The Event Calendar plugin will look like this out of the box after you have added few events. By default the calendar events will slide down once a viewer click on the event.
Tile View of Calendar
EventOn Calendar comes in a tile style layout. You can achieve this easily with the below shortcode. Tile view is also compatible with our other addons. You can add upto 4 tiles in a row (per each month). And they are build to be responsive, so when you view the calendar on a smaller screen tiles will shrink down to lesser tiles per row.
IMPORTANT: Tile view on event list version will not show multiple tiles in a row regardless of month.
You will need to use event lists ext. addon in order to show continuous row of tiles from other months.
[add_eventon tiles="yes" tile_count="3" tile_height="250" ]
Tile View of Calendar with Images
Tile version of eventON can also be modified via shortcode to show event features images as the tile background image instead of event color. If an event does not have an image the event color will show as background color. Below shortcode in eventON can achieve this.
[add_eventon tiles="yes" tile_count="3" tile_bg="1"]
Tile View with Event Details Below
Another layout modification of the tile view is to show tiles with event details below the event image.
