Recommend a WordPress Plugin to Handle Events? WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi,
I am looking for a specific plugin that let's a user mark their Post as an "<strong>Event</strong>" and basically set a <strong>date</strong> for that Event on the Post page. Once that is done, the post gets published as a normal post would be onto the site. The main part is that I would like the Events to show up on the Sidebar as a list like [[LINK href="http://mirzar.com/ember/wp-events.png"]]this screenshot[[/LINK]]. Also as shown on the screenshot, I would like the reader to be able to toggle through months by clicking the left/right arrow.

I know there are tons of wordpress Events/Calendar Plugins out there but I could not find anything that exactly fits my needs. Also I would like to display the Events list on the sidebar but I am not using a Dynamic Sidebar so it would be cool if there were some PHP code I could just paste into sidebar.php to display the events.

That's the one I am using now. But it does not seem to have an option to filter by month. See site here - http://bit.ly/ioblog


Peter Michael comments:

EC3 has many options & filters, as described here:

It can easily be customized to be displayed in your sidebar and in the regular WP posts list.

Just checkout the demo.


Mirza Rahman comments:

See in the demo where it says Upcoming events, thats exactly what I want. But I also need to be able to Filter by month as shown in the screenshot. So i could switch months under neath upcoming events


idt comments:

Try changing the month of the calendar above the Upcoming events and you'll see that the events will also change based on the selected moth.


Mirza Rahman comments:

Yeah I get that. I basically just need that functionality on the Upcoming Events list somehow. I tried editing the plugin but with no luck. Any clue on how that can be achieved?

"event calendar" works great. can turn any post or page into a timed "event" which you can then display in a widget. Using it now on this site: http://organicdigital.com/prama
