Events

Ideally the calendar would be a WordPress “page” like this one. Then anyone with WordPress access could use the built-in editor to update the surrounding content and provide context. We can use custom shortcodes to control what is shown.

Other chapters: LA, Seattle, Silicon Valley

Desired default view

This view only shows events that are tagged as “public.” It should be the default view at /events, but that view is controlled by The Events Calendar’s plugin settings and so I don’t know how to modify it without editing template files.

This view shows all events, regardless of tag (see recurring test event). It could be the member calendar, listed on another page.

Other issues

  • The event details view isn’t ideal (event example vs. page example)
    • “Pages” don’t have the image header, join banner, or the next/previous stuff at the bottom
      • I think the skin provides different template types (“One Off”) and The Events Calendar is defaulting to whatever posts default to
    • Links aren’t underlined
  • I’m not sure how customizable the iCal link is — I think it lists all events
