I am having two problems with the recurring events add on drop down list using the custom files. (I am using EE3 because I need the muti-event registration)
I went through the documentation at https://eventespresso.com/wiki/drop-down-list-recurring-events/
Let’s focus on the first issue to begin with. I’m hoping that the second issue is related, if not we can clear that up after issue one is resolved.
Please can you confirm what version of the Recurring Event Manager you are using?
Also, the version for Custom Templates addon and the Recurring Events Dropdown addon.
One other thing, you have a lot of custom templates in the wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates folder – these are from the old Custom Files addon, are they still required by you?
Hi Dean, thanks for your help on this.
I just downloaded the recurring events manager and custom templates add on yesterday, so I assume they are the latest versions. I believe recurring events manager is 1.1.8 and the custom files is 3.1.
I had just dropped all the custom files into the templates folder thinking I might need some for later, hmm thinking about that it was probably a bad idea. Anyway I put all the unused templates in a “unused templates” folder.
Unfortunately there does not seem to be any change in the dropdown.
I thought the recurring events dropdown add on was a separate add on that resulted in a table like view. As that was not what I was looking for I did not purchase or download it, and it was not mentioned in https://eventespresso.com/wiki/drop-down-list-recurring-events/ so I would not think it would be need for what I am trying to do here?
Just to clarify: The custom files addon is somewhat deprecated now, and should only be used when needing specific templates or needing to create very customised templates.
The Recurring Dropdown addon requires the Custom Template Display addon to be installed – I’m assuming it is otherwise you would just see a shortcode, but if you could clarify the the following:
That the Custom Template Display addon version is 1.1
The Recurring Dropdown addon will indeed create a table like view, here is a basic example: http://take.ms/vvjzt
Is it possible to get your login details in order to look into this?
If so, please send them via https://eventespresso.com/send-login-details/
NOTE: login details need to be Admin level
Hello Dean, I submitted the the login info for wp and ftp on about 5 days ago, any help? This issue is not yet resolved…
Hi Brian, that dropdown has some commented code appearing:
I think the confusion is that you are using some sample coding from the wiki article which isn’t a complete solution like the events dropdown template which is here:
Note that the custom template add-on provides a table view template layout and additional layouts such as the recurring events dropdown template are premium add-ons.
Does that sound like what you are experiencing?
