Do you have more thorough documentation of how I can set up the following with the recurring events manager plugin. I have it installed and it show in the admin. But its all a bit vague for me.

I have one event where people can choose which course they want to do. Each cours is over 6 weeks every Monday. When register for the event/course there needs to be a dropdown with the option to choose course 1 or course 2? Eg.
Course 1. 18th, 25th February & 4th, 11th, 18th 25th March
Course 2. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th July & 5th August

Hi Elzette,

I followed up with you in another post, but I left out an important detail, so I’ll follow up with you here as well.

One option is the recurring events templates, and I’ve posted the most recently updated versions on my github page:
You can download those two files and upload them to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates to test them out. These will override the standard event list templates when they are in that location.

After those files are copied over, there’s one more step:

The following style rule can be added to your theme’s stylesheet, or any other custom stylesheet that loads on your site:

.subpage_excerpt .date_picker{
    display: none;

If you’d prefer to not directly edit the theme file, there’s a plugin that will let you inject custom CSS:

That is super duper awesome – exactly what I needed – (the on added last).
The only thing is – is there a way that the code can be updated to show the price and spaces available with each event in the list? And also a short description?
I posted somewhere else trying to add a thumbnail.
All in all for later releases, this would be a good way to go as standard features.
Hope this is not too much to ask. But in a way, me personally, if I have to visit a website to book something, from a usability point of view it would bother me if I don’t see these items. And I think my client is going to say the same…

I added code myself to the code you shared to have the price and available spaces show.
You can view the example here and the code for the even_list_display.php can be viewed here:
The only issue that I now still have which is rather important to me, is to have the featured image work.
Ideally if my client add an image there then it should show on the events list page and on the event registration page. I do have a discusion open about the featured image issue here:
