Add "tags" to events like ones can do for posts?

I have added a sitewide tag system to our site (see and was hoping to be able to tag events and have them show up here (see empty space in bottom left). Is there any way to add the ability to tag events?

Hello Daniel,

Is that a widget area? If so, you can add a category shortcode to that widget area. In order to do this, you will need to add this bit of code somewhere in your theme’s function.php file:

/** Allow shortcodes in widget areas **/
add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

Then you can add categories to the events and use the [EVENT_ESPRESSO_CATEGORY event_category_id=”your_category_indentifier”] shortcode to a text widget.

Hi Jonathan,

That might work, but we are already using categories for a different purpose.

Any ideas for incorporating tags in addition to categories?

Hi Daniel,

Does your tagging system work with posts and pages? If so, you could either create posts when creating events (at the bottom of the event setup), of you could tag pages and use this shortcode on pages:

[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id="your_event_identifier"]
