It is best to insert the shortcode into the ‘text’ view of the visual editor to ensure it gets formatted correctly.

  • The [event_manager_my_bookmarks] shortcode generates listing that the users have bookmarked (events and attendees).
  • Each bookmark links to the event/attendee in the table. Users can also edit/update and delete the bookmark details from this table.

Advanced: Controlling Bookmark Button & Bookmark Form

  • The bookmark form is hooked into the event page after the event meta place as shown below:
           add_action( 'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $this, 'bookmark_form' ) );
  • To remove and move to a different place, you can do like this:
     * Move my bookmark message place to perfect place.
     * Show my bookmark message after button section that way we have hooked 'single_event_listing_button_end' hook and it will show at after button section.
     * @param  array $steps
     * @return array
     * @since 1.0.0
    function move_my_bookmark_events_message() 
        global $event_manager_bookmarks;
        if ( has_action(  'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form'  )) )
           remove_action( 'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form' ) );
        if ( has_action('single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form')))
            remove_action( 'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form' ) ); 
            add_action( 'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form' ) );        
           add_action( 'single_event_listing_button_end', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form' ) ); 
    add_action( 'wp', 'move_my_bookmark_events_message', 12 );
  • In General, You can use your choice of custom hook to append the form to a different place.
         global $event_manager_bookmarks;
         add_action( 'your_custom_hook', array( $event_manager_bookmarks, 'bookmark_form' ) );

Advanced: Overriding/Customizing the Template Files

For overriding or customization template files can be found in the wp-event-manager-bookmarks/templates/ directory. To override a template file,

  1. Create directory “wp-event-manager-bookmarks” under your theme folder,
  2. Copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-bookmarks/” directory.
  3. Your theme will use all the template files from the “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-bookmarks/” directory instead of the plugin’s template file (/wp-content/plugins/wp-event-manager-bookmarks/).
  • my-bookmarks.php template file lists the user’s bookmarks.
  • bookmark-form.php template file which controls the bookmark form display on events and attendee page.

Remember: If you have overridden 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.
