Ticket #30985 Public

Can't change behavior of single events

I previously used a shortcode to set single events to open in a pop-up, but I want to change that to open in a page so that I can share the events on social media. I made a video of what I see when I try to change it:¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9fuIwAGDcA. The setting just doesn’t stick, and my events still show as a pop-up. Thank you in advance for the help.

      Also, when I share on Facebook it publishes a link to the event page, as it should (screenshot), but when I share on Twitter it publishes a link to my Events page (screenshot). And when I try to share via email it doesn’t work at all (screenshot). I’m using the most current version of the plugin.

      I am uploading a video on how to do a few things

      I have gone in and changed the calendar so that when you click an event top it takes you to the single event page and not a pop up

      as for eventon you are not using the latest version- you are using 2.4.10 and there is a 2.5.1 version which among other things fixed the twitter problem and email problem

      this video is what I did to your events page


      this video shows how to get your shortcode selections to hold


      the audio is out of sink but you’ll be able to see what is going on both videos open in a new tab

      This is fantastic! Thank you! One question I have is I noticed that now all of my external links open in the same tab, but I always set them to open in a new tab. Is there a setting to get them to open in a new tab/window?

      Thank you again!

      Oh, and I just noticed that the email link still doesn’t work. Sorry to be *that* guy …

      I still don’t see the update you will have to do a manual update to version 2.5.1 which should fix the email thing but in my own test it worked

      To open events in a new tab see screenshot- set for each event you tick the tiny box after you click open events page- it is currently not a function to set an entire calendar to open each in a new window¬† so unfortunately you can’t do a setting that makes all open in a new window you have to do them 1 by 1

      The Eventon plugin isn’t showing an update in my WordPress dashboard, like plugins are supposed to. But I downloaded it from this page and tried installing it on my site. But I get this error. Here’s a Dropbox link to the zip file I downloaded.
