Events play a crucial role in engaging your website visitors and keeping them informed about upcoming activities. If you're running a WordPress website and want to display your events in a user-friendly way, the Odd Circles WordPress plugin is a fantastic choice. In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of installing the Odd Circles plugin and displaying your events on your website.
Begin by logging into your WordPress dashboard. To do this, type your website URL followed by "/wp-admin" (e.g., www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin). Enter your username and password to access the dashboard.
Once you're inside the dashboard, locate the left-hand menu. Hover over the "Plugins" option, and then click on "Add New." This will take you to the WordPress plugin installation page.
In the search bar at the top right corner of the plugin installation page, type "Odd Circles." Hit the "Enter" key or click the search icon. WordPress will then display the Odd Circles plugin among the search results.
Find the Odd Circles plugin in the search results and click on the "Install Now" button. WordPress will automatically download and install the plugin for you.
Once the installation is complete, the "Install Now" button will change to "Activate." Click on it to activate the Odd Circles plugin.
After activation, you'll be redirected to the plugins page. Find the Odd Circles plugin and click on "Settings." This will take you to the plugin's settings page, where you can configure how your events will be displayed.
On your Odd Circles dashboard, you can add and manage your events. Click on "Add Event" to start creating an event. Fill in all the necessary details, such as the event name, date, time, location, description, and any other relevant information.
To display your events on your website, you'll need to add a shortcode. Create a new page or post where you want to display the events, and then insert the Odd Circles shortcode provided in the plugin settings. Save the page or post.
To make sure your events are displayed correctly, preview the page or post you just created. You should see a list of your events, beautifully formatted according to your chosen settings.
If you're satisfied with the way your events are displayed, go ahead and publish the page or post. Your website visitors can now access all your events in one place.
