  • Hi

    thank you very much for your answer. I will contact you that way.

    Yes, we have this problem now with several sites.

    @pioneer Web Design (@swansonphotos) – keeping users from making mistakes by taking away usability is at least debatable. In our case we have a web admin with no access rights to the servers (not even via FTP). He totally relied on the option to edit specific php files if necessary through the dashboard. Now we are forced to send in a change request to IT and wait until they find the time to make the changes – for every single change of code – even adding something like a tracking snippet!

    This step is bad design in my opinion. It enforces people to use even more plugins, more plugins are by far less stable and safe than making some changes to the code. 60-80% of the functionality, that lazy people cover with plugins can be done by very small changes to the PHP files – you just have to do some research and learning. The result will always be faster, more reliable (no plugins being discontinued) and fully under your own control. You can’t do this, though, if the company has a structure that does not grant every second employee access to the root servers. WP was great at allowing webdamins access to specific files only. I really don’t get the reason for taking this away and force people to rebuild it now by setting up FTP clients with restricted access rights.

    I don’t see why it should be more unlikely to break one’s WP site now, by uploading buggy code via FTP instead of making changes to the file within the browser. Upload a broken PHP file and your site will go white anyway.

    Switch to another plugin or use <pre> Tags. This plugin is a dead horse. I had the same issues with it recently.

    I would love this, too. I tried several category color plugins but event list introduced it’s own categories which are unaffected by other plugins.

    I haven’t found a way yet to make “CSS react to a category”…

    I doubt we can access individual categories with this output code from event list:

    <div class=”event-cat”>Conference, Fair, Meeting</div>
    .event-cat {
    font-size: 0.95em;
    color: #ffffff;
    background-color: #404040;
    border-radius: 3px;
    padding-left: 6px;
    padding-top: 3px;
    padding-right: 6px;
    padding-bottom: 3px;

    .event-title a {
    font-family: Tahoma;

    worked for me, but I doubt that this is good CSS usage.

    .event-title is a class for the div container that contains an h3 element and a nested a element (unless you make event-title unclickable with a parameter).

    It seems the intended use doesn’t include images at all. Currently images are placed within the event detail content without any layout. Tampering with the plugin code proved to be too difficult for me, I couldn’t make any sense out of it and find the place where the output html is defined.

    I can use it. What exactly is not working for you?

    Thank you, morten44, for sharing this.

    Has anyone found a way to do this with the shortcode in a page, too?

    I use [event-list initial_date=”upcoming” num_events=3 show_filterbar=false show_cat=true collapse_details=event_list_only details_length=256 show_location=false link_to_event=true] in my homepage (in page content – not in a sidebar or a widget). It works fine but I can’t find a way to let an event open in a popup or a different page…

    not sure what icons you are refering to. Do you mean the date tabs shown in the event list?

    You have to change it in the CSS. Try right-click on the specific element in Firefox or Chrome to investigate the code. You will find CSS definitons like this one:

    .event-list .start-date, .event-list .end-date {
    text-align: center;
    width: 3.2em;
    border-radius: 5px;
    background-color: rgb(230,230,230);

    Here you could change the background color of the light-gray start date block into another color. (you can simply change rgb colors into hex colors online).

    Sorry if I didn’t get your question right.
