Flipper to Show Upcoming Events

Recommended Posts


Hi there! I'm trying to use flipper to show upcoming events on a site.

I've installed and created some test events using The Events Calendar by Modern Tribe. I installed Flipper. And in Page Editor > Flipper > Edit, it recognized the Events post type. :) It also recognized the event categories. So far, so good!

However, on the front end, it shows the featured image (great!), the event title (great!), But... it shows the published date instead of the event date and no description excerpt. :( See http://www.getreadyforwow.com/park/calendar-test

When I try to use regular post types, it does not show and events or event categories, so I cannot use that as a backup option.

Can you help me get the events to show correctly? I feel like I'm 75% there, but would like the date of the event (and not the post date) and the event description excerpt to show. I'm attaching a screenshot of what I am trying to accomplish. And you can see what is happening here (please ignore the test site styling! ;)

I truly appreciate your time and help!

here are the functions you can use for your screenshot tribe_get_start_date, tribe_events_get_the_excerpt and tribe_get_event_link

alternatively, if you use the new postgrid section, you can use the Meta Bottom field to insert the above via shortcodes as an easy fix

I think a hooks plug or docs is in the mix to make this kind of customization easier

      I am using the Powerloop plug-in on my DMS website and can sort my elements by Postdate, but I want to sort the pages in Alphabetic order.
      Actually the same question for sorting Flipper content in Alphabetic order instead of Ascending / Descending / Random options.

      We only want the images and title mouse-over, not link/click to the actual post the title is from.
      Any ideas anyone?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Is there any way to hide the excerpt in Flipper, and the navigation arrows?

      How do I hide (or change) the category title in the Flipper section?
      Could there be a setting for this in the editor?
