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!
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.

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.

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 :)
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 Stephens commented
It's gonna be April 2015—we any closer to the shortcode implementation "in early 2015" as mentioned above?
James B commented
Is there any guess as to when this will be available? We're looking forward to this feature.
Much love for full calender short code with category filter options.
@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.

I'd like to be able to place the tickets box, or the 'add to cart' buttons for tickets - in pages or posts... a shortcode for that would be great.
Ohh! this is great! hopefully we listen and perform these tasks quickly
Just wanted to let you know that with Events Calendar PRO version 3.9 (released today!) you can use the shortcode [tribe_mini_calendar] to add our calendar widget outside of sidebars. We hope that will be helpful for you! And we are still working on further shortcode functionality.
The Modern Tribe Team
@saji We are not certain yet. We do our very best to minimize the impact to the API whenever possible. Once we get closer to the release any significant API changes made will be documented, and posted to our Release Notes blog prior to release. We will outline changes you should be made aware of.
@Rob We are keen to launch this as soon as possible too.
Rob Kinnear commented
This might solve a lot of other requests like custom sidebars etc as we'd be able to add to any page design of our own! Personally I'm hoping for Jan 2014!!
Totally agree with providing shortcodes so that our page will have breadcrumbs and sidebar layouts via out theme. 2015 hurry up!
Thats good news but with the change in underlying architecture, will that effect any development made using funcitons in the doc?
Wait. TWENTY FIFTEEN?!?!?

Wow. I'm pretty disappointed to purchase TEC and Woocomerce Tickets yesterday and discover critical & obvious features like this have been on the "maybe, someday" list for over a year. :(
Dan Hawk commented
After hundreds of requests and several years we still don't have barcodes on tickets - so damn frustrated
Just the basic shortcodes for generating event lists with choice of category would be enough for us! Thanks.
I just assumed that this was a feature. Here's another vote for yes
Can you guys give an estimate on this? the Events Rocket solution isnt very good...just give us a ball park - Winter 2014?
