Remove/Change sidebar on events page?

Hello hello! I’ve been searching the forums, but can’t find anything that relates to my specific situation. I can’t seem to change the sidebar on the events page. I’ve tried the Custom Sidebars plugin, but that didn’t work either.

You can see what I’m talking about at: (password is: REDACTED BY SUPPORT)

Bonus two questions:

1. How do I remove specific elements in the events page? If I can have the register option in the sidebar, then there isn’t a point of having it on the main page, same with the event location.

2. The Events page says “Test Event” (title of the first event I created), and I can’t seem to get rid of it :(. Any thoughts?

Any help y’all can throw my way, would be doubly returned in positive karma.

Thanks in advance!

I used the Custom Sidebars plugin and it works fine for events.

For example, go to Widgets, create a new sidebar. Once created click sidebar locations, then choose “As Main Sidebar for selected Post Types” and then select Events. Save changes and you’re good to go.

Other than that you would need to either find another sidebar plugin or create a Child Theme and add in some PHP logic to change sidebars depending on Post Type.

1) You can disable the ticket selector via the “Display Ticket Selector” option in the Event Editor.

Other elements can be disabled via the Events > Template tab, or require CSS or even a custom template: really it depends on how severe/what your changes are.

2) That’s the event (post) title. The plugin lets your theme resolve the basics of post layout (title etc) so unless there is an option in your theme, I would suggest looking at CSS to hide it.

An example (and this may differ depending on your theme):

.espresso_events .entry-title { display:none; }
