Ready to get started with Filter Bar? We’ve got you covered! The steps below will help you get set up and ready to use your calendar’s new filtering features.
If you are new to our core plugin, The Events Calendar, you’ll want to make sure to familiarize yourself with it before continuing here.
1. Download and install the plugin. Don’t forget that all of our paid add-ons require The Events Calendar to be installed and active as well.
2. If you’ve just purchased Filter Bar, the license key will be automatically added for you. Just in case you don’t have the license activated, see our guide on how to input your license key. The plugin will work without the license key, but you’ll need it for automatic updates when a new version is released. Need updates on both your dev site and your live site? We can do that.
3. Configure your settings. Choose from our many options so that Filter Bar works just how you want it. By default, only Event Category, Tags, Venue, Featured Events, and Cost are enabled, so if you’d like to enable additional filters, you can do so under Events Settings > Filters.
Hooray! Filter Bar is now up and running and can be seen on your calendar! Your users will thank you for making events even easier to find.
