Add New Event

You can add new events through Events → Add New Event in the WordPress Administration Panel.

The EventsAdd New Event screen.

Events contain most of the same options as standard posts. You can read about these in the Add New Post chapter. Additionally, they contain post options specific to events.

Event Options

Event Options are found below the editor on the Edit Event page. If the Event Options are not visible, make sure they are checked inside the Screen Options area at the top.

If you are adding a new event, make sure you have saved the post before editing event options. Otherwise, the event options will not be visible.

Event Google Maps location

Maps are displayed using Google Maps, so check your location is displayed correctly there before pasting it in here. These fields can accept any address, such as “51 Sherbrooke W., Montreal, QC“, as well as coordinates in the format latitude,longitude (such as “45.511892,-73.569732“) if you need something more precise. They cannot accept business names or landmark names, such as “Notman House“.

Setting a Google Maps location inside the theme.

If you’ve already entered latitude and longitude values separately before upgrading to versions of themes which accept addresses, these will continue to be used, but will no longer appear in the admin interface.

Remember to include your Google Maps API key on the Theme Options page for maps to be displayed correctly.

Pin map icon

The pin to be placed on the map in the location you set in Event Google Maps location. The recommended size for this is 64px x 64px, but any other size will also be handled correctly.

Share buttons

Set to On to display the sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+.
