Support » Plugin: Event Organiser » Show 5 most recent events in reverse order?

  • Resolved GoodUtopian


    HI, I’m trying to display a list of the 5 most recent events using shortcodes:

    Recent events:
    [eo_events event_end_before=”today” numberposts=”5″]

    But this is showing the FIRST five events in chronological order, when what I want is the most recent five events in reverse chron order. I can’t figure out how to do this — is there a way?

    Thank you!

    So you want to show past events, but only the last 5?


    [eo_events event_end_before="today" numberposts="5" order="DESC"]

    By default it sorts by the start date, so you may wish to sort by end date. See the docs for more information.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks so much for responding, but this doesn’t work. When I did this, it gave me all recent posts in ascending order (starting with the date farthest in the past). I copied the code directly. Any other thoughts?

    That’s odd. Its definitely working for me. What happens if you change “DESC” to “ASC” – does the order change? If not, it sounds like maybe a plug-in interfering with the query – could you try disabling all other plug-ins and switching your theme to TwentyEleven/Twelve just to check ?

    Thank you! I cleaned up my plug-ins, and it works perfectly. Much appreciated!

    Which was the offending plug-in? I can take a look, and let the plug-in author know – so others won’t have the same problem!

    you know, i wasn’t scientific about it — i had a couple that were deactivated, which i deleted, and i had a couple that were active but i wasn’t using them — i think the latter were jetpack and something about parallel loading that i don’t recall ever installing ….

    next time, i’ll be more methodical, so i can be of help!
