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,

    We are happy to announg that there are now many shortcodes available for The Events Calendar since this feature was first requested. The majority of this feature has already been released as part of Events Calendar Pro (https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/pro-widget-shortcodes/).

    This was a rather monolothic request covering shortcodes of every kind. From our measurements most voters and forum commenters needed the shortcodes that are now available. However we still have one more type of shortcode on our roadmap: Embedding the full calendar view including the Tribe bar in any page. This is both the least requested shortcode and by far the hardest to develop, so it is taking a bit longer than all of the others.

    Cheers!
    - The Modern Tribe Support Team

        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 PytlikGeorge 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!

      • Leo PrietoLeo Prieto commented  · 

        Something like what Jason commented back on 05/22 would be amazing. Or something like:

        [tribe_events venue="myvenue" category="mycategory" view="map" posts-per-page="40"]

        It would be great if you could update your answer now that it's been more than 6 months. Looking forward to this feature as a TEC PRO customer with lots of venues! :)

        Barry Hughes has already implemented much this requested shortcode functionality in Event Rocket plugin. And now he's abandoning it. And he is/was a TEC developer. WTH is going on there?
        Anyhow, my favorite part is the Inline Templates which allow embedding event data almost anywhere.
        https://github.com/barryhughes/event-rocket/wiki/Embedded-Events:-Inline-Templates

        Just make it happen guys! Everyone is begging for something beyond dedicated calendar pages.

        Thanks for your efforts.

        It would be really good to have a shortcode for photo view to add any page or post

      • KevinKevin commented  · 

        After 780 votes, i'm hoping this is going to happen! The mini Calendar widget just isn't enought. I currently I have a slider on my page with the calendar but the ONLY WAY i can incorporate an image above the calendar is by adding some HTML code in "Settings>Display>Add HTML before event content". The problem with this is that it places that image on other pages related to Events Calendar. including the Event detail pages! So it's all or nothing! this solution is not effective at all. Since the Main calendar doesn't function like a page, I can't even place a slider or graphic above it through my Theme functions. The main calendar is simply too independent to incorporate within my theme. PLEASE release this feature!

        I just had an issue where I wanted to hide the event meta box on the front end and also the tickets box. I only needed to do this on a couple of events and did not want to alter the default templates and change every event. Maybe shortcode could be used to show/hide each of these sections on an event-by-event basis?

        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  · 

        Hi,

        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.

      • ReCreativeReCreative commented  · 

        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.
        Thank you.

      • 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!!!
