events grouped as a series rather than each listed by date

Feel free to ask questions you might have before purchasing a subscription in here.

Hello,

I would like to show a series of events that are held in different date, time and locations, but are grouped under the same title. For example, on the list by "Concerts" category, I want to show:

<Concerts>
Lunchtime Concert
10, 13, 17 March 2013
------------
Annual Concert
25 May 2013


rather than:

<Concerts>
10 March 2013
Lunchtime Concert
----------------
13 March 2013
Lunchtime Concert
----------------
17 March 2013
Lunchtime Concert
----------------
25 May 2013
Annual Concert


And if you click "Lunchtime Concert", on the event page it will say:

Lunchtime Concert

10 March 2013 1:30pm Theatre
13 March 2013 1:00pm Theatre
17 March 2013 1:15pm Concert Hall

Details...



May I ask are these possible with JEvents?

Thanks very much!

Best Wishes,
khc

there is a silver member club addon called 'matching events plugin' - this allows you to show a list of events with the same title in the event details page. You can configure the plugin to show mathcing events based on category, tag, repeats of the same event or by title.

At present this doesn't show matching events in the list views or latest events module but we could help you (as a silver member) to customise the output of the latest events module to group events with the same title together. BUT please note that the date of each event would be displayed as
10 March 2013, 13 March 2013, 17 March 2013
or
10 March 2013
13 March 2013
17 March 2013

As opposed to
10, 13, 17 March 2013

Your latest events list could show the the locations next to each event too.
JEvents Club members can get priority forum support at the Support Forum. As well as access to a variety of custom JEvents addons and benefits. Join the JEvents club today!
