Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » ACF Relationship field: past events only sort of work

  • Events Calendar version: 4.9.6
    ACF Pro version: 5.8.3

    I have a page template that has an ACF relationship field specifically for events from The Events Calendar. By default, future events appear just fine. Past events would not appear until I added this filter to my functions.php. So thankfully that works. And when I choose a couple of events, they move from left to right as normal and saving the page does save those events.

    But when the page reloads, all the past events appear back on the left side whether they were selected or not.

    So past events can now be chosen, but it doesn’t show them selected on page reload, which can lead to some confusion for the user.

    Interestingly enough, if I disable The Events Calendar plugin, the events still show up in the Relationship field and show as being selected after saving and reloading. So I believe there’s something in the plugin that’s interfering with the query the Relationship field uses.

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey @faeldray,

    I’m having the exact same problem. I’ve added in the filter to return all events in a relationship field, but whenever I reload the page, the events don’t seem to “stick”. This results in having to update the events every time I update the post.

    This does seem to have to do with The Events Calendar and the way it filters past events.

    Any help would be really appreciated!!
