    Is the Collective theme Eventbrite ‘compatiable’? I’ve managed to set up the link and my event info is showing up as shown here:

    https://parametricmonkey.com/public-workshops-eventbrite/dynamo-workshop-44783851706/

    However, the formatting is horrible. Apparently it is using iframe? Is there any way to get this looking a bit better?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    The theme is compatible, but doesn’t contain the styles used for third-party plugins. However, I could give you some CSS to hopefully improve the way it looks:

    .js-ticket-widget.g-grid.g-grid--page-margin-manual {
       max-width: none;
    }
    .eventbrite-widget {
       margin-top: 24px;
    }

    Hopefully that helps!

    Thanks Emily

    So that CSS works on the ticket info area. How do I add a margin to the top and left for the other info (image, name, date, etc)? header.entry-header?

    The other issue is that page is a summary page. So I assume if I have more events it will show in a grid format. If you click on the link and do to the specific event (still within WordPress), there are no margins. I would like to be able to add a left and top margin. How can I do that?

    Thanks

    I think I have done what I wanted. Although the CSS I believe is post (event) specific. Not sure if there is a way to make this more generic so that I don’t have to update for each event?

    Hi Paul,

    I believe these questions would be better suited for the Eventbrite plugin developers since you are asking to customize default Eventbrite styles, and it’s not directly related to the theme.

    Since we don’t support changes to third party plugins, I would recommend contacting Eventbrite directly.

    Thanks!

    That is country to what this says…

    While a theme doesn’t need to know about the plugin to display events, it’s always best if the theme developer makes a theme “Eventbrite-optimized”. You can post on the [theme’s forum](https://wordpress.org/support/) and send them [this link](https://github.com/Automattic/eventbrite-api).

    Hi Paul,

    That is correct when it comes to making sure the Eventbrite iframe displays properly on a page within the theme.

    However, the Eventbrite plugin has default plugin styles that control the display of content within the iframe. These styles are designed to display consistently across most themes.

    Your request is asking for the change of default Eventbrite styles within that iframed content. This is not related to the theme, and is instead related to the plugin.

    Since the iframed styles are displaying as expected, customizing the styles of the plugin go beyond the scope of theme support. We can help with any issues regarding the display of the actual iframe on a page or post. However, the styles of content within that iframe are related to the plugin.

    This may help clarify… An iframe is typically used to pull content from another website or source to display on your site. For instance, an embedded YouTube video. This is how the Eventbrite plugin works by displaying the Eventbrite forms and content within an iframe. A request to change the content within the iframe is like asking to customize the display of controls within a YouTube video. And that is beyond the scope of theme support since the code is being loaded from an external source.

    I hope this helps. Thanks!
