Add a jQuery DatePicker to Event Posts {WP}

jQuery Events DatePicker in WordPress

In previous posts, we set up an events system for WordPress. Users could enter the date of an event, and we had great archives for displaying and categorizing them.

Today, we want to improve the admin end of things. Instead of using custom fields, we’ll make a box for the event’s date, and use jQuery to let users pick the date from a calendar.

Make a Template for Taxonomies & Post Type Archives

Custom Post Type Taxonomies

On Monday, we set up a custom post type in WordPress for listing events. We also added Event Tags to them, and created a template for showing off the individual events.

Today, we want to look at the overall Events page. We’re going to list events by the date they occur, and work back in our tags so users can get a list of only the events that apply to them.

Events List With Custom Post Types and Taxonomies

Events List Script

A few weeks back, we put together a way of adding events to WordPress and displaying them in an easy-to-read list. It was simple to maintain and it worked well, but it didn’t take advantage of all WordPress offers.

In this 2-part tutorial, we are going to extend our events list script to set up a new post type purely for the events, and create a new taxonomy for tagging our events. We will then be able to:

  • Organize our events easily (e.g. If we’re running WordPress classes, we could label them as Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced)
  • Create templates for event lists and individual events.
  • Separate events out of the main post list (So they won’t automatically appear on the homepage anymore).
  • Add new events more conveniently in the admin panel (Especially when we add metaboxes in a later post!)

An Updated WordPress Events List

WordPress Events List

Around this time last year, I wrote a post on how to create an Upcoming Events section on your WordPress blog.

The events can be displayed as a list of posts, ordered by the date in which they occur (And events that come and go will automatically be taken off the list of course).

As several of you found out this January though, that code had an issue in it that meant it stopped working with the new year. In this post, we’re going to fix that (Sorry it’s taken me to now to publish a tutorial with the solution!).

How To Make a WordPress Events List

WordPress Events List

An events list is just what you would expect; a list of upcoming events, ordered by the date they are taking place on (Not the date they were written on!).

In this post, we are going to create our own events list that will let us add events simply by writing posts and assigning them to an “Events” category. It can’t get much easier than that!
