Lightmotion.net (they do fire and light shows) have an interesting use of the plugin widget. Gerald has used two widgets with different parameters to show “past events” and “future events” that appear to be grouped. The plugin does allow for past and future events to be styled differently, this would not achieve the grouping. I assume that what he has done is have widgets with following parameters:
- widget past (showing events for last 20 days): startoffset=-20 days=20
- widget future (showing events for last 20 days): days=20
If you want to do something like this yourself, one thing to bear in mind is that one must balance the number of events with your event frequency and the timeperiod to ensure that the most recent ‘past’ events will show. Use events=x in the shortcode to override the default number of events (60? or 30? I forget!)
http://lievin.fr/ is an example of the widget with months localised in french.
http://www.bikesidela.org/ are one of the few sites that have actually added a bit of their own css. Here they have used a table row hover to display the event description on hover. All done using css.
http://ylakeland.com have the calendar events plugin widget in a tab.
The friends of cycling are using the plugin to show different calendars or sets of events in their sidebar
The Marianas Paddlesport Racing Association uses the upcoming events widget to list tides:
Another pale grey styling – this page from http://www.kunstkreis-germering.de/termine has several calendars and ics file on the same page. The styling appears to be a result of the theme styling (the image background and borders) and the default plugin styling.
