Step 1

Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

Step 2

Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

Step 3

Choose  Event Booking.

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.

  • Menu item (item ID) for url - Event Booking events can show up on any pages, because that is how Joomla works, so your events' links can be as many links, as many menu items you have in your website. To make Joomla choose one of your menu items, you can give an Item ID, which will connect your event url to that page. This can be useful, when you want one of your menu items to be active, when you go to the link the url variable will lead. Also your different pages have different modules on them, so with the Item ID you will specify which modules will show up on this event page too. You can read more about this in here.
    This item ID only works with Event Booking menuitems.
