WP Calendar category sorting (5 posts)

    Hey community,

    This is my third attempt to figure out how I can separate WP Calendar entries into different categories when it's pulled out on a page. I have a client that uses this calendar for a long list of events, which goes into 8 different categories. When added, they are assigned to its corresponding category.

    In stead of displaying a 3 meter long list on one page, how can I show events for one category on separate pages?

    My idea was to create a page-template where I ad some php code for getting and displaying the calendar categories on every page listing events, so it's easy to switch between showing events in different category.

    Is there a good way to do this with use of the short codes, either in pages or in a page-template?

    Another thing, It doesnt seem like there is any calendar entries in the categories it's assigned to. Anyone else have this problem, or is it just me crapping it all up?

    I'll buy a coffee or 10 for the one getting me through this one,

    you can create a page for every categorie and use the tag {events_print; categories="1,2,7"}. see the usage documentation for more information!
