[resolved] Using #_ATT{} in Default event list format issue (17 posts)

    Hello
    I want to try and use some custom post info within the results I thought i might be able to use the

    #_ATT{}
    within the Default event list format, but it turns out doing this removes the ability to update the custom fields (which is an issue)

    The custom fields display correct, is there a solution to this ?

    If this can not be fixed i was hoping to do a custom loop to receive and perform the retrieve of events using the normal WordPress link but i am having issues ordering them by Future events the default view of the event page set in the plugin.. As if i could sort them i could make my own loop...

    Try pasting that in the attributes box in your General EM settings, first panel.

    a bit confused here... could you post a screenshot somewhere of your event form and the problem?

    Btw, re-reading, you can enable both attributes and custom fields together if you need to.

    Ok in a nutshell i have activated and filled in all the blanks to get the custom fields to show on the event list using your
    #_ATT{} like so #_ATT{wpcf-date} and it will show up and that part will work but what it does is freeze the custom fields and will not allow you to update them while the #_ATT{wpcf-date} are listed in the formatting section...

    sorry if I´m missing the obvious here, but I still don't get what you mean by

    but what it does is freeze the custom fields and will not allow you to update them while the #_ATT{wpcf-date} are listed in the formatting section

    Ok you I have made a custom field on the events posts, i have made one called wpcf-date when i add the code you describe to show this value within a listing within the events it will show the content fine. But then that custom field can not have its content changed at all when you change and update the content it will revert to the previous content.

    Until the code to add it to the event system is removed...

    i think i get it now. a screenshot of your admin area where the values aren´t changing may help, but that´s not normal so I'd suggest trying to save the values with other plugins disabled to see if that helps.

    A screen shot would not show much really, but here is a link to one...http://ScrnSht.com/yjtcrh

    I have tried it on a fresh install of wordpress with no content and default theme and no other plugins except Event Manager still the same issue..

    are you using Plugin Types - Complete Solution for Custom Fields and Types ?

    you can go to Types > Custom Fields > Choose one and Edit > Where to display this group > Post Types: click edit and check Events/Recurring Events; then if add/edit events a metabox will show that will let you add/update custom fields values that you created on types plugin.

    Hi aglonwl i tried this with and without types plugin still the same issue i am afraid by adding the custom field to the formatting section it renders the custom fields whether they are the basic wordpress version or any fancy plugin version broken and not allowing the content to be updated..

    i'd say this looks like a plugin conflict. have you tried disabling custom post fields and just enabling our attrbibutes in the Events > settings > General > General Options panel?

    I have installed Events plugin on a fresh install with no other plugins installed and still the same issue and used it with the default themes..

    The attributes do not allow for visual editor input to allow for formatting content with HTML when the client doesn't know it..

    But you're using the usual WP custom fields, if you use our attributes meta box they'll only be able to enter those values - http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation/event-attributes/

    Yes but the custom fields can have visual editors added to them your attributes can not...

    I have got a work around by getting the events ID and then doing my own loop which then means the custom fields work 100%, I just thought as the plugin is supposed to support them and so far i can not get it to work might be a solution.

    Does the custom fields work for you using the #_ATT{} in the formating area ?
