The crashing issue is solved, I deleted the existing event post and now the Event Posts doesn’t crash anymore. I previously had Fatal Error problems so I had to manually upload EE via FTP so on that aspect I’m am now OK.
Regarding using page-event_list.php as its template, I can’t seem to get around this point. How to I specifically do this? I read the, wordpress manual to create templatesbut I don’t see how to set this up. Do you have a step by step guide?
