Recurring Events Help Needed – Further Help Requested

This topic was started here:

And it was very helpful but I need to see if this can be extended a bit further.

When the event lists on the non-calendar format like this:

[EVENT_ESPRESSO_CATEGORY event_category_id=”kids_classes”]

It runs down the page and each event is listed as a separate event. My client wants it to list the first event in the recurrence and then show each subsequent event in the “date” filed area. So an event that re-occurs 4 different times would show like this:

Date: September 4, 2012, September 11, 2012, September 18, 2012, September 15, 2012

…or something similar.

Is this possible? Even a creative solution would suffice – I’m open to ideas.

NOTE: The problem is that when each event shows as a separate event in the listing it appears that each event is registrable (even though we have the registration going to the first event) and costs $40.00.

NOTE 2: The way the event show on the calendar is fine because of the block nature of that view. This request is just when viewing a calendar category listing (textual).

This is possible. In fact, there is already a solution that exists. Look in the recurring event module plugin folder for a templates folder. Copy the event-list-display.php file over to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/templates.

The instructions in the readme will tell you to also copy the event-list.php file over, but don’t do it. That one is broken. Instead, use this one.

There is also a bit of CSS from the readme that needs to get added to your WordPress theme.

There is other thing that I think you will need to set up differently: the shortcode. Use this syntax instead:

[EVENT_LIST category_identifier=your_category_identifier show_recurrence=true]
