Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar Shortcode & Block » Can’t show more than 5 events

  • Resolved ruairimcnicholas


    Hi there,

    The ‘limit’ option in the shortcode works for values between 1-5, but not over that, anything past 5 and it will only display 5 events.

    This is my code:
    [ecs-list-events limit='10' thumb='true']
    The code only displays 5 events, as seen from my homepage:

    Hi @ruairimcnicholas!

    Since there’s no code in the plugin to stop the limit from being higher than 5, there’s like another plugin or possibly your theme causing the issue.

    You can determine which plugin or theme is causing the issue with the following steps:

    1. Ensure you have a backup of your site in case there are any issues when disabling/enabling plugins or your theme
    2. Disable all plugins (except The Events Calendar plugin and this plugin), and switch to a default theme like Twenty Sixteen then verify the issue is resolved
    3. Re-enable your plugins and switch back to your previous theme one by one verifying if the issue is still occurring, and note which one causes it to break

    Let me know which plugin/theme causes the issue and I may be able to come up with a fix, but you’ll also need to contact the theme or plugin author and have them fix the issue.


    I am having the same problem – shortcode will only display 5 events even though limit is set higher – was there any fix found for this? I am using customizr theme

    …actually I have solved this – a non-breaking space had snuck into the ecs-list-events shortcode before the ‘limit’ bit and had presumably rendered it unworkable. Just proves it is always worth checking in plain text. All fixed now 🙂

    Glad to hear! 🙂

    Don’t you just like it when the problems go away! 🙂
