I’m trying to customize the event detail page on my site. I would like the details at the top.
I have a child theme installed which I can use to make the modifications. However I wanted to make sure I was editing the correct file before moving things around. I tried altering the order of the elements in the Arabaca folder, but none of the changes I make in any of those files affect the front end of my site. Caching is not on.
Also in reading through some of the other forums, the file structures indicated on the discussions don’t match what I have. For example, I don’t have a “template” folder directly inside the plug-in folder.
What am i doing wrong?
I’m on EE4.
It might be easier to add this function (https://gist.github.com/joshfeck/1151c89082ccb5c0b478) to a site specific plugin (http://eventespresso.com/wiki/create-site-specific-plugin-wordpress-site/).
The function moves the ticket selector below the description, effectively allowing the description at the top.
Hello again Christine,
As of Event Espresso 4.8.21, there is a custom display re-order option available in the WordPress dashboard.
Backup your WordPress and update your software
You can see the change log for Event Espresso 4 here:
Remove existing filters for adjusting the order
If you have used some of the suggested filters to adjust the order of your event elements, then you’ll want to first remove those from your website and they may have been added to your child theme’s functions.php file or a site specific plugin.
Set a custom order through the Templates screen
Afterwards, go to your WP dashboard (WP-admin) –> Event Espresso –> Events –> Templates. The Use Custom Display Order options in the Templates screen can be used to reorder the events elements on the single event page as well as the events listing page.
Again, be sure that any of the filters for adjusting the order have been removed from your site specific plugin or your child theme’s functions.php file before turning on the template reorder option. Otherwise, you may see duplicate content.
