    Very Simple Event List

    Add to List

    About

    This is a very simple plugin to display a list of events.

    Use a shortcode to display events on a page or use the widget.

    You can personalize your event list via the settingspage or by adding attributes to the shortcode or the widget.

    How to use

    After installation go to menu item “Events” and start adding your events.

    Create a page and:

    • Use shortcode [vsel] to display upcoming events (including today)
    • Use shortcode [vsel-past-events] to display past events
    • Use shortcode [vsel-current-events] to display current events
    • Use shortcode [vsel-all-events] to display all events

    Or go to Appearance > Widgets and add the widget to your sidebar.

    Settingspage

    Via Settings > VSEL you can:

    • Keep events and settings when uninstalling plugin
    • Show a summary instead of all content
    • Link title to the single event page
    • Link featured image to the single event page
    • Set size that is being used for the featured image
    • Change or hide event labels

    Shortcode attributes

    You can set amount of events per page. This will overwrite amount set in Settings > Reading.

    • Example: [vsel posts_per_page=5]

    You can display events from certain categories. You should enter the category slug. The slug is not always the same as the name of the category.

    • Example: [vsel event_cat="first-category, second-category"]

    The default order of the upcoming and current events list is ascending. The default order of the past and all events list is descending.

    • Change order from ascending to descending: [vsel order=desc]
    • Change order from descending to ascending: [vsel order=asc]

    You can change the text that is being displayed when there are no events.

    • Example: [vsel no_events_text="your text here"]

    You can also add multiple attributes. Use a single whitespace to separate multiple attributes.

    • Example: [vsel posts_per_page=5 event_cat="first-category, second-category"]

    Widget attributes

    The widget supports the same attributes. Enter them without shortcode itself and without brackets.

    Example 1:

    • If shortcode attribute is: [vsel posts_per_page=5]
    • Widget attribute will be: posts_per_page=5

    Example 2:

    • If shortcode attribute is: [vsel event_cat="first-category, second-category"]
    • Widget attribute will be: event_cat="first-category, second-category"

    Featured image

    WordPress creates duplicate images in different sizes upon upload. These sizes can be set via Settings > Media.

    Via the settingspage you can change the default image size that is being used for the featured image.

    By default the “post-thumbnail” size of your theme is being used. But in case of a small size, you might want to change this to avoid a tiny or blurry featured image.

    I have set the featured image width at max. 40% of the event content area.

    The featured image in a single event is handled by your theme.

    Theme template files

    Plugin has basic support for theme template files that are being used to display a single event, the event category page and the search results page.

    It does one thing: it hooks into the the_content() and the_excerpt() function.

    If your theme uses it’s own customized version and you visit one of the pages mentioned above, the event(s) might not be displayed properly or not at all.

    Single event

    In most cases PHP file “single” is being used to display a single event. This file is located in your theme folder.

    Because a theme file is being used, it might not be displayed properly.

    If you want to customize it and using custom CSS is not enough, you can add a PHP file called “single-event” in your theme folder and customize it to your needs.

    Event category page

    In most cases PHP file “archive” is being used to display a category (archive) page. This file is located in your theme folder.

    Because a theme file is being used, it might not be displayed properly.

    If you want to customize it and using custom CSS is not enough, you can add a PHP file called “taxonomy-event_cat” in your theme folder and customize it to your needs.

    You can also use a shortcode on a page to display events from certain categories. For more info check the “Shortcode attributes” section.

    The setting to display a summary instead of all content will only work when using a shortcode on a page.

    Search results page

    You can list events on your search results page, using a custom search query.

    PHP file “search” is being used to display search results. This file is located in your theme folder.

    Because a theme file is being used, it might not be displayed properly.

    If you want to customize it and using custom CSS is not enough, you should hook into this file or modify this file.

    Uninstall

    If you uninstall plugin via dashboard all events and settings will be removed from database.

    It removes all posts with (custom) post type “event”.

    You can avoid this via Settings > VSEL.
