Hi Grant – the best starting point for customizations like this is our Themer’s Guide: http://tri.be/support/documentation/events-calendar-themers-guide/
Essentially though you would need to override and customize the widgets/list-widget.php file and drop in some code to display featured images.
Hi there, there must be an easier way just to add small images on the page list?
Please see the screen view on your site where it displays the images in the list – http://wordpress.org/plugins/the-events-calendar/screenshots/
Ive been on your website and looked at the help videos – I am trying to show featured images on the list. How do i add these images please?
I do apologize bigbrownbear, they should indeed be available in list view (and so I mistakenly assumed you were referring to our event list widget) …
Can you confirm that you have indeed assigned a featured image to each of the events in question?
Thanks for coming back to me. I cant find the button to attach a featured image… please can you send me a screen grab of exactly where i add the image or a link? I can get the list to work but no images appear
You should see a Featured Image meta box within the event editor, normally in the column of boxes on the right side of the screen. If you’re not seeing it though it may be that your theme does not support featured images – is that a possibility here? You could always check in with the theme author if you are unsure.
Im in Edit Event, and normally on the right it has featured image (its working on the normal pages ok) – but on the events section its not there. Is there a way to add it?
I’m not sure why that isn’t working for you. Ensure that Featured Images is checked in the Screen Options pulldown at the top of the editor screen – if that doesn’t help / it isn’t present then try switching to a default, unmodified theme such as Twenty Twelve and turning off all other plugins.
That’s a good way to test for possible conflicts.
It’s possible the theme you are using does not support featured images. If your able, in the theme directory open your functions.php file. If you dont see
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );add that line of code to the end of the file, save and you’ll be able to add featured images.
Barry, I fixed this for a friend of mine, you can have your plugin check to see if post-thumbnails are supported and if not, add support. This should fix any issues anyone has with the featured image box missing.
That’s true and is a valid point – however a related issue is when themes define support for a limited subset of post types and effectively exclude all others.
Again it’s possible we could add a check to catch that scenario, but then again we’d be in the territory of interfering with what might be conscious decisions about the presentation of the site which is, after all, the theme’s responsibility.
As ever we’re open to feedback and feature requests over at http://tribe.uservoice.com 🙂
