I need to display a list of events by category and month. For example I need to list all the Mountain Bike events in July.
You can use the plug-in provided function
eo_get_events(). This is essentially a wrapper for
get_posts(), and so is intended for 'secondary' loops.
The plug-in specific arguments can also be given to a
WP_Query object - in case you wanted to modify the main loop. (Related: When to use WP_query(), query_posts() and pre_get_posts )
$events = eo_get_events(array( 'tax_query'=>array( array( 'taxonomy' => 'event-category', 'field' => 'slug', 'terms' => 'mountain-bike' ) ) 'event_start_after'=>'2012-07-01', 'event_start_before'=>'2012-07-30', ))
assuming mountain-bike is the slug of your category term
The only plug-in specific arguments here are
event_start_before which accept a date string in 'YYYY-MM-DD' format (as above, or a relative date such as
+1 week or
third Thursday of this month - please note available relative dates will depend on your php version).
There are also
event_end_before arguments available. All of these can be used in a
WP_Query object too.
eo_get_events() sets some defaults (See documentation).
Return is an array of post objects (of 'event' post type). This answer shows how to display the returned posts (see
