Hi Tom,
Geodirectory said “they don’t have a separate key for start_date. We have already task in our todo to allow show start date, end date, start time & end time. It will be in one of our future versions.”

“Right now to achieve that (show start date) you want do following things.

1) Add following PHP snippet via plugin or theme functions.php file

function gd_snippet_190814_output_event_dates( $output, $find_post, $args ) {
global $post;

$the_post = ! empty( $find_post->start_date ) ? $find_post : ( ! empty( $post ) && ! empty( $post->start_date ) && $post->ID == $find_post->ID ? $post : NULL );

if ( ! empty( $the_post ) && ! empty( $the_post->start_date ) && strpos( $args[‘badge’], ‘%%event_’ ) !== false ) {
$date_format = geodir_event_date_format();
$time_format = geodir_event_time_format();

$output = $args[‘badge’];
$output = str_replace( ‘%%event_start_date%%’, date_i18n( $date_format, strtotime( $the_post->start_date ) ), $output );
$output = str_replace( ‘%%event_end_date%%’, date_i18n( $date_format, strtotime( $the_post->end_date ) ), $output );
$output = str_replace( ‘%%event_start_time%%’, date_i18n( $time_format, strtotime( $the_post->start_time ) ), $output );
$output = str_replace( ‘%%event_end_time%%’, date_i18n( $time_format, strtotime( $the_post->end_time ) ), $output );
}

return $output;
}
add_filter( ‘geodir_output_badge_field_key_event_dates’, ‘gd_snippet_190814_output_event_dates’, 20, 3 );

2) Use following shortcodes:

– For start date: [gd_post_badge key=”event_dates” condition=”is_not_empty” badge=”%%event_start_date%%” bg_color=”#ffffff” txt_color=”#1339f0″ alignment=”center”]
– For end date: [gd_post_badge key=”event_dates” condition=”is_not_empty” badge=”%%event_end_date%%” bg_color=”#ffffff” txt_color=”#1339f0″ alignment=”center”]

It makes more sense for us to show the event start date and end date so I’m providing both the shortcodes from Geodirectory.

Let me know if the snippet and codes do or don’t make sense.

Thanks!
