Category shortcodes not working on EM version 5 (5 posts)

    Two questions related to categories on Events Manager after I updated to EM version 5

    Category shortcode no longer seem to work.
    In EM version 4, I used the shortcode [events_list category=1], this now returns the text "No events" when I use it. I've tried the category name as well eg. [events_list category="sprint-triathlon-3"], but all I get is a full list of events from all categories.

    I can't set the Events listing page as the parent of another page. Using EM version 4 I had a series of child pages listing each category. The main page listed all 200+ events, whereas the child pages only listed 40 or so event in each category.
    Event listing page http://www.irishtriathlon.com/index.php/race-calendar/
    Category listing page http://www.irishtriathlon.com/index.php/race-calendar/2012-sprint-triathlons/
    The category listing now returns a 404 error. Plus when I go in to edit the clild page, it will not let me make the main event listing page as a parent.

    Any pointers would be appreciated.

    I'm guessing that problem 2 about the child pages now working is due to the new seo friendly event pages are now child pages of the events page.

    I still haven't found out why [events_list category=1] won't work or a work around it?
