[resolved] custom events page without echoing the_content() (6 posts)

    I want to make a custom event template without echoing the_content(); / CONTENTS shortcode.

    I have this bit of code on my page.php
    if ( is_page('events') ){ include( TEMPLATEPATH .'/includes/events.php' );

    and on my includes/events.php file this is my code

    <div class="featured-event clearfix">
    	      <h1>Featured event</h1>
          		    $args = array('order' => 'DESC','limit' => 1,'category' =>'12','scope'=>'future, past');
                    $EM_Events = EM_Events::get($args);
                    foreach ( $EM_Events as $EM_Event):
            <div class="featured-image"><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_EVENTIMAGE'); ?></div>
                    <h4><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_EVENTDATES'); ?></h4>
                    <h4><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_EVENTTIMES'); ?></h4>
          			<h4><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_LOCATIONADDRESS'); ?></h4>
                    <h4><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_ATT{Sign up}{No sign up required|Sign up required}'); ?></h4>
                    <h4><?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_ATT{Cost}{FREE}'); ?></h4>
                    <?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_EVENTNOTES'); ?>
                <button><a href="<?php echo $EM_Event->output('#_EVENTURL'); ?>">Sign up</a></button>
                 <?php endforeach; ?>
    	</div> <!-- end .featured-event -->
        <?php if (class_exists('EM_Events')) {
              echo EM_Events::output( array('order' => 'DESC','scope'=>'past, future','pagination'=>1,'limit'=>'6') );
        } ?>

    I also have a single-event.php file with this bit of code

    <?php get_header();?>
    <section class="main clearfix">
           	<div class="event-detailed clearfix">
       	        <?php global $EM_Event;
                        echo $EM_Event->output_single();
    <?php get_footer();?>

    I formatted the Default event list format and Single Event Page in WP Events Manager Admin settings and have set Display events as - Posts.

    If I don't put a post loop on my page.php file then the permalink is broken for my-booking, location, categories, tags sub pages and I also want to show Events Manager Search function.
    e.g. no

    <?php if ( have_posts() ) while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    		<?php the_content(); ?>

    Can I not use the shortcode CONTENTS and make a custom events page

    I've read through these documentations but I find them difficult to understand and not sure if it is doing what I want to achieve.

    haven't tested this one myself, but I'm guessing this'd work:


    I created this one for a category page, which I think may work better if ported to work - http://pastebin.com/MSe9SvBq - by that i mean use get_queried_object() and pass that onto em_get_event() directly to get an EM_Event object.

    cool thanks for the replies guys.

    Sorry but I worded my question really bad. What I should've said is how to fix broken urls for the following pages... my-bookings, locations, categories, tags

    I have a custom WordPress theme and if I don't put a post loop in page.php e.g.

    <?php if ( have_posts() ) while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    	<?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    then my-bookings, locations, categories, tags pages are blank. I thought since the the post is echoing the_content();. Maybe I could echo the content manually on page.php?

    I already have single-event.php</e> and it is displaying everything correctly but just can't get my-bookings page showing after clicking Manage my bookings link and Search functionality working.

    that's odd, but I'm guessing it's either something in your theme (most likely) or another plugin that's overriding our code because normally this works.
