[resolved] Event to ticker - How? (3 posts)

    I'm new to the themes business, but would like to add some functionality to a theme.

    Purchased the theme 'gameday' [1] and like it. I'm also using an event plugin, where I hold the information of a lot of games (different football leagues).

    The crux is, the events plugin uses an custom post type, the ticker from the theme only uses the standard WP post type and works with tags. This behaviour I found in all event plugins, so it is a general problem, not from the plugin.

    But I would like to show in the ticker the next 10-12 games from the event plugin. How I can get them there?

    I see two ways of implementation: copy the events from the events custom post type to an special standard post type with the needed tag for the ticker (and not show them in the blog) OR convince the theme ticker to read the custom post type.

    I'm not a PHP programmer, but can anyone lead me to the beginning of the thread, so I can find out, how to put the two things together?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Which plugin are you using?

    That theme is not supported in these forums but that plugin author may be able to assist you. Or not, you've got a theme integration question and they may not be able to assist you with that.

    If you can provide the event's plugin then I may be able to direct you to that plugin'd dedicated support sub-forum if it's in the WordPress repo.

    Thanks, Jan for the reply. So I'll try to get an answer from the theme author directly.

    Regards, Dirk
