I put the espresso-events-table-template.template.php file to the child theme folder and renamed it to archive-espresso_events.php. It is working.

I will contact you with further problems.

I replaced the espresso-events-table-template-toggle.template.php as archive-espresso_events.php.

But it does not look like the one in the

Also the filter on the top is not working.

Hi there,

Those templates are not intended to be uses as page templates.

espresso-events-table-template-toggle.template.php is a template from the Table view template and is expected to be called from a shortcode (which calls the assets needed for that shortcode such as the JavaScript files for the filters).

The image you linked to is a different template from the same add-on, it’s the ‘toggle’ template – espresso-events-table-template-toggle.template.php

However, again, that’s expected to be called through a shortcode to add its assets to the page. If you are going to use those templates as direct page templates your going to need to call the assests on the page yourself.

Take a look within EES_Espresso_Events_Table_Template.shortcode.php and you’ll see how the add-on manages the CSS and JS files within there, you going to need to load those when needed on that page.

Thanks, in that case I cannot use it. Back to my top question then:

The same way you did above, only archive-espresso_events.php will be the output you prefer rather than a copy of the table view template.

You can use the table view template as a base to build your own output but there is going to be more involved than just renaming the template as mentioned above.
