Along with creating a regular ol’ event, Events theme allows you to create recurring onesas well. Set a global start/end date and then define the occurrence.
In case your directory needs to be user-driven, Events theme has got you covered. Not only can you enable user submissions, you can also monetize them by creating price packages.
Customizing the homepage is easy as drag n’ drop, literally. Widgets allow you to populate the homepage with various content while still preserving that clean and beautiful look.
To make events easier to find you can use maps. Maps are shown on category and detail pages by default. You can also create your own by using the included map page template.
Each field you see inside the event submission form can be modified from the theme’s extensive back-end section. Creating new ones is possible as well.
Using third-party plugins such as OA Social Login you’ll be able to provide an alternative login method to your visitors. Pulling events from Facebook is also possible.
Events comes with a language file (.po) you can use to translate the theme. In case you haven’t done this before we’ve prepared a tutorial that will help you get started.
Both you and your visitors will have an option to confirm attendance of a particular event. Each event selected as attending will be visible inside the user front-end dashboard.
No worries, we didn’t forget about the blog. Starting a blog with this advanced theme is as easy as creating a new category and adding some posts to it, no further tweaking necessary.
The included coupon module will allow you to offer discounts for created price packages. This will for sure come in handy early in the sites’s life-cycle.
Price package power
The primary way to make money with this theme is to charge for content submission. In other words, to showcase their event on your site companies will have to pay a price that you set. Of course, this is optional, submissions can be setup so they are free for everybody.
Allowing you to earn even more money are featured events. If a user pays for featuring an event, that event will be specially highlighted and placed at the top of the homepage and category pages.
We are very happy with this template. As you can see it is a one stop site with every event and everything associated with events. It is easy to design and maintain and the design out of the box worked well with very little tweeking.
