    I am trying to add events to my page, but I am not seeing all of the info. On my page, I have one tab set as EVENTS for this I used the option in the Menu section “Post Type Archive” and this shows the event I added, but it doesn’t show the date (it only shows today’s date) and it does not give me an area to explain what the event involves.

    The other I tried is listed in the navigation menu as EVENTS1, for this I tried to make a page for Events and add the Visual Composer Events element from the theme. This option shows nothing. I have added a background image in the theme setting as well, and that doesn’t show.

    I need to be able to add an event, and have it listed by event date. I need to be able to add a description of the event and pictures.

    Please advise, as it is only showing the “Featured Image”, the title and today’s date.

    What website info do you need? Login info?
    And, you want me to take pics and detail what I want the events section to do?

    I want it to show the date of the event, not the date it was created. And, I want to be able to add a description and pictures to the event.

    This page shows the “Featured Image” but the date shows today, not the date it is set for
    http://www.newwerock.dreamhosters.com/events/

    When you click READ MORE it takes you to this page

    80s in the Park 2017

    Which still does not show the date of the event, or the location or anything. Just the image.

    So, date and location should show. There needs to be a section to enter a description and pictures within the event.

    OR, I am going to have to install another plugin for events if the one you provide in the them is not going to work. I don’t want to do that, so I am hoping this one will be fixed.

    Thank you,
    Chris

    HI There, just checking in to see if any progress was made with the Events section working properly. I am hoping to go live soon, and will install an Events plugin if you can’t get yours to work. I hope you get yours to work, but need to know.

    thanks

    I tried to work with the Events option again, and still nothing. Now it’s not showing on my Navigation Menu any longer, so nothing is showing.

    If you need to view the page, the URL still works http://www.newwerock.dreamhosters.com/events

    I have used plugin called The Events Calendar before, and it allowed the user to input a lot of into and pictures, etc. Shows a nice list and calendar with many view settings. The plugin didn’t seem to work to well on this theme, so I deleted it in hopes that you will allow the Events option built in the theme to have the same options.

    If you can’t fix it, I please recommend a plugin I can download that will work the way I want it to work. I was shooting for a Nov. 1st date of going live, but that has passed. Hoping we can get all done be next week.

    I know you are busy with lots of things, so I appreciate it, but I have a deadline too.

    Many Thanks

    I am fine with the URL, and it is showing the correct date and the featured image. But, there is still no way to add event pictures or any type of description for the event. Are you familiar with plugin called The Events Calendar? If you were to check that one out, you will see that it allows you to add a description (just like as if you were doing a post or creating a page) and you can add media (pictures) within the description. For example, if I am hosting a concert, I need to be able to let people know who is playing, what type of auction or raffle items we will have, you are sponsors are, input performer pictures and sponsor logos, etc.

    With this, it only allows the featured image, date, place and time.

    I can just upload The Events Calendar plugin and use that if that is best for you? Then you can go in and adjust the display, as when I tried it before it was not showing correct on the page.

    Please let me know which solution you recommend.

    Thank you.

    Also, it is showing the events in order they are put in, not the order in which they will happen.

    One event is Sept 2017 and one is Nov 207. yet on the page it shows the November one listed first because it was the newest entry. Events should always list the soonest upcoming event first….

    Please, maybe let me know an events plugin that work well on this page. I think the events sections that comes with this theme needs a lot of work to really be efficient. The theme is being promoted for non-profits and charities…our type of organizations rely on fundraising events throughout the year, so having a website that allows lot’s of information to the events and a proper events listing is essential.

    I understand this is a new theme and you are working very hard to improve it, and I thank you for that. I just don’t know how quickly you can add ALL of the features that really make the events section work for what we need. If it can be done, and work right, very quick I am ok to wait, if not, then another plugin will need to be uploaded.

    Thank you again for the work.

    Also, the issue should not be marked RESOLVED prior to the customer approving the solution. In this case, this issue is NOT RESOLVED yet, but I hope it will be soon.

    Hey chris2,
    I’ve added those options for you – Excerpt, Description with anything you can do it now.
    Excerpt ( Short Description ) on your Events List page.
    Description, Images etc for Event Details Page.
    I think now I can satisfy you.
    I’ve marked this Topics RESOLVED because you haven’t responded, I thought you like it. Sometimes Clients don’t come back even their problem has been resolved. Even don’t jus say a “Thank You” !!

    Anyway, Please check it now. I’ve lots of pending jobs.
    Thanks

    OK, looks awesome! Thank you.

    The only other things are the display order, should go in order of date not the order of when they were added. They should list on the page with the earliest date first.

    On the listing page, the date format, I would like the date to display as I have chosen in the main settings. So, it shows as September 22nd, 2017 instead of 2017-09-22 and the time to show 8:00PM, not 16:00

    Normally there is an option to choose the display.

    Last thing, if a field is left blank it should not show. Like, if I don’t add a start or end time, that field should be left out so it doesn’t show a blank field like it does now.

    These are things that are NOT urgent, but I would like to have done.

    Priority
    1. Listing Order by date
    2. Date and Time display (change or provide options)
    3. Empty fields should not display

    If these could be done sometime next week, that would be great.

    Thank you a million times for making these adjustments so quick.

    Hello Chris2,
    I’ve made those Changes for you.

    1. Date Format like 2017-09-22 to September 22nd, 2017 and the time to show 8PM, not 16:00
    2. Empty Fields will not show.

    I hope you’ll like those changes. I’m struggling with the Events will shows with the Event Date. You know it’s not default WordPress Rules. WordPress will show posts order by – date, id, title etc and order- ASC, DESC.

    As it’s custom date functionality. I’m trying to make the solution. While I get instantly I will update your website and let you know.

    Till now, what you’ve wanted I’ve tried to make it perfect. If you didn’t give “Elevation” a 5 Star Rating with some comments. I will be grateful to you if you do this for me. It will help me a lot.

    Thanks

    Hey there. I just realized there is still an error with the date display on the events section.

    My event date is September 22nd, 2017 ( in the dashboard it displays 2017-09-22)

    On the square next to the featured image on the actual webpage, is shows correctly. However, in the event information just below that picture is says:
    Event Date: September 9th, 2017 (should be September 22nd, 2016)

    also it shows
    Event End: 12am (that field is left blank in the dashboard, and I thought if a field was left blank, it would not display on the site)

    And, at the end of the description on that same page, it shows the […] and normally that means Read More and can be clicked. But this just shows as text and you can click the […] to read more. Should that be a link to the full event page?

    Images attached

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Sorry, in the above issue with the date display I wrote this

    “However, in the event information just below that picture is says:
    Event Date: September 9th, 2017 (should be September 22nd, 2016)”

    It should have said (should be September 22nd 2017)

    Also, I know you did a lot of customization to the events feature and others for me. I will be transferring everything over to the actual site soon at http://www.werockforautism.org

    Is there anything you will need to do the upgrades or changes that will need to be once the files are moved over to the permanent site?

    I am just waiting on the above issues to be resolved in regards to the date display in the events page and then I will transfer to new URL.

    Thank you,
    Chris

    Question are these options and changes part of the template I would have just downloaded when I purchased the files?

    I do not see any of these options, the events I am planning for my site need to have a place for me to put in more event details, maybe an Eventbrite form…..how can I get this too?

    Does the map work for you?

    I also agree the event should show up in event date order.

    Please let me know as I’m on a short development timeline. Thanks.
