So I've been messing with this for hours and hours and hours ...
I have a custom homepage where I want to pull the next upcoming event in an event category. I'll admit I know this is a hack job but I've tried everything ... HELP!
It is a custom homepage ... unfortunately using the shortcodes doesn't allow me to pull the information that I'm wanting.
Basically the idea is to pull the same information that I'm pulling for the other I have one for each category pulling the most recent post with a thumbnail, excerpt, and title.
You can see above that the third column should be the "event" area ... I can even get it to pull the excerpt and the featured image... but it pulls the last one posted not the next upcoming event. which is what I'm wanting.
