EventON version 2.2 is here

Published on: November 21,2013

Woo hoo after several nights of lines and lines of endless coding we are happy to present the eventON 2.2 update. This update is a major one as we have done several improvements and additions. Definitely moving eventON forward with the look, functionality and usability.


What all is new with 2.2?

New Shortcode Generator pop-in Box

When we first added the popup shortcode buttons we wanted to make adding shortcode based calendar easiler. But it was little confusing for some people are not many knew what type of variable values would go in the shortcode off the bat. This time we took the initiative in creating something that you have never seen on wordpress plugins, a shortcode generator that is interactive, provide a guided text to each shortcode variable field along with sample values.

Just like before you can now add as many shortcode based calendars you want with a better knowledge of what you want to add.


Collapse event edit meta boxes

You can now very easily collapse data meta boxes on event edit page – it saves space and easy on the eye. Once you close the boxes it will be closed next time you load the page.



Re-arrange EventCard fields

You can now rearrange eventCard data fields to give your calendar a custom look with higher priority data rows visible above others.



Minor UI update to eventCard

EventON eventCard and its simplistic minimal design is one of our strong points. We took another step forward on this by making some fine changes to eventCard along with few new data rows. We decided to put event time and location in the same line to provide vital information for an event in one spot for the visitor – this also save space for more information down the eventCard. We hope you will like this along with the ability to rearrange eventCard data rows.


Featured Image for event on the eventTop

You can now add event’s feature image to be shown on eventTop line along with other data. This will make eventON calendar more colorful and attractive to visitors at first glance.



ICS download and get directions

You can now add ICS file download (for importing event to google cal or iCal) button to eventCard. Also added new is get directions from event location field which will allow user to enter where to get directions and will open up google maps in a new window with directions pulled up.


Dual Languages

EventON us a globally used wordpress plugin and we respect the needs of our international users who use different languages other than english. We have introduced a new dual language set up build within eventON so you can now show eventON calendar in which ever language you want.


New Priority Support

We have created a new paid priority support on top of our google eventON free group to allow eventON users to receive support faster for their installation of eventON.


Other killer additions

New License activation server: we made our new license activation server go live earlier this week. Now you will be able to activate eventON license without relying heavily on envato API (like before)

Reverse Order capability has been added and now you can easily reverse the order in which events are shown.

Feature Events: you can now feature events and have those featured events move above other events.

Event Feature Image expanding feature has been fixed to expand the featured image to its full proportional height.
