My site has custom templates with the following text (referring to another event management plugin):
if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
echo ”;
<a href="”>
echo '’;
endwhile; else:
echo ‘No upcoming event.’;

What syntax would I use to replace it with Espresso information?

Hi James,

The code didn’t come through. Either way, Event Espresso doesn’t require you to modify the theme templates in order to display events. It uses a different method that involves placing shortcodes on a page and publishing it.

For example if you want to display a list of events, you can add this to a page:
and it will do the rest of the work.

There are more details about the available shortcodes here:

Is there a way to submit a file?

I’m not sure I understand your question. What are you trying to do?

Right there are templates on our website that call upcoming and features from our old RSVP maker plug in. I would like to edit the template to pull information from the event espresso system. My problem is a don’t. Know syntax to use to replace the rsvpmaker statements. Look at our website under calendar of events.

Hi there,

I’m still not sure what you are looking to do. I view the calendar of events page, and it’s displaying a calendar generated by Event Espresso. I can recommending removing the “(Available parameters: month, basicWeek, basicDay, agendaWeek, agendaDay)” message from the page as it’s not needed.

I can also point you to our shortcode documentation that includes examples of shortcodes that can be added directly to template:
