[resolved] Add Image Thumbnails to Calendar View (4 posts)

    Hey all. I'm looking for a way to customize the calendar so that I can show an image thumbnail on the date. I don't suppose it would be too difficult, but I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing when dealing with PHP. CSS and HTML I can do, but otherwise I am stumped and lost.

    Calendar in question is located here: http://mydesignandwine.com/wordpress/events/

    I've been struggling to find a solution for this all over. There aren't many good plugins that integrate a calendar with booking, at least in a way that makes sense and looks good. This plugin seems to be the answer, but customizing it is a bit outside of my scope of knowledge.

    If someone can give me some pointers as to what exactly I'm supposed to do, it'd be great. I've looked all over, but a lot of the instructions sound like greek to me. B/

    Thanks all, looking forward to your help!

    A good place to start is the file /events-manager/templates/templates/calendar-full.php

    if you just want to show an image for each event, consider modifying your calendar formats in Events > Settings > Formats/Layouts

    ultranima, I'm trying to do the exact same thing. I saw Marcus' response and tried setting up using #_EVENTIMAGE but I'm just getting the URL back in the full calendar and not the images showing in the calendar. I saw you got it working on yours. What changes did you make to either the settings or the calendar-full.php that got it to work?

    We actually ended up using Event Espresso Pro for Design and Wine. I'm using the Events Calendar on another website we're hosting right now, and so far the only workaround I've been able to figure out is putting an img ( <img src="yourimagehere.jpg"> )tag in the title on the event. If you insert a thumbnail in there, it shows up on the calendar block, but it's not exactly graceful to say the least...

    I'm still trying to find a solution, but I have absolutely no PHP knowledge. Baby steps, I guess.

    Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer meleary... Good luck on your quest for knowledge!
