Event Espresso Shortcodes 

Posted by on Jul 2, 2012 in Resources, WordPress | 2 comments

Event Espresso is a very robust event registration system for WordPress that is available as both a free and premium plugin.  There are also a number of add-on companion plugins available to enhance Event Espresso’s functionality.

Below is a comprehensive list of Event Espresso shortcodes available for displaying Event Espresso information within your website pages and posts:


Single Events

Displays a single event on a page or post

[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id="your_event_identifier"]

Add Events to Cart

Displays an “Add Event to Cart” link that can be added to the event details, page, or post. Requires the Multiple Event Registration addon.

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK]

Additonal Examples:

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart="Redirecting to cart..."]
(Used to redirect to the shopping cart page. Must be added to an event description.)

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id="add_event_id_here" direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart="Redirecting to cart..."]
(Same as above, but uses the event_id paramter and can be added to a page or post.)

Event List

Returns a list of events

  • [EVENT_LIST]
  • [EVENT_LIST limit=1]
  • [EVENT_LIST show_expired=true]
  • [EVENT_LIST show_deleted=true]
  • [EVENT_LIST show_secondary=true]
  • [EVENT_LIST show_recurrence=true]
  • [EVENT_LIST category_identifier=your_category_identifier]
  • [EVENT_LIST order_by=date(start_date),id]
Order by parameters:

(comma separated)

id
date(start_date)
date(end_date)
event_name
date(registration_start)
date(registration_end)
city
state

Attention:
The [EVENT_LIST] shortcode should not be used as a replacement for the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode. Replacing the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode will break your registration pages.
