Displaying Tooltip Information Under Calendar Event

Hey EE4 Staff,

I was wondering if there was a way to put the contents (tooltip) of the calendar event underneath the calendar event, maybe with ACF as an additional field?

So it would look like this:

Hi there,

The above doesn’t look like a default EE output, it’s not the EE4 Calendar Add-on output which I’m assuming you are referring to with ‘tooltip’?

Can you link us to the page you want to add some details to so we can take a look? It sounds like you’ll need custom development either way but we can advise better once we’ve seen the page itself.

Hey Tony, I just have that image. It’s not part of EE4, but I was wondering if I could manipulate the template in some way to do it, like take the EE4 tooltip (which is stored somewhere) and modify the template to display it so it shows beneath the calendar photo instead of as a dragover tooltip.

The section that you are referring to as the ‘tooltip’ being this? –

The looks like it would just be the_excerpt for the event post, so you’d have:


If that’s the case, you don’t need to modify any sections of EE to pull in that details, if your in the loop you can just use the_exceprt()

If you are looking for something that outputs the events in a similar way to your image, we don’t have anything that matches that output. The closest would be the EE4 Grid View Template which you could modify to load a template closer to what you have in the image.

Thanks Tony, I’ll play around with the_excerpt() while in the loop and see if I can get it to work for the calendar.
