I’m trying to add the venue title to my Widget output but can’t seem to get the widget.php to pull in the correct information, any advice?

The widget doesn’t pull any of the venue information in from the database if your using the venue manager so you’ll have a little more work to do.

You need to alter the SQL query to include the venue table and the venue relationship table, then within the for each loop assign a venue_name variable and use that within the widget as you would anything else.

Look into event_list.php and it’ll help you along.

I’ve just had a quick look at this.

The SQL function starts from line 49 in widget.php

I’ve added the Venue database calls into the SQL query.

Replace the if statment from lin 49 down to the close } for the ‘else’ not sure on line number as I’ve already alter it.

After that look at line 91 onwards… copy line 93 (should be about the event name)

Paste it below on line 94 and change all instances event_name to venue_name on that line.

then you can just use $event->venue_name for example echo $event->venue_name

Only had a quick look but that should work. Let me know if you have problems. Don’t forget to copy widget.php uploads/event-espresso/templates.

I can’t post code so to explain > is a greater than sign.

As in, shift and period (full stop) on most qwerty keyboards.
