Events Manager – Events / Locations Slider


Requires Events Manager (free plugin) to be installed & activated.

This add-on lets you create a slider (carousel or fade) for your upcoming Events Manager events and/or locations. You can use the exact same parameters as you are already used to in Events Manager.
[events_slider scope=”future” category=”3″]

It supports all native Events Manager features:
If it works in EM, it should work in this slider as well. 🙂

  • Supports all native Events Manager arguments
  • Supports Event Placeholders and Location Placeholders
  • Supports full HTML formatting
  • MultiSite compatible: [events_slider blog=”all”]

The plugin core is based on bxSlider.


  • US English (default)
  • Dutch (included in the download)

The plugin is ready to be translated, all texts are defined in the POT file. Any contributions to localize this plugin are very welcome!

This is a perfect solution for what we need. Suggestion: publish the recommended image size for the featured image so the slide s will look good. My only concern is that given the relatively small installation base, how long will Patrick support this product.

Designed specifically to work with EM using the same EM formatting methods. Great little plugin-easy to install and configure.
