Divi Events Calendar Plugin Feature Update 2.5

Divi Events Calendar Plugin Feature Update 2.5

I'm pleased to announce our next update to version 2.5 of our Divi Events Calendar plugin with lots of new features and improvements!

New Events Feed Module Settings

Image Aspect Ratio

Now you can select from a list of predefined image aspect ratio options in for the event featured image.

Make Entire Event Clickable

By default, elements like the image, title, and more info button are clickable links, but some users want to be able to click anywhere on an individual event, so we added this new setting to make that possible. So when this is enabled, you can click anywhere on the event.

Show Both Past & Future Events

Until now, you could only select either past or future events within the same module, but now we have added a 3rd option to show both past and future events together.

Always Show Callout Box In Grid View

In the List layout, it shows the Callout Box even if you disable the featured image or if the image is not available. But in the Grid layout, the Callout Box was not showing if there was no image. Now we updated this to also show the Callout Box in Grid layout even if there is no image.

New Events Calendar Module Settings

Show Thumbnails In Calendar Days

Now you can choose to show the featured event images as thumbnails within the calendar days! Just enable the new setting and adjust the many new design settings.

Calendar Days Time Format Setting

We added another time format setting! This new one affects the time shown in the calendar days.

Hide Time For All Day Events

If the event is all day, then the time is not needed, so this new setting allows you to hide the time for all day events in the calendar.

Hide Time For Multi-Day Events

As you can see, it is not very useful to show the time for multi-day events, so in this example the time would not show.

Margin And Padding Settings

We noticed a few missing spacing settings, so in this update we have added padding settings for the days of the week and calendar days, and margin and padding settings for the navigation and views buttons!

Tooltip Image Alignment

We already had height and width settings for the tooltip image, so now we added alignment setting to position the image left, center, or right.

New Events Filter Module Settings

Keyword Search Criteria

We added a new dropdown setting to choose whether the keyword search should filter by title only or by title and content.

New Events carousel Module Settings

No Results Message

Our Events Feed module already had this, but we missed it in the Events Carousel module, so now it is added!

Fixes, Changes, Improvements

Locally Hosted Files For GDPR

We use a JavaScript CDN to ensure the files needed for the Events Feed, Events Calendar, and Events Carousel are loading without affecting your site performance. However, some customers have expressed concern that the GDPR is very strict and even though the CDN we use appears to be fully compliant, customers still feel more comfortable hosting the files locally. So we have added a new setting to each of the three modules in the Admin Label toggle which will activate the files in the plugin instead of in the CDN.
