Date display in Events Calendar

  • You should be able to do this by changing the PHP date format in the HTML template. You can find the formatting tags by Googling for PHP Date() – just select the tags yu need and amend the template accordingly

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    I have been reading up on all of this and it looks like it should be a simple process of using something like the following:

    ec3_get_events(30, '', '', 'l j F');

    However this only throws errors up at me.

    My next tack is to change the default settings, but for the life of me, I cannot find them within the Event Calendar plugin code.

    Do you or anyone else out there have any idea where it needs to be changed?

    Please help – I do not have much hair left to pull out now!

    Hey JamesICT. Apologies for the delay in getting you a response here; things slowed down for the holidays and are just picking up again now on our end.

    This should be controllable via your overall WP settings, as defined in Settings -> General. What you set there should take effect on the calendar as well. Are you finding this not to be the case?


    I have my date format set at l, F j, Y in WordPress, but no, this format is not displaying in Events.

    Hey James. Thanks for the follow-up. That’s odd; it is working for me on the 2.0.11 code. Here’s what I’ve configured as my general WP settings – http://d.pr/i/eB1h.

    And this is what displays on the /events page: http://d.pr/i/N2ZT.

    Have I done something different than you, or am I testing this wrong? Let me know. Assuming I’ve got this right…are you in a position where you can test deactivation of other plugins (and the theme, if necessary) to test for a conflict?


    I will try and find a suitable time-slot to deactivate the other plugins and see if that works.

    I gather that this code ec3_get_events(30); is correct?

    Thanks for your help on this – it is much appreciated.

    James: are you not using tribe_get_events for your site?
