Support » Plugins » [Plugin: The Events Calendar] Upcoming/past events list not showing

  • When clicking the “Event List” view neither upcoming nor previous events show up. “Calendar” view and everything else seems to work fine. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    I’m using WP 2.9.2 and plugin version 1.5.6

    Hi Rajaman,

    We found the bug that was driving this and that has been patched for 1.6.

    Hello Shane

    I’ve just updated to the new version 1.6, but the issue still exists. As before, the calendar view works fine, but neither upcoming nor past events are displayed under “Event List”. Any idea how to solve this problem?

    PS: The issue exists with both pretty and regular permalinks.

    I had the same issue and more with 1.6 so have reverted to 1.5.6.

    If I was logged in the first upcoming effect would show. But nothing would get any past or forthcoming events to appear on list.


    You experienced your issue in both 1.5.6 and 1.6, correct? Can you post a link? Also, are you using custom view templates (list.php or single.php) ?


    I see the same behaviour in both 1.5.6 and 1.6.
    I am using custom view templates (list.php or single.php) but only change I made was to get the header and footer from my theme into the page. I think the way header and footer are called may have changed since I hacked the view templates – maybe I need to revise the changes – will investigate tomorrow.


    Yes, I’ve had the same problem in 1.5.6 and 1.6. I’ve been using custom view templates in 1.5.6, but upgrading to 1.6 overwrote them and I’m now using the standard templates. Here’s a link to the calendar view:

    I’m still not able to reproduce this, but just a tip for now:
    instead of hacking the view files in our plugin, you can make custom versions of list.php, gridview.php, single.php, and/or table.php, place them in wp-content/themes/<your-theme>/events/ and the plugin will use those. That way they don’t get overwritten every time you upgrade.


    Thanks – I have installed 1.6.2 and it all works for me.

    Revised versions of list.php, gridview.php, single.php, and/or table.php had been introduced at some point so my versions in the theme folder were not consistant with the main versions in the plugin.

    The method of calling the other parts of the theme to make a page has changed so I have had to review my custom files in the theme.

    Also I have WP Super Cache on my site. It is probably worth reminding people to clear the cache when updating especially if they have custom files in the theme.

    After logging out of WordPress admin I see that the list view of events still does not work if the site visitor is not logged in.

    @steve Weblin and @rajaman

    This one’s killer! rajaman’s Event List and Calendar urls look normal. Steve, yours are a little more rare, but in my mind should still work. What are your permalinks settings? Also, upon activating the plugin, the category “Events” is created. Did you by chance change that category name?

    Feeling around here…


    Permalinks are set to

    I already had Event as a category and your plugin uses Events.

    I have tried the toggling use pretty URLs. With pretty URLs on things are worse I get “404 page not found” rather than a page with no content. (The top and bottom of the page appear but the post or posts are missing)

    Landing Page

    my categories look like this:

    I am using the All in One SEO plugin might that be conflicting but why only when I am logged on?

    Which other plugins are in play here? If you are seeing an empty loop for the upcoming/past pages, then it is possible that another plugin is interfering with the posts_where or posts_join filters which tell the plugin which posts are part of the upcoming/past loops.

    Can you try disabling some other plugins one by one to see if there is a specific plugin that may be conflicting with ours?



    I had the same issue and it turns out the conflict was with the WPML Multilingual CMS plug-in. I’m in a bit of a pickle here because my site is bilingual so I need the WPML on, but there are so many events in my calendar I need to use the event list view.

    Any suggestions?



    @justinendler, @kelseydamas, @muaythai

    Finally! I’ve figured out my problem: it’s the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin. Everything works except when the WPML plugin is activated the event list view doesn’t work anymore. Does anyone know how to fix this?



    Hi guys,

    I also recognised this problem with the WPML plugin. Are there already people who found a solution? The calendar is working properly, it’s just the event list that fails.

    Short side question: how can you increase the amount of events showed in the event list (when it works)?

    Thanks a lot!
