Creating events search form on homepage

  • | Permalink


    I am currently struggling to implement a search form based off of Events Calender Pro and the filter bar add-on. We purchased the filter bar to make the following process easier but it has proven to be anything but easier.
    Essentially I need three fields (Categories, City and Province/State) with a submit button, naturally.

    I have managed to generate the submit button and a categories dropdown which works perfectly, however I can’t seem to generate the city and Province/States dropdowns. I know that they are reliant on venues and I have attempted multiple scenarios, but with no success. Could someone please assist with this and guide me in the right direction. Please see below the code I implemented to get the categories dropdown to work.

    $taxonomy = TribeEvents::TAXONOMY;
    $orderby = ‘name’;
    $show_count = 1; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
    $pad_counts = 0; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
    $hierarchical = 1; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
    $title = ”;

    $args = array(
    ‘taxonomy’ => $taxonomy,
    ‘orderby’ => $orderby,
    ‘show_count’ => $show_count,
    ‘hierarchical’ => $hierarchical,
    ‘title_li’ => $title

    form code:

    <div class=”categories-container”>
    <?php $cats = get_categories($args); ?>
    <select id=”categories”>
    <option selected value=”” disabled>Event Categories</option>
    <?php foreach ($cats as $cat) : ?>
    <option value=”<?php echo get_term_link($cat, $cat->taxonomy) ?>”><?php echo $cat->name ?></option>
    <?php endforeach; ?>


    window.location = jQuery(‘#categories’).val();
    return false;

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind Regards

    The above code was found through immense amounts of research. I tried to follow the same structure for the city and state/province dropdowns but with no success.
