  1. Is it possible to tease whatever the next upcoming event is on a page elsewhere on my site? That is, to define a place on a page (in a WordPress template, in this case) that always displays what the next scheduled event is?

    Apologies if this is a noob question; I’m new to the Calendar system!

    Also, I’m interested in learning how to make the front-end filtering system more in-depth, like the back-end filtering system is.

    Thanks!

  2. You can easily achieve the ‘teaser’ by using the List mode, along with the options
    $noOld=1;
    $listMonths=12;
    $listEvents=1;

    What this does is it will look for the first event (or today’s) in the next 12 months.

    As for the filtering system on the front-end, that’s not really possible as you can’t search or create a custom filter on the fly, but with the Full-Filter plugin (that I offer) you will get a drop-down for each category as you’ve defined. That is different from the original Filter plugin which only gives you a drop-down for the main category.

  3. i see from http://www.easyphpcalendar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7408
    that you’ve done some work integrating with drupal as well as wp. would love to hear more about that, as i am currently considering a variety of tool options for a site with very specific calendaring needs.

  4. @lydia – I actually have not tried Drupal at all, so I really cannot help you with that. WP however has been explored and is successful.
