Events Manager
[resolved] I found this plugin too late . How to use with pre existing custom post types (5 posts)

    Hi, I spent weeks designing my own template pages for my custom post types "Events" and "Venue".

    Just when I finished them, I found this plugin. :( . It does all I planned my website to do and much more!!!.

    Seeing as my preexisting custom post type is already called 'Events' Is there a way for me to use the template designs for the 'Events' custom post type created by this plugin?

    I really do not want to start the designs from scratch again!

    Okay . I read a bit of the documentation. I saw this statement

    Should you wish, you could also create a single-event.php or single-location.php file in your theme and override this feature completely with PHP.

    Since Single-events have already been created for my preexisitng custom post type with the same name, does that mean that upon activation of this plugin it will use the one already made. But I just need to add in the template tags to control where the maps, timing etc are showed?.

    Sorry the documentation is not that clear to me, that is why I am asking on this site. I can only understand if i see examples of how to place the different components in php.

    For example, If I wanted to move the map on a post. How would I do so?

    Single-events -> please see this previous thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/events-manager-eventslocation-pages-cant-get-sidebar?replies=21

    For example, If I wanted to move the map on a post. How would I do so?

    try Settings > Formatting > Events > Default single event format then move placeholder #_MAP anywhere.

    yes, that template file overrides everything we would do, it takes precedence. Depending on how you set up your template, it should work , but if you're using specific custom fields to store/retrieve info, you'd need to use ours instead.
