    I bought the standup theme and am starting to work with it.

    I already own Elementor Pro and use it pretty well.

    Is there any basic walk through on the structure of the Standup theme and adding events, etc..

    Also, can the single event template be edited via Elementor Pro?  I cant find the page or template to edit for the single events...

    Hi,

    You can learn more about our theme and watch video tutorials to get started here: https://sonaar.io/video-tutorials/

    If you want to modify or create your own single event page template with Elementor Pro you can. For this, you will have to check with Elementor Pro directly on how to modify custom post type page template..

    Thanks,

    I couldnt find your single event page to modify?  Is that allowed in your theme?

    I know how to make my own, but would prefer to modify the one already being used.

    Maxime replied

    If you want to modify the template without Elementor, you can edit the file called single-event.php

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Can it be edited with Elementor or just at the code level?

    I am not at the point of doing code level modifications, so that may affect whether this theme template will work for me.

    Maxime replied

    Yes it can if you use Elementor Pro's Theme Builder feature. That is why I was refering you directly to Elementor Pro.

    You can modify any single CPT template by going to WP-Admin > Templates > Theme Builder > Add New and select Event for the template.

    Thanks,

    What is the name of the template you use for the single event ?  I cannot find it.

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    I am not sue if you understand what I am asking

    That is where I can create a new single listing

    Where can I find and edit the existing one that came with the theme?

    Maxime replied

    The event is a custom post type so in WordPress a custom post type is a PHP file template (called single-event.php) in our case. Its not done via Elementor because its how WordPress works for CPT.

    If you want to edit individual event, you can go to wp-admin > event and edit your event details.

    If you want to modify the single event template with Elementor, your only choice is to create your own event template using the instruction below OR edit the single-event.php file code.

    That is how WordPress and Elementor works.

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Based on your answers this theme will not work for me.  I thought the single event page would be customizable in Elementor as I have for other CPT.

    I emailed hello@sonaar.io but havent received any response regarding this.

    Maxime replied

    please send me a screenshot of what you want to edit in elementor exactly and Ill show you how.

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Its not that easy.. I was wanting to create an event single page using Elementor and you said it cant be done that way with your theme.

    Its not a specific item, I am trying to layout the single page to be used by all events 

  •  211
    Maxime replied

    I think there is a confusion or I dont understand exactly what you are trying to do, but you can do everything with Elementor and Elementor Pro using our theme.

    - building your event SINGLE page template is doable with Elementor Pro's theme builder as I shown in the previous screenshot. Once the layout is done IN elementor pro, all events will inherit from that template.

    Now, if this is not working for you, let me know what is not working exactly.

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Max,

    What I would like to do is edit the existing Single Event page/template that you provided in the theme and I am unable to find it listed under Templates or pages in WP.

    I know I can create a new one of my own, but I like yours and would just like to edit the template and use it for all events.

    I am unable to find it listed anywhere to edit it.

    If I can do that, then, yes, I should be fine.

    Maxime replied

    As I said, you cannot edit the existing single page template WITH elementor because our own single page templates has been build with PHP only. Why? Because it's how WordPress works. Without a php template, there would be no custom post type.

    And since our single template is very simple and dont have much details on it, Im wondering why you just dont recreate it (with Elementor Pro) to suits your need ?

    If, for any reasons, you don't want to recreate it with Elementor, what do you want to change exactly on the existing template? 

    Thanks,

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    I will try to recreate the single page template

    Can I access custom fields I add for events in the template ?

  •  211
    Maxime replied

    Yes, for the custom fields, you can use the field name: data-field_name 

    see screenshot: https://d.pr/i/2abbAx

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Max, thank you.. I think I can make this work.

    Two last questions:

    #1 in your example I accessed custom fields that were already part of the event setup

    Can I access ones that I create myself at the bottom of the event, the naming  convention seems different, so I wasnt sure.

    #2 When I add two custom fields to the single page using "inline" is there  a way to adjust the spacing, etc between them?  I tried adding spaces before and after, but it only lets me add "1" 

    In my attached example, the two fields are too far apart.  I wanted to put a | between them as a separator, but the spacing before and after it are way off.

    Hi,

    #1 I never tried to use custom fields created "on the fly', i am sorry.  This would require some research/test to see how it works. Unfortunately it's beyond the scope of our free support. If you want us to assist, check out our customization services here: https://sonaar.io/service/website-customization-service/

    #2 What I would do is to add 2 separate custom field widget (1 for the date, and 1 for the time). And have the 2 widgets's positioning set "inline" so they can be beside each other. and then adjust padding/margin of each of your widgets to desired spacing..

    Thanks,


    Maxime from the Sonaar.io Crew

  • Chris Wheeler replied

    Max,

    #2 below will work well enough, thank you.

    In regards to #1, These are custom fields added in the area that is provided in the Events setup page that was part of the theme purchased. I would think the goal to give that ability is so that data can be accessed if needed?

    Im not asking for custom dev, I would think when the theme and event module were designed, this was the thought behind providing the ability to add custom fields?  I just want to know if they can be accessed and added to new pages.

    Maxime replied

    Hi,

    I assume it should work as with any other theme and adding new custom field to custom post type should work as with any themes. Have you tried it? What does not work exactly?

    Thanks,

    Hi Maxime,

    I found this issue as I am also working on my own template for events... got it almost working... not all.

    Please a look at this: https://d.pr/free/i/jGvNOU

    The venue and city are 2 seperate custom fields.. 

    I managed to get them online, only below each other...

    I want them next to each other like:

    venue | city

    Is that possible?

    Kind regards,

    GertJan

    Maxime replied

    You can do it with custom css and have them display:inline-block etc..

    unfortunately, custom css is beyond the scope of our support as well.

    Hi Maxime!

    I have made a new template for a single event :)

    https://www.madonna.nl/concerten/madame-x-tour/07-03-2020

    I managed to get the date, time, venue and city with Post Costum field , Custom Key (event_city, event_venue). Awesome!

    Now I also want to display the buttons (in the admin called 'Event Call to Action'). Can you tell me how I make them visible on my own created even template?

    Kind regards,

    GertJan
