Display filters

The display filters offer complete means of controlling what is displayed within your event listing areas. This only applies for the back-end view. This is composed out of three fields:

  • searching area: where the search will be made. Essentially this is a dropdown with the following options: name, description, location, category, tag, featured, status, show child events, starting from and ending on.
  • searching rule: is, is not, contains, does not contain
  • keyword: the word by which the search will be done
  • ordering option: depending on what parameter do you wish to have the searched events ordered when displayed. This includes the following options: start date, end date, name, location and owner
  • order: the order in which the events are displayed. You can order them: ascending or descending.
Event listing

List your events, according to the configured display filter. By default, it includes the following information: event name, rating, start and end date, rating, location, owner, category, tags and publishing status.

To improve the event management workflow the listing can be divided within the following areas:

  • ongoing events: events that are running, e.g. the current date is in between the event start and end dates.
  • this week events: events that will occur in the current week.
  • this month events: events are occurring within the current month.
  • next month events: events that will occur next month.
  • upcoming events: will display the events that will occur within two months from the current date.
  • past events: events that have past, e.g. the event end date is older then the current date.

RSEvents!Pro allows you to mark as featured. This is associated with the Featured events module, you can read more about it here.

Tip:

Within the listing area, an event can be present only in one area. For example an event will not be displayed in the past events and within the this week area.
