Events Element

Last Update: March 30, 2024

The Events Calendar is by far the most popular calendar plugin around. As it is one of the free premium plugins included with Avada, we offer full design integration and support for it. We’ve also created an Events Element, so you can easily display your events anywhere you’d like on your pages or posts. Read below for more details on this very useful element, and watch the video for a visual overview.

How To Use The Events Element

The Events Element allows you to add a customized range of your Events anywhere in your content.

Start by working through the options. This is a relatively simple element to configure. Start by selecting the categories you wish to show in your Event Element. You then choose the number and maximum number of columns to display. To fill the column the element is in, these two numbers should be the same. If you have chosen 4 columns but only 2 events, they will only fill half the column. Likewise, if you have chosen 4 columns, but have 6 events, they will show on a second row. Then continue through the options to style the element as you wish.

Read below for a detailed description of all element options.

Element Options

Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element in the Options > Avada Builder Elements > Events section. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
