On page, I have a listing of upcomming events at the bottom of the page. Where is the php file and what is it’s title that Displays the Date, Start Time, Price, and Available spaces? I want to take out the code that displays the price.

I would recommend hiding this with CSS. Add this to the custom stylesheet of the WP theme or use the my custom CSS plugin

.upcomingCourses p.event_price {display:none;}

I would also like to add the end time of the event as well and maybe the location… can I do that with CSS? or does that have to be done with PHP?

No, it would have to be done with PHP. The file that outputs the markup for the upcoming events widget is widget.php. You should be able to copy variables for the end time from the event meta (there’s examples of this in the event list and registration page templates. The venue title could be output by placing the [ESPRESSO_VENUE] shortcode in the widget.php template.

In the widget.php template, the espresso_venue code will need to be wrapped in a do_shortcode and pull the event ID for each event. Here is some example code:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[ESPRESSO_VENUE event_id="'.$event->id.'" show_description=false]'); ?>

I spoke with Seth yesterday, he said it was in the template folder titled event_list_display.php

I played around with it, but could not find exactly where to comment out the price. What line do I need to comment out?

I also need to add start time and End time. Can you tell me the code I need to place in there for that and what line to put it in?

event_list_display.php is not a folder. It’s a file in the /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/ folder. If you do not have an event_list_display.php file in your /templates/ directory, you need to copy that and the event_list.php from the plugin’s /templates/ directory into the one in the /uploads/ folder and make whatever modifications to that file. You probably want to look at these documents if you are planning on doing customizations:

Chris, I understand that I need to move the event_list_display.php file to the /templates folder under the /uploads directory. What I need to know is what line do I comment out in that file so it will not display the price? The page I am talking about it

Also, I want it to display the start and end time of the event. What PHP code do I need to add to display that?

Ok.. I got the time to display in the events_list_display.php

Now the problem is when I put that file in the uploads/espresso/templates folder, it did not work. I had to edit the core events_list_display.php file.

Hod do I get EE to pull the file from the uploads/espresso/template folder?

The event_list.php and event_list_display.php files need to both be copied over together.
