How do I get rid of the date under my event name ?

Is there a way that I can change the Event page to allow a left sidebar (which is where I have my event menu) ?

Is there a way to put two venues on the bottom of the page? (one will be the conference and the other will be the beach party) I was thinking I could just do two iframes.

Thanks for your patience and help with me being new.

Hi there,

How do I get rid of the date under my event name ?

There are a few different methods, the easiest is to just hide it using CSS but right now your site is showing error 500 so I can’t view the event to check the CSS classes to use.

Is there a way that I can change the Event page to allow a left sidebar (which is where I have my event menu) ?

Does your site’s theme have a template you can select for that? EE just uses your theme to output the event (wee hook into the_content and add the event details) so it’s up to your theme for the above.

If you have theme templates you can select them using this section in the event editor – https://monosnap.com/file/YY4tavFWlS1HGiHWOyDqIINNgMgOHJ

Another option is to copy your themes single template and create a custom template that is always using for EE events, in that template you do can set the sidebar to load, but for that, you’ll need to be comfortable editing WordPress themes/templates and I have no idea if you are?

Is there a way to put two venues on the bottom of the page? (one will be the conference and the other will be the beach party) I was thinking I could just do two iframes.

You won’t need to use 2 iframes and if you comfortable editing templates as above, you could do this with a custom field to setup which venues to load at the bottom of the page and then call the function(s) to output them in your template.

The page should be up now. https://dev.setrac.org/events/symposium

This is what I have for theme template: https://monosnap.com/file/MzLbgpZXfLY5Ojt5djI0UczNWr4ws2

I am not that experienced in editing themes/templates. But I do have support that can do it, if I have the details. (I am not using a child theme, would these changes be affected by any future updates to the theme?)

Thanks Tony.

For the date you can use:

.espresso_event_type-single-event .post-meta-info {
    display: none;
}

That’s being added by your themes single template.

This is what I have for theme template: https://monosnap.com/file/MzLbgpZXfLY5Ojt5djI0UczNWr4ws2

Hmm, ok, so your theme has the options but at a guess, it likely checks the post type before using them, or even loads a different template if the current post type isn’t what it wants.

If you can send me a copy of the theme I’ll take a quick look and see if I can spot what is happening. You’ll need to host the zip file and post a link I can download it form (You can mark the reply as private).

I am not using a child theme, would these changes be affected by any future updates to the theme?

Yes, you’ll need a child theme as you will need your own version of the theme templates to load.

Just to confirm, are you saying you see these options:

https://monosnap.com/file/MzLbgpZXfLY5Ojt5djI0UczNWr4ws2

Oo the EE event editor?

Not in the event editor page. In event editor page all I have is Page Template and then Default Template and drop down.

Apologies for the delay, this took a little digging.

Not in the event editor page. In event editor page all I have is Page Template and then Default Template and drop down.

The reason for this is the theme checks for specific post types, post and page to be exact and EE events are neither of those. The problem with it doing that is it will only setup various options for those post types and anything else relies on the defaults.

So, for EE events to display a sidebar, you would need to set the default option for the theme to display a sidebar, you do that in ‘Highend -> Highend options -> Layout settings -> default options’

Unfortunately, that will then also be the default for all of your posts and pages unless they have something set within the options you posted above on each of them.

This can be avoided using a child theme and loading a custom version of the template specifically for EE events, however, due to how the options are set up within the template I don’t know if you’ll run into further issues when options aren’t set.

Do you still want to try that rather than changing default options?
