With the new site design we are also updating some plug-ins that we are using. One being the event calendar. We found one of the best looking plugins and decided to start with that. Unfortuntely when changing plugins you loose all the data you have on teh previous. So all past events were no longer visible. However this plugin we moved to was a very feature-less without the purchase of multiple add-ons to bring it up to the level we wanted. So that brings us to today and a new plugin that we just dropped in. This one although not as pretty has a simliar look for our front page but also offers a full gamut of features that we believe should be in a event calendar plugin. Of course we had to re-enter all our upcomifng events. We will not be re-entering our past events.
There are a few thing swe have setup that I would like to point out:
- Here you will find a full calender view by month.
- You can create your own events here.
There is also a link to create events on your “Profile Dashboard“. I have other ideas in place for the profile page but that will be another blog post.
