=== Minimalistic Event Manager === Contributors: de-ce, tar.gz Donate link: https://flattr.com/thing/972318/ Tags: dates, events, time Requires at least: 3.0 Tested up to: 4.4 Stable tag: 1.0.9 License: GPLv2 or later License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html A simple and flexible solution for managing event dates. == Description == This plugin (MEM or Minimalistic Event Manager) is intended for theme authors and developers who want a simple, robust and flexible solution for managing event dates. The MEM plugin offers a clean interface that allows to add _event dates_ (start dates, end dates, repeating dates) to _posts_ (and to any custom post type). = The main features = - Event dates can be attached to any post type: Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types... (optionally, they can be restricted to specific content types). - Event dates can be of three types: start dates, end dates, repeating dates. - There is no mandatory date format: Time, Day, and Month are optional. An event date could be "January 2046", or just "2046". = What the plugin doesn’t do = The MEM plugin works as a simple interface for entering those dates into custom fields, but it won’t do much on the public side of your theme (there's a simple widget for displaying a list of events). The plugin was created primarily to enable theme developers to create their own display of events on the front-end. If you aren’t sure how to achieve this, [our wiki](https://github.com/ms-studio/minimalistic-event-manager/wiki) will provide a collection of examples to get you started. = Technical implementation = Technically, the MEM plugin stores the dates as ordinary Custom Fields, in a _machine-readable_ format (such as "2016-11-23 13:37"). This gives you absolute freedom for displaying your events in your theme: - You can query for specific date ranges by using the meta_key / meta_compare parameters. - You can use the php `date` function to display the date in any possible manner (or `date_i18n` for proper localization). = Plugin options = The plugin has two settings that can be modified with a few lines in your `functions.php` file: - You can limit it to specific post types. - You can use an "alpha" mode, which gives you a blank input field for each date. This can be useful if you need to enter dates that don’t fit the predefined format. See the online documentation for the full instructions. = Links = [**Documentation**](https://github.com/ms-studio/minimalistic-event-manager/wiki) = Credits = - **Concept and maintenance** [ms-studio.net](http://ms-studio.net) - **Initial development**: [Dream Production](http://dreamproduction.net/) == Installation == 1. Upload the plugin to your plugins directory 2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress For more detailed instructions, see [Installing Plugins](http://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins#Installing_Plugins). After activating the plugin, refer to the [wiki](https://github.com/ms-studio/minimalistic-event-manager/wiki) for further instructions. == Frequently Asked Questions == = There are hundreds of plugins doing exactly this — why a new one? = All the date management plugins we tested are more complicated than needed. We tried many of them. We believe that our concept is more simple, more robust and more flexible. :) = Is the plugin localized? = Yes it is! For now, it supports English, French and German. Since the interface uses about 4 words, it's not much work to translate it for other languages. = Can I find you on GitHub? = Of course, here: [https://github.com/ms-studio/minimalistic-event-manager/](https://github.com/ms-studio/minimalistic-event-manager/) == Screenshots == 1. The initial state, no dates are set yet. 2. The start date is being entered. 3. An event with start date, repeating twice. == Changelog == = 1.0.9 = * widget improvement: added filter (mem_event_date_display) that allows to customize the widget date format. = 1.0.8 = * widget bugfix: when number of upcoming events is greater than display limit, events in the near future should be displayed first. * removed useless html tag in widget output, thanks to @macemmek * fixed warning message, thanks to @danhollywells = 1.0.7 = * do not load the widget code if PHP is lower than 5.3, to avoid white screen of death. = 1.0.6 = * version bump (fixing an issue in 1.0.5 where the funtions directory wasn't included). = 1.0.5 = * adding a widget to display a list of events on the frontend. * adding a function that facilitates custom display of event information. = 1.0.4 = * adapting to post-MP6 dashboard design * removing 32-characters limitation when using "alpha" mode * adding some date format translation strings, useful when using [the mem-extras](https://github.com/ms-studio/mem-extras) = 1.0.3 = * uses the icon font of MP6 if available = 1.0.2 = * improves css to adhere to MP6 * fixes a php error visible in debug mode * fixes a js error, props to @Dan2k3k4 = 1.0.1 = * fixes activation error on some older php versions = 1.0 = * initial public release
