PRO: Using Custom Recurring Events
Wondering how to get the perfect combination of attributes to avoid having to enter an event more than once? Let our support maestro Rob walk you through how to use the custom recurring events feature for the WordPress Events Calendar PRO plugin.
Custom recurring events allow for event creators to make more complex recurrence patterns than the standard Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Yearly options do.
On the event creation page, find the “Events Calendar” section and head to the Recurrence dropdown. Skip over all the options until you reach the last one in the list: Custom.
You’ll first need to specify whether the event ends on a certain date or after a fixed number of occurrences. Then set the frequency.
- Daily: Set your event to occur every X days.
- Weekly: Set your event to occur every X weeks, on the days (selected via checkbox) of your choosing.
- Monthly: Set your event to occur every X months, on days filtered by two specific dropdowns of criteria.
- Yearly: Set your event to occur every X years, on months of your choosing AND days filtered by two specific dropdowns of criteria.
Custom recurrence doesn’t allow for everything, but should accommodate for most of the recurring events one would want to configure. If there’s something you’re looking to do but can’t see how given the information presented above, let us know in the comments and we’ll see what we do to help.
