Variables using do_shortcode not working in single-event_espresso.php

In the single-event_espresso.php file, the variables coded this way:

$event_start_date = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_start_date', true); work fine whereas the other variables using the do_shortcode do not work. $event_time = do_shortcode('[EVENT_TIME event_id="'.$event_id.'" type="start_time"]');

I have used other do_shortcode with my themes shortcodes in the template and they did work fine but the event espresso’s shortcodes do not bring back the values of the variables.

I verified in the database and I do have values. I am using the latest version 3.1.25.P

Sounds like the $event_id variable is not being declared.

Maybe this could be of any value, I also tried hardcoding the event_id value directly in the code and it didn’t bring back the information.

The following variable should be included with the group of variables declared just after the loop in single-espresso_event.php:

$event_id = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_id', true);

The variable is included with this group of variables:

  $event_identifier = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_identifier', true);
  $event_id = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_id', true);
  $event_start_date = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_start_date', true);
  $event_end_date = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_end_date', true);
  $event_thumbnail_url = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'event_thumbnail_url', true);

within the single-event_espresso.php, file yet it doesn’t work.

Looks like it’s more of an issue with the event_time shortcode. I’ve created a ticket to address this. For now, try using the $event_start_date:

                <p class="start_date">
                    <span class="section-title">Date: </span>
                    <?php echo $event_start_date; ?>
                </p>

It seems like the shortcode for EVENT_PRICE and EE_META are also not working.

Where are they not working?

They aren’t working in the single-espresso_event.php and page-event_list.php templates from the post-type-samples.

For the price shortcode, open up includes/shortcodes.php and change line 283 from

espresso_return_single_price($event_id, $number);

to

echo espresso_return_single_price($event_id, $number);

For the ee_meta in the above mentioned templates, you’ll need to declare $event_meta:

<?php global $event_meta;
     $event_meta = event_espresso_get_event_meta($event_id); ?>
