Sort/Filter in Backend

    Our calendars are messy. We have a lot of recurring events that have been imported. I am wondering if there is a way to have the events page on the backend always list the next 20 or 30 events. I tried with setting a filter to on and after a certain date, but it is displaying stuff in 2019. Essentially be a list similar to the list found on our website, but on the backend for quick editing. I psoted the URL below. Make sense? I put a screen shot of what I see below.
    Thanks!

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! I’d be happy to help you 🙂

    In your WordPress dashboard, you should see “Screen Options” on the upper right. Could you click on it? Then, in Pagination, you may change Number of items per page to any number which suits your needs. Would that solve your problem, or are you looking for something different?

    Cheers,
    Jeremy

    Something different. We wiped our calendar and then started over, so right
    now everything on this list starts on October 1st. Is there a way with
    filters or some sort of sorting that the list on our events page will be
    the most current events in an ascending list. I tried to filer for events
    on and after a date, but with no luck. If I apply that, it then it puts
    events that start in November to the top. See screen shots for example.

    Hi Matthew,

    I can’t see your screenshots, probably because you replied via email instead of the forum. That said, it seems to me the way you’re filtering your events is the right way. Then, if you click on the “Start date” column, you should have events starting on October 1st at the top.

    For more information about filtering and sorting events with Advanced Post Manager, please refer to this page: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/filter-and-sort-events-with-advanced-post-manager/

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Jeremy
