    There were two issues, the normal archive page was again set to a different template and the Elementor archive page was only set to show on the places archive and not on categories or tags (you can also set it for search if u want).

    The custom image size does not seem to be working, i think it is related to jetpack.

    Thanks,

    Stiofan

    The event settings will override the main (default) setting.

    For the background featured image I recommend you install the demo template for the details template or the archive item to see how that is setup.

    To dot hat you would create a new template and take the opportunity to import a template, at which point you should see the template you can import.

    Hi Alex,

    That’s exactly how I’ve done it each time so far. In the templates, they are set as an actual image. Problem is with that, is that although it’s possible to overlay text on the top, it’s not possible to overlay a gradient.

    I’d also like to have a fixed height and that the image centres both vertically and horizontally, but it’s not really possible again with an image, unless it’s cropped in wordpress, but Stiofan thinks Jetpack is preventing the custom sizes.

    So in theory, a background image of a div section is the way to go. It allows me to dynamically insert the Featured Image in the editor, just like an image, but on the front end, it keeps repeating the same image.

    Would Stiofan mind taking another look? I’m guessing it’s just not picking up the post ID for each event for some reason.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Also, I’ve selected the ‘event_dates’ field to insert into the item. Works well for most, but when it comes to recurring events, it displays every single date available.

    I can’t see any other field to choose from that would select on the first recurrence. Is it possible to shorten this down somehow or provide another field that would allow me to just have the next recurrence only?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    You can use GD Event Schedules shortcode for event dates.

    I will ask the developers to consider the background image usage.

    Hi,

    Just come across a small issue I’m having in the Elementor designer again.

    I’ve added the Closed Now / Open Now business hours meta data to the place archive item I’ve created in Elementor. The element works fine in the archive pages using the ‘Archive Posts’ widget. It allows the user to click the arrow and open a list of the places hours. Example here:
    https://whatsonhub.com/places/category/restaurants/united-kingdom/east-riding-of-yorkshire/

    However, when using the same skin in the GD Listings widget at the bottom of a details page, that business hours element is holding the hours list open instead of being hidden. No button appears either to allow the user to close it. You can see this under ‘Nearby Restaurants’ on this page for example:
    https://whatsonhub.com/events/united-kingdom/east-riding-of-yorkshire/the-woman-in-black-18

    Can you please help?

    Thanks,
    Dave
