How do I sort My Events List and remove the expired ones?

Also, is there an easy way to format the event details like Event Date & Time, Location, Tickets, Etc. I want add a grey box behind them so are separated from the rest of the page.

Wait lists: Is there a way to show the list of people who have RSVPed for the wait list when we show attendees by event?

Thanks,

Amy

Hi Amy,

How do I sort My Events List and remove the expired ones?

We have multiple event lists within Event Espresso, can you let me know which specific listings you are referring to?

Also, is there an easy way to format the event details like Event Date & Time, Location, Tickets, Etc. I want add a grey box behind them so are separated from the rest of the page.

Do you mean adding additional styling? Can you link me to the page you are viewing, please?

We don’t currently have an option to display waitlist registrants, but may I ask, how are users ‘RSVP’ing to your waitlist? That’s not a function within Event Espresso unless I’m misunderstanding.

My Events List – where it show each user which events they have RSVPed too. I need to sort by Next Event Coming up and hide the past events. https://htxoutdoors.com/my-events/

Here is an example of how I formatted it on one site.

https://htxoutdoors.com/events/full-moon-hike-members-only/

When I copied my site over, it removed the formating.

There is a new plug-in that enabled wait lists so we do it through the EE calendar.

I can’t view that without logging in but I follow now, to remove the expired events you can use the snippet here:

https://github.com/eventespresso/ee-code-snippet-library/blob/master/addons/eea-wp-user/tw_ee_filter_getTemplateObjects__query_args.php

You can add that to a custom functions plugin, we have some documentation on creating one here:

https://eventespresso.com/wiki/create-site-specific-plugin-wordpress-site/

Changing the order_by depends on which specific template you are using. What is the full shortcode in use on that page?

That’s just from some custom CSS you have in what looks like the Simple Custom CSS plugin on the other site, you’ll need to copy the types from the other site into the new one and the formatting will apply.

Yes, but there is no ‘Waitlist RSVP’ feature with the Waitlist plugin. I think you are using the term for registration that have used the link and paid (so they are Approved) rather than a simple RSVP which is fine, I just wanted to check how you were using it.

Okay, the code to hide old events worked! Now I just want to sort in the opposite direction. The shortcode I’m using is [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS]. I tried using [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS sort=ASC] but it doesn’t work.

I’ll look for the Simple Custom CSS plugin. Thanks!

I got Simple Custom CSS to work.

Yes, I was talking about registration. I want to show my wait list registrations as a separate RSVP list. Is this in the works?

There is no ‘sort’ attribute on the above shortcode, you can see the available parameters on this page:

https://eventespresso.com/wiki/wp-user-integration/#ee4-my-events

To sort based on the next upcoming event date you can add this:

$query_args['order_by'] = array('Datetime.DTT_EVT_start' => 'ASC');

Just after line 16 on the above snippet. That will set the query to order by Datetime Event Start ASC.

Not currently. no. You would need some custom development to add another attendee list specifically for waitlist registrations.
