Facebook Events Calendar – WordPress Plugin

Can you see a calendar widget right on my right sidebar? Yes, thats it. 

See More demo here

Facebook Events Gallery is a Premium WordPress Plugin that would allow you to display your Facebook Events and all the events you have RSVP on facebook as widget or as whole page/post content.

The feature not only limits to how they are used as widget or post/page content, you can use it to display the events from the Facebook Fan Pages you own.

Widget and shortcode integration of the plugin is as easy as counting 1 to 3.  Shortcode generator tool is avaliable on plugin’s Option page.

Caching: Well, whenever it comes for API, its always a good idea to have caching enabled whenever possible or applicable as this boosts the performance of the site and also you may not always have reach to the API or you may any kind of hourly or daily limits for requests to be made.

So, here we have it too. Cache are easily configured and all caching is done on server database and you can pre-define the cache expiry time from plugin options page or even disable the caching.

CSS Customization?

This is the most crucial event when you are getting some plugin and the interface they give aren’t always support your website theme. So what we have here is, this plugin uses the jQuery UI ThemeRoller themes. Go ahead and create your own theme for the plugin. The theme initially used is “Smoothness” with few custom edits.

wp-content/plugins/[PLUGINNAME]/css/theme.css and the images folder with it would be the files you would like to touch if you plan on doing the theme modifications.

Disabling Admin Menu Bar

Its usually annoying that the theme displays so called WordPress Admin Bar on the theme when you never wanted to. In several cases, it just disrupts the theme layout. Mostly when you are a freelancer like me and your client asks “Why isn’t the body background irregular with the header image”, and you will have no option but to call them and ask them to view the website using different browser or device without logging in as admin.

But, it still not late and you can remove them with just few lines of code on your functions.php file.

Add:

But if you are using wordpress 3.3+, then you can get that option easily by editing your profile via User>Your Profile  and un-tick “Display Toolbar when viewing website” (Though this isn’t always possible)

Its always a good idea to not to let the annoying admin-bar appear if that’s going to ruin your whole day of work.

I will soon post on how to disable admin-bar on wp-admin too.. that may be helpful.

Allowing Shortcode in sidebar widget

By default, WordPress won’t allow you to add shortcode in sidebar widget. There are several plugins that requires shortcode to be added to post, or do the hard-coding jobs to do them manually on template. And its frustrating when you have a dynamic sidebar and you want a widget that runs on shortcode.

So, a line of code added to functions.php of your theme can make a difference and you can just add shortcode like in posts.

Add

to functions.php file of the theme and after then its all possible.

Happy Widgetizing!!
