All-in-One Event Calendar generator

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

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

Tutorial

Step 1

Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

Step 2

Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

Step 3

Choose All-in-One Event Calendar (Time.ly) - Events.

Step 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.

Step 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.

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.
  • Tag - You can select tags to filter your events from the selected categories.
  • Only recurring events - Show only recurring events. In this case the Started and Ended settings will be ignored, since there are multiple starting and ending dates. The "Order by" option will use the very first date of this event.
  • Exclude recurring events - Show only events, which are not recurring. 
  • 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.
The recurring options had to be given, because their multiple starting and ending dates are handled differently in All-in-One Event Calendar's code, so the Started and Ended date checkings and the date ordering options can only look at the first start and ending dates of these events. 

But with these two options you could handle them in two separate dynamic slides, just the recurring events slide can't be handled by dates, as their multiple dates wouldn't allow to give an order or to decide wether or not they have started or ended.
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.
  • Create custom date variables - You can write any date format in separate lines, and new variables will be created for them.
  • Translate your custom date variables - You can translate your date variables, if your server didn't set it up php functions to display them on your language. Write the original text, like 'Monday' then two | signs, and the text you want it to be translated to, for example 'Montag'. Together: Monday||Montag
  • Function - This function will be used to format these custom date variables. Usually the date_i18n works, but if your date will be off a little bit, then try out the other one.
