Event Color by Taxonomy for Calendarize it!

Event Color by Taxonomy add-on for Calendarize it! allow you to set a default color for all Events assigned to a specific Taxonomy. This can be any of the three default Taxonomies “Calendar”, “Venue”, “Organizer” or any Custom Taxonomy you have created using the Capabilities and Taxonomies add-on.

Set default color for Events by Taxonomy

By default you set the color of an Event in Calendarize it! when you create the event. That means it is set individually for each event. This gives you great flexibility when it comes to coloring events.

However we have received requests from customers to be able to set a default color for one of the default Taxonomies “Calendar”, “Venue” or “Organizer”.  This way all events assigned to a specific Taxonomy will get the default color unless you set the color individually.

With the Event Color by Taxonomy add-on for Calendarize it! you can easily set the text color and the background color when you create the Taxonomy.
