no event_meta in event_list_table.php

Hello, i’m busy doing customization on the event_list_table.php custom file.
I want to include a custom-made meta_value event_tb, but it does not work.
I’ve read about adding shortcode EE_META to it, but this is not working.

Anybody ?

Using the EE Meta, create a meta key called event_tb with whatever value you want to use. In your event_list_table.php, assign a variable to that value by doing something like this:

 $event_tb = do_shortcode('[EE_META type="event_meta" name="event_tb"]');

Then call that variable wherever you want it to display with an echo, e.g. echo $event_tb;.

Hey Chris, thanks for the help but i tried the shortcode already.

It seems like the shortcodes don’t work in these files…
From the forum i found following solution, but not with the shortcodes.

global $event_meta;
$event_meta = unserialize($event->event_meta);
$event_tb = $event_meta['event_tb'];

Just to be sure, did that work for you?
