WordPress - All-in-One Event Calendar generator

In this article

☝️ Note: This generator is only available in the Pro version.

With this dynamic slide generator you can show the contents of your events.

Tutorial

1
Creating a new dynamic slide

To get started, go to any Slider Settings page and add a new dynamic slide. Choose All-in-One Event Calendar.

2
Configuring the generator

Set up your generator. Choose the settings you want. Popular options you probably want to configure: category where your content will be pulled from, the number of slides you want to have, the ordering of the content.

You can also click on the View Records button to see the data you'll be creating your slide with.

When you're done, click on Add.

3
Editing the dynamic slide

After you saved your generator, you'll be redirected to the Slide Editor to set up the look of your slide. You can create your content by using variables.

Configuration

You can use these options to set what you want your generator to show.

Filter

Category

You can select the categories from where you want the events.

Tag

You can select tags to filter your events from the selected categories.

Recurring events

You can choose recurring or not recurring events here. If you choose recurring events the Started and Ended settings will be ignored, since there are multiple starting and ending dates. The "Order by" option will use the very first date of this event.

☝️ Note: The recurring options had to be given, because their multiple starting and ending dates are handled differently in All-in-One Event Calendar's code, so the Started and Ended date checkings and the date ordering options can only look at the first start and ending dates of these events. 

But with these two options you could handle them in two separate dynamic slides, just the recurring events slide can't be handled by dates, as their multiple dates wouldn't allow to give an order or to decide wether or not they have started or ended.
Started

You can choose to only show those events, which haven't started yet, or already starter, or all.

Ended

You can choose to only show those events, which haven't ended yet, or already ended, or all.

☝️ Note: If you have a problem with the  Started and  Ended filters, that you see events you think shouldn't be there, check out  this article.
Create custom date variables

You can write any date format in separate lines, and new variables will be created for them.

Translate your custom date variables

You can translate your date variables, if your server didn't set it up php functions to display them on your language. Write the original text, like Monday then two | signs, and the text you want it to be translated to, for example Montag. Together: Monday||Montag.

Date function

This function will be used to format these custom date variables. Usually the date_i18n works, but if your date will be off a little bit, then try out the other one.

  • Event start date
