Events List Widget not working correctly in Beaver Builder

    Hi,

    I just added the events calendar pro to a site I’m working on. I added the Events List Widget on my home page using beaver builder. Everything is working except the filter. And, I need to filter this to only one category. I’ve attached a screen shot to show you what’s going on. Basically, you can check the Add A Filter box, but the dropdown menu to choose the category is just not there. So… any thoughts on how I can get the filter to show up?

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    We’d love to be able to help out but, I’m afraid, we can’t always facilitate integration with third-party plugins such as Beaver Builder.

    To explain a little more: in this case, we’ve designed the widget’s settings to work well within the regular WordPress widget screen which, usually, is a pretty solid assumption. In this specific scenario, however, the widget interface is being pulled into a completely different page that – if I understand correctly – isn’t technically even an admin page (the page builder is certainly accessible from the page/post editor, but the experience takes place outside of the usual admin environment).

    Unfortunately, that means that various bits of code needed to bring things like the filter dropdown to life are not available within the page builder and – if we force them to be available – they will not run as expected due to significant differences between the page builder screen and the normal widget admin screen.

    Being pulled into the page builder may not present any problems for widgets with very simple settings, but I imagine this may not be an uncommon problem with more advanced widgets like ours. On that basis, have you reached out to the Beaver team? Perhaps they have various fixes in place that might help.

    Thanks,
    Brendan

    With that being said, is there a way for me to filter out what categories show on the main calendar? I only want to show 1 category on the main calendar and then I have 3 separate calendars with a different category on each.

    Hi there,

    To exclude certain categories from the main calendar, can this snippet a try:

    Make sure to replace the slugs in array( ‘family-fun’ , ‘bbq’) with your category slug : array( ‘your-slug’ ). You can add multiple slugs here if you would like to hide multiple categories. To find your slug, go to Events > Event Categories and selecting the category. Make sure you use this and not the category name!

    Let me know how that works for you!

    Thanks,

    Brendan
