    Hi, we are currently trying to use your plugin on a test site and we are struggling to figure out how the date determines the order in which the ‘events’ are listed… i.e you can see the 3 test events we’ve used, but the date do not seem to be in any order!?

    When trying to use the ‘future posts’ the shortcode doesn’t display anything, just ‘there are no events’?

    The date is set to d:m:y

    Ideally, we need to the feed to display the earliest date and for it to descend to the furthest date away.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    Anyone help with this? Seems unusual that an ‘Event’ plugin isn’t able to specify the dates of the events??

    Hi, I just checked the page in the link and seems it’s working fine. To change the order the events are displayed you can add to the shortcode order=”ASC” for ascendent order or order=”DESC” for descendent order. By default the [display_events] shortcode will display all the future events starting from the current date.

    I’m sorry for the late reply, but I’ve just seen it, and I didn’t get any notification.

    Hi There, thanks for getting back to me, really appreciate it.

    I’ve just added a couple more dates, and I’m still struggling to get them in order;

    http://cathedral.jabutestarea.co.uk/visit/whats-on/

    Essentially, I’d like the the closest date to appear first and then for the dates to ascend to the furthest away…

    What is the best date format to use in settings and how does it need to be formatted with each of the posts – I reckon I’m not typing it in properly!

    Many thanks!

    Hi, I just tried in my local install the same dates, with the same format, and in the same order you created them. And it’s working as expected (the closest date to appear first and then for the dates to ascend to the furthest away…). It’s very strange. I don’t know what it could be. I’ve seen on your site it’s not working like that. Maybe try to do it again. Or could be something else not related to the plugin, because for me it’s working fine. I first selected the format, then created the events, and then added the shortcode [display_events] to a page.

    Hi There, I’ve tried that and I’m not getting the correct order!? Can you let me know how you are formatting the date, in both the ‘settings’ and and example of how it is written within the event post i.e Setting = ‘Fj,Y’ Event Post= 01/01/2019 !?

    Thanks…

    Hi, in settings page the Date format is d.m.y and when you go to the single event page it displays as 27.02.19. That is, is working as it should. Let me know if you solved it.

    Yeah, I’m trying that… oddly, I’ve just noticed, in the Event Post, I’ve changed a date to 20.04.19, which I’ve saved down and remains in the fields. However, when I look at the list of events in the ‘All Events’ tabs, it is showing as 29.01.19, it doesn’t seem to be updating!?

    I just updated an event’s date, then looked at the ‘All Events’ tab and the date is updated. I don’t know what to tell you. The plugin for me it’s working as it should. It must be something else. Could be cache on your browser or something else.

    I installed and restated, which seems to have sorted the dates, but I’m still getting the December date in the middle of everything, can’t figure it out 🙁

    Hi, I tried again changing dates and formats with the same events and the list of events is still working fine. Write me through the contact form on my website (click on my profile avatar to see it).
