Adjusting Length of [event_list] descriptions

Recommended Posts

James Giroux

Hey Nick,


One comment I've received is that the length of the excerpt for the event_list shortcode isn't quite long enough.  I've manually adjusted the $trimmedexcerpt length to 100.  By doing that though, I've totally screwed up my home page.  I can mess around with layout a bit to fix that but thought I would send you some feedback anyway to say that as you're updating this plugin, increasing the length of the excerpt would be cool.  


It seems like a bigger deal than just manually adjusting the length because then it gets into multi-line display and I think that's where the issues are coming from.  I'm not a php'er so I'm not 100% sure but yeah, there's the feedback.


If you can think of a way to help me fix my page so that it displays correctly that would be sweet (but I'll keep tinkering).  I think it's got something to do with the 1/3 column setup I've got.  


Here's the link for your reference:








Here's a screenshot in case it looks amazing on your machine.

Ya I think I can push an update to allow you to change the excerpt length. Will make it out this weekend. To fix you're issue I'd delete, then re-install the section. It will keep your settings.



Something big is coming for DMS + photographers.

      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.

      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.
