Ticket #245782 Public

Would like to create a shortcode for all sub categories within a single event type category

Hi, I’m basically trying to do what was requested in this prior support ticket from 2017. Was a solution for this ever created?


I have two main event type categories

event type 1 = “for parents”
event type 2 = “for providers”

I would like to show the “for parents” event calendar on one page using a shortcode, and the “for providers” event calendar on another page.

I figured if I used these two shortcodes it would give me what I want.

For Parents:
[add_eventon cal_id=”1″]

For Providers:
[add_eventon cal_id=”2″]

Apparently both shortcodes still show all events whether the categories selected are in event type 1 or event type 2.

I don’t want to have to update the calendar each time the client adds a category, as was mentioned in the above post.

Could you help me find the best route to accomplish this?

      cal id is not used for your needs

      it would be handy to have wp-admin access so we can see your set up have you put the providers event type as 1 or 2 for example 

      this info allows us to give you the correct info instead of the generalised video below
