WordPress Events

Create and advertise events

Plugin

You can use the available plugin: “The events Calendar” (https://wordpress.org/plugins/the-events-calendar/ )events plugin

If the dedicated left menu is not available, ask your site administrator to activate this plugin.

With this plugin, you can:

  • Create events
  • List them
  • Provide venue details and a google map
  • Export Google Calendar and iCal

All your upcoming events are available in the automatically created page:

<your website URL>/events/

Note: do not create a page titled “events” as the URL might conflict with the above default URL from the plugin.

Each event you create is actually a post, which has a dedicated URL. You can then point to this event using this URL.

Include an event, or a list of events in a page

Events or list of events can be displayed by a dedicated widget (see widgets section) called “Events List”. Widgets usually go to a sidebar, but if you wish to display this list in a page, you need to activate an extra plugin “amr shortcode any widget“. This plugin will allow you to call the widget in a page, using a shortcode (see shortcode section below). The procedure is the following:

  • Activate the amr shortcode any widget plugin.
  • Go to Appearance / Widgets.
  • Drag and drop the RSS widget to the field “Widgets for Shortcodes”.
  • Get the associated shortcode at the bottom of your new added item: expl. “To use as shortcode with id: [do_widget id=tribe-events-list-widget-2]“.
  • Now go to a page and paste this shortcode in the text of the page.

Jobs submitted with time limit exceeding the partition limit will be rejected.   Purchasing RACC nodes owned by projects can  be requested using the Self Service Portal form,  see /https://research.reading.ac.uk/act/knowledgebase/racc-paid-for-resources/....
