    Hello there @voirplusgrand, I hope you're well today!

    1. When will i get events search form?

    You can use the default WordPress search to search through events as well, by adding the code below in your theme's functions.php:

    function custom_filter_search( $query ) {
        if ( $query->is_search ) {
    	$query->set( 'post_type', array( 'post', 'post_type' ) );
        };
        return $query;
    };
    add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'custom_filter_search' );

    and replace post_type in the above snippet with the actual wiki post type.

    2. Where to customize the user messages ?
    3. is it possible to add another informations on an event signup form?

    Could you please elaborate?
    which messages do you want to customize and what other info do you want on the signup form?

    Cheers,
    Ari.

    Hi Aristath,

    Thanks you for your quick answer.

    1. By chearch form, i meand someting like this : http://templatic.com/demos/nightlife/ (in the header)

    2. There are somes emails who will be sent to the user like welcome email, or others notifications emails, so is there any place to modify (or add) them on the plugins?

    3. On the events creation page, i want to add somes missing fields because i need mores informations before someone create an event. So how to add custom fiels on the registration page?

    4. Is it possible to add event list shortcode?

    Thank's and sorry for all the questions.

    1. By chearch form, i meand someting like this : http://templatic.com/demos/nightlife/ (in the header)

    I'm afraid that for the time such a functionality is not included in the Events+ plugin.

    2. There are somes emails who will be sent to the user like welcome email, or others notifications emails, so is there any place to modify (or add) them on the plugins?

    Are you talking about the emails sent by the Events+ plugin?
    You can edit the email sent on RSVP by enabling the "Email: send email on RSVP" addon.

    3. On the events creation page, i want to add somes missing fields because i need mores informations before someone create an event. So how to add custom fiels on the registration page?

    You could use the CustomPress plugin to add your own fields.

    4. Is it possible to add event list shortcode?

    I haven't tried it myself, but you it seems to me that this plugin should do the trick: http://wordpress.org/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Ari.

    Yeah Aristath,

    The problem is that i'm a beginner.

    1. I'm asking the combination of the tags and arguments.

    how to associate this : [eab_calendar]

    with this : "network" or this other one : "navigation"

    2. Have you verified my theme function for the event search form? Is it a problem if i already have a searche form on my site?

    Cheers,
    Thierry

    with this : "network" or this other one : "navigation"

    As described in the shortcodes page, both "network" and "navigation are boolean
    network - (boolean) Query type
    navigation - (boolean) Show navigation

    A quick google search for "boolean", reveals this:

    In most computer programming languages, a Boolean is a data type with only two possible values: true or false

    So, you would do it like this:
    [eab_calendar network=true navigation=false]

    I hope that helps!

    As for your events page that doesn't display anything, I just logged-in to your site.
    You don't have any events that are set in the future, so it's reasonable that no events are displayed.

    Is it a problem if i already have a searche form on my site?

    No, it's not a problem.

    Cheers,
    Ari.

    I momentarily switched your theme to the twentytwelve theme and then back to your theme.
    When using another theme, your evnts appear normally.
    So this is definitely an issue with your theme...

    Did you by any chance create custom templates for the events page in your theme?

    Please advise,
    Ari.

    Thanks Ari,

    i saw that too. With the wordpress default theme everything appears normally.

    About the theme issue, what do you recommend me please?

    Ps: I did'nt created any custom template for the event page. (I'm a beginner) :slight_smile:

    Cheers,

    Hi Ari,

    This is the theme developper answer:

    ..................................................................................................................

    something is causing the following function not to work:

    <?php echo Eab_Template::get_event_link($post); ?>

    You’ll find it in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/events-and-bookings/default-templates/full-width/archive-incsub_event.php on line 18

    ....................................................................................................................

    How to fix it please?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
