Showing staff with event details instead of event summary

I would like to show the event staff members only when the user clicks “View Details”. As the events page now shows, it is cluttered up with too many details. I want to show the when and where info on this page and the details only when the button is clicked.

Hi Bob,

You can go to the Event Espresso > Events > Templates tab and change the settings for the Event Listings to make it so some of those details are not displayed there. If you have any questions about any of those settings there please let me know.

I cannot yet find a way in the template settings to achieve the effect I want. I have set the category flag so that all 3-day events have the same slug. Now what I want to see is a list of dates and locations (i.e. city) and a button that says “View Details”. When clicked, the venue, staff and ticket details appear. Right now, the template settings for the Event List Pages allow me to hide or show venue details, but this only applies to the listing.

I have set up the TEST page to try to get it working the way I want. Can you help me a bit more here?

Here are two images with annotation that may help you see what isn’t working for me:

Hi Bob,

It looks like the screenshot URLs you tried to post here are not valid, you should be able to find the correct URLs in your WordPress Media gallery and repost here.

Please try the second set that I posted moments later. They both work.

They only work if you are logged into the site, viewing those links shows the login screen –

You need the full URL from the media library.

Go to Dashboard -> Media.

Find the image and click on it.

You’ll see something like this –

We need the URL from the highlighted field.

I sent an email with the screen shots last Thursday. Did you get them and do you have any solutions for me?

Yes we got those screenshots. I’ll follow up with individual snippets for each part of your screenshot below:

In this screenshot, and later in the similar annotation you remarked about the space to the left of the View Details button. The View Details button is over to the right, so the space to the left is there to allow that View Details button to be displayed. One solution that you might consider is you make that button bigger and remove its float: right style with some CSS:

.post-type-archive-espresso_events .view-details-btn {
width: 300px;

You can also apply the following to center that button:

.post-type-archive-espresso_events form {
text-align: center;

The above CSS will change the button to look like this.

Then in this screenshot you asked about the More Dates button. May I ask what about the button makes no sense? If there’s more that one date time for the event, that button will appear. Then when you click on it, it displays the additional dates.

Then in this screenshot you remarked about the way the dates are displayed. Since you’ve started another topic about this, I’ll follow up with you about that there.

Then later you wrote:

“I don’t want the staff/leader to show on the event list. It should show in the “Details” section.”

You can remove that information from that page by adding the following function to your website:

add_action( 'init', 'my_remove_people_from_event_list', 10 );

function my_remove_people_from_event_list(){
        array( 'EED_People_Event_Template_Parts', 'add_event_archive_template_parts' ),

You can add the above to a functions plugin.

Then finally, you wrote

This show the details for the Woodinville event, but there is no “continue reading” button for the Bellingham event.

That’s because there are fewer than 55 words for the Bellingham event’s description. Where there are more than 55 words in the description, an excerpt is shown (with 55 words) and the Continue reading link will appear after the excerpt.
