I have an events page, I would like to show the events as a list rather than calendar

Hi,
I would like to know whether it is possible to show the list of events as a list rather than on a calendar?

    Hey T,

    Hope your day is going well!

    I'd be happy to help you with this :slight_smile:

    If you want to change your main /events page to the listing style then you can do this via Events > Settings and check the "Override default appearance" box then select archive template "Plugin: Default" from the drop down (screenshot attached).

    You can also add this shortcode on to any page you like and it should give a similar look:

    [eab_archive]

    With the shortcode you have many parameters you can use to customize the list, I have listed them with their definition below:

    network - (boolean) Query type
    date - (date) Starting date - default to now
    relative_date - (strtotime-compatible string) A date relative to now or to date argument
    lookahead - (boolean) Don't use default monthly page - use weeks count instead
    weeks - (integer) Look ahead this many weeks
    category - (string or integer) Show events from this category (ID or slug)
    categories - (list of comma-separated IDs) Show events from these categories - accepts comma-separated list of IDs
    limit - (integer) Show at most this many events
    order - (ordering keyword) Sort events in this direction
    paged - (boolean) Allow paging - use with "limit" argument
    page - (integer) Start on this page
    class - (string) Apply this CSS class
    template - (string) Subtemplate file, or template class call
    override_styles - (boolean) Toggle default styles usage
    override_scripts - (boolean) Toggle default scripts usage

    You can also view these in the Events > Shortcodes section :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps!

    Let us know if you still need any further assistance here.

    All the best,
    Tyler

      Hey Ygor,

      Hope you are doing well today - hope you've enjoyed the first week of your membership so far :slight_smile:

      As for your question, you can make the built in event archive page a list by overriding the default appearance via Events+ > Settings > Appearance Settings. Choose any template except calender for the "Archive Template".

      Some templates will work better with different themes. So, give them each a try :slight_smile:

      Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.

      All the best,
      Tyler
