Verowa Subscriptions Plugin
With this plugin visitors of your website can subscribe for certain events. This is useful for when you want to limit the number of people attending the event or for contact-tracing.
You can only use this plugin if you have a Verowa license and the subscription-module activated.
Visitors of your website can then subscribe themselves for events! All the data will be sent to your Verowa where you can view and edit each individual subscription.
- Install the plugin from the plugin repository and activate it.
- For the plugin to be able to fetch your Verowa data you need to set the id of your Verowa instance (e.g. “my-parish”) and the API key in the Verowa options panel (e.g. “6ba4ceea235de07b258044a0cb3804d2”).
- If you have Automatic Updates enabled you can sit back an relax. Verowa Connect will update itself when a new version is available.
- You have to create a new page with the shortcode [verowa_dynamic_agenda] in order to show the agenda on your site.
- You can show a list of specific events with the shortcode [verowa_event_list]. With the attributes id, layer_id or target_group you can limit the events shown to specific events or lists. With the attributes max you can set the max amount of events shown. The attribute pro-seite sets the amount of events shown per page. The attribute max_days limits how far in advance the events are allowed to be. With the attribute title you can change the title displayed above the list.
- If you want to display eventlists in the Widget you need to add the Verowa Event Widget to a sidebar und Appearance > Widgets
- After installing you need to make sure you have a default template for the persondetails, personlists, eventdetails and eventlists selected. You can select them under Settings > Verowa Options
- Verowa subscription-module should activated in order to use the following Shortcodes.
- For the registration process to work properly, you need to set up three pages. On the first page you add the shortcode “[verowa_subscriptions_form]” to display a list of events.
On the second page you add the shortcode “[verowa_subscriptions_response]” to instruct your subscribers to click on the confirmation link after they have sent the form.
On the third page you add the shortcode “[verowa_subscriptions_post_validation]”. This page shows a confirmation message to the Users after they have validated their subscription through the confirmation link.
- After that you have to enter the reCaptcha public / secret key under Settings > Verowa Subscriptions. Here you can also configure the info displayed in the form.
