Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » [Plugin: The Events Calendar] Events list in chronological order

  • Resolved lucycgp


    Hello all,

    I am trying to find an answer to this but I can’t! The Events Calendar is really really good, and has helped me no end, but one thing is bugging me. How do you make events appear chronologically, so the soonest event at the top? At the moment the events list is showing in the order I posted them which looks all wrong.

    Sorry if I am repeating a question, but I cannot find the answer and have been trying to find it for a couple of hours.

    Thank you to anyone that may be able to help!

    Hey there Lucy. Have you resaved your permalinks after installing? By default they should be showing in chronological order as you’ve requested so I’m not sure why they wouldn’t be.

    Hey roblagatta! Thank you for replying so quick, and sorry for my tardy reply! I have my permalinks as /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ currently following your reply. I changed them from default to the above and unfortunately it didn’t make a difference.

    Just to be clear, it’s in the events list view on a page that are in the order of posting rather than the order of the event, and I need them in the order of the events coming soonest at the top. The widget is in the correct order and the calendar is fine too.

    Is this possible and if it is, how can I acheive this? If it’s not possible, is it possible through the paid version?

    Thank you for any help you give.


    i got the same problem as discribed above. My permalink is the same. The order of the events is sort by the date of posting. Thanks for all, Uwe

    Thanks for confirming folks. This is odd, as I’m unable to recreate it on a default 2011 install with no other plugins active; even when I used the same permalink structure you noted, I had no problems.

    It should be listing them appropriately by default…this wouldn’t change between PRO and FREE. Is it possible you guys have other plugins installed that could be conflicting here? Would you be willing to give deactivating those a shot (and reverting to the 2011 theme, if necessary) to see if the issue persists?

    Hi roblagatte,
    i deactivate all plugins but there is no change visible. I don´t know what to do.
    You can see it here:

    Is it possible, that i only see the beginning of on event, not the whole entry? Like a teaser or so.

    Hi all, thank you for your help so far, but just to confirm, I have disabled my plugins too and that doesn’t help the ordering issue.

    I have just bought the PRO version, so I really hope to get a fix on this as it does everything I need to do. My client is really happy with the function of everything, but just this one thing is standing in the way.

    Anything else you can do to help would be really appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, Lucy

    Sounds like this may be a bug with the core plugin; I’m not able to recreate, as I mentioned previously, so I’m going to have to jump into testing it myself. We’ll get this fixed for 2.0.2 (if we can identify the cause in time), or 2.0.3 if not.

    I have same problem, on wordpress 3.1.2.
    Same problem on the widget too. The order is posting date and not EventStartDate.
    I search the error, and i think is on “tribe-event-query.class.php” file, on execution of setUpcomingDisplayTypeArgs funciont, on row 135.
    I hope this help you on bug search.


    I am using The Events Calendar and am having the same problem. Oh my goodness! They are not showing chronologically, but are showing by last input. This is a HUGE HUGE problem! Does anyone have any additional updates?

    I am now going back and editing the dates published of the events so that they appear chronologically. If anyone has any updates so I don’t have to do this every time, that would be great!

    Hey guys. Sorry to hear that you’re having problems on this; we’re not sure what could be causing it but I’ve got one of our advanced devs taking a look now. They’ll be able to identify if it’s a bug that needs fixing in 2.1 and hopefully can provide a workaround in the interim.

    Guys, just wanted to follow-up on this. We’re having a really hard time recreating this on our end. Is there any chance someone would be willing to give it a shot on a default 2011 install with no other plugins active, to see if the issue persists for them? If not, we may be able to narrow down what the conflict could be.

    Hi roblagatta, i´ve no other plugins active.
