Hi there,

The topics on this forum self close after a few weeks of inactivity. The code does work if it’s added to a plugin, the plugin is activated, and the correct event category ID is swapped into line 19 of the example.

Thank you Josh – we created a specific plugin for EE4 Customization and added the code snipet to it – trying to hide 1 category but the event still displays in the calendar.

You can do this instead (only works on the calendar)

function eecal_custom_category_restrict(){
    if(is_user_logged_in()){
        return;
    }
    wp_add_inline_script( 
        'espresso_calendar',
        'function my_hide_category() {
            var cat = "category-slug"; //change this to match category slug
            jQuery("#espresso_calendar ." + cat).hide();
        };
        jQuery( document ).ready(function($) {
            $( document ).ajaxComplete(my_hide_category);
        });'
    );
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'eecal_custom_category_restrict', 20 );

Thank you Josh this code does work in the Calendar – what if I need to hide 2 categories? Should I create a parent category for the two and use the parent instead of the category slug?

A slight modification to the code will allow you to add more categories.

You change these two lines:

var cat = "category-slug"; //change this to match category slug
 jQuery("#espresso_calendar ." + cat).hide();

to:

var cat1 = "category-slug"; //category slug
var cat2 = "other-category-slug"; //other category
jQuery("#espresso_calendar ." + cat1 + ", #espresso_calendar ." + cat2).hide();

Thank you Josh – this worked for the Calendar as you mentioned.

Could this code be reused with some modification for the Table View plugin?

You can use this one for the Table view plugin:
