Event categorized as passed at 12:00am, not at event end-time

    Is it possible to have an event be considered ‘passed’ when the event end time had been reached, rather than 12:00 am on the date of the event?

    There’s a public thread here, but it’s from a few years ago, It’s basically the same questions though:

    thanks!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. I’d be happy to help with your question.

    In Events > Settings > “End of day cutoff” you can set this to a later time if you have events that run past midnight.

    Let me know if that helps!

    Regards,
    Sky

    Hi Sky,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I may not have explained it well.

    Here’s a more detailed explanation.
    Let’s say I have an event scheduled for Oct 3rd 7:30pm MST
    And let’s say today is Oct 3rd. Even though it’s 3:00pm MST this event seems to disappear off all event displays except the ‘Month’ and ‘Day’ version. When the ‘Day’ version is viewed, and then the ‘Map’ version is viewed after, it then does then appear listed in the map version. But it looks like the URL is slightly different:

    http://innerjourneys.ca/schedule/ or http://innerjourneys.ca/schedule/?tribe_event_display=map
    vs.
    http://innerjourneys.ca/schedule/?tribe_event_display=map&tribe-bar-date=2018-10-03

    It looks like changing it to
    http://innerjourneys.ca/schedule/?tribe_event_display=map&tribe-bar-date=today
    might work, but maybe there’s a better way to do this?

    Also, I’m using the shortcode [tribe_events view=”map”]
    on the innerjourneys.ca/schedule/ page

    Hi again,

    Thanks for the additional details. Looking at your site, I see that the events are marked as “UTC+0” timezone. If you are not in this timezone, you may see a difference in when the event is considered “passed.”

    Can you share your settings for your site’s timezone in WordPress > Settings > General > Time Zone, and in Events > Settings > General > Time Zone mode?

    And then for one of the events, what timezone shows in the admin next to the date and time?

    Thanks,
    Sky

    Hi Sky,
    Yes, the UTC timezone in the wordpress general settings was the issue – thank you!
