Advanced: Overriding/Customizing the templates

For overriding or customization template files can be found in the wp-event-manager-event-tag/templates/ directory. To override a template file, first you need to create directory “wp-event-manager-event-tag” under your theme folder and copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-event-tag/” directory. Your theme will use all the template files from the “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-event-tag/” directory instead of the plugin’s template file (/wp-content/plugins/wp-event-manager-event-tag/).

  • event-event-tag.php template file lists the user’s tag.
  • wp-event-manager-event-tags-forms.php template file which controls the tag form display on events page.

Remember: if you have overrided template file and plugin frequently updating then you need to sync template file with new updates from the plugin’s template file for better functionality and new features.
