    a tip for all user of event manager + acf:
    you can use all fields of acf as #_ATT{fieldname from acf} in the event_list of event manager in your template...

    a) make a field group
    b) make a field ex. Subheadline (fiedname: subheadline)
    c) use it in post type: event
    d) call it in template ex. #_ATT{subheadline}

    <?php echo EM_Events::output(array('order'=>ASC,'order'=>ASC,'format'=>

  2. <p>#_ATT{subheadline}</p>
  3. ')); ?>

    Did you not find that when you save a post the content in the ACF fields gets overridden by the blank content in the event manager attribute field?

    Yes! That's exactly what we've found. The whole 'deprecated attributes' set of values are a real irritation. They clash horribly with ACFs.

    I hacked the EM code to hide them all (no inputs -> nothing posted!) but now have to remember to do this after all updates of EM. Which has wrong-footed me once already.

    See my post here:

    And hoping that newcomdd_gmbh is still following this thread, please log back in and put some code tags round your code!
