Hello,
How do i call the event calendar in a theme template? The do_shortcode will not load the calendar. I really need to call the calendar outside a post content.
Thanksyou

Hi Lorenzo,
I did paste the global and the filter but with no success.
The CSS files will not load.

<?php  
global $is_espresso_calendar;
$is_espresso_calendar = TRUE;
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', array('EED_Espresso_Calendar', 'calendar_scripts'));
add_filter('FHEE_load_qtip', '__return_true' );
echo do_shortcode('[ESPRESSO_CALENDAR show_expired=false]');
?>

Hi Talmor,

Adding the following before your do_shortcode should load the correct files:

wp_enqueue_style(‘fullcalendar’);
wp_enqueue_style(‘espresso_calendar’);

$is_espresso_calendar = TRUE;
wp_enqueue_style('fullcalendar');						wp_enqueue_style('espresso_calendar');						add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', array('EED_Espresso_Calendar', 'calendar_scripts'));								add_filter('FHEE_load_qtip', '__return_true' );

If you load the page with Chrome Dev Tools open, do you see any errors within Console?

No don’t get errors. It seems impossible to load the calendar without using the shortcode in the content. Tried several things. The only way to load the calendar is using the shortcode in the content AND call with the do_shortcode in the template for a specific place on the page. Not ideal

Hi there,

May I ask which theme you’re using, which template you are adding the code to, and where in the template you added the code? If you can post the contents of the template file in a pastebin or gist, then like here, we can take a closer look.

Hi Josh,
It’s the cyberchips responsive mobile theme with some custom code.

But i’ve tried the same code in the latest twentyfourteen theme with only the event espresso plugins active and still nothing happens.

Tried it in and outside of the loop and updated the event plugin.

Looking at your code it looks like your running the above as one single block, is that correct?

The reason I ask is the calls to force the calendar scripts to load on the page must be before the call to wp_head() or get_header() within your template file.

So above whichever of those calls you are using within the template you can do:

if ( class_exists( 'EED_Espresso_Calendar' ) ) {
	global $is_espresso_calendar;
	$is_espresso_calendar = TRUE;
	add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', array( EED_Espresso_Calendar::instance(), 'calendar_scripts' ) );
	if ( EED_Espresso_Calendar::instance()->config()->tooltip->show ) {
		add_filter('FHEE_load_qtip', '__return_true' );
	}
}

Then you use echo do_shortcode('[ESPRESSO_CALENDAR show_expired=false]'); within the template to output the calendar.

We have updated the calendar documentation to make this clearer here:
