Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Change format of short code [events_list_grouped]

  • Resolved fchang



    Used the shortcode [events_list_grouped] to group my events by day in a sidebar widget. However, I can’t seem to be able to find where I can change the format of the ‘group’ heading? Do I have to code some kind of template? If so, how? Right now, it seems to be using the default <h2> to format the group heading.

  • Hiya,

    Could you paste a link to your site please? I’m wondering where that Heading appears.

    It’s not the widget title is it?


    Just found it. It is hard coded in the plugin’s file: em_template_tags.php. Wish they can change it to pull in a css class instead so we can have scripts to override its formatting. So I guess I’ll have to update that file on every plugin update.

    If you mean the dates, you should be able use this:

    .textwidget h6 {
    /* something here */

    did you use the date_format attribute?

    see the shortcode docs –

    Thank you all for the quick reply,

    caimin_nwl, that would work for all textwidget using <h6> instead of a custom css style. I’ve updated em_template_tags.php so it spits out <h6> which I don’t use on the site (finger crossed). Ideally, it should probably spit out <p class=’em_grouped_header’>… </p> and have the class defined in the css or as a plug-in option.

    Marcus, I knew that you can change the date_format to display it differently (text wise), but could you re-style the grouped header into different fonts/size? The code seems to point to a hard coded style of <h2> for all group headers.

    i’ve noted that down for future improvements, ideally you should be able to change that too.

    currently there’s no easy way to do that code-wise, so you’d need to use CSS to style those headers (e.g. wrap the grouped events in a custom div class)
