Events Manager generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

With this dynamic slide generator you can show the contents of your events.

Tutorial

  1. Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

  2. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

  3. Choose Events Manager - Events.

  4. Set up your generator, choose the settings you think you want, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.
  5. Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.

  6. If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.

Filter

  • Category - You can select the categories from where you want the events.
  • Tags - You can select tags to filter your events from the selected categories.
  • Location - You can select locations to filter your events further.
  • Started - You can choose to only show those events, which haven't started yet, or already starter, or all.
  • Ended - You can choose to only show those events, which haven't ended yet, or already ended, or all.
If you have a problem with the  Started and  Ended filters, that you see events you think shouldn't be there, check out  this documentation.
  • Location town - You can give one town name, and only events from there will be in the slider.
  • Location state - You can give one state name, and only events from there will be in the slider.
  • Get all multisite events - If you have multisite, then you can ask down events from all sites. This will ask down the events site after site, so it has a limitation, that the ordering only works on site bases! So it will ask down the events from your first site with the selected order, then asks down the events from the second site with the selected order, and so on.
  • Order result - If the "Get all multisite events" option is used, you can make the result use the selected order. So with this option, you still have the limitation described before, but after you have your for example 7 events from the first site, 3 events from the second, you can order these 10 events.
  • Slide count per site - If the "Get all multisite events" is turned on, and this option is turned on as well, then the Generator settings -> Slides (what you see at step 4 in the tutorial) will ask down that many slides per site. For example if you have 3 sites, and choose to ask down 4 events, you will get 12 events. If you turn this option off, you will only have 4 slides all together. Turning this off would make sense, if you would use the "Order result" option as well, or else you might only would get events from the first site.
  • All day events custom text options - All day events don't have starting and ending times, also ending dates. If you don't want just empy values where these variables are used at these kind of events, you could turn these options on to give your own text instead.
