Create event listings by category

I’m trying to create a sort of “index” page that lists each of the courses we offer arranged by topic area. I don’t need the full topic event description, on an excerpt, the title and date and the image. Very much like the default listing but separated by topic area.

I can see where the shortcodes allow me to list a category (or topic in this case) but the listing is unwieldy. The shortcode I’m using is in this form: [ESPRESSO_EVENTS category_slug=fat-grafting]

Please advise.

Hi Doug,

You can customize the output of the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode by copying over the content-espresso_events-shortcode.php file from the Event Espresso plugin into your WP theme.

Then you follow the instructions located in the PHP comments at the top of the file.

Thanks Josh, I’ll give that a try.
