Customize your MijoEvents events template

Customize your event using some CSS

You can change the styles used for the title and the content area by editing your AcyMailing template.
Edit the AcyMailing template used for your Newsletter and then set some styles:
    Style for the content area will be used to encompass your content
    Style for the content title will be applied to the title
    Style for the read more link will be applied to your read more link (if you have one)
    You can also set the style of all your links using the Link a field
Set styles template

Create your own template

You can also modify the way your event is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the event.
Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the MijoEvents plugin directly otherwise your changes will be overwritten when you update the plugin.
Create a file in the folder media / com_acymailing / plugins (if the folder does not exist, please create it first). The name of the file should be mijoevents.php If this file is available on your server, AcyMailing will use it and won't use the default one.
On this file you can access the element $varFields (which contains all the event information), the element $tag (which contains the information of the current tag used in your Newsletter) and $link (the event link)
You can insert the event information using this simple syntax : {title}, {fulltext}, or {link}
Using all those variables, you can create your own product template.
Here is an example:
<div class="acymailing_content">
<a href="{link}" target="_blank" >
<h2 class="acymailing_title">{title}</h2>
From: {event_date}<br/>
To: {event_end_date}<br/>
At: {locaddress}<br/>
Nb seats: {event_capacity}<br/>
Price: {individual_price}
