I'm using "Advanced Custom Fields" along with "Custom Post Type UI" to create events on my site. Everything works fine and the templates are in place however I can't get the posts to display properly in the default calendar widget.
At the moment the posts are filtered by publishing date. However, for my purposes, I need them shown by the date of the event itself – not the day I created the post. I've already got a custom field called "event_date" that's stored in yymmdd format. With that said, is there a way to overwrite the default behavior of the calendar widget to sort by this field?
If not is there a plugin that might help me accomplish this?
