Event URLs Usage

The Event URLs add-on allows you to easily add a custom URL to Sugar Calendar Events, which is great for linking to events that are happening on other web sites or when you wish to use a page on your site other than the default one created by Sugar Calendar.

With this add-on, you can add a custom URL to any event created through Sugar Calendar, set it to automatically redirect or open in a new tab, and even add some custom text for the link itself.

Requirements

  • WordPress 5.3 or higher
  • PHP 7.0.0 or higher
  • Sugar Calendar 2.0.18 or higher

Installation and Setup

First, download the .zip from your account page then log into your WordPress site and navigate to Plugins  Add New  Upload Plugin.

After the plugin has been installed, activate it then navigate to  Calendar  Add New  Links.

Here you are presented with 4 new configuration options for an Event Link:

  • URL - The custom web address that you'd like to add to this Event
  • Redirect - Checking this will automatically send visitors to this Event page on your site to the URL that you've configured above
  • Target - Checking this will, when clicked, optionally open the URL in a new browser tab
  • Text - The custom text to include as the contents of the link, rather than the URL itself
