[Plugin: Events Manager] Event Categories

  • Is there a way to set up these events to be displayed the same way a WordPress category does? I’m not sure if it’s just something that can’t be done or if I set this whole thing up incorrectly.

    For example, my other navigation links are like this: (mydomain.com/category/football or mydomain.com/category/baseball, etc.) but my events are listed on a page.

    Not only would I prefer the event posts be displayed the same as my default WordPress category style, but my pagination plugin also displays differently on pages than it does on archive/category pages.

    Anyone know if its possible to do so?

  • you can override formats at Settings > Pages and Settings > Formats/Layouts

    Actually, you should check out your pages tab in settings. You can prevent EM from taking over by not using an events page, enabling archives. Same for categories and not overriding category pages with formats.

    Thanks very much. This is great. So far from your instruction I have the event posts now displaying just like every other post in normal category format.

    One problem I have is that I now have the event posts showing up under /category/events, but I am unable to assign the event posts to a subcategory of my main events category because they don’t show up in my main post list. Is that possible, or can those posts only be assigned an event manager category?

    The other question I have now is if its possible to order these posts by event date.

    1.) event categories aren’t taxonomies, you could use functions like register_taxonomy for post type (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_taxonomy) to add normal post categories to events.

    2. Settings > Pages > Events List/Archives

    I guess I learned that the hard way that you shouldn’t mess with permalink slugs to try and duplicate the whole category/name thing. I not only messed up all my events, but my other categories (unrelated to plugin) went belly up as well.

    Oh well. I don’t quite understand it all, so I guess I’ll just put it back to how it was on a page for now (if I can remember) and keep playing around or something.

    Thanks again for the suggestions/help.
