We are using CiviCRM 4.6.28 on current Joomla version. As we are using the training location in the title already we would like to remove the display of the location column as it is irritating if it shows (not available).

Is there any way of removing this without hindering further updates? Screenshot of frontende display upcoming events

You haven't said which page you are referring to but I'm guessing that this is the public HTML listing of events. If so, the output is controlled by this template: <civicrm root>/templates/CRM/Event/Page/ICalendar.tpl

You can copy this to create a custom template and edit it to remove the location column.

  • Thanks so ver much. Just had to comment out two lines of code, take care that the page was not just called and then replace the ICalender.tpl file. Problem was : I had no idea where to look for the file in the first place. Tnx again Commented Jun 15, 2017 at 20:36
