Facebook events widget

How do you prevent it from showing past (historical) events or is there a way to tell it to display events from a certain starting date.

Answer this one and you will make wife very happy as she loves the plugin, just hung up on this one thing.

Cheers

    Hi,

    There is a new option for the In the latest version (v1.0.2, just released) that will let you enter a date as a sort of “threshold” value. All events before that date won’t be displayed, but everything past that date should be shown properly.

    There is no snazzy date picker yet though – you’ll have to enter the date in this format: “YYYY-MM-DD” (e.g. 2011-06-09).

    Hey VeBailovity,

    sorry for the late reply and thanks, my wife is chuffed with this, the only thing she suggested is could there be a selector to show dates after today’s current date as this would take away the need to go and change the date manually, please keep in mind this is a suggestion.

    All the best and enjoy your weekend

    Hi,

    yes that sounds about right, the idea is that once you have set it up it only shows events in the future with respect to the current date, so basically it would be a “set it and forget it” option as you would have no past events showing, only those in the future.

    For example, if it were set up today 11 June 2011, it would show all events going forward from today. Say there was an event on the 15 June 2011, that event would be visible until the date rolls over to the 16th June 2011 and then it would disappear from view.

    Hope that makes sense.

    All the best

    Hi,

    In the latest version (v1.0.4, just released), the Facebook Events has an additional checkbox, labeled “Show only future events”. Ticking this box will prevent showing past events. This will also take precedence over any date entered in “Show events starting from this date” field.

    Hi,

    As of latest release (v1.0.6, just released), it is. The event shortcode now accepts two new (optional) attributes: “starting_from” and “only_future”, which work exactly like their corresponding widget options. You can get more info and some simple examples at the plugin shortcode page
