Event Manger comes with a variety of “shortcodes” that you can place anywhere on the website.  They are designed to show lists of events (classes) in a number of formats for time periods. They are dynamic, meaning that the information comes directly from the class (event) definitions.  That means you only need to add a class and it automatically appears on a list.  If time passes and the class was offered in the past, the class is no long shown.  This is a draft copy of the page. 

This list, by default, shows only classes that are schedule in the future.

I used Categories to map to Medium.  So, this list is a list of mediums.  You can select a medium and see the classes offered for that medium.

Sawnee Association of the Arts is proud to offer opportunities to learn and have some creative fun.  Through a special arrangement with the city of Cumming, SAA has set-up studio space in the historic Brannon-Heard House where it will offer art classes across a wide variety of mediums. Classes will be taught by either SAA members or by highly recognized regional artists who will host special workshops.

Classes range from traditional mediums like painting and drawing to entertaining courses on soap making and culinary arts. Open studio times will also be available, giving local artists space to work on individual projects, opportunities to meet new people and even gain inspiration from others.

Sawnee Association of the Arts is proud to offer opportunities to learn and have some creative fun.  Through a special arrangement with the city of Cumming, SAA has set-up studio space in the historic Brannon-Heard House where it will offer art classes across a wide variety of mediums. Classes will be taught by either SAA members or by highly recognized regional artists who will host special workshops.

Classes range from traditional mediums like painting and drawing to entertaining courses on soap making and culinary arts. Open studio times will also be available, giving local artists space to work on individual projects, opportunities to meet new people and even gain inspiration from others.

Classes are held at the historic Brannon-Heard House. 

This calendar is a plugin that gets it’s information from another plugin called, Events Manager.  Events Manager allows you to setup classes with descriptions, schedules and such.  This calendar pulls in the information from those definitions.  That means that as classes are added or deleted or changed in Events Manger, what you see on this calendar automatically (dynamically) changes.  Hover over the class name and see a description.  Click the name and you are taken to the page within Events Manger for that “event” (or for us, the class).  This is the main page the visitor will be taken to to view all the information about the class and to sign up.  You can point to this “event” from anywhere on the website.  If you click on any of the class names in the tables below, you’ll be taken to the Event Manager page for that class. There’s more information on Events Manger at the bottom of this page. 

Class Schedule (Table)

Use the search box to find a word (like Painting or an instructor’s name) or click a column heading to sort the table how you like. Select the Class Name to see the description and enroll.  Note, the table is manually maintained, meaning I have to go in and add a row when a class is added, or change a row when class information is changed – like the date or the fee.  I added the photo of the instructor in the last column which makes the rows somewhat “tall”.  Without the photo, the table becomes something like you’d see in Excel.  Note, that if you click on the class name, you will be taken to the Event Manger page where you can view information for the class and sign up.  It does NOT have to be this way, I can link to the existing pages we have to sign up – it’s just the way I’ve design this table today.

Class Schedule by Medium and Month (Static)

This is simply a page I designed from scratch.  Everything you see is manually maintained.  If a class is added, I would have to go into this page and add the information.  If time passes and the class was offered in the past, I would go in and delete it. Also, you can’t sort or filter the “list”.  It’s much prettier than any other list, but that’s because I am in complete control of what you see. You can’t sort or search through it.  Note, that if you click on a class name, you are taken to the Event Manager page for that class.  Again, it does this only because that’s how I defined the link.

They embrace the art and the opportunity to share their experience and expertise.  Click on the ClASS NAME to the left to see the class description, a bio of the instructor and to sign up to learn. 

Event Manger Plugin

 

Event Manger is a plugin for Word Press.  You use it to establish an “event” for which a person would register to attend.  You might think, Concert or some other performance, but replace “Event” with “Class”.

When you define a “Class”, you give it these attributes:

  • A description. I’ve used this field for both the description and the instructor bio and material list
  • Class Schedule – the date/time is starts and date/time it ends
  • Address where the class is held (with a Google Map display)
  • Registration Details to include:
    • Price
    • Min number of students
    • Max number of students
    • Registration start and end dates
    • Coupons
    • User defined Category and Tags. I’ve used Category to indicate Medium

Once the events are entered, Event Manger manages some aspects of registration.  For example:

You cannot register for a class if:

  • If “today” is before the start registration date
  • If “today” is after the end registration date
  • If the class is “full” – meaning the maximum number of students have signed up
  • If you have already registered

All of this is managed for you. 

NOTIFICATIONS

As you would expect, you can have emails sent to the student and others (like instructor or the “admin”)  when someone signs up.  

You can also have an email sent to the “admin” if the student cancels.  

The student may receive an email if the class is canceled.  You can also have Event Manger send a reminder email X days before the class begins. 

ADMIN, EVENT OWNER and ATTENDEES

Within Events Manager there are three roles of individuals.  The ADMIN has complete access to everything and would likely be one of you.  

There is an EVENT OWNER role that, for us, is the Instructor.  He/she owns the class.  Although, we may not want to turn on this feature, an Event Owner can go to a special page within Event Manager and create his/her class. They would add the description, bio and specify the fee and time/date.  It then goes into a pending state for the ADMIN to approve.  Once approved, it becomes live and becomes part of the class lists, calendars and such.
