Is it possible to display the calendar on the event archive page above the loop? I’ve tried [ESPRESSO_CALENDAR] and ?php echo do_shortcode(‘[ESPRESSO_CALENDAR]’); ?> both and neither work on the archive page.

Hi there,

When you use the shortcode directly within the template file, EE can’t detect the usage of the shortcode within the content (it checks for EE shortcode usage so we only add our assets when they are actually needed) so you need to add a snippet of code to tell EE to loads the Calendar scripts.

Here’s an example:

You can add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:

Then change the is_front_page() function to is_post_type_archive(‘espresso_events’) which should load the assets on that output.
