Event Locations URLs

Hey! Try out our new documentation pages, hope you like it!

Event Location URLs are a simple way to attach a URL to your event, in situations where you may want to link out to the event organizer for more information, or if the event is being held online in some form.

Check our other location types for integrations with webinar platforms, such as Zoom

Once enabled as per our location types documentation, simply select the URL location type in the location settings, and you’ll be presented with two fields:

  • URL – The actual URL/address to link to.
  • Link Text – The text used when creating an HTML link.

Displaying URL Information

We have included some placeholders and conditional placeholders to help you display your meeting information on your event formats. We recommend wrapping this information in conditional placeholders so that non-URL events will not attempt to display it.

Conditional placeholders


Displays the … contents only if the event has a URL as the event location.


Displays the … contents if the event specifically does NOT have an event location URL.


You can use the following bits of information with the following placeholders:

  • #_EVENTLOCATION – An HTML link, opens in a new tab.
  • #_EVENTLOCATION{url} – Just the URL
  • #_EVENTLOCATION{text} – Just the Link Text
  • #_EVENTLOCATION{_self} – Regular HTML link
  • #_EVENTLOCATION{_parent} – HTML link with target=”_parent”
  • #_EVENTLOCATION{_top} – HTML link with target=”_top”

Filtering URL events

The location_type search attribute will support the value zoom_meeting for filtering events with Zoom Meetings, and zoom_webinar for Zoom Webinars. For example:

[events_list location_type=”zoom_meeting”]

Will only show events that have a Zoom Meeting associated with it. You can also use commas to filter multiple types, such as zoom_meeting,zoom_webinar .
