Advanced: Overriding/Customizing the Template Files

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

  • content-owl-slider-event_listing.php – which display event listings with owl carousel slider.

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.
