I modified the default item-event.php and template-events.php in my child theme to list my events as excerpts.
Now I’ve run into a problem where the single view of the event shows up as an excerpt too. I assume template-events.php and item-event.php are still being called.
I’ve tried to upload single-event.php, which is essentially a copy of single.php. This is the format I want to use instead. I’ve double-checked in custom-events.php that the custom post type is called ‘event’, so I expected that single-event.php would take precedence over template-events.php.
