    Is there a placeholder for group url and/or group avatars? I cannot find it. I want a better integration of groups for the events in the webfrontend.

    there isn't (currently, good idea)

    if you want to create your own and you can code, check out the tutorials - wp-events-plugin.com/tutorials/

    thanks for reply. I don't have enough experience with coding, to make my own solution. I saw this feature here: http://www.nycga.net/events/

    I think i have to ask them.

    awesome to see EM used for such a worthy cause (nice looking implementation as well!).

    we'll be adding more placeholders etc. in the coming weeks too, so keep an eye on our blog posts.

    speaking of placeholders:
    there is no placeholder for event owner, right? yet?? ;)

    yes, but it's called 'contact' placeholders. see the help page for those

    Hi Guys,

    I'm the developer who's implemented the Events Manager plugin on the nycga site. :)

    Marcus, we've messaged back and forth a few times, but I hadn't revealed the site I was working on because I wasn't sure of your politics. :) Glad to see you're a supporter!!! Thanks for posting our link on facebook.

    chraema, in order to display the group info on events, I passed the group ID to the buddypress function that will grab the group info, so like this:

    $event_group = groups_get_group( array( 'group_id' => $event->group_id ) );

    and then in the table:

    <?php if ($event->group_id > 0) : ?>
    <a href="<?php echo bp_get_group_permalink($event_group) ?>"><?php echo bp_core_fetch_avatar('object=group&item_id='.$event_group->id) ?><br/>
    <small><?php echo $event_group->name ?></small></a>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Hey Guys,

    This is specifically what I was looking to do, however being the laymen I am with regards to PHP, I'm having trouble discerning where to place the code about.. if you could elaborate on that, it would be super-helpful. Thank you
