Hi Tony,
please excuse me having one more question:
When I display the event calendar using this shortcode:
[ESPRESSO_CALENDAR cal_view=basicWeek event_category_id=xx,yy,zz]
the filter dropdown shows all categories instead of only the three categories set.
Same for the category legend, where I was expecting the limitation as well.
Looking forward to learn how to set this up this correctly.
Best,
Lukas

Hi again,

Can you please share a link to your calendar page so that we can take a look?

Turns out the filters on the calendar aren’t limited by the shortcode parameters so it is currently expected that they show all categories.

We can add a hook into the calendar that will allow you to hook in and filter the terms used by that section based on the shortcode parameters. I’ve created a pull request for this to be included in the next version of the calendar which is currently under review.

Hi Tony,
thanks for considering this as a feature for the next version as well.
I don’t ask you when the next version is planned to be released…
Best,
Lukas
