Shortcodes

Once you have created your event and ticket types, you should present that somewhere on your website. And that is where shortcodes are kicking in.

 

Shortcode Builder

To make things even easier for you, good people from Tickera created a shortcode builder which creates a shortcode based on the options you have selected. Shortcode builder button is placed anywhere where you can find all of the rest standard WordPress formatting tools (pages, posts, custom post types of other plugins, etc.) and, magically, shortcodes created by it will work anywhere you see Tickera shortcode builder button.

Once you hit Tickera shortcode builder button, a popup will appear where you can select from the dropdown which Tickera content you would like to represent and based on the selection there, shortcode attributes that will appear below will be different.

So, let's dig in and see what are the options.

 

Ticket/Add to cart button

First option and selected by default is the one that is most often used - ticket/add to cart button.

When this option is selected you will find the following options at your disposal:

  1. Ticket type - select which ticket type you would like to add shortcode for
  2. Link Title - here you can change the default (and boring) Add to Cart title to anything that suits your needs
  3. Soldout Message - once all of your tickets are sold out this message will appear in place of the previous Add to Cart
  4. Show Price - choose whether to show the price of the ticket next to the title or not
  5. Price Position - select where would you like your ticket price to appear
  6. Link Type - there are two types of the link types:
    • Standard Add to Cart which will require your customers to first add ticket(s) to the cart after which they will need to click to Cart button in order to load the Cart page and continue checkout. This is suitable if you want allow your customers to add to cart more tickets of different types after which they can proceed with the checkout.
    • As opposed to the logic of the previously explained link type, Buy Now link type loads the cart page as soon as customer adds ticket to the cart skipping the need to click on the Cart button. This might come handy if, for example, you are offering only one ticket type and want to make purchasing as simple and fast as possible.

Finally when selecting all of the options, hit Insert Shortcode button and a shortcode with all the necessary attributes will appear.

Event tickets shortcode will add a table with all of the tickets available for certain event. When this item is selected in the dropdown menu, following options will be available:

Event Sponsors Logo

If you have the obligation to place your event sponsor's logo on your page or post, you can easily do that by placing a Event Sponsors Logo shortcode.

Number of tickets sold for an event

This shortcode will let you display a number of the total tickets sold for the certain event regardless of how many ticket types you have associated to that event.

8

 

Number of tickets left for an event

With this shortcode you will be able to present how many total tickets, regardless of the ticket types, are still available for your event.

9

 

Number of sold tickets

By selecting this shortcode you can display how many tickets of the selected ticket type are sold.

10

 

Number of available tickets

With this shortcode you can present how many tickets of the selected ticket type are still available.

Display Order History for a User

This shortcode will display a complete order history for the logged in user. However, that requires having your users registered and logged in. So, for example, if you have set Force Login option in Tickera Settings that means that only registered and logged in users will be able to purchase tickets but they will also have the option to visit this page again and see all of their previous purchases and download tickets at the same time.

This shortcode doesn't have any special attributes and should be placed "as is".

 

* if you installed our Event Calendar add-on, an additional item will appear in the shortcode dropdown menu for inserting a shortcode that displays Event Calendar.
