Hi, I want to be able to list events by category. I followed the instructions and have added in a menu option showing just that category. The issues I have are as follows:

1) the Title of the page is “posts classified under: [Category]” how do I change this?

2) The date I created the event appears to the left hand side of the event post, but the actual date of the event doesn’t. I’ve had to put the date of the event into the event description.

Can anyone help?

This is what I mean – https://slingababy.co.uk/event-category/peer-supporter-course/

Hi there,

Most of the output for EE4 events is actually controlled by your theme, we hook into the_content() and inject additional event details but most of it comes from your theme (this is intentional to keep events consistent with the rest of your site).

The reason I mention the above is the points you’ve raised actually come from your theme and we don’t have control over it.

1) the Title of the page is “posts classified under: [Category]” how do I change this?

That’s from your themes template files, can you send me a copy of the theme? If there is a hook available within the theme we can help with this.

2) The date I created the event appears to the left hand side of the event post, but the actual date of the event doesn’t. I’ve had to put the date of the event into the event description.

This one is a little more complicated, your theme is outputting the event post date there but as you mentioned, that’s not your event date and to fix that you’ll need some custom templates for your theme to either force it to pull the event date there or remove the date.

If you can send me a copy of the theme I’ll check if there is hook available to use (likely not) but this may need custom development.

To send me the theme either host the zip file (you can add it to your site like you do with images) and post the URL here or use something like WeTransfer to send it to support[at]eventespresso.com
