[resolved] Categories show up as archive pages (11 posts)

    Hi guys.

    First of all, thank you for making such a great plugin, some really neat and useful features here for sure, I'm undoubtedly considering going PRO.

    But I have a problem with the way category pages show up, they look like an typical archive page. Also I can't find a way to replace the "Upcoming events" text above.

    I want it to look more like the main event listing site. I am the editor of a travelguide, so I need to have a separate category for each town we cover.

    This is how it looks:
    http://mallorcaoplevelser.dk/events/categories/events-bunyola/

    I really hope some of you or the writer will help me.

    Thank you.

    Hi Angelo.

    Thank you very much for your quick response.

    So now I have changed the text, but I still don't know how to change the look of the listing, could you point out what I have to change.

    Hop to hear from you.

    Thank you.

    In the same box you can add the category related placeholders here...

    ...to create the format you need.

    Let us know if you need more help with this.

    Hi again.

    I have looked and tried most of the placeholder, I have even tried to copy all the code from the "events" formatting page to see if that would give a result, but no such luck.

    I simply want it to look like the events main page like so: http://mallorcaoplevelser.dk/events/

    Please help me.

    Thank you

    Just to clarify, what you really need is an events list that only shows events from that particular single category?

    yes, that is correct!

    I want to go from this look:

    ...to this look: http://mallorcaoplevelser.dk/events/

    ... On all category pages

    Thank you.

    try shortcode [events_list limit=10 category="x"] where x is the events category id

    It finally worked, thank you so much.

    So just to help others with the same issue...

    Don't include the eventcategory in a custom menu, but create a new page/post and insert the above written shortcode.

    Once again thank you for your great support. Rated 5.

    Best regards
