I’d like to show a [EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW]-table only for one recurring event. For example: I’ve different photography courses. On the page of course A I want to show a Table only with all dates of course A. On course-site B I want only to show the table with course-dates of course B. And so on.

I’d be awesome if you could help me!

Thanks a lot and br,

No,I meant you can ignore the second post, but the question is still a problem! Do you have an idea?

Hi Alex,

To do this you can place each of those events into different categories then call just that category with the [EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW] shortcode.

So go to Event Espresso -> Categories. Create 2 new categories “Course A” and “Course B” – (notice the category identifiers, you’ll need these shortly)

Then assign the relevant category to each of your events and call them with the [EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW] using the category_identifier attribute.

So to call ‘Course A’ from my example, I would use:

[EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW category_identifier=”course-a-1405409521″]

That way only the events from that category will be displayed.

EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW comes with the events-table template, have you looked into the recurring dropdown template? Which works in the same way but groups all each group of recurring events into one instance and just displays the dates for that group.

Does that help?

Hi Tony!

thanks for the quick response – unfortunately that’s not a fix for my issue.
The problem is i have about 12 courses and 3 categories. each course is assigned to one category (beginner, intermediate, advanced). I want to display only the dates for course A on my page, but not all courses of category “beginner”.

Is it possible to hide categories in the category dropdown? for example to create 15 categories (each for one course) + the 3 skill-categories. In the shortcode I only show category 16, 17, 18 – so I could create the same effect like I want.

I hope I could describe my problem 😉

Thanks a lot!

Hi Alexander,

Yes that’s fine, you can chain link the category identifiers with a comma, like so

[EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW category_identifier=”british-1380794320,american-1380794310″]

You can hide the category filter as a whole by using this CSS:

#ee_filter_cat_default { display:none; }

Individual ones can be hidden like so {
display: none;

The number relates to the ID found in the Categories menu in the Event Espresso menu.

Please note that hiding options can be a little hit and miss depending on the browser, for example Internet Explorer will ignore the attempt to hide individual options. Not much can be done about that.
