    Hi

    I need to add an additional query to essential grid plugin to show events that are in the future. I can get it all working in ascending order but don’t know the query I need to add to stop showing old events.

    I have tried the following but not really up to speed on wp queries frankly

    $query = new WP_Query( ‘_event_start_date=is_future’ );

    Many thanks, the plugin is working very nicely otherwise.

    Hi,

    Just to clarify: Are you using an Events Manager shortcode to display the events, or a custom WP Query?

    The essential grid can show the events by date order ascending, figured that bit out so I don’t have to write a query for that, however I need the specific query in addition to what essential grid (its auto written a query I guess behind the scenes) is doing to show only events that are happening on a given day or in the future.

    I’m almost there but I’m rubbish with queries. Essential grid calls it an additional parameter, therefore I need a query for this process please?

    Do you need it for a specific date or for any date in the future?

    So I have an events page and that page should not show events that have already occurred.

    So events that occur today and all those in the future, that’s the query I need.

    Hello jimf8! I am looking for the same solution. I am showing Events Manager events using Essential Grid plugin. I have an additional category “Featured Events” created within Events Manager. I can select this category in Essential Grid, but the featured events will still be shown when the event is past. So I must edit every event (the category) after it is over.

    Do you have a solution now?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Did anyone find a solution to this yet? I am also trying to find a parameter query that will only shoe events today or later. Thanks

    You’d need to use the events_list with the scope attribute set to future:

    Shortcodes

    I am also using the Essential Grid plug-in to display the events from Event Manager. (as is chrissy264 and jimf81) Should I be able to enter [events_list scope=”future”] in the additional parameters of my grid?

    I’m not sure – I’m not familiar with Essential Grid – but you’d need to add the shortcode to the same place you define the content.

    I think this is Ailsa who left a comment n my you tube video about this. I got some answer from the essential grid people.

    This is what I added to the functions.php file. You need to change the grid alias number. In my case below I have a query for future events, on 2 grids and a query to stop caching (I had some issues with the grid so you may need this too). You may need it all or choose which bit you need.

    add_filter(‘essgrid_query_caching’, ‘eg_disable_caching’, 10, 2);

    function eg_disable_caching($do_cache, $grid_id){ //disable caching for the particular grid
    if($grid_id == 43 || $grid_id == 48 || $grid_id == 50){ //replace 1 with your desired grid id
    return false;
    }
    return true;
    }

    add_filter(‘essgrid_get_posts’, ‘eg_modify_query’, 10, 2);

    function eg_modify_query($query, $grid_id){
    if($grid_id == 43 || $grid_id == 48){ //replace 1 with your desired grid id
    $query[‘meta_query’] = array( ‘key’ => ‘_start_ts’, ‘value’ => current_time(‘timestamp’), ‘compare’ => ‘>=’, ‘type’=>’numeric’ );
    $query[‘meta_key’] = ‘_start_ts’;
    $query[‘meta_value’] = current_time(‘timestamp’);
    $query[‘meta_value_num’] = current_time(‘timestamp’);
    $query[‘meta_compare’] = ‘>=’;
    }

    if($grid_id == 50){ //replace 1 with your desired grid id
    $query[‘meta_query’] = array( ‘key’ => ‘_start_ts’, ‘value’ => current_time(‘timestamp’), ‘compare’ => ‘<=’, ‘type’=>’numeric’ );
    $query[‘meta_key’] = ‘_start_ts’;
    $query[‘meta_value’] = current_time(‘timestamp’);
    $query[‘meta_value_num’] = current_time(‘timestamp’);
    $query[‘meta_compare’] = ‘<=’;
    }

    return $query;
