Support » Plugin: WP Calendar » [Plugin: WP Calendar] orderdir="desc" not working?

  • Resolved Ted Rouse


    I’m using the shortcode to display a list of past events as follows:

    {events_printlist; datefrom="2010-01-01 00:00:00"; dateto="now"; orderdir="desc"; before="<div class="eventlist">"; after="</div>"}

    The orderdir paramater doesn’t seem to be having any effect. Any ideas?

    Previously it had worked if orderby was set to tsfrom – but since upgrading the plugin to 1.5.0, the tsfrom SQL entry is set to NULL, which means events created after upgrading all end up at the bottom.

    Thanks very much.

    have you tried to set orderby to from?

    I too have a problem with orderdir. I want to show my events in reverse chronological order. I’ve tried different combinations of suggestions I found on this and other forums. I’m running WP-Calendar 1.5.0 on WordPress 3.4.2. My ‘tsfrom’ entries are NULL as in Ted’s case above. I’ve tried 'orderby' => 'from' and 'orderby' => array('from') and it doesn’t seem to work, however, if I use 'orderdir' => 'eventid' it works, which could suggest there’s a problem somewhere in the date handling. Or maybe I’m missing something. Any help appreciated.

    echo fse_print_events(array(
    			'number' => 6,
          			'datefrom' => mktime(23,59,59,1,1,2010),
          			'orderby' => 'from',
          			'orderdir' => 'DESC',
          			'categories' => 5,
          			'pagination' => 1,
          			'before' => '<div id="back_issues_wrap">',
          			'after' => '<div class="clear_float"></div></div>',
          			'template' => '<div class="back_issue">{event_subject}<br />{event_description}</div>'));

    Ok, I got it sorted out, in the file fsCalendar.php, in the part:

    static $valid_fields = array('eventid',

    replace ‘tsfrom’ and ‘tsto’ with ‘from’ and ‘to’

    Thanks tedzio, that did the trick for me as well.

    Next hurdle: getting the “dateto” parameter to actually cut off at “now” – So far, still showing future events in the list.
