    You will need to dig through the PHP Admin for the DB info. Like the actual database, not the site code.

    While not optimal, You can export from your database, a CSV of your events and re-import them using the event list template. I would love to see these errors corrected in future versions of the plugin though. This is one of the most efficient plugins I’ve found thus far for managing multiple events that also allows you to use the built in WP Categories hook. The only thing, outside of fixing the errors, that would make this better is an option to add images and set re-occurring dates so you don’t have to input them one by one. But hey, compared to the amount of hoops the other tools have… hands down the best option.

    Ok… I figured it out… The table is a bit confusing but I nailed the damn thing… all except for displaying a new drop down menu… save that for later… LOL

    This is what I have right now. I this first filter I need to see events today + 90 days in the future. Is it also possible to display another dropdown based on the category the user selects?

    [event-list show_filterbar=true filterbar_items=cats_dropdown initial_cat=alumni-friends-group cat_filter=valley-hope-of-atchison,valley-hope-of-chandler,valley-hope-of-denver,valley-hope-of-moundridge,valley-hope-of-overland-park,valley-hope-of-parker,valley-hope-of-tempe,valley-hope-of-wichita date_filter=today,+90_day content_length=25]

    Correct. Every combination I have tried has not worked. This is probably more to do with my lack of expertise in this area than anything.

    @hatesspam Do you have a list of filter bar configurations? Maybe a way to create staged filters? So if someone shows up and wants to see only one topic but then wants to filter deeper by date within that topic? How about only showing 90’days ahead even though you have several events that are scheduled throughout the year.

    Thanks in advance to you or anyone that can assist.

    Sooo… How would I show only 1 parent category to allow the user to select a specific region?

    Have you cleared your page cache? I have had similar issues and it ended up being a cached page conflict.

    After digging through the code all afternoon I started from the ground up using the example import file. From there, I added different events to the list and imported. I noticed on step 2 that if there was a missing character or something that was not read right, in other words displayed a nonstandard character, like a black diamond with a ? in it… it broke. However, after going back through the import list, and cleaning up all the areas with an odd character, some of which were just blank spaces that I deleted and added back in, it worked… Seems like the import function is breaking when non-standard characters are identified in the csv.

    So, the fix, on stage 2 of the import, look for odd characters in the preview, then go back to your import list and correct it, then import again. You should see the non-standard characters disappear if you corrected them. This may be a UTM or ASCII coding issue. However, once you correct the characters, you should be fine.

    As for a code fix, I am curious if there is a way to identify the text coding and import special characters as well.

    All the events I am pulling in are upcoming events, I did not enter any past events. The short code I am using is the one your provided, thanks btw:
    [event-list show_filterbar=true filterbar_items=cats_dropdown]
    It is not showing any events as I pulled the ones I already entered because I was testing a 30 event import, which is where I found the issue.

    @hatesspam, would you be able to connect with us?

    To expand, Stage 1 of the import works as I am able to browse out to the file location and select the template. Stage 2 works as it shows a list of what is going to be imported. If there is a category that does not exist, the code states that category will be removed. Step 3 is where the break occurs. Nothing is imported. I reviewed the DB and no entries exist there either.

    I tried the import without the missing categories and got the same issue. Nothing imported. I am on WP 5.0.3 and plugin version 0.8.3. Please help me get this fixed because this is exactly the type of utility we have been looking for. Thanks in advance!
