Recurring Events Table w/ Dropdowns – Order by Date not consistent

I have EE3 and have been using the Recurring Events Table w/ Dropdowns to display lots of recurring events without any problem. However, I have one recurring event that is displaying the dates in the drop-down in no apparent order. I can’t figure out why just this one event is not showing up in date order in the drop-down.

Check out any number of the recurring events in drop-down and all are sequenced by date of event except Staff-Guided AM Tour.

Hi Lori,

The reason the dates were not in order was because the shortcode was set to override the event order. Here’s what the shortcode was on the Guided Tours page:
[EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW template_name=recurring-dropdown order_by=event_name category_identifier=guidedtours]

I changed it to include the start_date in the order_by parameter, so now it’s:
[EVENT_CUSTOM_VIEW template_name=recurring-dropdown order_by="event_name, start_date" category_identifier=guidedtours]

I also made a few edits to remove the price column since you sent in FTP credentials.
