This question is particular to the plugin "WP Calendar".
The events are outputted in ascending order rather than descending which would make more sense since the newest should appear first.
See the code I'm using is here.
The instructions on how to customize the output are only viewable in the plugin admin, so I have pasted them into a pastie. In the instructions it says:
orderby => datefrom An array of fields to be sorted. This parameter is not available for the function fse_print_events_list, when grouping is active.
orderdir => ASC An array of sort directions (asc or desc). Use the same key as in the array orderby to join the right field.
The functionality definitely exists and involves
'orderdir' => 'DESC' I imagine but everything I try doesn't change the order. The developer has not responded in weeks. Maybe the orderby and order dir do not go in the array.
Please help =)
