Events Manager
[resolved] RSS by date (ascending)? (6 posts)

    Hi
    I just updated to the latest version on my main site from v.3.something.

    It looks like the old http://site/?dbem_rss=main RSS feed address is no longer valid. I haven't found anything in the docs about a new Events Manager specific feed URL.

    And though I've currently got my events set as posts, I've found that in the posts feed they're listed in the order that they were posted - not in the order that they are going to occur. We get calendar submissions for events anywhere from the next day to a year and a half out, and it makes much more sense to display them in order of their occurance. Any chance of that happening?

    Thanks in advance.

    Correction: ?dbem_rss=main appears to be bringing in data now. Perhaps I just hadn't given it enough time to update.

    Unfortunately, it's still in the wrong order.

    by default it should be showing it in order of event date... i'd prove it with the demo site but there's an issue with the rss feed which I have to look into, but testing locally it does work :)

    I double checked all my settings, and they're set for Start Date/Ascending.

    Using ?dbem_rss=main for the feed, they're listing the last start date first.

    Could it be that I'm using a slightly older version of WP (3.3.1)? I've got some custom code elsewhere on the site that I need to change before I can safely update WP the latest. It seems unlikely that it would affect that, but you never know. I've noticed some differences in the plugin's available menu choices between the live site and the WP 3.5 test site I used for my initial testing on this version (specifically, General doesn't show Image Sizes or Admin Tools menus; Emails doesn't show Email Settings menu)

    I doubt that the older wp would affect this as it's an old and not recently modified feature, but another thing to try is using the default theme to see if that helps, in case you're using templates or custom code in your theme that messes with em.
