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