Chronosly and Page Builders


Hey guys, we were busy working on Chronosly improves.
On this new release, 2.7.3, we were focused on Chronosly event manager compatibility with most important page builders on the WordPress world.

Wait a minute, WTF is a page builder?

Page builder is a plugin or theme’s component to customize and design pages quick and easy. Most of you will be already familiar with the HTML components of the ‘Text’ view and actual ‘Visual’ preview of content in the WordPress visual editor. Page builders are the advanced childs of the WordPress visual editor.


Page builders use components to build responsive page layouts inside a grid view.
To understand how it works, they are similar to the WordPress widgets sections, were we can just drag and drop the available widgets into a sidebar and rearrange them easily. Once we save the sidebar widgets, we get a sidebar on our site with many built in features without any coding required.
Page builders provide similar structure and features to the content but more complex and powerful, allowing to define every pixel of our layout and include a bunch of components like image gallery, video players, button creator...
In short, a page builder is a perfect tool for designing websites fast, with quality design and without needing to know code.

Ok, but why we also need it on Chronsly?

Let's say this section is basically for all of you that have miss some on our events drag and drop builder, some special features, power, integrations, and you are already used to work with your lovely page builder.
But even you don’t know anything about page builders for sure you will be interested to know Chronosly is now integrated with the best page builders, so you can customize the content of every event, place and organizer page using one of those page builders:

  • WPBakery Visual Composer
  • Divi Builder
  • Elementor
  • Page Builder by SiteOrigin
  • Beaver Builder

This feature makes Chronosly even more customizable Chronosly, so you can customize your events simply and fast, just drag & drop, creating more powerful and professional content on your site and events.


Customizing your own events was never as easy, with Chronosly template editor + custom field builder addon + page builders, you can create custom fields for your events editable via admin, manage the look and feel of Chronosly’s elements and finally edit how content inside events have to looks like with your best page builder.

Don’t hesitate to try the power of these 3 tools together!, the best flexibility and customization for your events on the WordPress universe.

The Field Builder – What is and how it works


Probably you haven't heard about one of our most important launches on Chronosly calendar. One of the best addons that brings to our events the greatest customization feature on the entire wordpress events market.

Chronosly field builder

It's not just because is a Chronosly addon, simply it doesn't exists other similar thing , where you can add all of your custom fields to your events, organizer and places, and integrate all of those field with all of the Chronosly features, making your events management incredible customizable.

Stop using tipically defined events fields:

  •  create your desired fields and use it every where you want,
  • display it where you want,
  • use this field as a filter or
  • let customer send events with your speciall needs filed.

 

Possibilities are endless.

None of the other plugins brings this feature, to customize any field you want on your events.

But those not makes the addon one of the greatest thing on Chronosly, there are other reasons, you also can add those fields to, for example, your filter bar or just on your template editor, to decide what and where you show that info on your events calendar.

also on your events form submission, to let your customers or partners send your desired info.
At last, you can add all of this customizable power to your Import and export csv file, to automatize the external sync with other platforms.

 

Stop talking, show me the power of field builder

We will show you how easy is create and customize our custom fields on events.

On that example we want to have all of our events targeted to our objective public based on events content rating (general, +13, +17,...).
Also we want to be able to filter our events by those targeting, to make easier to find any event to our customers interest.

First of all, we will create the specificall content rating segments with Chronosly Field Builder:

Once we have create our custom content rating field, it will be available on all Chronosly addons settings, and also on template editor, to add it and increase the power of events management.

We will add custom rating field to the Filter ans Sort addon, to let our customers filter by the field (we have activated the new field, the resalted one)

The result on our filter bar should be like this:

 

Finally we want to add this field to our form submission, this way all of our customers must send us the content rating of their events:

 

 

And it looks like this:


As you can see, the power of customization on your events, plus the customization on templates editor on all calendar views, makes Chronosly the more customizable events calendar on WordPress.
We hope you have liked and it helped to understand how you can improve your event site. Don't hesitate to point any doubt and suggestion, we will work together to make Chronosly the best events manager WordPress plugin.
