Would it be possible to add an author filter to the espresso events admin view?

We use the event author field to assign each course to an instructor, so it would be very useful to us to have this.

Hi there,

Yes, this is possible but we don’t have any snippets that will do it for you.

The events list table filters run through a filter:


And then the ‘where’ array for the query to pull the events using our model system is pass through:


You can find docs on using our model system here:–Model-System

Hi Tony,

Actually a developer had written a snippet for this purpose, but it stopped working some time ago. I have no idea why as I don’t know programming. Maybe you could have a look to see if you can make it work again?

it had one bug that a user could not filter for himself, but filter worked for others

We (Event Espresso) can not provide support for other users code but I can tell you that it’s using JavaScript to filter the events after the query has pulled them all in. The filters I provided above give you a better method of doing this without resorting to hacking things together with Javascript like the above does.

Any issues with JS on the page would prevent the above from working so in short, that code is ‘doing it wrong’ and even if you ‘fixed’ it it would still be fragile.

Adding a filter based on the author is something we could likely add for you using a support token if you’d like to go down that route.
