Events Manager
[resolved] Can I have TWO event pages on my blog? (6 posts)

    Can I have two events pages on my blog? Like one page that displays events for the "teenagers" category, and another for "adults" category?

    It doesn't look like multisite is what I need. Perhaps I'm just overlooking the obvious?

    TIA,
    /jeff

    how about creating two category instead then create another page with shortcode loaded which is filtered by categories teens/adult. why multisite is not applicable?

    Thank you, agelonwl. I didn't know that I could use shortcodes to EM-enable a second page on the same site. Super cool.

    I haven't got the shortcodes working right yet. Do you know if the EM settings page (e.g. <host>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=events-manager-options) creates shortcodes on its targeted Events Page? If so, perhaps I could use it as a 'wizard' to teach me how to properly configure the shortcodes, assuming that there's a way to see what it generated (which I cannot find). Thoughts?

    As for multisite, I only have one site hosted via BlueHost. Despite having a single-site, I still looked at configuring it anyway but found that I don't have the option of Network Admin logon. Oh well.

    Thanks again,
    /jeff

    Thanks again for responding, agelonwl. I had reviewed the content at those links twice before my initial post.

    I am a dev but WP is not my core competency; I'm helping someone else out with their site. I was looking for quick solution so perhaps I wouldn't need to become as deeply fluent as someone like yourself.

    So, do I need to become deeply fluent too, or can I leverage the EM Settings page to teach me the write shortcodes to use (or similar solution)?

    I figured it out with your help, agelonwl. My primary problem in using the shortcodes was that I failed to categorize the events, even though I had created the categories. Doh!

    After fixing that, shortcodes worked fine. I set up my design like this:
    * First Event page: used shortcodes.
    * Second Event page: used shortcodes

    I then configured the "Events Page" in EM settings to go a third page that's not directly accessible (e.g. not linked, and not in the navbars). This page is only used to show event details when someone clicks an event on either of the two event pages. This seems like a cleaner design.

    Anyway, thsx!
