Download Link is not showing on event pages with WP Event manager. See example of page here https://heartofacadiana.org/events/wearable-technology. Tried setting template to both pages and events and neither allow the link to show up. Thanks for any insight you may have into this issue.

Hi,

We just released an update (1.08.05) with its support of "Events Manager". Please update plugin to latest version and let us know if you will face any issues with it. Thank you.

P.S. Correct settings for E2Pdf Template: Extension: "WordPress", Item: "Events".

We remain at your service.
We would really appreciate your feedback at WordPress.org!

Thanks! It seems to be working so far, is there a way to dynamically insert the page id into the pdf shortcode, so that information is pulled from events manager based on the page that the file is opened from?

If "E2Pdf" Template is connected to "Events" and you need to dynamically output shortcode on that type of pages, just use [e2pdf-download id="1"] (without dataset) and where 1 is the ID of Template.

I've done that but it is displaying information from a different event. Please see the following page https://heartofacadiana.org/events/wearable-technology
There is a download link under the map.

Can you please attach screenshots where "[e2pdf-download]" shortcode located and screenshot of your "E2Pdf" Template (while editing) please.

P.S. You can mark message as "private" so only we can see message.

The problem is due using [events_list] shortcode inside E2Pdf Template. It's showing only last event in your case. [event post_id="[id]"] - is also restricted due security issues so it will not be possible to define "post_id" before main value render.

There are 2 possible ways that may fit to your needs:

1. Try to use meta keys instead of shortcodes (screenshot 1).

OR

2. Make special shortcode with format: [e2pdf-download id="1" arg1="eventshortcode" arg2="eventshortcode2"] (screenshot 2). To output values from "arg" arguments you will need to use shortcode [e2pdf-arg key="arg1"], [e2pdf-arg key="arg2"] and so on. (screenshot 3)

P.S. The first solution is prefered as it will be easier to manage and values will be changed dynamically if "event" data will be changed even if "pdf url" will be accessed by old generated url. With 2nd solution, if users will try to access by the old "pdf url", that was generated before changes - they will see old data as "arg" attributes depends on the "shortcode".

Some of shortcodes rendered correctly on this event: https://heartofacadiana.org/events/wearable-technology and on others also.

Date and time seems have not closed "]", can you recheck it. Also HTML block with address has something wrong in value - check please if html is well formatted and all shortcodes closed correctly via "Right Mouse Click" -> "Properties" -> "Value".

P.S. Do you have any "Database" or "WordPress" cache plugins installed, sometimes when first time download link clicked it's showing 404 error.

It looks like incorrect "quotes" over key value.

Try please copy it from here:

[e2pdf-arg key="arg4"]<br>
[e2pdf-arg key="arg5"], [e2pdf-arg key="arg6"] [e2pdf-arg key="arg7"]

Paste it via "Right Mouse Click" -> "Properties" -> "Value"

You have also incorrect "quotes" inside [e2pdf-download] shortcode. Please correct all quotes to: "
And check if data will appear.

Glad to hear that issue solved.

Just one more thing you must keep attention on: values (#_LOCATIONNAME, #_LOCATIONADDRESS, #LOCATIONTOWN, etc) that passed to arg1, arg2, arg3, etc must not contain " inside.
