Events+ Show Global Events on Main Site

hey there

I'm wanted to display all events from the entire network on my main site on my MS install.

1. Can this be done
2. Is it standard - ie: have I missed the instruction somewhere
3. If it isn't standard - what code (exactly) can I use on my main site to pull this info

    Here is a post on setting up Events+ plus that was created not to long ago. It even has some video tutorials on Events+ you may be interested in viewing. The link is:

    Some one asked a similar question as you in the comments section and the response was this:

    Thanks for the comment. To answer your question simply: yes. There are several ways to do something like that.
    One – if you use multisite with BuddyPress – Events Plus integrates with the group functionality, which means you can display your group events in that system. It’s a very nice feature.

    two – you can add the custom plugins that come with Events+, particularly the front page editing shortcode, which allows events to be added from the front-end. Combine that with the capabilities plugin functionality and you can control user access and priviliges – as to who can post events, etc.

    but perhaps, an interesting solution might be to integrate it with a form plugin like gravity forms, which allows people to add content / posts from a front-end form. You could combine that with this plugin, and have the ability to charge people to create events on your site. Since events + uses the custom post type and custom fields, they are all accessible from that view.

    Hope that helps.
    Good luck!

    Hope this helps. Cheers!

    Hiya,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    I'm wanted to display all events from the entire network on my main site on my MS install.

    You will need to use Post Indexer to index all events from your network and then you can have a look at the thread here : https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/listing-network-events-on-main-site-of-multisite

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers

    hey guys thanks heaps - what a super speedy response.

    I had actually just come back online to look for the post indexer plugin - so cheers!

    Now a couple of questions...

    I'm looking at Post Indexer Global Settings and it's showing only Default Post Type : post

    should I add product & event?

    I've put the global shortcode in a pagebut i'ts not showing anything, even tho I've got events added to a subsite and the main site.

    You can see the global page here: http://goodoldays.com.au/network-events/

    And the individual event page for the main site here: http://goodoldays.com.au/events/

    Seriously having trouble with this
