Re-order recurring events on Event registration page?

I have three recurring events displayed correctly with drop downs on the Event Registration page using the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] short code.

The Events are weekly. One on Monday, one on Thursday and one on Saturday. The default sort order appears to be by ID.

Unfortunately this results in the events being displayed Monday, Saturday, Thursday. Possibly because that was the order in which they were originally created?

Does anyone know a way to change the sort order for this page? I could rename the events with numbers in front of them but I’d still need a way to change the order by title. I don’t think using the order_by attribute works with the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] short code when using the REM plugin.

The page is here if you are interested:

The default action here is for the events to be ordered by date, soonest first. This looks like it is ordering alphabetically by day.

We are looking to add in an ascending/descending option in the next update, which I believe should help out here.

In the meantime the only other workaround I can think of would be to use the [EVENT_LIST order_by=event_name] which of course isn’t ideal.

Hi Dean

I am running EE 3.1.26.P and REM 1.1.7 I don’t think that shortcode works with the recurring events plugin. Or at least it doesn’t on my website.

Thanks for the response
