Fetching Events

Because events are a custom element type, they won't automatically appear on your shop without a bit of templating. Fortunately, implementing these templates are straightforward, and you'll find it quite similar to Commerce.

You can display a list of all events via the following template snippet:

{% for event in craft.events.events.find() %}

Like Variants (opens new window), events are elements, meaning you have access to familiar querying via the Craft Element Criteria Model (opens new window). For instance you can limit events via limit().

{% for event in craft.events.events.limit(5).find() %}

Or select events of a specific type.

{% for event in craft.events.events.type('festival').find() %}


Create a file named index.html file in your templates/shop/products/events folder. This folder may vary depending on your chosen site structure. Enter the content as below:

We're just using the default Commerce templates here, so change this to your needs.

{% extends 'shop/_layouts/main' %}
{% block main %}

{% for event in craft.events.events.limit(5).find() %}
    <div class="row product">
        <div class="two columns">
            {% include "shop/_images/product" with { class: 'u-max-full-width' } %}
        <div class="ten columns">
            <h5>{% if event.url %}{{ event.link }}{% else %}{{ event.title }}{% endif %}</h5>

            {# check for event limit #}
            {% set purchasedEventTickets = craft.events.purchasedTickets({ eventId: event.id }) | length %}
            {% if purchasedEventTickets < event.capacity %}
                <form method="POST">
                    <input type="hidden" name="action" value="commerce/cart/updateCart">
                    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="shop/cart">
                    <input type="hidden" name="qty" value="1">
                    {{ getCsrfInput() }}

                    <select name="purchasableId" class="purchasableId">
                        {%- for ticket in craft.events.availableTickets(event.id) -%}

                            {# check for ticket limits #}
                            {% set purchasedTickets = craft.events.purchasedTickets({ ticketId: ticket.id }) | length %}
                            {% if purchasedTickets < ticket.quantity %}
                                <option value="{{ ticket.purchasableId }}">
                                    {{ ticket }} - {{ ticket.price|commerceCurrency(cart.currency) }}
                            {%- endif -%}
                        {%- endfor -%}

                    <button type="submit">{{ "Add to cart"|t }}</button>
            {% else %}
                <strong>Sold out</strong>
            {% endif %}
{% endfor %}
