It is possible to override this files in child theme?

Hi, i want to override the files:



Is it possible? I want to change some options like the “Driving directions”, i want to use the geo lat & long instead of the address. I’ve changed the code and works, but i want to put it in child theme because if I update the plugin i will lose all the changes. Regards.

      Nope this is not a duplicatable file. If you want to send the code I can implement it in there for the next update so that it will work for you as well 🙂

      Thanks for the reply Ashan. It’s only a small change. I made it because the “Get directions” button uses the google maps URL + address but I have some event locations that doesn’t have a real address… That’s why I prefer to use the latitude & longitude of the location.

      Regards! 🙂

      @Pacadia , Can you share the changes you made? This mod would be perfect for a site I’m working on where the locations do not have street address, just LAT & LONG

      I dont think he was going to share it 🙂

      Here is how to do it:

      file: eventon/includes/class-calendar_generator.php


      This change is for eventon 2.5.3 version

      Here is the new code

      // GET directions
      if(!empty($LocTermMeta[‘location_lat’]) && !empty($LocTermMeta[‘location_lon’])){
      $_eventcard[‘getdirection’] = array(‘fromaddress’=>$LocTermMeta[‘location_lat’].’,’.$LocTermMeta[‘location_lon’]);
      if($location_address ){
      $_eventcard[‘getdirection’] = array(‘fromaddress’=>$location_address);
