Setting Up A Single Event In Content Section

Recommended Posts

Hey Nick.
 
I LOVE the work you are doing for pagelines extending, it's great.  So, I've got a clean install of pagelines, I activated the events section, followed the instructions for setting it up and for some reason I'm having trouble getting single events to display.  What I'd like to do is feature a single event on my home page that a user can click on for more information.  Here's what I'm entering for code:

 

[event_single id="23"]

 

So, the ID there is what I see when I want to edit the event but when I click on the view link, I actually get the slug for the event title.  I'm trying to troubleshoot this and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

 

I've imported the sample data to try and figure it out but I don't think there's a single event example in there.  Also, I'm noticing that agenda content isn't showing up on any event either.

 

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

 

Cheers.

 

James.

Right on, so when you go to edit the even in wp-admin, check out the browser bar and that number is the id of the event.

That's where I'm getting "23" from.  For some reason though, the shortcode doesn't seem to work when setting it up on my home page.  Am I able to use that shortcode outside of an event post?

Do you have the section activated? When I go to the events archive there's nothing there

Hey Nick,

 

Sorry to cause so much stress.  Yes, the section is activated.  I'm using the slugs event and events.  Individual events are accessible but for some reason the archives aren't.

Here's a link to an event:

You also should set your permalinks so the event archives show. Choose Monday and Day or something other than default.

Hey Nick,

 

I usually tweak the permalinks but was hoping on a fresh install to get things working first.  Thanks for the help.  I didn't think I needed the post loop in the home page if I wasn't wanting it there.  But I guess now I know better.

 

Thanks,

 

James.

      Having a problem with an EVENT Post from Caledarize It. The Calendar page looks fine but when you go into the event itself the layout gets all messed.
      The Event calendar works fine and when you click on an event the page only works if you select only for "This event". The page needs to be for All events so they all look the same.
      Looks like conflicting code maybe?

      Hi, collegues!
       
      I installed "Events Manager" (5.5.3) by Marcus Sykes, but it destroys my site (JavaScript?)
       
      Would you say possible best ways to organize events area (business events, trainings, networking) on site?
       
      May be you know some examples, some good WP (compatible with DMS2) or DMS2 plugins that can help me, may be you know some issures that i should to overcome or to avoid?
       
      Thanks and good day!

      Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I could add a way for users to search through events (only events) on the front page?
       
      Has anybody made any sort of 'Search' section yet, or any suggestions for other ways this could be accomplished?
       
      Thanks in advance for any ideas you might share!

      Hi Nick,
       
      Still one issue was not resolved.
       
      The [event_agenda] short code feature does work, but it does not scroll like on the short code site

      Hi Nick
       
      I am building a site with Pageslines V2 and I'm having an issue with the Events section. The agenda does not display other than the shadow around the box (div). If I use the default Pagelines install the Agenda works fine but if I use the Pagelines Base Child theme or the Simpliciate Theme I have an issue.
       
      Can you offer me a solution please buddy. I have attached a screen shot to illustrate my issue.
       
      Thanks in advance.
       
      Cheers
       
      Gary
