Events Feed Module Content Settings in the Divi Events Calendar Plugin by Pee Aye Creative

Events Feed Module Content Settings

Welcome to the Content Settings documentation for the Events Feed Module. In this guide, you will learn everything you need to know about content related settings in the Content Tab of the Events Feed module and how they work. You can see all the Content Settings by going to the Events Feed Module Settings > Content Tab. We made it a goal to provide every setting we could think of for you to easily customize the feed of events.

Be sure to reference the Events Feed Module Settings List which includes a summary of every setting that is available and what it does. You should also check out the Events Feed Module Demos to see how the module works and get some inspiration.

Dynamic Events

This is the first option that you will see in the content settings under the Content Tab in the Events Feed Settings. This setting enables a special feature that allows you to place the Events Feed module into a Divi Theme Builder template and it will automatically show events based on dynamic content. So you don’t have to manually create different pages and then place different Event Feed Modules for the results. Instead, you can simply enable this setting. This great for event category pages and is also great on single event pages to show additional events. This setting is off by default.

Events Status

This option is used to set whether the Events Feed module displays events based on whether their dates have passed or will be coming in the future. This is set to Future by default.

If you are wondering why you can’t display both in the same module, you can check this FAQ (spoiler alert: it wouldn’t make logical sense).

Past

If you select the Past option under the Event Status then it will only display events whose dates have passed.

Future

If you select the Future option under the Event Status then it will only display events whose dates will be coming in the future.

Events Order

This setting determines whether the events will be shown chronological order of  ascending or descending. This is sometimes helpful to change when showing past events. This is set to Ascending by default.

Ascending

If you select the Ascending option under the Events Order  then it will display the events in such a way that the oldest event will be at the top and the oldest at the bottom.

Descending

If you select the Descending option under the Events Order then it will display the events in such a way that the newest event will be at the top and the oldest at the bottom.

Events Count

This option allows you to choose how many events show at once time in the Events Feed module. This is set to 6 by default but can be changed to any number you prefer.  Keep in mind that you can also enable one of the pagination options for the website visitor to click to see more events. 

Included Categories

Under the Included Categories setting you will see all the names of the event categories that you have added to your site. By default, none of the categories are selected which actually means that all of the events will be shown without regard to category. When you select one or more event categories, then only those events in one of the selected categories with the tick mark will be shown in the feed.

Only Show Featured Events

This option is created to show events that are marked as featured, which you can do when editing single events pages. If you enable this setting then you will only see all the featured events in the feed. This is turned off by default.

Show Recurring Events

This option is only relevant if you are using The Events Calendar Pro. It allows you show all of the Recurring Events in the feed. This is turned on by default. If you disable this setting then it will only show the other regular events. 

Date Format

This option allows you to specify the date format that you want to apply for the dates showing in the Event Feed. By default, the date format is the same as in your WordPress Settings or The Events Calendar settings. However, if you want to have even more control over this, we have provide you with the option to change the date format for the Events Feed module by specifying a valid PHP date format in this field. For example, if you specify y-m-d then it will showcase the date something like this 2021-06-20 and so on.

Time Format

This option allows you to specify the time format that you want to apply for the dates showing in the Event Feed. By default, the time format is the same as in your WordPress Settings or The Events Calendar settings. However, if you want to have even more control over this, we have provide you with the option to change the time format for the Events Feed module by specifying a valid PHP time format in this field. For example, if you specify h:i:s then it will showcase the time something like this 08-30-12 and so on.

Excerpt Length

This option allows you to trim the number of characters displaying in from the excerpt. By default his is set to 270 characters, which is the same as WordPress and Divi. But if you want, you can change this by writing any number in the field to control the length of the excerpt.

Events Offset Number

This option allows you to skip an event or events from displaying in the feed. This works exactly like the Blog module Offset number. If you enter a 1, it will skip the first event, a 3 would skip the first 3, etc.  This is useful if you want to use more than one Events Feed module set to  different layouts. For example, you could have one event featured in a module with a List layout, then below that have another module set to Grid layout. In the second module you would put a 1 as the Events Offset Number to skip the first one.
