Events Calendar for GeoDirectory


The Events Calendar add-on for GeoDirectory is a compelling way to feature events on your directory, using Custom Post Types (CPT). This events calendar plugin creates the CPT Events, by adding time and date to a standard listing. Users can now choose to list a place or an event.

Recurring Events Included

Do you host the same event every day, or every second week, or every 3 months, or once every 4 years? The Events Calendar for GeoDirectory has your back!

You can set events as recurring type daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and even pick custom dates.
The recurring interval can be from 1 to 30.

So if you select type weekly and interval 2, the events will happen every 2 weeks.

Events Custom Fields

Add unlimited custom fields to your events out of the box with our add event form builder.

Events Calendar Widgets, Shortcodes or Blocks

It’s easy to sort events by selecting “upcoming,” “today,” “past” or “all” and display custom events lists, grids and a simple events calendar anywhere using Widgets, Shortcodes or Blocks. By default, events are ordered with the upcoming event first.

Events Locator

The Events Calendar for GeoDirectory is a full-featured Events Locator too. Events are easily displayed on a map, allowing user to locate your events with ease. Easily show distance from them and driving directions.

Along with GeoDirectory, this plugin is awesome. A couple of days ago I activated GD with a view to replacing the Directory I was using. If all went well after a few weeks trial I was going to switch my Events directory too. I was so impressed with GD I just decided to switch it now. So easy to use, intuitive and it looks exactly as I want straight out of the box. The front end is so good, I know it’ll make it easier for my users to add events and improve UX. I highly recommend this plugin (and GeoDirectory) if you want an events plugin. The only way this plugin could be better is if it added listings for you!

Pretty much everything I could ask for in an Events system, combined with great pro-active support. What’s not to like 🙂
