  • Update on my question: I could find out how to do it, but I’m still stuck on 1 thing.

    With this text you create the titel above the events in the url categories:


    But I need to change this title to the month where in the events are. For example you’ve got 10 events, 2 fall in June, 5 in Juli and 3 in August. I want to see each event grouped in a month.

    Hi Niels,

    I’m not 100% sure I follow what you need to do. Am I right in thinking you want to find out and display the number of events shown by the #_CATEGORYNEXTEVENTS placeholder?

    Euh sorry I don’t understand what #_CATEGORYNEXTEVENTS exactly means. I want to show all events in a categorie and split them up monthly. But I’m stuck on how to split them up for each month.

    Maybe I need to give you some more info, so normally when you click on a event button you will see the page events from event manager. There you see for example all the events split up for each month. This I want to create on the categorie page from one of my categories, because I don’t want to see them all at once, I want to see just the events from 1 categorie. For example in the settings from ‘events’, you can adjust the grouping effect with a button, you can switch, between, group by days, weeks, months, years and etc. But this option, you don’t have with the settings from ‘categories’ and that’s my problem. I already copied the layout from the normal event settings, but I can’t control the group sorting. Or do I need to filter by categories on my event page? But I don’t know how to do that. So I got 2 options, find how to sort a group for each month or find how to filter all my events to 1 specific categorie.

    I hope this explains my situation better 🙂

    I think this is what you’re looking for:

    [events_list_grouped category=1]

    Just replace 1 with correct category ID.

    No, not really, at least I see the events grouped now, but again, it shows all the events but now it sorts all the events from the ID I gave but under all those sorted events it shows the events from my other categorie and they aren’t sorted. So now I still got 2 problems, on bouth category pages it shows the same. Because I cant ajust the ID categorie for another page and under all the good sorted events, the events from my other categorie are shown not sorted.

    What page are you using the shortcode above on? Can you post a link?

    This is a picture, how my result looks like:

    I used the shortcode at the event settings, on the part ‘formatting’, inside ‘event categories’ at the line ‘Single category page format’.

    Inside that line I putted this: #_CATEGORYNOTES<h3>[events_list_grouped category=54]</h3>#_CATEGORYNEXTEVENTS

    So the problem at this stage, if I understand correctly, is just that you can’t dynamically set the category ID?

    I’m also in contact with a colleague of you if I’m right, on the proForum about this:

    I hope you can read it.

    Yes indeed, I can’t dynamically set the category ID, but your colleague send me this:

    [events_list_grouped category=”54″ scope=”future” mode=”monthly”]
    [events_list_grouped category=”38″ scope=”future” mode=”monthly”]

    If you’re wondering where I putted this code: settings > formatting > event categories > Single category page format

    Normally this should do the trick, but when I do this, I got all my events sorted on both pages and after all my sorted events, I get out of nowhere 4 double events that aren’t sorted. Normally I only got 8 events in total, but I’ve got 12 on each page now.

    So my goal is still the same:

    I’ve got 2 pages, on each page I have 1 categorie (called categoryID 54 and 38). My categoryID 54 should have 3 events sorted monthly and my categoryID 38 should have 5 events sorted monthly.

    I hope this explains it

    I think this is exactly what I’m trying to do. I have the Events page grouping set to monthly and it works perfectly. However, my events will only be viewed by category (which is a location). I want to group the events by month on each Single Category Page. How can I do that?

    This is what I want:

    on this page:

    Thank you!

    aself, maybe you can try my last suggestion from this thread –

    Thank you Angelo! It worked perfectly.
