Upcoming events limit to the current month makes the plugin useless

I’m working to a website for an organization that creates trip events 2 time per year.

Registration to these events starts months before the actual event occurs.

Registration are also closed before the event start.

A can’t change event’s date, with the registration dates, because it would confuse users.

I need to show a list of all upcoming events (not so many, but most of the times they are far later the current month.

Why the developer have created this limit?

If this is a concern for the developer is always better to leave the option to the user: is way simpler to just add a checkbox in the widget/settings/anywhere you prefer and leave to us the choice.

Without the option to show events that occurs months later than current month, this plugin won’t be of any use.

Thanks.

    Thank you Arun!

    An OT feedback…

    I’ve tried to look for existing posts, but frankly, this forum’s search feature doesn’t help.

    I think that grouping posts per plugin and making the search engine able to filter results, could avoid or limit redundancies like my post.

    Greetings sciamannikoo,

    Thank you for your feedback, it is appreciated.

    Have you found any improvement with the functioning of version 1.2?

    Not only do I agree with the time limit perspective, but also concur on leaving it up to the user to decide which month is presented.

    I am sure that VeBailovity can see the logic behind this and possibly considers adding this as a feature.

    Of course with that said it would make this a feature request more then a support or bug problem.

    Therefore I am moving this to the Feature Requests and I add my +1 for adding the option of which month to show in the widget.

    Any other +1’s out there for this feature?

    Cheers, Joe

    aecnu, yes and not.

    I’ve joined another thread about this issue.

    Arun provided a temporary solution that will be lost in the next update though, unless a definitive solution will be released.

    I’ve suggested to allow to show “featured events”, or, even better, allow to give to an event a category or a tag, and show all events related to this taxonomy, regardless the starting date.
