Event Listing Layouts

Add VEM’s exclusive Drag-and-Drop layout metabox to your Listings admin panel and you can use it to customize the display for all events in that listing! So simple, so cool, and so very, very useful. In fact, there isn’t another event management plugin on the market able to provide this much control over which items to display and in what order.

Event Archives

A simple yet powerful feature that ushers in a wealth of dedicated functionality, event archiving makes it easy to create dedicated historical archives based on any criteria you want. It’s a great tool to combine with the Pro only Event Media metabox for displaying archive audio/video of events. When combined with Pro enhanced event listing search and filter functionality, you can create a searchable event archive in a matter of minutes and add new events over time.

  1. Default Archived List Layouts
  2. Default Archived Single Event Page Layouts
  3. Assign any event to “archived” status with a single check.
  4. When creating event lists, you can limit display to archived events only.

Run Dates

Great for gallery exhibits, tours, or events with a dozen or more unique occurrences, it provides a dedicated Drag-and-Drop module you can use in list and single event layouts that displays a custom multi-date message. It’s ideal when showing a “to – from” range is just as, if not more, important as displaying each occurrence but it’s smart enough to work for events with multiple occurrences on the same day or even single day with one occurrence.

Occurrence Status

Fire and forget bliss in the form of a Drag-and-Drop module you can use in list and single event layouts that displays a custom status message based on whether an event’s occurrences have all past, are current, or all in the future. Think “coming soon,” “happening now,” or “this event has past” style message blurbs. All you do is set the message and Venture does the rest automatically based on an event’s occurrence dates.

Search Filters

By default, you can enable keyword search functionality to event listings but you’re Pro license provides the ability to include additional search result filters in the form of event taxonomy and date range. You can let users define their own date range or create a fixed start and end dates, which is an ideal solution for creating annual archive searches.

Event Media

Provides a dedicated content metabox on single event admin panels you can use to feature event media, such as images, galleries, audio, and video. It receives its own Drag-and-Drop module so you can locate it wherever you like inside lists, single event pages, and event archive layouts.

Event Modules

Event modules are a dedicated event custom post type designed to display a small number of upcoming events in a three or four column layout. They contain critical what/when/where info along with ticket purchase and more details call to action buttons.

The three-column layout option provides the ability to use free form text in the first column, followed by three columns with the next the upcoming event occurrences. In the four column layout, there is no free form text area and all four columns are occupied by upcoming event info.

since they are placed via shortcode, don’t be afraid to include two or more modules on the same page. Using the category and venue filter options can provide a wealth of display options. In the following example, there are two mutually exclusive shortcodes, each set to display events that belong to a certain combo of category and/or venues.
