[Plugin: The Events Calendar] Date stacking (8 posts)

    LOVE this plugin this is exactly what I have been looking for. I would like to edit something though. I'm showing events in a widget in a sidebar and the format the plugin is defaulting to is:

    Feb
    12
    Name of the Event
    More info

    I'd like to change around the format to something more along the lines of:

    Name of Event
    Feb 12 | More Info

    Can I set this somewhere or edit code somewhere easily to make this change? I'd like to list 5 events in the widget and that format that it is currently defaulting to is too many lines and returns. I'd rather keep each event to two lines if possible so I don't take up too much real estate in my column.

    good request. Currently there is a seperate view for the output of the widget called "events-list-load-display-widget.php". You can alter that file.

    I am going to add a ticket to our system requesting a contributor add a rewrite rule that allows you toadd a copy of the file to your template and have it override ours. It will help simplify the update process for new releases. I am doing a release tonight (final checks willing) so you should probably wait till i'm done.

    great. I think that will help make things look a lot tighter. I'll just wait for the update then. Thanks

    you still need to change the view in the plugin folder for now. We will add the rewrite rule in the next release.

    k. got it thanks. I did install the new version and the calendar doesn't seem to have any padding anymore. It used to breathe a little now its tight to the edges. Me? or something you guys changed?

    PS if you click on the home button there you can see the modification I did to display the events if you scroll down a little.
