Widget, How to Display Upcoming Events (4 posts)

    Let's assume today is the 16th of September.

    I have three events.
    1) House Party : October 4th.
    2) Birthday Week: Sept 12th - 16th
    3) Date Night : Sept 16th

    -------------------------------------------
    I want to display
    [Current Events ]
    Birthday Week ( Now thru Sept 16th )
    Date Night (Sept 16th)

    [Upcoming Events]
    House Party (Oct 4th)

    --------------------------------------------

    If I set....
    Are current events past events? (No)

    And I create two widget,
    1) one for [Current Events] with the Scope set to "Today"
    2) one for [Upcoming Events] with the Scope to "Future"

    I get this ISSUE.
    Birthday Week: Sept 12th - 16th shows up on both, with the
    start date for Current, and the end Date for Upcoming.

    [Current] as Birthday Week (Sept 12th), Date Night (Sept 16th)
    [Upcoming] as Birthday Week (Sept 16th) * This should not appear in my opinion.

    --------------------------------------------

    basically, I think if the event is current, it should not display in the future scope.

    now... if I then
    set "Are current events past events?" (Yes)

    I get...
    [Current] Nothing
    [Upcoming] Nothing

    for my Birthday Week Event

    Thoughts on how to get my specific case to work?

    Also...in the widget there is a bug...if you set the scope dropdown, it doesn't remember after you save the widget...

    its looks like you have a point there in the meantime you can also use text widget then use shortcodes instead like `[events_list scope="future" format="
    <li>#_EVENTLINK</li>
    "]` you just have to play with general arguments and or placeholders.

    Thanks man..

    I'll do it the shortcode way or with the function call.

    Forgot about that one, but, i think the case should still be accounted for in the widget.

    am seeing the widget bug, will fix.

    if you can code, you can create your own custom scope:
