Hi,
I need your help in taking down some elements on the following page (and some others):
– remove the author, tags and social media links (not properly linked)
https://hands2care.ca/index.php/events/bls-provider-mississauga/

Also, for some reason, after linking my Google Maps API to EE, the map does not show up when published.

Awaiting your response,
Thanking you in advance.

Hi there,

Event Espresso doesn’t add the author or social media links into the single event page, it looks like those are being added by you theme (or possibly another plugin).

You can hide the social buttons for EE events using:

.espresso_events #share_on_socials {
    display: none;
}

The author info:

.espresso_events .about_auther {
    display: none;
}

Combine them together:

.espresso_events #share_on_socials,
.espresso_events .about_auther {
    display: none;
}

Add that in Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS.

Also, for some reason, after linking my Google Maps API to EE, the map does not show up when published.

In short, Google Maps is no longer ‘free’ and you need to have Billing enabled on your Google account.

If you go here: https://hands2care.ca/index.php/venues/

Then open up Chrome Dev Tools (or similar) you’ll see this error in the console:

Geocoding Service: You must enable Billing on the Google Cloud Project at https://console.cloud.google.com/project/_/billing/enable Learn more at https://developers.google.com/maps/gmp-get-started

You’ll need to follow the links an enable billing on your Google account for Google Maps to function.

Okay. I will resolve the API problem on my end.

I tried pasting the CSS code into the additional CSS section and nothing happened! What am I doing wrong; should I remove the dots before the code and delete the extra spaces or should I paste it as is?!

And what about the tags?

You would use it as is, the dots, hashes and spaces are all important as they mean different things.

Looking on your event page I can see the code is working:

And what about the tags?

I can’t see any tags on the page, have you already removed those?

I apologize, it was a totally different question (my bad). How can I remove the tags (and possibly the account username) on the event page and event category (https://hands2care.ca/index.php/bls-registration/)?

Also within the event page, there are 2 buttons (previous post and next), how can I remove them as well?

In regards to the API – do you have an estimate on how much is it after the trial period?

What are you referring to as tags here?

Can you add a screenshot that shows what you want to remove?

You can use:

.espresso_events .post_next_prev_con {
    display: none;
}

In regards to the API – do you have an estimate on how much is it after the trial period?

It is totally dependant on traffic so any guess I could give may well be totally incorrect.

Outlined in red are the components that I want to be removed.

Oh, ok, that’s the single event page but you linked me to the event list above.

For the above you can use:

.espresso_events .post_title_con .meta,
.espresso_events .small_title,
.espresso_events .tags_con {
    display: none;
}

This is great. Thank you very much.
Can you also provide me with the CSS to remove the username and date on the category page?

Also, is there a way to remove “Event Category:” from the title? The title of this page is supposed to be BLS Registration

Hmm, that ones a little more generic and would need this:

.espresso_events .meta {
    display: none;
}

That may target other sections so check everything you want to be displayed still does after you’ve added the above, there isn’t a more specific class added by your theme to use there.

.espresso_events .meta is a ‘broad’ selector, it will select any element with the class meta within an element with the class espresso_events, meaning it may well select (and hide) other elements that you don’t want to hide if they also have the class meta.

The class names come from your theme and not Event Espresso so it’s not something we have control over.

If the above hasn’t hidden anything important to you then its not something to worry about for now.
