Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Front End Templates Not Working with New Thesis 2.0

  • Resolved Colin


    Everything is working on the back end. Events custom post type is successfully created, and posts/events can be saved and published.

    However when choosing a template for the Calendar page, none of the Thesis templates are available to choose from.

    Front end is not working at all. Every events page (single, calendar grid, calendar list, calendar category archive, etc…) shows as blank page, but with the thesis skinning in place (header, sidebars, footer)

    demo link (my dev site): /events

    I was able to get a single event to show by creating a new custom template, and then hooking The Events Calendar single.php template into my template using a Thesis hook function and then choosing the template from the normal template picker drop-down that displays on ever post/page edit screen.

    I used this same method to get the calendar gridview to display on the front end, and it worked, but I had to create a dummy page to display it on, and of course all the embedded calendar related links all link to the wrong urls (the next and previous months links, the list view toggle link, etc.).

    There is clearly something about Thesis 2.0 that is preventing the front end templates from being recognized and displayed. But I’m not advanced enough to figure that out.

    I tried creating an ‘events’ directory, copying all the templates to the new folder and putting it in my “theme directory”. The problem with thesis 2.0 is that I’m not sure which is my theme directory. There are two or three thesis folders in different places that each hold crucial functions files that could each be considered my “theme directory”. At any rate, putting the ‘events’ folder in any of them didn’t work.

    I know Thesis 2.0 is new, but it’s pretty amazing, and it would be SO cool to get The Events Calendar to work with it!

    Thank you for any help.
