Ticket #28057 Public

Sorting Options


what do I have to do to Show the Event calender and filter according to a custom field?

For example, I want to generate a shortcode which Shows  the calender  only a specific Artist (all Events where a specific custom field ist named “abc”. )

greetings, verena

      do you mean event type?

      event types are like categories and so for example an artist could be an event type and you could have a calendar only showing that artists events

      set up a new event type- and then get the id number

      then in the eventon calendar generator their is a field to add that ID number and the event will show only that event type

      or if I am not even close to answering what you are after please clarify

      Hello thank you for your Reply.

      yes that is what I meant. Sorry about my english.

      I Need a sorting Option – where I am allowed to Show all Events from one Artist AND no past Events.

      So visitors should see all Programs, which are played in future by one Artist.

      And another Point ist, all PAST Events, played by one Artist.

      Unfortunately I could not find “Event types”.

      in the wordpress dashboard

      near the top is events and scroll down to the bottom is eventon

      • mouse over events and you will see event types and click this and you can essentially create event categories

      and then in the shortcode generator you can restrict calendars to show an event types ID number only

      do you mean “Multi Data Type1”?

      So what dave is suggesting is this http://www.myeventon.com/documentation/how-to-use-event-types-to-do-more/

      You are not able to filter events by custom fields but you can use event type categories though. Multi data types are not what you need. This is what you use MDT for http://www.myeventon.com/documentation/setup-use-multi-data-types/

      But hope event type filtering will suffice your need.
