This is for admin purposes only and to help you identify which calendar is which when going back to edit. We suggest giving it a title that is very descriptive such as “Footer 1 Widget Calendar” or “Main Event Calendar.”
2 & 3) Calendar and Key Shortcodes
These are the shortcodes associated with the unique calendar and category key. You’ll copy and paste these into a page or text widget and the system will do the rest. By making the calendar and key shortcodes mutually exclusive, you can easily place the key above or below the calendar or even insert it into a shortcode column. Since the respective shortcode id is unique, if you make any changes to that calendar’s settings, the system will push those through in real time without you ever needing to modify the shortcodes!
4 – 6) Categories, Seasons, and Venues
Select which categories, seasons, and venues should be included in the calendar and key. Tip: if you do not select any within each respective meta box, the system will assign all of them (a handy time saving shortcut).

2) Listing Shortcode
This is the shortcode associated with the unique listing. You’ll copy and paste this into a page or text widget and the system will do the rest and since the respective shortcode id is unique, if you make any changes to that calendar’s settings, the system will push those through in real time without you ever needing to modify the shortcodes!
3 – 7) Display Settings
These settings were previously managed via the “Settings>Events” admin panel and applied to all event listings universally, but you can now customize the settings on a per listing basis! All of the options are the same as before except for “Event to Show” which provides the ability to distinguish between current and archived event lists.
8 & 9) “More Details” Filter
You can now show or hide the “More details” link that appears on event listings. This is an enormously useful option for users that do not want site visitors clicking through to a detailed single event page so whether you simply don’t have many details to provide or just want a simple, list only overview of events, this simply check box ushers in an entirely new way to use the event manager! And for those opting to use the “More Details” link you may now customize the link text.
10 – 12) Categories, Seasons, and Venues
Select which categories, seasons, and venues should be included in the calendar and key.
Venture Event Listing
This widget has been expanded to offer several new options:
- Select Upcoming Events or (new) Recently Added Events!
- Link Text: Add an optional link set to display at the end of the widget’s event list such as a link to a complete event list page.
- Link URL: Use any URL here you wish; meaning, it doesn’t need to point to an internal page.
Venture What/When/Where Widget
Designed as a set-up and forget tool to be used exclusively on single event pages, the widget prominently displays the most in-demand info ticket buyers look for in the form of the event name, dates/times, ticket price, ticket purchase link, Venue name, and a Google Map link. Better still, it automatically lists related info for each event occurrence. All you have to do is enable the widget and Venture does the rest. It’s also a terrific solution for keeping page footprints as small as possible.
In addition to setting up the single event page layouts, the Event Settings admin panel provides the very same drag-and-drop modules for event listings. From here, you can arrange how content fields appear anywhere you insert an event listing shortcode so each screen benefits from the same clean and consistent formatting as single page layouts. You also have control over universal settings such as currency symbols, single event page layouts, custom buy ticket icons, and default time display and ordering.
Our unique “Run Dates” module will automatically pull the first and last dates from the event’s occurrences and use that to display. It’s an ideal option for groups that have events with multiple occurrences spread out over multiple days. But it will still work for events with multiple occurrences on the same day or even single day with one occurrence (more on that below).
