Events Calendar for events in category from selection form (2 posts)

    Hello. I'm very new to WordPress (been using it for 2 days so far) and I am loving it!

    However I am trying to get wp-calendar to display the full graphical calendar with just events in a specific category.

    Now I now I can just place the following code in a page:
    {events_calendar; categories="4"}

    This works fine, but... the category needs to come from a drop down selection box full of category names.

    How can I do this? I know I can convert a name to a category id by using:
    get_cat_id("catname")
    but I have no idea how I can get that id into the events_calendar tag.

    I hope that makes some sense. Any ideas?

    At the moment this is not possible using these tags. I'll consider to make some of the filter parameters available as GET parameters. Maybe i can bring this feature in the upcomming version.
