Events Listing Widget

List upcoming events in a handy sidebar widget

Allows users to create events using a new custom post type in the back-end and have then rendered in the front-end using a widget. Offers options to select how many events to display and how many months ahead they should be listed.Download link coming soon

  1. Is there a shortcode so I can put the event widget into a gutenberg shortcode block on my page? I do not want to use the default footer or sidebar widget.


  2. Is there a way to change the frontend widget title? I looked in the php file and I was able to change it on the admin side, but not the frontend. Also, any advice for adding a reoccuring event or have the option to disable dates per event.


    1. Hi and sorry for the long delay before responding. I don’t check the comments on my blog very often. Most support requests are made on the plugin pages:

      Now, for your question, you can change the widget title by setting the field called Widget Title when you instantiate the widget. It is one of 4 configuration fields when you put the widget in your sidebar.

      Can you expand a bit on what you mean by recurring event? Something that happens weekly or monthly? You can just hide the event dates by adding a CSS rule to hide the date class:

      .events-listing-date {

      Then put the event date really far in the future. But at that point, if no events have any date, you’d almost be better using a text widget and linking to a few static pages for your events, no?
