Events Manager – Events / Locations Slider


Requires Events Manager (free plugin) to be installed & activated.

This add-on lets you create a slider (carousel or fade) for your upcoming Events Manager events and/or locations. You can use the exact same parameters as you are already used to in Events Manager.
[events_slider scope=“future“ category=“3″]

It supports all native Events Manager features:
If it works in EM, it should work in this slider as well. 🙂

  • Supports all native Events Manager arguments
  • Supports Event Placeholders and Location Placeholders
  • Supports full HTML formatting
  • MultiSite compatible: [events_slider blog=“all“]

The plugin core is based on bxSlider.


  • US English (default)
  • Dutch (included in the download)

The plugin is ready to be translated, all texts are defined in the POT file. Any contributions to localize this plugin are very welcome!

Are you part of the Events Manager team?

No, I am not!
I am not associated with Events Manager or its developer, NetWebLogic, in any way. I am ‚just‘ a PHP developer who loves the Events Manager plugin and likes to extend it.

Designed specifically to work with EM using the same EM formatting methods. Great little plugin-easy to install and configure.
