Compact Design

A smaller design great for showing more events in a smaller space, and easily seeing the date on the side. There are a number of options to customize what is displayed (not all of them are demonstrated here) and you can combine more than one option at a time.

[ecs-list-events design="compact"]

Pagination

Show previous and next links, allowing more events to be displayed by visitors. The amount of events on each page can be controlled using the limit value.

[ecs-list-events design="compact" pagination="true" limit="3"]

Date Colors

[ecs-list-events design="compact" fgthumb="white" bgthumb="#0a0a0a" limit="3"]

Thumbnail

[ecs-list-events design="compact" thumb="true" limit="3"]

Venue and Event Start Time

The first event doesn’t have a start time or a venue, as it’s an all-day event with no venue set.

Excerpt

This starts to get a little less “compact” of a design, but you can also include the excerpt of the event description. This can be used in combination with venue=”true”, button and other options.
