[resolved] Events Manager: Change Widget's Default List Item Format (5 posts)

    I cannot seem to find the setting that will change the Events Widget Default List Item Format from:
    #_LINKEDNAME<ul><li>#j #M #y</li><li>#_TOWN</li></ul>
    #_LINKEDNAME<ul><li>#M #j, #Y</li><li>#_TOWN</li></ul>
    Meaning that every time I drag the widget into a sidebar, I don't want to have to change the date format. I've changed my date format everywhere I can, but no where do I see the string above in the settings, nor any reference to the widget defaults.

    How can this change be made? I can't tell my client that they will have to modify that code every time they drag the widget into their sidebar.

    one way to do it is modify php file at events-manager/widget/em-events.php at around line 12

    *currently not update safe.

    Yes, I found the appropriate line in the plugin code. Of course, I really don't want to modify that file.

    I attempted to override the code in my functions.php by copying the entire class from the plugin file, changing its name, and removing the original action.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get it all to work. I may try again when I get some other work done on this project, though it is an awful lot of work to change one line of code.

    I don't understand why this string isn't editable in the Formats tab of the plugin settings page. Every other possible display string is editable from there.

    If this becomes too big a fuss, the client may just have to either learn how to change it in the widget or live with the European date format in the widget.

    Sounds like a sensible suggestion to me to have this string among the Formats/Layouts settings.

    I'd change it to #_EVENTDATES, which you can already modify in the settings, will that do?
