Making Advance Shortcodes

After adding your event, Modern Event Calendar enables you to make a calendar from all of the events with adorable skins, nice and tidy styles. Also, it has a powerful filtering tool to create a new calendar. Click on Custom Shortcode > Add Shortcode. This is the overview of adding a calendar with custom shortcodes.

1- Skins:

2- In Modern Event Calendar you can assign styles to skins. This means that every skin can appear with a certain familiar style:

  • Minimal
  • Modern
  • Standard

3- Calendar date start options:

  • Today
  • Tomorrow
  • Start of current month
  • Start of next month
  • On certain date

4- You can set an order for displaying dates in a shortcode. For more information please refer to All Date Format.

5- Limit for posts displayed: if the limit value equals 5, a calendar will include 5 events according to the categories you have set up and the filters you have chosen.

6- Include Events Time: show time of the events on shortcode

7- Load More Button: If you want to show more than the limits you have set, enable this option. It will load more events.

8- Separates (divides) the events based on month.

9- Add map in the top of the shortcode

10- Showing single events in another link by selecting a Separate Window, or on the same link as a pop-up by selecting Modal 1.

11-After setting up your calendar, Modern Event Calendar will generate the shortcode for using calendar anywhere you like! (Visual Composer Integrated)

Hey! We used the Shortcode feature to build a specific container in list view filtering events to be shown through a "dummy" category. We assigned this cat to all the events that we wanted to be shown considering that every event belongs to two or more cats including the dummy one. The next thing we would like to do is to activate an event filter bar by categories (something like the Wordpress' Visual Composer in Ajax jQuery). We tried to use the builtin dropdown filter element just to see if it works but it shows only the dummy category not all of them. Is there a way to activate an AJAX content filter for MEC custom posts maybe also in the PRO version? Thank you

Is there a way to make the carousel view advance on click instead of auto-advance?

How can I use some event settings in the description of the event itself. For example, in the description of the event, I need to once again remind the date the event began. What shortcode should be inserted in the event description? Is there something like [date-event]

Hi, I have a problem with shortcodes. I would like to create a shortcode for particular locations for listing the events for every locations I have on my site. But at the shortcode creator of the plugin only shows me 12 locations of the 47 I created. So I'm not able to choose the preferred location for the shortcode to make a list for that particular location. How can I create a shortcode for the other Locations?
