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!
It would be really good to have a shortcode for photo view to add any page or post
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.
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.
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.
An important feature is the ability to have a widget or shortcode to be inserted inside of the homepage or in another pages with the ability to view a map with points of events such as the map-view; same feature with the search filter.
We had purchased your plugin for that, but it doesn't have that feature.
There is a widget available for latest events, but what if i want a limited number of latest events on a page or may be that shortcode could run with .php files.
My use case is to build the descripton of a given class I offer once. Each class isn't recurring, but this way users can build the details of a given event once. I realize that you can duplicate the events once built, but if I change an aspect of the class, things to bring, etc. I have to touch all of the calendar events now.
It would be awesome to have the flexibility to pull the calendar to a page (eg. Through shortcode).
Currently I have to mess around the codes to achieve this so I can add text before or after just the main calendar page when I am using the default page template and not the ecp page template. And this explains why I am not using the "add text before/ after HTML" fields on the admin panel.

Since this feature was first requested, we’ve added a number of cool widget shortcodes to Events Calendar PRO:https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/pro-widget-shortcodes/.
We’re currently developing additional shortcodes, including one to post your full Month View into a page or post. We don’t have a specific release date for it, but we’re eager to have it included in an upcoming feature release.
Our upcoming release (4.2) does include an exciting Oembed feature which allows you to include event details within any page or post- that will be a great solution for those of you looking to share events that way :)

Chad Lewine, we are planning to release this functionality very soon (1-2 months if all goes to plan). Hopefully it'll please you and many others once released! If you do request a refund at this time, you can come back anytime.
Chad Lewine commented
I am really disappointed with the flexibility of shortcodes. Truly not worth the price tag. Will be asking for a refund.
No date on this release? How can you just be brushing off what everyone wants? A most basic feature that is included on all the cheap $15 and free plugins.
Thanks for sharing your feedback about this issue. It's our most popular feature request and is showing in Started status so please understand we're working on it but cannot provide an ETA at this time.
If you have any questions about a planned or recent purchase, please open a new thread at https://theeventscalendar.com/support/

My site is primarily an events calendar with the events listing on the home page. I was so excited about this plugin until I found out it needs an entire page in which to thrive. So I'm going to have to start my site with a different events plugin. Sure am glad I didn't pay for the pro version before giving it a try.

I just paid nearly $500 for the entire bundle of your event suite and I can't add a simple photo view of events on my home page (or any part of a page) since there is no shortcode. I thought for sure that the bundle at this price would provide a ton of views and shortcodes. This event suite is way too limited for this price tag. Can I get my money back?
looking forward to this as well
Nice plugin just purchased it... BUT the implementation sucks for adding calendars... Need shortcodes so it can be used with page builders etc... i CANT believe this is not a standard feature!
Thank you all for your great feedback and for your patience on this one.
We can't wait either. Stay tuned!
@Peter this specific feature will focus mainly on the shortcodes.
You are more than welcome to add your feedback on other User Voice threads about calendar printing.
Peter Wennersten commented
Great news with all the shortcode extensions. Can you also include third part printing shortcodes like print friendly so we can print events and monthly calendars?
Can't wait to be able to embed the full calendar into a sublevel page. I've had to use another calendar plugin that does support this on a few projects now...
This is such a basic, so-much-needed feature I can't even say. I've been using this plugin since it's very first version and have been asking and asking. I absolutely cannot wait until we can do just the simple thing of embedding the full calendar anywhere, on a page we can completely control, with a page title we can completely control, and be able to add other elements to the page. PLEASE HURRY ON THIS ONE!!!
We need to be able to display the normal month calendar and list into a page.
Looking for simple shortcode functionality to embed weekly view onto an existing page on my website. Count 1 vote for me.
Not having a shortcode to display the calendar the same way it does with a template is creating all kinds of headaches for me. My theme uses breadcrumbs which break with your plugin. If I could simply create a page and drop the shortcode there for the calendar, it would work perfectly. As it stands now, I either have to ditch this plugin or invest 5-6 hours of development time creating the code to make it work. Please, please, pretty please bump this up the list of development priorities!
Need to be able to display photo view via shortcode on any page. For a paid plugin this should be standard.
We want to thank you all for your continuing support on this feature request :-)
As stated in the status above, we have finally started work on this feature (as well as other wonderful features).
Thank you for your patience as we are coding as fast as we can!

What about a community events shortcode? Would be great to have a list of 'my events' as part of a user profile page.
Yves De Croock commented
a shortcode for photo view to be added to any page, good to see it got started and hoping that after 10 months this feature will be available soon !
George Pytlik commented
Desperately hoping for this feature. It's becoming increasingly important with so many themes using the Featured Image for the page header and overlaying transparent logo and menu over that image. Without an actual page to use for the background header image, the calendar ends up on a page with a blank header area: no logo, no menu. Really awkward.
Can't wait for this one. This would make a world of a difference to non coder like myself. Goodluck guys!
