Venue Title in custom templates

In the template widgets.php i want to add venue_title to my list.

I’ve tried this: <?php echo $event->venue_title; ?> but that didn’t work. What do I have to do for this to work?

Just to confirm, are you using EE3?

If so the links Lorenzo provided will allow you to include the venue-title.

You’ll need to add the code provided within the pastebin and then you can use something like

echo $event->venue_name;

Hi Tony,

That’s the problem I don’t quite get what to do with the links provided. Can you explain what needs to be done?

I’ve added the code to the widget.php file on my install –
Place that file in wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates/ to keep it update safe.

You’ll need to add

venue_name ; ?>

Wherever you would like to output the venue name in the widget.

Hope that helps.

Thanks that works great, only thing is that special characters like ‘ get slashed out.

What needs to be like this: ‘t
Get’s rendered like this: \’t

Hi Joshua,

This can be fixed by adding the PHP stripslashes function to the code, like this:

<?php echo stripslashes( $event->venue_name ) ; ?>
