    How do I set up a filter by category option like on this site:

    http://www.delawarehospice.org/news-events/events-calendar/

    Trying to set this up on another site. When I use the search feature, to search by category it says no events, but I know that there are.

    you can try to add shortcode [events_calendar category="x"] where x is the events category id

    Thanks. But wouldn't that only list the events in x category? I want all events listed and then an option to filter the list based on event type, that the user would select from a dropdown list.

    I think what Angelo was suggesting is that you could that shortcode on your page to show a calendar that contains only events from the chosen category.

    You'd need to do some custom coding to make the go button on your filter dropdown generate a page that contains the category ID in the URL, which can then be picked up and used by the shortcode.
