Those links would look something like this:

    <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/locations/san-francisco/">San Francisco</a>

    Obviously you’d need to change yoursite.com and the location to suit your site and the locations you want to highlight.

    Would that work?

    hmmm, that might be a possible option…Maybe I can create a city list of primary cities..and the visitor would just need to select the appropriate one that way.

    Thank you, I appreciate the suggestion – I will look into this.
