Categories

Categories are meant for general grouping of your events just like posts. It is used to sort and group content into different sections of MEC. Think of them as general topics or the table of contents for your site. Categories are there to help identify what your event is really about; it is to assist readers finding the right type of content in your events. Categories can be hierarchical.

  1. Enter your name,
  2. Enter your slug.
  3. Choose an icon for the category.

Output of category should look like this:

Hello, I want to use the list view (modern) to display my events but it won't dipsplay the time of my events (on the event page yes but not on the list). Only the date, title and location is displayed. So I have set a custom shortcode that allows me to tick a box to display the time. I have set it for my main archive page but I can't set it for my category pages (it does not give me this option on the list). Is it because I am using the free version of the plugin ? Is there something I did wrong or unchecked somewhere ? Is there any way I can display my events time on the category pages ? What I did so far to solve my problem is creating a page for each category by adding a shortcode (I've set a shortcode for each category ticking the box to display the time). But now I'm afraid it will create duplicate content on my site and will be bad for my SEO, as the original category pages still exist somewhere although I don't display them on the site (I've removed category display on my event pages so that people can't access the original pages). It's a bit a of tricky process but it's the only way I found. Could you please tell me if I missed something somewhere ? Thank you very much in advance ! Flo

I have a set of hierarchical categories, from where I would like to use two or more sub-categories to filter the event list configured by shortcuts. How can I setup "and" conditions for two or more categories ? Can I use any of the filter criteria (category, organizer, label, etc.) to build "and" conditions ?

Hi,The Widget is not displayed on the website. There are 2 widgets 1 MEC Single Sidebar (with checked boxes) Not displeyed. 2 Main sidebar 2.1 Nieuws/news (displeyed correctley) 2.2 MEC Single Items (not displayed) 2.3 Modern Event Calender: Kalender (Title and Shortcode). Only 2.1 and 2.3 are displayed, but 2.3 is not the display I want.

Hi! Where can I disable "categories" feature from showing sidebar? I Would like to keep my calendar view as minimalistic as possible. As I don't use categories, it looks silly. Other than that I really really like this calendar. Also, if disabling calendar categories view from sidebar is not possible, could you tell me if that's something that will be fixed in future? That would help me to decide if I'll use this calendar outside my practice projects. Thank you so much for your assistance! Keep up the good work.
