The Events Calendar
[resolved] Excerpt View For Events List Page (6 posts)

    Is there a way to show the the "Events" on the "Events List" page in an excerpt view? I am using the thesis theme with this plug-in.

    Here is how they are coming in on my page now: http://cartertilman.com/rac-admin/events/upcoming

    This is how I would like them to come in: http://cartertilman.com/rac-admin/jobs

    The second link is using a custom post type I made. Then under the "Thesis" --> "Design Options" --> "Display Options" and under "Posts" and "Archives" I selected the option of, "Display Post Excerpts." When I did this it changed the look for all of my post pages except for the "Events List" page. I am not sure why that is the case? If anyone could give some insight that would be great.
    Thanks,
    Carter

    Hey Carter,

    The plugin should be showing excerpts by default but you may not actually have an excerpt input for your events so you'll either need to manually create event excerpts one by one or use something like this to auto generate excerpts: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/auto-excerpt-everywhere/

    I hope that helps!

    Jonah,
    I tried inserting a manual excerpt but didn't have luck with that showing up. When I downloaded the plug-in you recommended that worked awesome, thanks for the help.

    Dear Jonah,

    I have the same problem, unfortunately it does not work..with this exerpt plugin!
    I have the premium maya theme (by theme forest) and wanted to display on the overview event page only a few text... the rest of text or whole text should appear on the single event page, when I click on it...
    but there arise only the same full content text as before... I can not solve this problem via CSS Style sheet, because I have no experience within... but would it be possible to leave the single events page?!?! I wont need it, because all of the information is in event list ?!?!?
    any idea, thanks and greetings from austria!

    Hi Suher,

    You could also try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-excerpt/ but with this you'll actually need to modify the template files to include the advanced excerpt template tag.

    Good luck!
