Date to show in elementor

Hello, I am trying to get the date to show on a Elementor widget and I was told to add this to the fucntion but I am not sure how to query the date. \

add_filter( ‘uael_post_event_date’, function( $date, $post_id, $date_format ) {
$event_date = get_post_meta($post_id, ‘event_date’, true);
return $event_date;
}, 10, 3 );

I need to replace ‘event_date’ with somthing that will pull in the Event Expresso date.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi ShooMoe,

The easiest way to do this is by using our model system, which we have details on here:–Model-System

To give you a working example, something like this should do that you are requesting:

add_filter( 'uael_post_event_date', function( $date, $post_id, $date_format ) {
    $event = EEH_Event_View::get_event($post_id);
    if ($event instanceof EE_Event) {
        $datetime = $event->primary_datetime();
        if ($datetime instanceof EE_Datetime) {      
            return $datetime->get_i18n_datetime('DTT_EVT_start', $date_format);
    return $date;
}, 10, 3 );

Note – the above is untested.
