Using Anything Boxes with Events Manager

Recommended Posts

Anything Boxes supports custom post types, which is nice, but I have trouble using it.

 

I'd like to use it to show events created with the Events Manager plugin, but it is difficult to figure out how to do it, or if it's even possible. I assume I should use custom fields, but I can't figure out what exactly to put there.

 

Basicly I'd like to do this:

- Order boxes by event date (rather than their posted date)

- Only show future events

- Display boxes only from some Event categories

If the plugin is registering a valid custom post type then it should show in your list of options for post types. As far as ordering that might be a different because I don't have custom_meta as an option yet.

Yes, it shows as an option, but it is difficult to customize it to be useful.

 

BTW: What does: Custom Field Key to Query  and Custom Field Value to Query do? Can I use that to show the Event-date?

it's not useful in that you can't order them how you want ? It is at least showing your events correct?

- Nor can I get the boxes to show the event date/time and location. 

 

Though, my question was wether this was possible "out of the box". If it's not, that's OK, I was just hoping that it was. Using boxes to show Events would be really nice.

Yeah I'm not really certain that I can build this into the product without blowing it up. It's such a specific use case situation that you may just want to manually do this using the default Boxes section ?

      Hi,
       
      I know Pagelines is not the developer of Anything Boxes but since you operate the store I wanted to ask the following question.
       
      Anything Boxes isn't officially updated for DMS yet but shows up in the store on one site I'm buidling: http://www.lovo.nu (http://cl.ly/image/2u0I1i3q1v1H). In another site (http://www.janpeeters.nl) that's on the same Pro version of DMS, Anything Boxes isn't visible. I'm hoping someone can shed a light on this erratic behaviour. I'd love to use Anything Boxes (that I bought) on both sites. 
      I read somewhere on the forum about Wordpress SEO being a problem for disappearing sections, but deactivated that didn't bring it back on my site.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Hi,
       
      Yesterday I recreated my website in DMS (from Framework 2) This worked quite smooth (half a days work with base child theme). There were some usability 'problems' that I will report later on.
       
      I used the section Anything-Boxes which I bought a while ago for Framework. It showed up in my DMS sections a few days ago so I could recreate my site. But last night it disappeared again. From my sections and from the store. So hopefully someone knows how to get it back. I'm using Flipper in the meantime, but the multirow anything-boxes works better for me.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Is it possible to state an offset for query_posts in "Anything Boxes"?
      I need to show the latest post on the top in a Feature and the rest of the posts in Anything Boxes. Could you please show me how I can do that, or if it is possible could you you add this in the setting?

      Hi Adam,   Here our conversation by e-mail about allowing tags for the excerpt. I'll post it again here as a feature request since I did not see it being implemented.   Kind regards,   Willem

      <img src="http://oudisnieuw.net.websrv.makeweb.nl/images/cafestoel-volendam-225x300.jpg" alt="Cafestoelen" style="max-width: 100%"> Hi Adam, in the above code you see that in your coding the image gets the ALT tag from the pagetitle. However, it is possible to give an alt text with every image in WP. 
      My preference would be that the alt tag is from the image, or that we can manage this inside your plugin.
       
      Can you change this (important for SEO).
       
      Kind regards,
       
      Willem
