Location formatting

24-Jan-11

Locations format works in the same way as events, but the parameters are different.

  • #_LOCATIONNAME indicates the location name (weird, huh?)
  • Other general parameters are #_ADDRESS, #_TOWN, #_LOCATIONDETAILS, #_MAP and #_LOCATIONIMAGE. The #_LOCATIONIMAGE placeholder is also used in the location balloon for the event.
  • #_LOCATIONPAGEURL returns the URL of the location
  • #_LOCATIONIMAGEURL returns the URL of the image associated with the location
  • #_LOCATIONIMAGETHUMB shows a thumbnail of the featured image, instead of the whole image. The size can be choosen in the EME settings (panel ‘Other’), by default it is ‘thumbnail’ size
  • #_LOCATIONIMAGETHUMBURL returns the url to the thumbnail
  • Three tags allow the display of events taking place in the given location. Use #_NEXTEVENTS to insert a list of the upcoming events, #_PASTEVENTS for a list of past events, #_ALLEVENTS for a comprehensive list of all events.
  • #_LOCATIONID returns the location ID
  • #_LATITUDE and #_LONGITUDE return the langitude and longitude for the location
  • #_DIRECTIONS displays a small form so you can ask for driving directions to an event/location
  • #_LOCATIONCATEGORIES displays a comma-separated list of categories a location is in

The aforementioned events list can be similarly formatted through the Default location event list format setting field. This field follows the conventions of events formatting.

You can also use the shortcode [events_list] in the “single location format” setting, with the option location_id=this_location. E.g. this would show the future 5 events for the specific location when viewing that single location details:
[events_list scope=future limit=5 location_id=this_location]
