run.events event data, such as widgets for ticket purchasing, displaying speakers, sessions, agenda, and sponsors can easily be integrated with any website and with every CMS in only a few minutes.
  

In this short article, we will show you how to integrate run.events widgets with your WordPress site in four quick steps. The whole process should not take longer than five minutes.

1. Copy the widget code.

Go to your event in run.events, open the "Settings" section, and open the "Widgets and Links" tile. Copy the code from the widget that you want to embed. The widgets will work as-is, but pay attention that for most of the widgets there are additional options with which you can fine-tune the widget behavior.

2. Go to your WordPress site, and open the page (or post!) where you want to display your data from run.events.

3. Create a new "Custom HTML" section on that page, and paste the widget code that you have copied from run.events.

As you can see, your widget is already there, and it is already fully functional. It will take over standard styles from your website, so you can start selling tickets immediately, or display your speakers, sponsors, and agenda.
 
 
 

Optionally, you can also restyle run.events widgets. In this example, let's style this widget to look even more like our website.

5. Create a new "Custom HTML" section on that same page, and paste the CSS which you will find at the bottom of this post.
 
Move that new "Custom HTML" section above the existing "Custom HTML" section which contains your widget.

As you can see, the widget now looks significantly different, and more adjusted to your own website style.
