Date and Time

  • 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.

Hello, impressed with the plugin. But perhaps I found a little bug, or doing something wrong. In the detailpage of a repeating event, it shows the date of the very first event, and not the next repetition.

Hi, is it possible to completely hide the time.  I have events where they are monthly but they are run on a hashtag rather than a time.  Is there a plugin or workaround to have the ability to not show a time for a particular event or category of events.  thank you

Hi, I'm trying to create a repeating event starting on the 26th, but everytime that I create the event, it says on the page that "the event is finished" and that it was scheduled for the day it was published on?  Do I just have to publish the events the day of the event?  Or is there another way to fix this issue?

Hello, How can you create different time slots for the same day? (ie: multiple events on one day?)

I use the calendar for evening / night events. However, in such cases when an event starts on friday evening at 10pm and ends at 2am, it displays as two days.. I know that for example 'the events calendar' offers an 'end of day cutoff' which allows you to set to extend the end time of the day to the next day. Are you guys planning for such a feature? The current setup is not really night event friendly.

Hello! Please tell me whether it is possible to turn off the display of the date in the list of events. So that the date is not displayed at all or that you can enter any text. https://100dorogog.su/shkolnye-tury/ - on a yellow background so that you can write something: Time as agreed. thank

Hi, First of all, I find MEC a very flexible calendar plugin so thank you for that. However, I would like to wonder about one specific usage. Imagine that we have not a standard repeating event on different dates so we need to use Custom Days option. In those options, we can only define the starting and ending dates. But in this case its also different start-end times. Let's sat on one competition day we start at 5 p.m. on another at 5:30 p.m. and on the following one at 6:00 p.m. Of course, I can reflect it in the Hourly Schedule widget but what about next occurrence of the event if there is a few days break in between and also when that occurrence will be hidden? Is there a way to manage it in the current version of MEC? If not could you consider adding that in future releases?

Hi, Does M. E. Calendar support events with multiple times in the same day? For example, I need to create an event for a theatrical performance that takes place on multiple days all of which will have both matinee and evening performances. How would you suggest setting that up?
