Events Grid – Styling not displaying

We have installed the “Events Grid View Template” downloaded and installed the add-on.

Currently we are using the default shortcode to display all events (there are only 3 currently) [ESPRESSO_GRID_TEMPLATE]

The 3 events are showing, however there is no styling at all loading so the events and the elements of each event (image, title, date, register now) are all loading vertically with no CSS.

Any assistance you could provide would be much appreciated. Any extra information you need, let me know.

Hi there,

Are you using a page builder or loading the shortcode directly within the page itself?

Can you link me to the page in question so I can take a look?

…which is how we would normally add the shortcode.

Just to clarify, is this a recent issue then?

With you saying it is how you normally add that shortcode, does this work elsewhere with that same setup?

Officially, Event Espresso does not support page builders, we hook into the content and check for EE shortcodes so that we know if we should add out own assets to the page or not. So if an EE shortcode is in use we’ll add various assets to that page, otherwise not.

Page builders don’t save the shortcode in the same way and it can prevent the above from working to detect the shortcode usage.

There is a hook available to force EE to set the page as one where the shortcode has been used, we may be able to use that here to fix this.

Hey Tony,
Apologies for the confusion. So when I mentioned this is how we normally add Shortcodes, i just mean in general for any other plugins etc… This is the first time using the Events Grid add-on.

Hmm, yeah so it looks like the above is happening, but I can’t reproduce it.

Can you send me a copy of the theme so I can test this locally?
