I’m planning to create an event-calendar for a festival. The problem is, that this festival takes place end of 31th of may to 7th of june so that you have to switch between month and a weekly view is not possible because it has 8 days in a row.
Is it possible to show it like a weekly view or daily view (addons) but only these 8 days and to show always before and after the festival.

Have a look at this addon
with the demo here http://demo.myeventon.com/speaker-schedule-event/
this would allow you to have 1 event (like a single events page) and then have the schedule of what is happening each day in the …well schedule
the speakers for example can be changed to Entertainment or sponsors or whatever
this way you have a clean looking page
If you have access to a tab layout (some themes include this as standard but there are plenty of free plugins that do it)
you could have on a page 8 tabs and each tab would have a single event in it so the customer could easily flick through each day by clicking the tabs. you would create an event for each day- give it the same title possibly with day 1 , day 2 at the end of the title
Some tab plugins allow you to open a particular tab on page load (so at the end of each day of the festival you could change the shortcode of the tabed layout to open the next day)
I hope that made sense
weekly view is restricted to 7 days and wouldn’t work because your event is 8 days and it is restricted to individual months
daily view is nearly there but is restricted to individual months
thanks for this fast reply. There are more than one event on a day. The first solution wouldn’t work. I could do it with tabs… Do I need a specific addon to show an event per id or I could do it probably with a category for the specific day?
I think ist would be a good idea to combine Event Lists: Ext with Daily View. That is what I need :-).
Kind Regards, Alex
with tabs- just give each calendar shortcode a unique id (which could be anything- no spaces you could say day1 or day2 for example)
In the day of a tab you could put several single day shortcodes 1 on top of the other and set it so that the event card is closed (otherwise the page would be very long with 5 open event cards)
eventon core comes with single events
in the eventon generator- choose single events then use the drop down menu to pick the event you want to display- then choose it to be closed and a few other options- no additional addons would be needed
