Before moving forward to know how to show your events in grid layout, let’s discuss what is a ‘Loop item’
A “loop item” typically refers to an element within a loop or series. Here, loop item is a design that you used to showcase your events series in a loop structure like List, Grid and many more.
The Events Loop Item functions as a post, although its behavior slightly different from that of typical post. With the Events Loop Item, you have the ability to craft a unique design for a event; however, this design can be applied multiple times for various events on multiple post and pages.
Web designers and programmers frequently employ loop items to present and arrange information from a database or collection in an organized manner on a webpage.
- The event Loop Item page will navigate you to the list of preset loop templates, which come with different designs and layouts (Grid, list etc).
- Once you have selected the desired template, click on the ‘Edit with Elementor’ option of the template.
- In Elementor of ‘Loop Item’ you can edit the template by changing the widgets setting or their style settings.
- You can also create a loop item from scratch using the multiple widgets under Events Loop Category in Elementor. To achieve that you just need to add a new Loop Item under Events Loop Item submenu of Events Addons.
The plugin comes with multiple widgets to design or modify the loop items. Each Widgets has there own settings and style settings. These settings will help you design your loop item in more elegant way.
Display the Loop Item on Your Page

This streamlined experience enhances user satisfaction and encourages them to explore more of what your website has to offer.

Date, time, location, and brief descriptions are readily available, allowing visitors to make informed decisions about attending. This convenience can lead to higher attendance rates for your events
