    I don’t find any means to make categories of volunteer opportunities. We need two distinct categories for volunteers to search: women and men. Have you run into this before, and any solutions to offer? (I didn’t find anything in the support threads)

    I’ve considered using two WP PageBuilder’Posts’ modules. Thoughts? Thanks

  • On the same question, are there additional shortcodes or ways to modify the ‘flexible opps’ shortcode, such as numbering the items from the list you want to display? [flexible_volunteer_opps ids=”2,5,7″].

    Can I get a complete list of your shortcodes? Or where to find them. Thank you again!

    Great questions Susan. I’ll answer each individually.

    There isn’t currently a built-in way to categorize the volunteer opportunities. If you’re comfortable with PHP you can add a system to handle this, but it would take some coding.

    If you’re looking for a way to handle this manually, the best approach would be to create a page and create links to each opportunity with headings for each “category”. It’s a much more manual process, but would allow you to categorize the opportunities as needed.

    There are only two shortcodes, both have been kept simple to make them easy to use. They are [one_time_volunteer_opps] to display one-time opportunities and [flexible_volunteer_opps] to display flexible opportunities. There currently aren’t ways to customize the output, although that’s something we’re considering doing in the future if more people need that flexibility.

    I hope that’s helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks a lot Susan! We really appreciate your kind words.

    Glad to hear it’ll work out.

    It would be great to have a category option which will then allow users easily be directed to only those opportunities they are interested in via a shortcode.

    I completely agree Susan. I’ve added a note for our team about what you’re looking for and if enough people request we add categorization we’ll hopefully be able to include it.

    Thanks a ton for the feedback.

    It’s important to have shortcodes.

    Thanks @thomasrendleman. Can you expand a little on what you mean? We have two shortcodes that you can use with the plugin. If you’re having a separate issue please open another support thread so we can deal with your problem separately.

    @iroller, I’m sorry for calling you Susan earlier. I missed that the latest response came from another author. Thanks again for your feedback.
