FILTER BY EVENTS, ORGANIZERS, PLACES AND CATEGORIES PARAMETERS

Filter events placed in specific venue or geolocations:

FILTER AND SORT ADDON SHORTCODES

Shortcodes are available for this addon:

[chronosly type="event" filter="1" navigation="1" pagination="1"]

 

There are mainly three parameters that can be within this shortcode:

  • Filter: shows filter and sort bar for Chronosly types (event, organizers, places, categories and calendar).
  • Navigation: show navigation bar where users can have quick access to next /previous content, depending on which format Main event list is set up in Chronosly settings (year, month or week)
  • Pagination: only necessary if there is a large amount of content. Shows content splitted into different pages when there is too much content to show in a single page.

Let's take a closer look at these three shortcode's parameters:

Filter: this paremeter must be included in shortcode if you want Filter and Sort addon. Shows filter and sort bar for Chronosly types (event, organizers, places, categories and calendar).

In example below filter bar is shown (filter="1") for event list (type="event"):

[[chronosly type="event" filter="1"]]

Filter and Sort addon, shortcode filter parameter

 

 

Navigation: this parameter show navigation bar where users can have quick access to next /previous content, depending on which format Main event list is set up in Chronosly settings (year, month or week)

In example below navigation bar is shown (navigation="1") and also filter bar (filter="1") for event list (type="event"):

[[chronosly type="event" filter="1" navigation="1"]]

Navigation bar shows year list (by default in Chronosly plugin)

Pagination: This option is not mainly for Filter and Sort addon, but is specially useful to show content splitted into different pages when there is too much content to show in a single page.
