Divi Events Calendar combines the power of The Events Calendar plugin and the Divi Builder, allowing you to display and style events on your website with the full functionality and customizability that comes with Divi’s visual builder. This product adds new modules to the Divi Builder. You can add event pages, calendars, carousels, feeds, filters, and tickets to your layouts and completely customize the design of each module.

If you’re tired of feeling limited by The Events Calendar plugin’s customization options, or if you’re looking for a great way to manage and display event information on your website with the full design flexibility of Divi, the Divi Events Calendar may be just the solution. In this post, we’ll take a look at the Divi Events Calendar to help you decide if it’s the right product for you.

If enabled, this feature allows you to place the module in a Divi Theme Builder layout and dynamically display event categories for the current category or page. You can also modify the number of events and the categories shown, customize the date and time format and excerpt length, set the events offset number, and choose to only show past events.

Connection

Finally, in the connection tab, you can add a keyword that will connect the feed module to another module. For example, you can use this to connect the feed module to the events filter module, making it so you can filter the events shown in the feed. Note that the connection ID is only necessary if there are multiple event filter and event feed modules on the page. If there are only one of each, the filter will connect to the feed module automatically. We’ll cover the events filter module in detail below.

Divi Events Calendar Feed Connection

Design Settings

In the design tab, you have full control over the design of the events feed. You can modify the events, image, details, callout, title text, details text, details labels text, excerpt text, callout date, month, day of the week, year, and time text, no results message text, more info button, load more button pagination, paged pagination, numeric pagination, sizing, spacing, border, box shadow, filters, transform, and animation. Divi Events Calendar Feed Design Settings

Events Filter

Let’s take a look at the events filter module. You can use this module to filter other Divi Events Calendar modules, modifying the content shown. Currently, this module only works with the Events Feed module, but the plugin author has indicated that support for the Events Calendar module is coming. Here is the Events Filter module on the front end, with the date range filter selected, filtering the contents of the Events Feed module below.

Let’s take a closer look at the module settings.

Filter Item Settings

The filter items allow you to filter the content shown in the Events Feed module in different ways. Every filter item is added as a child item within the Events Filter module settings, and each filter item has its own settings page.

Divi Events Calendar Filters

There are 16 different filters you can add to the module: search, recurring, category, tag, organizer, venue, city, country, state/province, location, cost, year, month, day, status, time, date range, order by, and future/past.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Types

Within each item’s filter settings, you can set the filter type, label, and choose to show relevant future, past, or both event types. Depending on the type of filter you choose, additional options may be shown, such as selection method (single or multiple items), show/hide a dropdown icon, show dropdown items alphabetically, and search criteria.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Settings

Many of the filter types can be made full-width in the design settings, as seen here with the search filter.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Layout

You can also customize the filter text, sizing, spacing, border, and box shadow design options for each filter item, allowing for lots of design flexibility. In the example below, I have added a dropdown icon to the Organizer filter.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Dropdown Icon

Content Settings

Back in the content tab of the Events Filter module settings, you can set the connection to the filter module in the content tab. This is only necessary if you have more than one set of events feed and events filter modules on the same page. You can also set a background color for the filter.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Connection

Also in the content tab is the layout setting. Currently, the horizontal layout is the only layout available. However, the plugin author has said that there are plans for a vertical layout to be added.

Design Settings

In the design tab of the events filter module settings, you can modify the design for the entire filter layout. You can customize the styles of the filters, active filters, filters dropdown, filters dropdown text, collapse filters, filter search button, sizing, spacing, border, box shadow, transform, and animation.

Divi Events Calendar Design Settings

One notable option here is collapse filters. With this setting, you can display a “hide filters” option that allows you to show or hide the filters from view. You can also enable this option by default.

Divi Events Calendar Filter Collapse

Events Page

The events page module allows you to completely customize how the event pages look by allowing you to dynamically display event elements and build custom events page layouts with the Divi Theme Builder. You can create Theme Builder layouts using the Events Page module, giving you total design flexibility.

Events Page Layout Examples

First, I am going to create a Divi Theme Builder template for all events.

Divi Events Calendar Add Theme Builder Layout

In the theme builder template, I added an image module that is set up to dynamically show the featured image for the post, a dynamic post title module, and the events page module.

Divi Events Calendar Event Page Module Basic Layout

Here is what this basic layout looks like on the front end, without any styling.

Divi Events Calendar Default Event Page Layout

While this basic layout is great, the power in the Events Page module lies in the ability to use multiple Events Page modules together to create more interesting, unique layouts. In the details tab of the module settings, you can enable or disable any of the elements. By just enabling one or a couple of the elements in each module, you can place them throughout your design in different ways. Here’s an example of a more complex layout using several Events Page modules.

Divi Events Calendar Complex Event Page Layout

And here’s the layout outline in the Divi Theme Builder. As you can see, there are multiple event page modules in this layout that add different event details to the page.

Divi Events Calendar Event Page Layout Divi Builder Outline

Here’s a closer look at the Event Page module displaying the time and date at the top of the layout. In the details setting for this module, only the time and date modules have been enabled.

Divi Events Calendar Events Page Show Date Time

Content Settings

In the content tab of the Event Page module, you can enable the details you would like to display.

Content

Under content, you can enable the event description. In the notices options, you can enable different notices that appear based on event status or type.

Details

Under details, you can enable or disable the following: date, time, end time, time zone, location, venue, venue phone, venue location, organizer, organizer phone, organizer email, organizer website, price, category, tags, website, prepositions and dividers, and excerpt. You can also stack event details, enable labels/icons, and stack labels/icons.

Under the Google Maps tab, you can enable the Google Maps link, enable the Google Map, and add your Google Maps API Key.

In the Virtual Events tab, you can enable links to a Zoom meeting, Webex meeting, Facebook live video, or YouTube live video. You can also change the text for the virtual event button.

The Add to Calendar settings allow you to enable the button and modify the button text shown.

You can modify the design settings for the following: past event notice, event status notice, description text, details text, details labels text, map, add to calendar button, add to calendar links, virtual event button, sizing, spacing, border, box shadow, filters, transform, and animation.

Events Subscribe

The Events Subscribe module is a simple module that allows you to add a calendar subscription button to your layout. On hover, the button displays several different methods to subscribe to the events calendar, including iCal, Google Calendar, Outlook, .ics file, and more.

Divi Events Calendar Event Subscribe

This module does not come with many added options, but you can fully style the button using the custom styles option in the design tab.

Events Ticket

The Events Ticket module works with the free Event Tickets addon from The Events Calendar plugin to display tickets and RSVP sections on your event pages. In the module content settings, you can enable event tickets, event RSVP, user confirmations, checkout, and a success message.

Divi Events Calendar Events Ticket Settings

The plugin author has indicated that this module is new and has limited features at the time, however, they hope to add design settings in the future. For now, here is how the RSVP section shows up on one of the event pages.

  1. I was a big fan of this plugin, but a warning to anyone considering using it… It randomly broke permalinks across my entire site. I troubleshot it for months, and it was the only plugin to ever give me issues. It might be ok for a few days or weeks, and then bam no article, project, or event links would work. Going in and re-saving permalinks in settings was the quick fix, but it would happen again at random intervals. Removing the plugin solved the issue.

  2. This is an absolutely brilliant plugin and there are so many ways to customise your events and the layouts. With out it, The Events Calendar is a mostly boring looking event system on Divi. I run 5 sites that use this plugin and is crucial to my clients Business.

  3. I’ve been trying to use The Events Calendar for months now. First they lost my purchase, then lost my account, so getting any support has been impossible. There are so many issues with this plugin. There’s no way to show events with no end time, so they show up with the same start and end time. There’s no way to show recurring events. There’s no way to show multiple prices, such as buy now or at the door. Most critically, after you add any event and view it all you get is a 404 Page Error and you need to update it. After one update many of the events were simply blank. After far too much frustration I went looking for another calendar plugin and found My Calendar, which appeared to solve many of these issues, but The Events Calendar has no export function to be able to import my hundreds of events and all the locations.

    Maybe the Divi Events Calendar solves all these issue but I would think if it’s based on The Events Calendar plugin I doubt it.
