How to Install and Configure a WordPress Plugin

1

Install the plugin

To install the plugin, go to the plugin directory of your website, click Add New and type Workshop Butler. Click on More details and check the version. It must be at least 2.0.0. 

During the installation, the plugin adds several new pages:

  • /schedule contains the schedule of upcoming workshops
  • /schedule/event is used to render a detailed information about a workshop
  • /trainers contains the list of trainers
  • /trainers/profile is used to render a detailed information about a trainer
  • /registration is used to render a registration form for a workshop

You can change these pages later.

Add API key and choose a theme

Activate the plugin and go to its settings in Settings -> Workshop Butler. Then, enter the API key and select a theme. If you do not know where to get the API key, follow this one step guide.

Configure event-related pages

Option Description
Customize the text when no events to show
Enter the text to show when there are no upcoming workshops in your schedule
Schedule Layout Tiles layout takes more space and contains information about trainers, running a workshop.
Table layout is more compact. We recommend using it on landing pages.
Integrated Event Page When this option is OFF, a detailed page for each event is hosted elsewhere. When visitors click on the link in the schedule, they are redirected to another website.

The final location depends on the configuration of your event in Workshop Butler. It can be  a hosted page on Workshop Butler or a page on a third-party website.
Event Page Select a WordPress page which is used to render a detailed information about each event. This page MUST contain [wsb_event] shortcode. Otherwise, it won't work.

Note: the page, added by the plugin during the activation, already contains the shortcode. 
Registration Page Select a WordPress page which is used to render a registration form for each event. This page MUST contains [wsb_registration] shortcode. Otherwise, it won't work.

Note: the page, added by the plugin during the activation, already contains the shortcode.
Show all types of tickets When this option is OFF, there are only active or future ticket types on a detailed event page. The ones which are ended or expired, are not shown
Show number of tickets left When this option is OFF, there is no information about a number of left tickets on a detailed event

Configure trainer-related pages

Option Description
Trainer Module When this option is OFF, there are no links to trainer profiles on detailed event pages.

To remove a trainer module completely, delete two pages added by the plugin: List of Trainers and Trainer Profile.
Trainer Profile Select a WordPress page which is used to render a trainer profile. This page MUST contains  [wsb_trainer] shortcode. Otherwise, it won't work.

Note: the page, added by the plugin during the activation, already contains the shortcode.

Next two sections - Pages and Custom CSS - allow you to change the design of all pages. To understand how they work, we recommend reading a documentation for developers.
