[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Any "Events" views break theme (6 posts)

    I'm having some trouble getting this to work on the Builder theme (by iThemes).

    http://hamptonroadsbusinessnetwork.com

    In looking at the source code, I can see that all of my <head> info is intact, but it's missing the initial layout framework - it skips everything from the <body> tag, through the navigation, all the way until hit gets to the calendar code.

    </head>
    
    	<div id="tec-content" class="grid">
    		<div id='tec-events-calendar-header' class="clearfix">
    			<h2 class="tec-cal-title">Calendar of Events</h2>

    Also tested it on another test site that uses a Builder theme and got the same problem. Tested other premium themes with no problem.

    Hey valerama,

    I'm not sure what is causing this issue. The Dev Team will return from vacation in one week. I'm sure they will provide assistance when they return. In the meantime, does anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    - Noah

    Our default templates depend on calls for header.php and footer.php. So if your theme doesn't naturally call those, you will loose the basic platform code.

    I'm using a child theme. The "parent" has the header.php and footer.php files. Could that be it? My first foray into child themes.

    This is the Builder theme by iThemes. I've got a support request at their end too, because I *really* want to use this plugin.

    Are you familiar enough with code to look at it and tell me where their menu code is getting called? I'd guess it is in header.php. As for the child theme thing, its an interesting question. I wonder if it might be somehow mucking with the rewrite rules.

    Just a note, Shane, I'm using Thematic, which is a build of wp-framework theme. Thematic uses 'Child Themes' as well. In your instructions for customizing certain files when they break within themes (placing a directory called 'events' in the theme folder, with gridview.php, list.php, etc in it), this only works if those files are placed in Thematic's directory, not the child theme's directory. So basically those files to be edited while wind up being generic for any child themes I create using Thematic's framework. Worth looking into. I'll start a new thread for Thematic support.
