Is the categories and Edit Button showing up an the event page standard? With switching themes, these options are gone. See photos

I checked with Buddy Boss and they had no idea what I was talking about. I’m pretty sure this is just standard with WordPress, right?

I figured this one out. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks!

For others looking at this ticket, add this code to your single-espresso-event.php file that you add to your child theme.

<?php edit_post_link(__(‘Edit Event’)); ?>

You can change ‘Edit Event’ to whatever you want as long as you keep the ‘ on each side.

NOTE: If you’re not customizing your event page using the single-espresso-event.php file, there is other code you can add at a higher level.

Hi Amy,

II see you’ve found the solution already but just to note the above links are indeed from your theme.

Iโ€™m pretty sure this is just standard with WordPress, right?

The above function is a WordPress core function your theme would call to add the links to the output.

(It can also be done through a plugin via a hook, but generally, it’s don’t through the theme).

I had it thru a plugin in first but once I got the Single Event Page working, the Edit Button disappeared again. So I had to bring it in there.

Yep, it’ll depend on what that plugin was hooking into to output the links.

When you changed themes the hook likely changed… or was part of the original theme and isn’t in the current one so the code didn’t run.
