To use the Bandsintown Events widget to the sidebar go to the Appearance tab and click on Widgets. Drag a Text widget to the section you'd like it to appear in and put the
[bandsintown_events] shortcode in the text editor.
We encourage you to use the
[bandsintown_events] shortcode, however, a Bandsintown Events WordPress widget is also included for backwards compatibility (you may have to configure your WordPress theme to use a widgetized sidebar for this).
To use it go to the Appearance tab and click on Widgets. Drag the Bandsintown Events widget to the sidebar you'd like it to appear in. Expand the widget and customize the Title, Artist Name and Display Limit. When you are done, click on Save.
Please also make sure to configure your widget settings in Settings > Bandsintown Events. These will be the default values when using the plugin as a WordPress widget. Note that only a limited amount of settings can be used when using the plugin this way, we encourage you to use the shortcode version instead as the WordPress widget version will be deprecated soon.
You can also customize your Events widget further by following the instructions below.
Advanced users may want to integrate the plugin directly into their theme's template files. To do this, simply insert the template tag
into the PHP source code of your template. The tour dates list will then be rendered in its place.
The tour dates will be styled to match your wordpress theme. If you want to further customize the widget, you can add custom CSS to override any of the defaults. In the Bandsintown plugin settings, the default CSS being used in the plugin is displayed along with a Custom CSS text box allowing you to add any of your own CSS styles.
The shortcode and template tags support optional parameters to customize the look and feel of the tour dates. The artist can also be controlled this way if you want to display listings for an alternate artist.
A list of supported options can be found here.
