GD > Event Schedules

All Widgets come as Widgets, Shortcodes or Blocks. Learn more about our Super Duper Widgets.

The Event Schedules widget displays the event schedules on the frontend. It works with the Events CPT provided by the Events Manager extension, as well as any other CPT that you might assign as an Events CPT.

In order to use the Events Calendar, you need to have the Events extension installed and activated.

How it Works?

Events Schedules provides one Super Duper widget -- that can be used as a widget, shortcode or block. You can choose to use any Events CPT with the Event Schedules widget, as well as customize its features or options such as the start day of the week in month-view.

Customizing GD > Event Schedules

It is possible to create new schedule templates using code snippets like this:

function gd_snippet_get_schedule_templates( $templates ) {
	$templates[] = '{start_date} . {start_time}';

	return $templates;
add_filter( 'geodir_event_get_schedule_templates', 'gd_snippet_get_schedule_templates', 10, 1 );

Here is an example implementation

Use shortcode in archive item template:
[geodir_event_schedules type="upcoming" number="1" use_current="1"]

Add this snippet:

function gd_snippet_schedule_parse_template( $content, $item, $schedule, $template, $date_format, $time_format ) {
	$start_date_strtotime = strtotime( $schedule->start_date );

	$content = '<div class="_geodir-wrap"><div class="_geodir-start-M">' . date_i18n( 'M', $start_date_strtotime ) . '</div><div class="_geodir-start-j">' . date_i18n( 'j', $start_date_strtotime ) . '</div><div class="_geodir-start-D">' . date_i18n( 'D', $start_date_strtotime ) . '</div></div>';

	return $content;
add_filter( 'geodir_event_widget_schedules_parse_template', 'gd_snippet_schedule_parse_template', 10, 6 );
