Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Long events display on multiple dates in full calendar view

  • Resolved chrislondon

    I’m building a site for a club that has nighttime events. So they start at 10pm and finish at 3am the next morning. In the full calendar view, it would make sense for them to appear on date they start only (eg if there’s an event that starts at 10pm on 1 August, it should only appear in the cell for 1 August).

    In my settings, I have set ‘Show long events’ to No.

    Shouldn’t that stop the event being shown on every date it spans?

    At the moment, in full calendar view, two entries appear for an event that starts at 10pm and finishes 3am – one on the day it starts and one on the day it ends. I think that will confuse people.

    Am I doing something wrong? Am I right that setting ‘Show long events’ to No should override this? Or have I misunderstood what that setting is for?

    Thanks for your help!

    hi,

    at the moment WP FullCalendar shows long events or spanning events by default not unlike EM default full calendar which you can disable or enable this using [events_calendar long_events=1] (1=enable 0=disable)

    Ah, of course. I’ve been using that shortcode for months and I didn’t read it properly. That’s so straightforward. Thanks!

    I have the same formatting need for musicians that play past midnight.
    I am able to manipulate the event lists to show only the start time by editing Default Event List Format: i.e. substituting in #_12HRSTARTIME

    		<td>
                    #_EVENTDATES<br/>
                    #_12HSTARTTIME
                </td>

    but there is no equivalent for example #_EVENTSTARTDATE which would be great to have.
    I read up on using a prefix # or @ but I can’t really understand that or where it goes.
