Hi,
in Events Calendar I’ve been looking for a button to reset category selection and show all events to no avail.
Looking forward to learn how to achieve this.
Thanks,
Lukas

Hi Lukas,

I may be misunderstanding your question here, but within the category dropdown for the calendar is a ‘Show all’ option, which shows all events from all categories, is that now what you are looking for?

If not, can you link me to the calendar page you are viewing so I can take a look?

Hi Tony,
thanks for your reply. Rather I wasn’t clear enough. I’m referring to the category legend buttons, not the filter dropdowns. Imho there should be a ‘reset’ or ‘select all’ button. https://www.screencast.com/t/0D3yf73MG5v
Maybe there is a solution I missed to find?
Best,
Lukas

please excuse me, I found another missing thing: imho the category buttons should be highlighted when selected.

OK, solved #1 with a parent category “all events”!

I checked into this and your right, we currently don’t have a ‘reset’ button for those categories button. I can create a feature request to look into adding a button to reset the filters in a future version of the calendar, for the time being (as you’ve already found) you can use a parent category containing all other categories to show all of the events.

please excuse me, I found another missing thing: imho the category buttons should be highlighted when selected.

The same code for the above would need to be refactored to add this in so I’ll also add this as a feature request for consideration.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for considering my inputs as feature requests.
The parent category workaround is ok for me; maybe you can mention it in the documentation.
Best,
Lukas
