I registered a custom post type for events and now I asked myself how to handle upcoming events and events in the past properly.
By now, I'm displaying upcoming events on a custom page template I assigned to a page and use the custom post type archive to display events that took place in the past.
My problem is that the custom post type archive now has the URL
mysite.com/events which I would rather use for the upcoming events page and for the archive, I'd want to put something like
mysite.com/event-archive or such.
It seems easier to reverse the method and modify the archive query in order to display future events on the custom post type archive and have
mysite.com/events while creating a custom page template for past events and make it use the slug
event-archive... But isn't that wrong?
- How would you properly handle upcoming events and past events?
- How do I modify the archive page URL?
