Changing Front End Appearance of Upcoming Events Widget

Hello,

Currently I have a custom text widget that I added to the home page. Given a suggestion by someone at Event Espresso, I grabbed the code from the upcoming events widget, edited it, and added it in the text widget.

I would really like to change it so my edits will be pulled dynamically.

Here is my edited code:

<div class=”widget widget_ee-upcoming-events-widget” id=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-5″>
<ul class=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-ul”>
<li id=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-li-79″ class=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-li”>
<h4 class=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-title-h4″>Masters Club Golf Tournament</h4>
<div class=”ee-upcoming-events-widget-img-dv”>
2015_mc_golf
</div>
<ul id=”ee-event-datetimes-ul-4″ class=”ee-event-datetimes-ul”>
<li id=”ee-event-datetimes-li-3″ class=”ee-event-datetimes-li”><span class=”dashicons dashicons-calendar”></span>October 12, 2015<br/><span class=”dashicons dashicons-clock”></span>10:00am – 8:00pm<form id=”download-iCal-frm-3″ class=”download-iCal-frm” action=”https://www.sacrealtor.org/events?ee=download_ics_file&ics_id=3″ method=”post” ><input type=”submit” class=”ee-ical-sbmt” value=”” title=”Add to iCal Calendar”/></form>

<p style=”margin-top: .5em”>Fundraiser for the SAR Charitable Foundation, for the benefit of Christmas CanTree.</p>

</div>

I changed the links so they point to ../events/eventname instead of ../events/events/eventname. Is there any way to make the change in the code (maybe in my child theme) so this happens automatically?

thanks

Hi, this question looked familiar so I checked one of your prior emails. The issue here is that workaround is needed as you are working on a site in a subfolder installation which causes your single event page URLs to look like this:

example.com/events/events/my-october-event/

If the site is moved out of the subfolder, then the workaround will no longer be needed as there won’t be a duplicate events slug appearing.

Another idea that may work is using a plugin like Redirection to redirect links to those pages to a different page.

example.com/events/events/my-october-event/ –> example.com/my-october-event/

However, that would still require you to create redirects and doesn’t solve the cause of the duplicate events slug in the URLs.

Hi Lorenzo,

I also have it set up this way so that I can customize the individual event page. I want sidebars on these pages (or at least the option) and it didn’t seem that I could do that without manually changing things around. Am I understanding this correctly?

thanks

Hi, if you are needing sidebars on your single event pages, then that can be done by setting up templates in your child theme.

Is that what you are needing to do?

Yes which file would I need to edit?

Actually, nevermind. I need the workaround anyway so that I don’t have sponsors showing as separate events.

thanks

If not, could you please update it to resolved?

Thanks
