Arlo

Settings

Under the Arlo settings, you can specify settings for the plugin and modify the existing templates.

In order to make the plugin 100% compatible with your WordPress, you need to publish the pages what the plugin created for you during the installation and after you have to set them as host page under the page setup

General settings

Platform name

You can find your platform name in the URL of the management platform.

Do not copy the whole url, just your platform name.

https://my.arlo.co/YOUR_PLATFORM_NAME/

If you want to re-import all the data, you can click on the 'Re-import all data now' link below your platform name. The import time depends on the amount of data in your platform.

Don't forget to save your settings before you click on the 'Re-import all data now' link

Price shown

Here you can define how you want to represent the prices in the plugin

  • Exclude GST: it shows an "excl. GST" label after the price
  • Include GST: it shows an "incl. GST" label after the price

Note, that the "GST" text comes from your platform settings, according to the region information. For example, if the region is set for UK, the label will be "VAT". Contact Arlo support to have this setting changed, however, note that this affects other areas of the platform, so consult with the project lead for your organisation about this change.

Free text

If the event is free, you can define here what text will be shown, for example ‘Free’, or ‘No charge’.

"No events to show" text

When there is no event on the catalogue or on the upcoming event list, the given thext will be shown. This text will be displayed with the [arlo_no_event_text] shortcode.

No event on template text

If there is no running event on a template, the given message will be displayed.

You can change the order of your regions if you grab the line with your mouse and drag to reorder them. The first region will always be your default region.

It's really important, when you make changes according to the regions, save the settings first and re-synchronize the data.
