Need to Display Available Spaces for *Recurring* Events

I need to display the available spaces for recurring events. Problem is, the shortcode: [ATTENDEE_NUMBERS event_id=1 type=available_spaces] depends on the event ID, which applies to individual dates within the recurring event. This means that although I have embedded the code on a recurring event for which the dates have been auto-incremented, the available spaces will reflect only one specific date’s available spaces.

Is there a better way to do this? Like by changing something within the shortcode to recognize that particular date within the recurring event? Or some global setting that allows me to just turn on this feature without having to embed a zillion shortcodes?

Are you using the shortcode on an event post, an event list, or a registration page?

I am using the shortcode within the event description area (reachable via Event Espresso > Event Overview > Add New Event)

PS – Ideally, I also need the ‘available spaces’ to show within the calendar view… In trying to figure this out, I ran across the aforementioned shortcode which I embedded in the event description.

I found a fix for you:

You can add this code to one of the following:
1 – Your theme’s functions.php file. It may get overwritten the next time you update your theme.
2 – The EE custom files add-on in the custom_functions.php file.
3 – Use this blank plugin to hold the custom function.
