Current ( Event-list-Templates not working for recurring events!

Trying to play around with event-list(-display).php templates version I was not able to group recurring events into 1 single block, showing different event-dates linking to the appropriate registration pages.

However, using templates from Josh on Github (see post from January 22) works almost fine (listing of event dates disappears clicking ‘Register Now’ instead of appearing …).

Can you give me a hint please, what are the correct templates for grouping recurring events in event lists?

Thank you

Wow! I have found some more event-list-templates for recurring events:

event-list.php [July 2 2012]
event-list-display.php [July 2 2012]

The readme.txt contained in this directory recommends to copy those files to

Result is:
Warning: preg_match() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /usr/www/users///wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1207.

Great, really!

Now we have 3 templates for recurrent-event-listing
1) /wp-content/plugins/eventespresso/templates/event-list(-display).php
2) /wp-content/plugins/espresso-recurring/recurring-event-templates/event-list(-display).php
3), and

I want to show recurruring events grouped, with an event-date-selection/booking-option, and a shopping cart-option both.

How to do that? I spent several hours to find a solution, but without success. And the documentation is ‘not very helpful’ (friendly speaking).

Hi Frank,

I am sorry for the confusion. The default event_list templates do not group recurring events together. The templates that are included with the REM plugin are out of date and do not work.

They’re are under development, so the github ones are going to be the most recent and recommended to use. When you use those, in their current state, you need to add a bit of CSS to your theme so that the events do not display before clicking the link:

.subpage_excerpt .date_picker{
    display: none;

That should acutually be done with JavaScript, and is on the list of improvements to be made.

Hi Josh,

thank you for statements. Discussed above Github-versions work fine with CSS-snippet.

However, the github-templates do not contain shopping cart feature, what I found really nice to have!

May be, you can give me some basic instructions how to add shopping cart feature to the github templates? Would be great!

Kind regards

Hi Frank,

You can compare the templates for REM to the default event-list templates (which have the add to cart links) and see how they add the Multi Event Registration cart links.
