Support » Plugin: Events Manager » The Events Manager and headway

  • Resolved roamingk


    Hi, I am successfully using headway and the events manager on my site.

    Headway comes with a panel for SEO, to allow me to add the meta title and description on any custom post type, by adding the attribute “headway-seo”. Once I add this it can be seen on the page when I make a new custom post.

    I am wondering how do I enable this field to the events back end, so that when I want to add an event, the SEO options come up on this page also or have it appear under “screen options”…. either is fine.

    you need to add custom post type ‘event’ in your “headway-seo”.

    wp plugin ‘WordPress SEO’ works fine on EM

    in theory it should work automatically , but you may want to ask headway whether their SEO function works with custom post types, or how to activate our CPTs to work with their plugin.

    It works in custom post types…

    It just does not appear when I go to “add an event”.

    angelo_nwl .. I don’t want to add a plugin as the funcionality is already built into headway… so I am not sure what you mean when you say

    “add custom post type ‘event’ in your “headway-seo”.”

    Could you clarify?

    I think was angelo_nwl meant was if there’s an option to add the name of a custom post type to Headway SEO panel, you could add ‘event’.

    Ok Headway say the following:

    Showing Headway SEO Options for Custom Posts

    If you add custom post types by editing the functions.php file and you want the Headway SEO meta box to appear when editing your custom posts, add “headway-seo” to the supported parameters:

    ‘supports’ => array( ‘title’, ‘editor’, ‘author’, ‘thumbnail’, ‘excerpt’, ‘comments’, ‘headway-seo’)

    I get this, but where do I put this in for the “Events Manager”.


    Ok I added the following to the functions file of headway in a child theme.

    add_action('init', 'my_custom_init');
    function my_custom_init() {
       add_post_type_support( 'event', 'headway-seo' );

    This loads the SEO panel when I am adding an event using the event manager now.

    Just so people have an answer.
