[Plugin: Events Manager] Display 1 entry for recurring event in list?

  • I’ve got a front page at http://stlseniorevents.com/
    that pulls the next 4 events with category ‘Featured’ and shows their Event Image and title/date.

    Here is my code:

    EM_Events::output(array('limit'=>4, 'scope'=>'future', 'orderby'=>'start_date', 'category'=>42,
    					'format'=>'
    					<div class="img-item">
    						<a href="#_EVENTURL">
    							#_EVENTIMAGE
    							<p>#_NAME - #M, #j</p>
    						</a>
    					</div>
    					'
    					));

    Is there a way to allow a recurring event (master) to be set as Featured and displayed once as opposed to every time the event reoccurs as it currently acts?

    An additional hope would be that the date display could list the start and end date of the recurrence.

    recurring – there’s an attribute for that http://wp-events-plugin.com/documentation/event-search-attributes/

    Yes adding that works but then all non-recurring events go away. Also the description of the 2nd recurring attribute does not quite explain what it’ll do.

    you probably have to write some sort of conditional yourself then, check the plugin site tutorials for that sort of thing.

    I just wanted to add my support for this feature. I’m working on a buddypress site where we have many groups and many of them are going to create daily events that repeat several years into the future. It looks kind of silly to show an event number in the thousands when you view a group’s events. It’d be great to count recurring events as only one.
