All-in-One Event Calendar
[resolved] Can't find panel to insert featured image (17 posts)

    Would someone know if I can insert a featured image for each event? I thought this was available in previous versions but I cannot locate such function when I add a new event.

    I'm using All-In-One Event Calendar version 1.2.4.

    Thanks!

    Wow, I have spent the morning asking this same question and trying to find an answer. I feel like I used to be able to do it. For our Christmas Eve event we have one, but now I can't figure it out for the life of me. Did I forget? Or, did something change?

    Problem solved!

    1. Open class-ai1ec-app-helper.php
    2. Find 'support for custom post type' section
    3. add 'thumbnail' at the end of the argument, so it reads:

    $supports = array( 'title', 'editor', 'comments', 'thumbnail' );

    4. Replace the file of the same name in your web hosting site.

    Good luck!

    By the way, you also need to edit your theme's function.php:

    Replace:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    with the following:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post', 'ai1ec_event' ) );

    Thanks. I will try this as soon as I have some time. I'll let you know when the issue is resolved. I really appreciate your time!

    Kawaii_mihoko,

    This did not give me the desired result. It allowed for me to change header images on each of my posts (which is really cool) but, did not give me an option to add a header image to events. Or, maybe, I just don't know where to add the event headers? You can see our church service page has a giant blank spot. While, the link I posed above has a header image. Any other thoughts?

    Another update: this code added the ability to add headers to individual posts but, it didn't allow for addition of headers to events. Also, it seemingly took away the ability to add header images to pages. Anyone else have ideas?

    Sorry, chadharms, I guess we were needing slightly different applications, and unfortunately, I don't know the answer to your question. If you ever found the solution, would you mind to share it? I think this layout looks better than the 'featured image' showing between event details, and I would like to apply it to my site. Much thanks!!!

    kawaii_mihoko, I will definitely give you an update if we get this problem resolved. It is frustrating that we were able to do it once and are now having trouble. It may have something to do with us switching servers. Thanks again for your help.

    If anyone can possibly help me solve this I would be so so so so grateful! I was able to add a header when I first downloaded the plugin and somehow lost that ability. What am I missing?

    @chadharms
    Do you need to set an image as featured image in an event or there is something else needed?

    Yes. We want to set a featured image in an event. But, there is "featured image" option as there is on are other pages/posts. When we first installed this plugin it was there and somewhere/somehow it disappeared. You Christmas Eve service that had the header above. But, now we can only make it look like this - Sunday Gathering. Can you help me?

    Doesn't it work if you follow kawaii_mihoko's way?

    I can confirm we will have featured image enabled in v1.5

    I just emailed our lead developer, but I'm pretty sure we tried this and it didn't produce the desired affect. Instead, it took away our ability to add featured images on other posts. We undid this and functionality was restored to posts.

    Let's see what your lead developer will say and then we can decide how to proceed with finding the solution for you.

    Here is what our lead developer said, "Yeah we tried that and it added thumbnail support to the entire site but not to the calendars..."

    When will v1.5 be available?
