Events Calendar Customization

  • | Permalink


    I’ve currently been put on a project to revamp a “Calendar” section on a site. The ideal calendar looks like black/purple example from Marquee Las Vegas attached here: This calendar allows for custom thumbnail images to be displayed instead of the text and allows for a tooltip hover with more details. I want to know if this “Thumbnail”/image option is available on the current events calendar plugin?

    This is our current calendar:

    I want to know if this feature is available in the current version we are using or of we would have to get the PRO version.

    Hope this made sense.

    Thank you

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Currently, the month view (part of the free version) comes with a tooltip, which you can customize by following the instructions in our themer’s guide. This tooltip does include the featured image.

    Pro does come with some additional views (week, photo, and map), but it does not include additional tooltip functionality. You can see a demo of what these look like over on our demo site,

    We do offer full refunds within 30 days of purchase, so if you’d like to take Events Calendar Pro for a test run, feel free to do so! Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    I figured out how to edit the month view but for some reason when I allow for the toggling between “month” and “list” view, the menu appears very strange on both desktop and mobile. any idea how to correct this or what files to look into?

    Hi Barry,

    Unfortunately we cannot provide technical support here in the Pre-Sales forum, but to get you started, the files for the bar can be found at wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/views/modules/bar.php.

    I’d also recommend testing for conflicts with your theme and other plugins, and you may want to check our premium forums as well to see if another user has posted about a similar issue.

    I hope that helps!

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
