Thumbnail Addition, Event listing by Recent completed, and shortcode listing

Hi all. First, I am enjoying using this plug-in but wanted to ask some questions. Before I start making changes to anything, I wanted to get some help making some general modifications.

[Thumbnail Images]

I would like to show the featured image on the archive template using [eab_archive]. Do you call that already and is it something I can add into the shortcode?

[Shortcodes / Recent]

Do you have a list of all shortcodes available for this plug-in. Google was not helpful. In particular, I see that there is an archived shortcode, but looking for a shortcode that only shows events that are coming. Additionally, I will want to show events that have already passed the current date and time.

    Hi there @DBLDeathDealer

    I hope you are well today.

    Glad your enjoying the plugin, with the thumbnails by default the plugin doesn't show them, Would you be comfortable with editing the code yourself?

    You can view a list of all shortcodes by going to wp-admin > events > shortcodes

    Jack,

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    Thumbnails: I would be good editing the code. Just need to know the location to edit it. No issues with doing that at all.

    Shortcodes: Seeing what you have there, I would need to do two shortcodes for a page then.

    Current Events something like:

    [eab_archive]

    The idea of this area is to only show events that are coming soon. I don't want it showing expired events.

    Past Events something like:

    [eab_expired]

    The idea of this area is to only show expired events. This is the true archive of information in regards to events.

    Jack,

    Just so you can see what I am trying to do here.

    This is the actual page: http://hubofgamers.com/test-page-events/

    I want to have the items listed like the following

    2 x Columns for Events

    Thumbnail
    Title:
    Date:
    Location:

    Then on this page: http://hubofgamers.com/events/archive/2013/04/quantic-vs-complexity/

    - Remove breadcrumb
    - Add User Comments
    - Add No, Maybe, Attending buttons

    The main page I showed you just has the data and I want the user to click and go to the main page so they can chat about the event, say if they are coming, and like the event/share event.

    Does that make sense?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
