Hide a category from the event list

Hi guys,

1) I’d like to hide the ‘Online Yoga Teacher Training’ category & event from the event listing page and the Calendar:

We need this event and category to remain current so the registration form is active, but don’t want it to appear in the events listing.

2) We would also prefer that no ‘Date’ is listed for this as it is an ongoing event so the dates are irrelevant.

Hi Ingrid,

The event_list and espresso_calendar category parameters do not have a filter to exclude a specific category at this time. I can suggest creating a new category, and assigning the events you’d like to appear on a page by using the [EVENT_LIST] category parameter on a separate page (for the event list), and add the category parameter for the calendar. Note that the [EVENT_LIST] shortcode should not replace the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode. See the shortcode documentation for more info:
Calendar shortcode documentation can be read here:
Date entries can be selectively hidden with CSS. As an example, this will hide the date from the list for an event with the ID of 1:

#event_date-1 {display:none;}
