Shorter, custom urls for events widgets

I would be so much better if we could customize URLs for events, and especially recurring events.

I was interested in Elfsight as a work-around for Squarespace’s limited events section, where you can’t easily create recurring events in a series. But the widgets that represent events are janky–long and nonsensical, with no correlation to the event name or date. It would be great to be able to customize the back half of calendar event URLs, so the URL for an event called “Check In” on Feb 1 could end in “check-in-02-01.”

Even better would be the option to have auto-updating URLs in the series to match the calendar date. For example, the series beginning Feb 1, automatically have that event URL end in “-02-01”, and the next one “02-08”, followed by “02-15”, etc.

Hey there and welcome aboard @Dan_Knitzer :wave:

Thank you for adding your idea to the Wishlist!

If I understand correctly, you’d like to add event name and date parameters at the end of the link to each event. However, I am not quite sure how you need these parameters to be received. Do you want to click on the Copy Link button and get the link with the needed parameters:


If I misunderstood you, please elaborate on your use case :slightly_smiling_face:
