Filter events in [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS]

Currently I’m using EE4 and WP User Integration in my clients’ site.
I want to display the events with ‘seminar’ category only, but I don’t know how.
I copied content-espresso_my_events-event_section.template.php in my child theme, and trying to filter $event with the category, but I’m not sure how to do it.

Can you please help me with this problem?
Waiting for your support.
Thank you.

Hi there,

We have a filter on the query used to pull the objects in for the My Events section so rather than doing the above (which is after the add-on has pulled the events) I recommend using the FHEE__Espresso_My_Events__getTemplateObjects__query_args filter for this.

You can see an example of that filter in use here:

To only use events from a specific category, you’ll need something like:

$query_args[0]['Term_Taxonomy.term_id'] = 999;

Where 999 is the ID of your ‘seminar’ category and you would use that in place of line 20 of that snippet.

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

Thanks for your support!
It really helped much to me, but can you help me one step more?

Can you show 2 or more categories separately with [ESPRESSO_MY_EVENTS]?
If an attendee purchased events in ‘seminar’ category and ‘event’ category, I would like to show them separately in their my page.
Like this.

detail of event in ‘seminar’ category
detail of event in ‘seminar’ category

detail of event in ‘event’ category
detail of event in ‘event’ category

I really appreciate your support.
Thank you.

We don’t have an option to do that within the add-on and if that’s what you are trying to achieve then the above snippet I gave you for your original question won’t work as it limits the events returned from the query to a specific category.

You’ll need to look into how loop-espresso_my_events-event_section.template.php loops over each event (in an array called $objects) and outputs each individual event using the content-espresso_my_events-event_section.template.php template. To do the above you’ll need to either filter the $objects array so you can organize the events into 2 separate categories and loop over each for each section or use the main query for one set of events and then a custom query for another to do something similar.

This isn’t something I can walk you through but if you are comfortable with PHP you can take a look at our model system here:–Model-System

Which makes pulling in various EE data relatively simple.
