It seems this is one area that I am still struggling with as I transition the site from DNN to WP. Do you recommend any calendars? Most seems tentatively useful and many do not even have reoccurring events as an options, need alone being able to modify a single reoccurring event w/o breaking the entire series. Any suggestions? Do yo know what other churches are using through WP?July 17, 2011 at 1:38 pm #1020
Some use Google Calendar as their calendar and then either embed, or use one of the plugins around.
Or there is the event post type that is included with the theme. But this doesn’t do recurring events.
In the end if you want a full blown calendar, you can’t really beat google.June 28, 2012 at 2:10 am #3253
Sorry to update this, but I am again looking for a reoccurring option. I was wondering if there was any plugin that could be used with the Event Post Type in the Xi Theme that would allow me to keep it, but also allow for repeated events? I like the existing format, but would love a simple plugin to address this. Any thoughts or direction?June 28, 2012 at 7:12 am #3254
I’m afraid not.
The Event Calendar is pretty good, though you have to pay for the recurring option. Formatting is kept simple so should fit with most themes.
One of the reasons for developing the post type in the theme was that too many plugins force too much ‘style’ on presentation of data instead of letting the theme do its work.
We actually have a plugin version of our post type in development, to which we hope to add repeat events at some point. This will be made available to themeloom members.June 28, 2012 at 4:56 pm #3255
If you are developing such a plugin, then to be honest I will wait. I so much prefer the way you have integrated and designed everything, that I have been resistant to adding something that adds overhead and distracts from the overall feel, as you have observed! I will wait with giddy anticipation and if you need any help (i.e. guinea pigs) let me know!November 18, 2012 at 6:59 pm #3581
Just wondering if you had any sense as to when you might be deploying the reoccurring feature for the Calendar that has been discussed previously?November 19, 2012 at 4:04 pm #3582
I’m afraid it is still on the to do list.November 19, 2012 at 6:46 pm #3586
Okay – thanks!June 13, 2013 at 4:15 am #4032

I second the request to “bump up” repeating events for the theme! It seems to be the one glaring hole in a set of really great themes for faith communities, which basically operate around a repeating set of events.

Hi I was just wondering if there has been any updates to Themeloom Event Posts adding the recurring feature?

This is unlikely to be added to our event post type. There are plenty of other solutions.
Try Event Organiser if you want recurring events for free or The Events Calendar Pro.
