EE4 Allowing widget short code on single event page

With EE3 I used the plug in “Widget Shortcode” to add a “Show all events in this specific category” widget on every single event. (Se http://www.trappanbio.se and view an event.)

EE4 shows empty widget (only the widget title is visible). (This future site is not online yet.)

WordPress Version:
3.9.2
PHP Version:
5.4.26
MySQL Version:
5.5.32
Event Espresso Version:
4.3.1.p

Hi,

Are you referring to the widgets in the footer (bottom left)?

If those are dynamic widgets that are set through WordPress admin –> Appearance –> Widgets, then the information should appear.

Test: Can I post this (I have tried to add information with an error message as a result).

No, I am referring to the area for the event itself.

Look at http://trappanbio.se/visning/?ee=106 or view this print screen http://trappanbio.se/printscreen.png

The footer widget shows all the event and thats fine. I’m searching for a way of ALSO showing a specific widget in the event post area. It workes in EE3 but not in EE4.

Hi,

I tested the plugin out on EE 4.3.1 and it worked fine – screenshot http://take.ms/dQKTv

Thank you!

You are right. In 4.3.1 it works 🙂 but current event will not show up. I’d like to list ALL the event within the category chosen, even the one opened.

Is that possible?

Hi,

Not from what I can tell, but you would be best talking to the Widget plugin creator regarding that issue.

🙂 YOU are the plugin creator of Event Espresso Upcoming Events and it works in EE3 so I thought it was possible in EE4.

I’ll better change the Widget title to “OTHER shows” until it works in EE4.

Hi,

I meant the developer of the “Widget Shortcode” plugin.

Thanks for impressively quick response again, Dean! 🙂

That plug doesn’t do anything but placing your widget on any place of my choice. And in EE3 with grace.

I’ll go by Plan B (using “Other dates” as Widget title)

Ahhh my apologies, I see what you are saying now. I assumed it was related to the other addon, but you are absolutely right that it is EE.

I think the devs assumed that if you are already in the event you don’t need to see it in the upcoming widget.

I’m glad you found a workaround though!

(I’m not sure my customer will be happy when the EE4 upgraded site will be up and he will se an empty widget even though there is a show.)

I hope for an option in the settings in the future.

Cheers!

Hi Henrik,

While we do not plan to add a user-configurable option for this, you can make your client happy by customizing the widget to their specifications. I outlined how to make a custom event widget in your other thread, and the code you’d change is on line 270. You can change it from:

if ( $event instanceof EE_Event && $post->ID != $event->ID() ) {

to

if ( $event instanceof EE_Event ) {

Thank You!

The Gist package* and this code worked!
