All-in-One Event Calendar
Multiple Taxonomy Filters? (8 posts)

    Hello there,

    I am creating a community calendar by which I want viewers to be able to filter based on three factors:
    1) The type of event (class, workshop, performance, etc)
    2) The topic of the event (music, dance, visual art, etc)
    3) The region the event is happening in (metro area, north of city, east of city, etc)

    So I set up Categories for the event type. And then made tags such as "Location - N. City", "Location - Metro", and "Topic - Music", "Topic - Dance", and so on.

    I thought that the filters could be set by Category AND Tags, such that people could toggle multiple taxonomies and drill down/filter down the results to just what they are looking for. But it looks like they can be filtered by Category OR Tag, thus INCREASING the results with each toggle. Am I correct in this?

    So for instance, I have A, B, and C categories, and I have X, Y, and Z tags.

    I thought if I chose A & Z, I would get only events which were BOTH A and Z. But it looks like I get all events which are EITHER A OR Z.

    Is there any way to cross-reference taxonomies to create more detailed filtering?

    I was working with the Events Manager plug in in my test environment up until recently, which had this ability, but there were other show-stopper limitations on that plug-in which sent me on yet another event calendar hunt. All-In-One Event Calendar is now the closest I have come to finding everything I am looking for in a calendar, except for filtering by multiple taxonomy. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful.

    Okay, I found this. I am hoping that something will actually be put into a future version.

    Okay, I have been playing with this, and it looks like I can do an AND statement between multiple tags, but not multiple categories. Not quite what I need yet...

    Yes, this is something that we want to see in the plugin - AND and OR filtering that is easy to manage either by administrators or by end users. We have it in sight and it will be included soon.

    It's funny that I received your message just while I was working on that exact feature - call it coincidence ;)
    We couldn't complete it on time for 1.8 and we had to reschedule it for 1.9 sorry for the delay and I am glad you liked the posterboard view :)

    I am so looking forward to this features. As I am planning a special project I really need multiple taxonomies.

    Any schedule available for 1.9 ?
