Overview of Calendar Widgets
You’ll find events calendar widgets available in The Events Calendar feature of your BBWP site. Use the Appearance → Widgets screen in your site admin to set up all widgets. You can use each widget as many times as you’d like.
Events Calendar Widget
The Events Calendar widget creates a mini-grid calendar in your sidebar. Days with events are darker and show a dot. The current month is clearly labeled in the widget’s header. Readers can view events in the future or past months using the AJAX navigation at the top of the calendar.
You can choose how many events to list below the calendar (if any). Users can click on days with events to update the list with that day’s events. The listed events are linked to the individual event pages. If you choose to show no listed events, the calendar date will link to a Day View showing those events. If you do not enter a title on the widget admin page, none will appear when viewing the widget on the frontend.
Events List Widget
The Events Calendar include The Events List widget which has the ability to set a custom title, an option to display from 1-10 events and a setting to hide the widget when no events are present. You can also use the category-specific filtering to display events from one category.
It also gives site administrators more flexibility regarding what data displays and what doesn’t on the frontend. With 10 display check boxes that can be turned on/off at a moment’s notice, you control how much — or how little — information about the event is seen in the widget.
This Week Widget
You can display events happening this week with the This Week widget. You can display the events happening during the current week in horizontal or vertical layouts. The widget can show up to 10 events per day.
Also, it incorporates a category-specific filter that allows you to pull from one given category instead of the full events list.
Events Countdown Widget
You can use the Events Countdown widget to count the days until a special event. Select an event to showcase and the widgets shows a countdown in your sidebar. You control the title, time increments, and what message to display when the start time of the event is reached.
Featured Venue Widget
You can show a list of events from one venue using the Featured Venue widget which displays the upcoming events for a particular venue. You can edit the title and chose how many events to show. Also, you can opt to have the widget not show if there are no upcoming events.
