I suggest you ...

Shortcode ability for simple implimentation on any page/post.

The one thing some competitors have over tri.be is offering ability to implement across existing pages using short codes which call either forms, or categories or most certain modular aspects. Currently there's way too much fiddling around with CSS and code to get things looking right - other than this Events Calendar trumps!

    Howdy y’all,
    Over the past few releases we have rolled out a number of shortcodes including allowing you to embed the Mini Calendar and List Widget into pages. We are also hard at work on making the the full calendar views, such as Month, List, etc. embeddable via shortcode. That is no small undertaking and requires some significant underlying architectural changes. This will allow you to embed the main calendar view with the Tribe Bar on other pages, including your home page. This will be released in the coming months. Thanks for all the feedback! We are very excited to offer a full suite of shortcodes.

        It would be nice to have a set of short codes that can be added to any page in a WP Site. This way people with little experience in PHP / CSS can still use - for example - a sidebar and add additional information / features or advertisement.

      • MichaelMichael commented  · 

        When will the Full Month View Calendar have a short code to be placed in different pages?

      • Craig BuchanCraig Buchan commented  · 

        Is there any update on this functionality? Ha similar to Carolin, I thought there would be a short code to drop the photo masonry layout into any page & (heaven forbid) specify which category I wanted listed!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Any idea when the update will be released?

      • CarolinCarolin commented  · 

        Hi! Do you have any update on this? I foolishly thought that it would be easy to drop the photo masonry layout into my homepage but only now after purchase realise that it isn't. Coming up to September now. Any news? Love everything else about ECP and appreciate that it's not a small task!!

      • TomTom commented  · 

        Listing upcoming events in chronological order is OK but some events you want to highlight well beforehand. Shortcode to embed photo view on any page with category filtering option would allow one to easily add events to spotlight on each page.

      • ChuckChuck commented  · 


        Any update on the shortcodes? Will this include the photo view as well?

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        The plug-in needs this functionality badly. I'm being forced into looking at competitors products now.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        This plug in needs more options to display the views in general pages.

        I'd like to see a photoview shortcode so i can place it on a home page.

      • JasonJason commented  · 

        Dude, you need this to utilize all views, something like this would be soooo incredibly helpful:

        [events_calendar category="my-category" view="map" posts-per-page="40"]

        choose my category
        choose my # of posts to display
        (add a sort ASC/DESC)
        choose my view type

        This is how TEC used to work, it'd be nice if the feature came back into the fold!!!

      • icaica commented  · 

        Yes, please add this feature (calendar month view embedded in pages)! I would recommend your plugin to so many more people if you had this feature.

      • JohnJohn commented  · 

        I'm desperate for this, I'm building a festival website and the ability to the have the photo/masonry view on the website homepage is essential as the other sites we are trying to match all do this. I love Events Calendar and can't wait for them to implement this.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        I look forward to this feature as well. Sounded like April was the goal? How is that coming and where can we see the existing shortcodes?

      • Rob La GattaRob La Gatta commented  · 

        Hey folks! Rob from Modern Tribe here...I head up the support team and wanted to chime in on the thread, since there are a few voices in here clearly eager to see this come to fruition.

        We falsely set expectations here by definitively saying "It will be revealed in early 2015." This was wrong; we were shooting for early 2015, but our planned implementation for this didn't work out the way we wanted to so we started over with a fresh approach. The shortcode is tough to do right and we would rather get something that works for everyone, rather than ship a half-baked solution that only meets some of our users' needs. We realize you guys have been waiting patiently here and we still understand the urgency of this...we're optimistic that the finished product will be worth it and hope to have something to show for it in the coming months.

        Given changes that emerge during the development cycle, and the fact that bugs -- which tend to emerge unexpectedly -- take priority over feature development, every date we announce here on UserVoice is generally a target...not something we've set on stone. I've talked to the team about being more transparent about that going forward. When we have work done and ready for (or through) QA, we'll announce it more concretely as a finished solution ready to ship. Until that point we'll get better at setting expectations here in the community.

        Thanks again to everyone for their feedback here. This is one of our top-requested features, and we would be foolish not to act on it. As we recently did with tickets attendee data (as per my latest comment here: http://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3738379-collect-all-attendee-information-for-multiple-tick) once it is ready to go I will be coming in here and doing a call for beta participants, to see who would be interested in providing some feedback on the finished product :)

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        It is now Early 2015, do you have a time frame as to when you will have the shortcodes available with the new update?


      • Joel StephensJoel Stephens commented  · 

        It's gonna be April 2015—we any closer to the shortcode implementation "in early 2015" as mentioned above?

      • James BJames B commented  · 

        Is there any guess as to when this will be available? We're looking forward to this feature.

      • MattMatt commented  · 

        Much love for full calender short code with category filter options.

      • Modern TribeAdminModern Tribe (Admin, The Events Calendar by Modern Tribe) commented  · 

        @Anonymous That is a cool idea being able to add the ticket box. It is not currently planned though. You should make a separate feature request for that.

        I want to assure everyone that this is still incredibly important to us and we are listening. We have begun work and will release the finished product as soon as we can. Still no hard release date though.
