    How can I tell your templates that they should use my Theme templates options.

    Especially for the Event Locations and the categories

    Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards,


    Alain Blaettler

    When I setup the Locations and the Events

    1. The Calender View looks OK
    2. When I click on a Event into the calender, the site is correct formatted

    But when I then click on the locacation link within the details the site is not formatted anymore, it looks like it uses your theme or the WP TwentyEleven or Twelve theme.

    Can I change this behaviour?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Alain,

    The plug-in looks for the following templates in your theme/child-theme:

    • single-event.php (Displays event page)
    • taxonomy-event-category.php (Displays category page)
    • taxonomy-event-venue.php (Displays venue page)
    • archive-event.php (Generic event list, e.g. ‘events’ page, ‘events on date’ etc )

    If they are not found, it uses the default templates provided (single-event.php is different here in that it uses single.php and prepends event content if it is isn’t present in your theme). These are designed to work with as a many themes possible (and a based on the TwentyEleven/Twelve themes) – but obviously one size can’t fit all…

    You can copy the default templates into your theme and edit them (they will then survive updates to the plug-in, and the plug-in will use those templates over the default ones). More details on this can be found here: http://wp-event-organiser.com/documentation/editing-the-templates/

    Typically its a good idea to use an existing theme template as a basis, and then add-in the various [API functions[(http://codex.wp-event-organiser.com] if and where you want them (see the default template for examples too). For the venue page, a good place to start is your category.php or taxonomy.php template.

    If you have any questions, I’d be happy to help!

    All the best,

    Hi Stephen,

    I copied taxonomy-event-venue.php to my child theme. Changing this file has no effect.

    “Enable template handling” is checked in settings.<br />
    If I switch to default wordpress themes, the same problem.

    What am I missing?

    I figured it out. It was WPML plugin causing the problem. After changing some settings in WPML, my custom tax. template worked.
