Hi, I want to have the event listing on the homepage of my website. I presently use the Graphene Theme. Also, I don’t want the full details of the event, I want only the Event Title and Feature image to show until you click on the event title.

You could use the Single Event shortcode:

[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id=”your_event_identifier”]

Will it list all events like that?

Sir, it didn’t work as I expected.

What I really want is the list of event titles and the featured image i have posted. When clicked, you read full information of the event.

I want all the events to appear on the home page as post.


Thank you.

There is no default option to do this, however it can be done with the [EVENT_LIST] shortcode and some coding. Options:

1) use CSS to hide the information you dont want and resize the featured image.


#myeventtitles .event_price,
#myeventtitles .spaces-available,
#myeventtitles .register-link-footer {

#myeventtitles .ee-featured-image {
width: 100px;

Two things to note here, on the page I put the [EVENT_LIST] shortcode I wrapped it in a div with an ID, like so


. Also the Date cannot be hidden by CSS unless you hide the featured image as well or have a specific list of events.

2) Modify the template files. Copy the event_list.php and event_list_display.php files to the wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates directory. There edit the event_lsit_display.php to remove any items you dont want dispalyed. YOu will still need some css to tweak it.

3) use the Custom Files addon, specifically the [EVENT_TABLE] shortcode. These files are meant to be worked with so it may still require a template modification/css change.
