[resolved] Adding "The excerpt" to sidebar widget? (5 posts)

    Is it possible to add the event excerpt to the sidebar widget? Without upgrading to pro, that is? I'm happy to pay for the upgrade eventually, but I want to get this thing working properly first...

    Hey nickaster. Thanks for the note here, and for your use of The Events Calendar. If I understand your issue correctly, might Jonah's suggestion in this thread (http://tri.be/support/forums/topic/custom-goodies-for-viewsevents-list-load-widget-display-php/) be of value? Let me know if not or if I'm misunderstood, so I can get you what you need.

    Hmm... possibly. Really, I just want to get the "excerpt" working. Right now there doesn't seem to be way to control what the excerpt of an event is. Is there?

    Hey Nick. At this point the widget doesn't come with the excerpt enabled out of the box, no...while this could likely be added with some customization this is sadly outside the scope of what I can provide support on here. But have you checked out the tutorial on how to fully customize widgets (http://tri.be/how-to-completely-customize-widgets/)? Might that point you in the right direction?

    Sorry I couldn't offer up more. If I've misunderstood what you're going for here, let me know and I'll adjust my response.

    Hey Nick...just wanted to check in on this, now that I'm going through and marking as many threads as I can as RESOLVED for organizational purposes. Did you need anything else here or are we set on this issue?
