Date and Time

Date and time setting have an extensive section in the Modern event calendar. You can set up a variety of schedules for your events and programs in this part of MEC plugin. After adding an event you can follow these instructions for your plan.

  • Set a start date and an end date time for an event: You can set start and end date time in there.
  • All day event: If you check this, it means that your event starts at 0:00 A.M. and ends at 11:59 P.M.
  • Hide event time: This feature hides the event time on the single event page.
  • Time comment: It is used for specifying a time zone. It is shown next to the event time on the single event page. It’s necessary to have your time set to another time zone (another from UTC) or whatever time zone you like.
  • Event Repeating: If your event needs to repeat based on a certain interval, simply assign an event to repeat on the calendar.
    1. Daily: Repeat the current event daily, also there is an input to identify daily interruptions (if you want to show the event on a particular repeat interval during a day you should fill text with 1).
    2. Every Weekday: This feature makes the event repeat on working days of the week.
    3. Every Weekend: This feature sets the event to repeat on weekends.
    4. Certain Weekdays: You select specific days of the week for the events to repeat.
    5. Weekly: This feature makes the event to repeat every week.
    6. Monthly: This feature makes the event to repeat every Month (if you want to show event on a particular repeat interval during a month, you should fill the text with 1).
    7. Yearly: This feature makes the event to repeat every year.
    8. Custom Day Repeating: The only thing you need to keep in mind is:
      • One-day tickets can repeat on the following basis:
      every day, every week, every weekend, every month or every year.
      • 2-7-day tickets can repeat on the following basis:
      Every week, month, year.
      • 7-day tickets or the tickets which are less than 30 days can repeat:
      Every month or every year.
      • More-than-a-month tickets:
      Can repeat every year (28 days is the minimum days in a month which belongs to February).
    9. Advance Repeating: Selecting a day during a week for an event and also it’s monthly repeat along with selecting several different days. For example:
      Repeating an event every month for the second Monday of each month or a monthly repeat for the event for the last Sunday and Saturday of each month.
  • End Repeating: Some of the repeats function like loops and they continue forever (unlimited event). In order for this to stop, we have added a new option with which you can end the event after “n” repeats or you can set an End Date for it.
    For example, there is an event with an “every other day” repeat and it can be seen in the shortcode forever, however, supose that you need to end the event after 200 repeats. To do this, you can simply set the End Repeating on 200, therefore the event will end after 200 repeats.
  • Show Only One Occurrence Of  This Event: If your set repeat for this event, but you want to show just one occurrence of the event, please enable it.

Hi, I am just starting to use this plugin & so far love the look & feel of it for my site. However, I am running into an issue with the end date/time. I have events that will start, say, on Thursday at 8PM but there will be no end time. When I create the event, I am not filling in the end time but it keeps the prepopulated time in there & that shows on my event. Is there a way to remove the end time or not have it display? I don't really want to mark it as an All Day event because it won't start until 8PM on that day.  Hopefully that makes sense & thanks for any assistance in advance.

Hi, I really love the design of this calendar but I am struggling to get the it to work on the website I am building. I have added an event, however it is not showing up oin calendar view and defaulting to todays date saying event passed even though the date is correct.

I am loving this plugin, except for one thing: The event doesn't seem to display the correct time based on the user's timezone, despite checking the "local time" module. It does display the correct time on the single event page, however. Is this a bug? My timezone is set to Denver time. Here's the page in question: https://www.staging.btr.org/support-group/

When I select "Hide Event Time" on the Event Details page, the clock icon still appears on the Upcoming events (List) page. Shouldn't the clock icon be hidden as well if I select "Hide Event Time" on the event?

Hi. First of: amazing plugin!However i was wondering if it is possible to "split" an event to multiple day-periods? I.e. same event on two weekends or so. Defining a big period and cancel unnecessary days via exceptional days is a bit unhandy, because i have to define every single day and cannot define multiple days.

Hello, I created an event starting one day and finishing the day after, and only the starting date is appearing on the single event page and on general view. I find it a bit confusing. I would like to have both starting and finishing date. How can I manage that ? Thanks
