Where to find event category ID?

Hi folks!
I want to know that how can I find the event category id in EE4?

My shortcode of EE3 is this
[ESPRESSO_VENUE_EVENTS event_category_id=”Courses” limit=”20″ max_days=”365″]
I need to know the new shortcode of EE4 in place of the previous shortcode of EE3.

Hi there,

Within EE4, venues are a custom post type so we use the slug to identify them.

So for the above you can use [ESPRESSO_EVENTS category_slug=courses], assuming your category slug is ‘courses’.

You can find these in Event Espresso -> Events -> Categories (tab).

That will list your event categories and give you the shortcode you need to use to call them.
