How to build custom Espresso Event post templates on Genesis

Event Archive template

Step one: Copy an archive-espresso_events.php template file into your Genesis child theme. Here’s a copy you can use:

archive-espresso_events.php

Step two: Copy the content-espresso_events.php template part into your child theme. If you plan on customizing the other template parts included in Espresso Arabica 2014, you can copy those over to your child theme.

Step three: Modify the markup in your copy of content-espresso_events.php and other template parts as desired. The code block that controls the display of the Event Archive is in the later part of the file, after the
elseif ( is_archive() ) :
check.

Single Event template

Step one: Copy a single-espresso_events.php template file into your Genesis child theme. Here’s a copy you can use:

single-espresso_events.php

Step two: Modify the markup in your copy of content-espresso_events.php as desired. The code block that controls the display of a single event is in the first part of the file, after the
if ( is_single() ) :
check and before the
elseif ( is_archive() ) :
check.

Venues and taxonomy archives

The same basic steps apply for Venue and taxonomy templates. Here’s a list of Venue and Taxonomy templates that WordPress will pick up and use if they’re present in the child theme:

Venue templates

  • archive-espresso_venues.php
  • single-espresso_venues.php

espresso_get_template_part( 'content', 'espresso_venues' );
to the loop.
