I’ve added an option for embedding a single event in a page or post, using the rsvpmaker_upcoming shortcode and the new attribute “one” — containing either the slug, the ID # for the event or the word “next” for the next event on your calendar. This works in RSVPMaker 3.0.5 and higher.
Here are a couple of examples:
The RSVPMaker Entrepreneur Of The Year Program is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and as we kick off our search for the country’s most innovative entrepreneurs, we invite you to nominate someone in your community, or even yourself, to be named among the next generation of legacy builders.
Entrepreneurs are not easily defined. They are men and women, old and young, educated in the Ivy League and at the School of Hard Knocks. This much about them is consistent, however: They are visionaries. They are people of passion. And they have the ambition, drive and talent to take an idea and create a market where none existed before.
I have two scenarios in mind for this:
- Your club holds monthly or weekly meetings and you want to display just the next one upcoming on the front page of your website.
- You have a big event that might be a couple of months away, but you want people to start signing up for it now — even though on the calendar, it might be way down the list. So you use this technique to highlight it on the front page of your site or in a post that will appear at the top of your blog.
If RSVPs are turned on for the event, and the event is still in the future, the RSVP Now! button will be displayed. If someone views an old blog post that includes the embedded event for which the date has gone past, the button will not be displayed.
