Table view with multiple dates.

Hello,

I have the table working and it looks great, however, I have one complaint. If I have an event with multiple dates and times, in the table view it only shows the first available date. Is there a way to change that to something like “multiple dates and times available”? The way it is set up, it makes it look as if there is only one day for that event.

Thanks

Hi Alexander,

The template does only show the first date that is in the event.

It could be done with a small modification to the template though. If you are happy to dig into some PHP I can walk you through it.

I’ll also add this as a feature request, as it could be quite easily added as a parameter

It would appear something like this (this has not been styled) http://take.ms/ujGy6

Hello,

Yes, that looks fantastic! Can you let me know how to do that?

Thanks!

Hi,

The first thing that you need to know is that this modification will get over written if the addon is updated.

The file that needs editing is /wp-content/plugins/eea-events-table-view-template/templates/espresso-events-table-template.template.php

Around line 102 (near the bottom) of the file is this code

See pastebin for the code: http://pastebin.com/CSCZGCsc

All this does is replaces the output of the date with a special function that lists all the datetimes.

After that you may want to add this CSS to your themes style.css file, your custom CSS section of your theme options or to a plugin such as My Custom CSS:

.ee-event-datetimes-ul li {
list-style-type: none;
}

That will just get rid of the dots in front of each date.

Hi Alex,

Just to note, you can actually place the modified template file within your sites theme or wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/

So you could have have :-

wp-content/themes/*your theme*/espresso-events-table-template.template.php
or
wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/espresso-events-table-template.template.php

The files will load in that order, then if none found default back to the original within the Add-on.

That will keep your customised template if we update the Template Add-on, however to note if you include it within your theme, theme updates could remove it. Some security plugins also do not like .php files within uploads (for example Securi) just something to be aware of.
