Id like to show the events end time in table view.
if the end time is the same date, i want to show

date, starttime, endtime

if the end time is a separate date because the event has multiple days i want to show

start date, start time, end date, end time

is that possible?

Hi there,

Yes, this is possible, but you’ll need a custom template to display that info.

The template used by the add-on can be copied to the root directory of your theme (preferably a child theme) and EE will use that custom version in its place.

So copy the template \eea-events-table-view-template\templates\espresso-events-table-template.template.php

You can then edit the output however you prefer in that template, the closest we have to the output you are currently requesting is using the espresso_event_date_range() function.

I copied the template file and inserted the date_range function but then the table view page stopped working. i imagine i didnt insert the correct range of lines. would you specify which lines from the link you posted need to be inserted at which point in the template?

Generally, we don’t provide support for customizations and would recommend you contact a developer. However I can help point you in the right direction for this, within the template you’ll have this line:

<?php echo date_i18n( $date_format . ' ' . $time_format, strtotime( $datetime->start_date_and_time('Y-m-d', 'H:i:s') ) ); ?>

Change that for

<?php espresso_event_date_range( '', '', '', '', $post->ID, true ) ?>

Note that will only work if you do not set show_all_datetime=true on the shortcode as then you’ll be looping over all datetimes to output a date range multiple times.
