Just wondering why on the individual calendar pages that the columns are switched. That is on a standard blog page the sidebar column is on the left, but this case it is on the right. Events Calendar is clearly using the same template as for posts but in this case the column order is switched which throws off the layout somewhat.
Hi again TSemmes. Thanks for the note here as well; not sure I understand the issue here, though. Can you elaborate? When I’m using Twenty Eleven and boot up my site, regardless of whether I’m viewing an event or a regular blog post, the sidebar column is on the right.
Have I misunderstood your request here? If so, let me know and I’ll update my response to make it more meaningful.
The sidebar is on the right for me too. But my template calls for it to be on the left. I am using a custom theme that allows you to select which side,you want the sidebar on. I selected left. But Event Calendar overrides that and places it on the right.
Ah, gotcha. I understand now…thanks for elaborating. There should be a way to work around that, or at least to get the plugin to respect the theme’s settings on this issue. That being said this is a bit outside my technical area of expertise, so I’ve asked Jonah from our team – far more dev-minded than myself – to take a look and try to point you in the right direction. Stay tuned and thanks for your support so far.
The plugin either uses it’s own template (ecp-page-tempalte.php or ecp-single-template.php) if you have the Default Events Template selected in Events > Settings or it will use your theme’s page.php template if you have selected Default Page Template or other page template in your theme…
So, if you’re using our templates for event pages, it’s likely there’s some markup that’s not being include necessary for your theme’s layout. It could be a similar situation even if you are using the Default Page Template or other page template. Bottom line is you need to take a look at the markup and CSS applied on non-plugin pages and compare with that on plugin pages (calendar, single events, etc.) and see what’s missing.
Can you provide a link to your website so I can take a quick look? What template do you have selected from the above options?
Hi again TSemmes. Just wanted to follow-up on this, based on Jonah’s last response. Was that helpful? Do you need anything else from us here? Please let me know if so, or if this is ready to close out. Cheers!
Checking on once more here before I mark this RESOLVED. TSemmes, please let us know what else we can do here.
Looks like we’re all set here since there still hasn’t been any action in a week. TSemmes, should you happen to see this and if you disagree…let me know. Otherwise going to assume you got this sorted.
Sorry, I was out of town for a few weeks and did not have access to the internet. I will take a look at this and get back to you if I have any further questions. Thank you for helping out her.
Glad to be of service. Thanks for the update, and please let us know what else you need in the future.
I am taking a look at this now and will compare the markup for a Event plugin page and a non-plugin page.
In the meantime if you want to take a look at http://www.semmesco.com. The Calendar is under Resources > Upcoming Events.
I tried changing the Template from Default Events Template to Default Page Template. This actually makes the single page listing look fine. But it changes the Event Calendar page to two column. I would like to keep that full page width.
So what setting do you have it on now?
Ok, what I would suggest doing is take a look at your themes page.php file and try to migrate over as much of the markup as possible to the ecp-single-template.php file in /wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/views/ecp-single-template.php (make a copy and place in an ‘events’ folder in your theme before making any changes). That way the single view template will get all your theme specific code.
I hope that helps!
Took a while to figure out what was what but it seems to work now. Thank you.
