UniTimetable is a WordPress plugin for presenting timetables of an educational institute. It includes teachers, classrooms, subjects (modules) and student groups, which are all combined to define lectures. The lectures can be scheduled at some time point during a semester. Out of schedule events and holidays are also supported.
After providing the plugin with data, shortcodes provided generate beautiful calendars with all or selected part of the entered data.
UniTimetable was designed by Fotis Kokkoras and Antonis Roussos and implemented by Antonis Roussos for the fulfillment of his BSc Thesis in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, at TEI of Thessaly, Greece.

How to use the Shortcodes:
The general purpose shortcode is
[utt_calendar] and should be better placed in a page (or post) with substantial width (the calendar is responsive though and fits everywhere). The resulting calendar includes two filter drop-down lists for the end-user to select individual calendars for any of the semester, classroom, or teacher.
In case that a fixed calendar is required (without drop down filters), parameters can be added to precisely define the content to be displayed. Three parameters are supported: classroom, teacher and semester. Here are some examples:
[utt_calendar classroom=1]will display the schedule of classroom with ID=1.
[utt_calendar classroom=1,2,3]will display the schedule of classrooms with IDs 1, 2 and 3.
[utt_calendar teacher = 12]will display the lecturing program of teacher with ID 12.
[utt_calendar semester = 2]will display the lecturing program of the semester with ID 2.
Note: You can locate the IDs required in the corresponding forms in the UnitimeTable admin page. Comma separated IDs are supported in all cases.
