Support » Plugin: Events Manager » [Plugin: Events Manager] event search form button appears as field

  • Resolved LynnW


    I’m using only the text entry field for the event search, no other parameters.
    Whatever I enter for the text search label appears in both the text field and the “button.” The thing I can’t figure out is that the “button” looks like a plain text entry field. It doesn’t look like the button on your demo site, or have any other type of clickable indication. I’m using thesis 1.8 theme; would that be a problem?
    How do I get the button to look like something to click? And can each field have a different text label?

    Thank you. I like this plugin a lot, so many settings, much is easy & clear.

  • Hi,

    you can either change your text or button background e.g. remove – input, textarea { background: #EEE; } in your theme style.css

    So, with that hint (which applies to both the entry field and the submit button instead of one or the other), I’ve been able to override the CSS in my theme’s custom.css (which overrides all css) file for the whole form using these class selectors:
    .em-events-search-text for the search term entry field
    .em-events-search-submit for the button

    BUT, when I change the “text search label” in the EM settings, it still puts whatever I type in into BOTH the text entry and the button labels. Any clues for that? Thanks, again.


    you change that in the template file @ templates/events-search.php line 11&12 and for the search button its line 137

    Using Template Files

    Thanks for replying… So, when I change a template, that means I have to remember to make that change in the template every time I upgrade the plugin, is that correct?

    no, because since you put the template files inside your theme it will be deleted or replace by EM.

    sorry, I mean it will NOT be deleted or replaced by EM.
