External Events Calendar 0.1

Author: Nathaniel Taintor
This plugin is useful for listing speaking engagements, upcoming social events, or other calendar listings which link outside of your site. It adds a special link category for “Upcoming Events” with meta fields for location and date. Any links in this category can be displayed through a widget withoption to display all events or only future events, show in ascending/descending order, and options to show or hide link images and descriptions
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

Upload the entire folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Add links to the “Upcoming Events” category, and give them a “Location” (optional) and “Date”
Use the “External Events Calendar” widget in any widgetized area in your site

Can the widget also show link descriptions and images?

Version 0.1 has the option to show descriptions. Link images will be added in 0.2.

What date formats are acceptable?

This plugin uses the php strtotime() function, which can handle a lot of date formats. “Next Monday”, for example, will be correctly computed (but will always refer to the next Monday in the future, not the next Monday from the time someone added the link). ’10/5/10′ will be interpreted as October 5, not May 10. But “10 May” will work as expected. PHP does not, to the best of my knowledge, recognize non-English dates in text format very well. “1 enero 11” will probably fail.
