Bug Report: Theme custom templates NOT available in Settings > Template > Events Template.
Let me start by saying: I will purchase a single license of ECP if you are willing to help me get it to work with my Thesis 2.0 theme.
Here’s my issue/s: (links are to my staging/testing site which I use for development)
After installing The Events Calendar and visiting the calendar url, no content displayed whatsoever: sustainableworldmarket.com/events
I thought maybe this was because I had not created any events yet. So I created an event category (http://sustainableworldmarket.com/events/category/mixology-events-and-competitions/) and then created an event (http://sustainableworldmarket.com/event/beer-bourbon-bbq-festival/).
The single event page only displayed the title and standard content of the event. The event category page displayed nothing (but did have the meta-title/description I had assigned).
I created a new custom template using the Thesis 2.0.2 template builder, and then copied the Events Calendar single.php and hooked it into my new custom template, using a function in my theme’s custom.php file. I then navigated back to my event edit screen in wordpress and chose the new template from the drop-down select menu and re-saved. So now the single event page displays properly! Yay!
I think I can follow the same process for the Events Category Archive pages, by building another custom template and applying it to each of my Event Categories.
BUT, none of my custom templates are available to choose from for the calendar page (Settings > Template > Events Template[drop-down]). And since the /events page is not listed in my WordPress Pages, I don’t know how I’ll be able to get the calendar to display.
I know just enough to know that this is a issue of incompatibility with Thesis 2.0. For some reason Thesis is not properly retrieving your plugin’s php page templates. And for some reason, your plugin is not recognizing Thesis’ custom templates. But I’m not sure how to remedy this.
Obviously I had some success with just using your templates as modules and manually plugging them into my theme through a hook. But Since I’d like to use the built-in url for my calendar page, and I can’t figure out how to get the calendar templates to display on that page, I’m at a loss!
As I said above, I’d be more than happy to purchase the single license for ECP, if you think there is a way to get it to play nice with Thesis 2.0. I’d really prefer to use ECP over all-in-one-calendar-events, cuz I trust your product way more.
Let me know,
