I use generatepress for theme development and would like to change the display of the event posts.
In the past I find that most plugins provide documentation which usually tells you to create a plugin folder in your theme directory and copy the files you want to modify.
I don’t see this with Event Espresso.
All I can find throughout this site is that I create “archive-espresso_events.php” and adjust to my needs. Are there any tutorials or better documentation on how to integrate event espresso into your theme?

Hi there,

We don’t have much documentation on integrating into themes because for the most part, it is automatic. Event Espresso hooks into the_content() call and injects the additional event details for each post that way.

Can you let me know what it is you are trying to do? I may be able to help point you in the right direction or find some docs to help if we have some available.

Hi Tony, Sure
I just want to create a responsive columnized view of events with some modifications to the structure (rearrange divs, add custom layout).
I tried copying the archive-espresso_events.php and content-espresso_events.php to my child theme yet nothing is affected.

Hi there!

Thanks for contacting us!

If you would like to style the look of your events archive page, then follow the WordPress instructions for creating a custom template for archive pages.

Build a template for your events – create a theme template named archive-espresso_events.php Then place it in your theme’s root directory. For the default WordPress Twenty Thirteen theme, this location will be wp-content/themes/twenty-fourteen.

Build a template for a single event – create a theme template named single-espresso_events.php Then place it in your theme’s root directory. For the default WordPress Twenty Thirteen theme, this location will be wp-content/themes/twenty-fourteen.

You mentioned that copied the archive-espresso_events.php – but just confirm if it’s under the theme folder.

Let me know if it works!
