WordPress Happy Gig Calendar


IYBI is a creative digital agency based in Sydney. With several clients in the music industry, we saw a real need for a user-friendly tool which allows artists to manage and display a calendar of gigs on their websites. The WordPress Happy Gig Calendar allows artists to quickly and easily create a gig listing including date, time, title, location, description and link to purchase tickets, with the option of including images.


  • Ability to set start and end date for gig spanning several days
  • Ability to include images, videos, text styling, links and shortcodes in Gig Description with the WordPress WYSIWYG editor
  • A duplicate function on existing gigs
  • Includes a widget with the ability to set the number of gigs shown
  • The ability to view all gigs in the past through an archive
  • Advanced shortcode options allowing you to display gigs in a particular date range or by specific gig ID

The WordPress Happy Gig Calendar can be placed on any page or post on your site using the shortcode or featured as a sidebar widget.

Requires WordPress 3.3 higher.


  1. Upload the folder ‹wordpress-gig-calendar› to the ‹/wp-content/plugins/› directory,
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‹Plugins› menu in WordPress.
  3. Insert the shortcode [wpgigs] wherever you want the calendar to appear (advanced display options in documentation).
  4. Start adding gigs through the ‹Wordpress Happy Gig Calendar› menu.


How do I insert WordPress Happy Gig Calendar on my site?

Place the short code [wpgigs] in the desired location.

How do I style text and images in my gig descriptions?

With the WordPress WYSIWYG editor, the same as you would do on a page or post.

What happens if I have more than one gig on the same day?

Gigs are only sorted by date (not time) so they will appear in the order you uploaded them.
