Shortcode Not Working

I am following your tutorial step by step. I created an event, copied and pasted the example code from your website for the design I wanted, and it will not load the calendar. All you say in the instructions is to activate, add events, create a shortcode. What am I missing?

      Just checked the page and the events are displaying fine.

      See the screenshot attached.

      Have you managed to resolve the issue already?

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 12,2017 AT 4:51AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34002

      Hi Ashish.. I did resolve the issue, it was the clients’ theme conflicting. Only one other issue remains that I may fix as well before a response 🙂 – Do I need an Addon for the social icons?

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 12,2017 AT 4:57AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34003

      no, go in Myeventon>>>>settings>>>>single events and activate the ones you want

      then in

      myeventon>>>>settings>>>>event card data activate social media and position it to where you want

      Got it. One last thing I noticed but may be a bug or just me. I am on a 4k monitor and when I have an extremely long event (or embed a document), the scroll bar doesn’t reliably appear. I am then left with part of the event hidden below the viewport. By shrinking my browser window I can sometimes make this work reliably, but it isn’t consistent. I am cautious here because I don’t want to tell our clients they can do this and then not have it work for longer events.

      This client, as one example, will have the events you see now. Under Event Description, though, they will build out a daily schedule for the whole weekend. 30+ activities.

      could you provide a link to that really long event please or tell me how to navigate to it

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 12,2017 AT 5:25AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34012

      Naturally, I don’t have one built out yet, I was only testing before. It seems to be me, though, if I have the browser window large enough to not have a scroll at the beginning.

      One last question. On the Jump Months. If I only have one year, can I just have it show the months instead of “2017” below the months?

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 12,2017 AT 5:33AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34014

      I have added some css to

      appearances>>>customize>>>>custom css which hides the year

      Thanks. Just purchased my second license and can’t get a Google Map to work on this one, even though I imported all the settings. Am I missing something?

      Also.. I have to purchase an add-on just to allow people with Editor role to change events? I don’t need to specify users or have front-end editing. I just want people to edit them in the dashboard of WordPress so $59.00 seems steep?

    • By: Ashish Rai Apr 12,2017 AT 9:56AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34038

      Hi,

      Yes, to allow different user roles, you will need to use action user addon. It has numerous other functions and not just the ability to allow user roles. Therefore, $59 is reasonably priced, I think.

      As for the the map, pleas go to myeventon->settings->google maps api and add the api key in the field provided.

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 12,2017 AT 9:58AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34039

      Got it. Just fixed it before you replied. Also purchased the 25 sites for user roles. Thanks.

      No bulk license for the main plugin right?

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 12,2017 AT 10:10AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34042

      Last question, I hope. I purchased the 25 site license for the slider too. I want a featured image on the event page, but not passed to the slider. Can I disable it from only the slider?

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 3:46AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34114

      I will alert Ashan the plugin creator to this topic (sorry to say I know you are busy- he is on a break with his family at the moment- easter time) but he will be able to answer the bulk main plugin- see what can be done there.

      as for the slider- what did you want to replace the slider image with?- another color- with css we could make all the sliders background color a certain color but they wouldn’t be different colors for each event

      you can also create a custom meta data  (myeventon>>>settings>>>custom meta data
      activate a field make it a multi line text field (which is the wysiwyg editor) and add an image to that so the built in featured image would be for the slider and then in myeventon>>>settings>>>event card data you activate the custom meta data and position it at the top and deactivate the featured image from appearing- test it out first see if that works

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 4:54AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34126

      I basically just want to disable the featured image from appearing in the slider at all. See the main page here with the colors? I want that to stay exactly like that, but have the featured image still show in the lightbox and on the event cards when it is clicked.

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 6:10AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34130

      I have done something- Yes I can remove it if you need

      go here: https://jellystonewarrens.com/

      click on the first green event the pop up has an image at the top (yogi bear)

      if you like it I can show you how this was done (so you can do it on your other sites- if you don’t like it I will revert it back to what it was)

      it’s not 100% the same as a featured image but close, but allows (without custom coding) to have a large image at the top of the pop up and still retain the color of the slider

      Sorry if you absolutely hate this I am trying to help

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 6:11AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34131

      that image can be anything you upload- different for each event

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 6:12AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34133

      I know that but I don’t want an image on the slider. I like the colors.

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 6:26AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34134

      there is no image on the slider- it is green- when you click – the pop up event has an image

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 6:31AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34137

      Right now there is not, you are correct. When I add a featured image to the event, though, it automatically replaces the green background (or whatever color I have set for the event) with the featured image on the slider. When I add a featured image, I don’t want that to happen.

      Check now, I will forcibly put an example there.

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 6:42AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34141

      Yes when you add a featured image it will display as the slider background for that event-

      what I am talking about it

      go here https://jellystonewarrens.com/

      see the first event with a green background: 5-7th may It’s our 45th Anniversary Season! Help wake up the Bears!

      it is green on the slider- click it- the pop up has an image at the top

      your comment:
      I basically just want to disable the featured image from appearing in the slider at all.DONE– it doesn‘t appear

      See the main page here with the colors? I want that to stay exactly like that,- Done it is still green

       

      but have the featured image still show in the lightbox and on the event cards when it is clicked.- Yes this is done- click the first event and the lightbox shows yogi bears

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 6:49AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34145

      This seems to be a workaround, but the image doesn’t fit the box as a featured image does. It displays borders to the left and right since it is essentially inside a <div>.

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 6:49AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34146

      Also, what did you add to accomplish this and where?

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 6:58AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34147

      1: I created a custom meta data
      myeventon>>>>settings>>>custom meta data

      activates the first one called it . as in a full stop- and made it a multi line text (which is actually an editor)

      2: in myeventon>>>settings>>>>event card data
      activated it and dragged it to the top

      3: when creating an event (or editing one) scroll down there is a wysiwyg editor called . (as in full stop)
      add the image to that- click save and it appears on the event

      4: add some css to the appearnaces>>>>customize>>>custom css
      this hides the icon

      so once you have set up the custom emta data you simple add the image to the wysiwyg editor and not the event image area- yep there is a border but it still looks OK and no need for custom programing

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 7:02AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34148

      the borders Might be able to be removed but that is outside my knowledge- I will assign to ashan the plugin creator who is currently away (easter family etc) but may (or may not) have a solution to getting rid of the border for just that area and not the rest of the event./

      Notes for shan:
      go here https://jellystonewarrens.com/ click the first event – 5-7th may

      see the image at the top which is a custom metad data- see how to remove the border without effecting the rest of the event padding

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 13,2017 AT 7:04AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34149

      That seems like an awful lot of work when we will have to train clients to do that. I can follow that pretty easily but we have to have something our clients can follow who aren’t tech savvy.

      Truthfully it seems like something that should be optional for everyone. An extra shortcode that would allow you to disable the featured image from the slider. Just hide the image.

    • By: infotainerdave Apr 13,2017 AT 7:38AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34155

      the difference is after you set it up

       

      upload an image to the event image or the custom meta data- thats all the customer has to do- in both options they are uploading an image- the only difference is they are not uploading from the event image on the side of the event but within the event- easy

      if you are creating the sites then you simply set it up- – adding a custom meta data takes all of 30 seconds to create

      Just wanted to check have all your issues been resolved? if not please let us know what is left

    • By: Brian Searl Apr 17,2017 AT 3:17PM - Posted 4 years ago - #34423

      Ultimately I guess what I am looking for is a feature request. While the above worked in principle it was not ideal and I couldn’t live with that type of compromise. I would just like to see an option in the shortcode for the slider to not include the featured image from the event. That way I can add an image but not have it automatically linked to the slider.

    • By: Ashan Perera Apr 18,2017 AT 8:52AM - Posted 4 years ago - #34484

      Yes absolutely we can definitely make that happen let me add that to feature request list.

      Cheers!
