[resolved] Display a single event page, "next event" page? (6 posts)

    The main content well on my category landing page for "Events" needs to display the single event information page for the next upcoming event.

    Ideally, I'd like to write a single function call to return an array with all the stored data for the next upcoming event. I can parse out the page from there.

    The details to accomplish this are aggressively fighting my noggin; and it has me feeling pretty dumb after several hours of scouring this plugin. But at least it's Friday.

    Anyone out there kind enough to share some tips on how to accomplish this function? I'm trying to avoid writing new DB queries, but that's my next step if this isn't already built-in somewhere.

    Here's some visual support on this concept:

    Or does anyone know a solution that would fit this issue better?

    I like the features of this plugins, but if we can't display events on demand, it's not gonna work for it.

    Hmm... well, this just doesn't look like it's going to happen. Very disappointed; I like everything else about this plugin.

    Might try something like this with the Meetup API.

    this is fairly simple if you check the documentation theres a few ways to do this.

    Nothing in the documentation outlines the potential of parsing the next event detail as a default content on the events page. Only lists, calendars and locations.

    My site receives over 40 million page views per year. Performance is critical, so I'm not going to hack something together and hope it holds up. There's either a native method built into the framework for this, or I best move on.

    Preference is always to support the open source community, and donate when a resource is executed in our commercial deployments. Despite being a very good tool within it's strengths, perhaps this plugin is not quite ready for prime time.

    Keep it up, though, Marcus, you're ahead of the curve in this space.
