    Hi guy,

    I try to create a WP Backery Grid to display upcoming events on my website.
    For that I have to insert the title of the event, the starting date ant the location.

    I try try to use the Meta keys from Events Manager to do so.
    When I try to insert the _event_start_date key, the date is display in a YYYY-MM-DD format. Which is weird because all the Date formats in my WordPress are in DD-MM-YYYY format.

    Also, the _location_town or _location_name keys are not working, and I really don’t understand why.

    Would be great if you had any inputs to help me.

    Thanks for your help,
    Cheers,

    Those are pulled directly on database, if you can use php code there then you can reformat output. Another method is convert the format using javascript or jquery.

    You could also try using the builtin placeholders of EM: http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation/placeholders/

    Hey @tim01

    Thanks for your answer.
    Unfortunately I didn’t solved my issue yet.

    1. Date format :
    I tried to modify the date format in the when.php file.
    Unfortunately it doesn’t change anything on the grid.
    Is it the good file to modify ?

    2. The location address
    I tried many meta key found in the phone file of the plugins. Some are working and some others not.
    I try to use the _location_town meta key but I don’t get any result.
    Is it the good one to use ?

    That would be great if you had any inputs.

    Thanks for your help
    Cheers

    with regards to date format, you can try under Events > Settings > Formatting > Date/Time > Date Picker Format
