Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Display next event

  • Resolved GnorthernGnome



    I’m trying to display the name and date of the next event with a certain tag. I’m not bothered if I have to use PHP, as it’s used within a template, or shortcode to achieve it but I can’t seem to get the right call at the moment.

    Any help would be appreciated a whole lot, been trying to get this to work for a while now 😛

    ~ Cheers

  • Hi,

    Sounds like you need something like:

    [events_list limit=1]
    #_EVENTNAME (date info)

    Depending on how you want to display it, there are a few placeholder options for the date:


    @caimin_nwl: Hi, thanks for the answer, looks pretty good 😀 Here I was thinking I couldn’t use that option with a limit=1 attribute, so nice to see you can. Is there a way of filtering the returned value to be the next event, i.e. the next available event temporally?
    Also, could I filter the output to only include events with a certain tag?

    That should always return the next event, as it shows upcoming events in chronological order.


    @philipjohn: Excellent! Have to admit, haven’t had the time yet to try it out but that is great news 🙂
    Now, the last piece of the puzzle, can I filter by tag?

    Yes, like this:

    [events_list limit=1 tag="tag1,tag2"]
    #_EVENTNAME (date info)

    @phillipjohn and @caimin_nwl, if I am understanding this thread correctly, the default setting to display/list events “should” start with the next upcoming event? And not the latest scheduled event?

    The reason I am asking, is a page I created, I have been trying to figure out a way to just show the next event (using the default settings).

    See here:

    It is displaying the July first, when I think it should be showing the next upcoming event in June.

    Anyways, any advice you can provide on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
