Support » Plugins » The Events Calendar event metadata displays

  • Resolved kgagne


    Thanks for the neat plugin! In addition to recurring events and iCal support, I have two requests:

    1) When events appear in the blog’s main index, the event metadata is not displayed. Is there a way to integrate this information? Without it, the blog post appears rather useless, as it does not show when and where the event is; visitors may not know to click on the blog’s headline to read its individual listing and get that data.

    2) When no street address is provided but city/state/zip are, I would like that information to be displayed. Right now I’m working around this by entering a single space into the “Address” field.

    Also, when a venue name has an apostrophe, the plugin sometimes drops it and everything after it — so “Joker’s Bar and Lounge” becomes “Joker”, for example.

  • I was able to address concern #1 by modifying my index.php to have some of the same code as the plugin’s list.php inside an if block. It doesn’t put the event’s metadata into the RSS feed, though.

    I just realized that the plugin was displaying the event’s city and country but not state. Various references in list.php and single.php to the_event_region had to be changed to the_event_state.

    In v1.6, lines 139 and 141 of template-tags.php, the_event_region must be changed to the_event_state. (I have “Default Country for Events” set to “United States” so I’m not sure why this is happening.)
