Display a category by venue

I have venues setup and types of events by Category. I would like to list events in a category, by venue. I though something like: [ESPRESSO_VENUE_EVENTS id=1 event_category_id=”public”] might work, but, alas, no. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Ideally, I would like to use my newly created [ESPRESSO_VENUE_EVENTS id=1 show_only_dates=true] as a base!

Sorry for the delay. The best way to do this would probably be to add categories for your venues also and use the [EVENT_LIST category_identifier=your_category_identifier] shortcode.

At each event, I have public tickets and dealer space, which I have set up as categories.

I need them to be displayed separately, so as not to confuse the two.

I see that I can allocate more than one category to an event, but I cannot work out how to show events by venue. Using [EVENT_LIST category_identifier=your_category_identifier] can I indicate 2 categories?

Yes, you would enter both Category Identifiers.
Like so: [EVENT_LIST category_identifier="youth","adult"]

It looks like [EVENT_LIST category_identifier=”youth”,”adult”] will display all items that are in ‘youth’ and ‘adult’.

I want to only show items that are only in both, removing anything that only appears in one category.

Ah, sorry about that.

Let me discuss this with our developers and get back to you on it.

No problem – thanks for the help.

This hasn’t been tested, but you could try altering the shortcode to:

 [EVENT_LIST category_identifier="youth" AND "adult"]


 [EVENT_LIST category_identifier="'youth' AND 'adult'"]

Otherwise, you might need to create a custom SQL query to do what you need it to do.

[EVENT_LIST category_identifier=”youth” AND “adult”]

Shows everything

[EVENT_LIST category_identifier=”‘youth’ AND ‘adult'”]

Shows “No events available…”

Though not an ideal workaround, you could attach a third category to the events that have two and show events by that category. Otherwise I think Chris is right in that a custom SQL search will be needed.

I tested what Chris suggested, and the [EVENT_LIST category_identifier="youth" AND "adult"] shortcode worked for me. The other didn’t.

Bins, were you able to get the results you were looking for?

Alas, no, I cannot get it to work!

By switching the categories around I noticed that it only shows the first and not the second!
