Event Espresso (EE4) and Revolution Slider

I’ve purchased the Revolution Slider as the site I develop for wants the ability to have events on the homepage where the user can slide through them and then easily select the event they want to register for.

I don’t know if I’m particularly dense at the moment but I can’t figure out how to easily get events I have created into the slider.

Can someone explain to me in very small words 🙂 what I need to do.

Thank you to anyone that helps.

You’ll actually follow the Revolution Slider’s documentation:

When you follow the above documentation, during step 2, you’ll select the Event Espresso events custom post type.

OK I managed to get my events into a slider (yay!!) but it’s showing ALL of the events.

Is there a way to limit it to just future events?

There may be a way and it will involve adding custom PHP code to your site. You’ll find some example code in this GitHub Gist:

You can add the above to a functions plugin by following this tutorial or into your WordPress child theme’s functions.php file.

I’ve copied the above PHP into my Snippets plugin and activated it and it kind of works.

But for some of my events it’s displaying the slide 2 or 3 times in the slider so I have to swipe through a few times to get to the next event.

I only realised when I turned on the Tab in the slider. I have included a screen shot below so you can see the extra slides.


Why would it be doing that?

Sorry, I shouldn’t do this when I’m so tried.

I think I’ve realised what it’s doing, I’m just not sure how to fix it.

I think the slider has a slide for the number of Event Datetimes created for each event. So if my event has 3 different Event Datetimes then 3 slides appear on the slider.

What you can do is go into the Revolution slider settings for that slide and set the Post Categories to single-event. Here’s a screenshot with that option outlined in purple:
