I’ve built a website for our Chamber of Commerce. Now that Community Events is available, I’m trying to use it on the site. Prior to your release, I was using Events Calendar Pro to publish Chamber Events on their own calendar page; and a different plugin (Event-O-Matic, not as nice-looking, but similar in functionality) to publish Community Events on its own calendar page. So basically, I was running two separate calendar plugins on the same site, without intermingling events between the two calendars.
I understand how to use categories with your plugins, and isolate each calendar to publish on their own page:
However, when I click on a single event in either calendar, and it opens that single event view, at the bottom of the page there are links to an event directly prior and directly after that event, which might be on either calendar instead of only for that calendar category. How can I eliminate the links at the bottom of each page? I’ve altered my theme settings to not include post links, but it doesn’t seem to affect the pages that events appear.
Also, the link at the top of individual events page says Back To Events, which takes the viewer to one overall calendar that contains all categories:
- not separated like I have it above for community-events and chamber-events.
If I can’t take the viewer back to a specific calendar, then I’d like to eliminate that Back to Events link also, but don’t know how or where.
Thanks, I love your plugins!
Thanks for your post. First off, I just want to say that you may be running into issues by running the two plugins side by side and the first thing you should try is to deactivate the other plugin to see if this clears things up.
In this case though you shouldn’t need to do that. To remove the links at the bottom of single events all you need to do is modify the single events template located in /wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/views/single.php – make a copy of this file and place in an ‘events’ folder in your theme. Then, open up the file for editing and at the bottom on lines 109 & 111 you’ll see the code for the prev/next links. Just remove those lines, save and they should be gone!
For the category specific back links you can use something like this: https://gist.github.com/2004548
You’ll want to again modify single.php where the current back link is.
I hope that helps but let me know if you need anything else!
I will give this a try and respond back for others’ benefit also. I should have mentioned that I did deactivate and delete the Event-O-Matic plugin, as well as trashed the pages where it was collecting community events prior to installing your plugin.
I will get some help with modifying the php file and run my tests again, and report back in here if you’d like. Thanks for your help!
Sounds good Naomi!
I am very grateful for your help! I spent the evening making the changes you suggested and transferring over the community events previously entered under the other plugin. Now, every event on the Chamber website is working wonderfully through your plugins, and the pages are appearing and linking just as I wanted!
If there was some way of selecting whether or not to have a sidebar on the add-events page (or customizing the sidebar) that would be my last wish with this.
I had a meeting with the Chamber president, and she’d like me to also implement Eventbrite! So, I will be in touch to let you know of my ongoing success with this website!
Thanks for all your help & for you guys making great plugins!
Hey Naomi. Thanks for the follow-up; so if I understand correctly you’re all set here? The ability to have a sidebar-yes-or-no option for the forum is a very slick feature request! In fact, because I thought it was such a good idea I’ve just created a “Feature Requests” thread in the forum here (http://tri.be/support/forums/topic/community-events-feature-requests/) for folks like yourself to help us decide what goes in the next releases. If you want to share your idea (and any others you have) in there it’ll certainly give it some weight
Cheers and please let us know if we can do anything else on Community…or Eventbrite, once you jump into it. Cheers!
