Setting up a list of categories

The category list shows all categories for which there are events in the selected system folders and in the selected time-frame. If your events are not assigned to any categories, the category list will be empty.

The category names are linked to the list view, filtered by that category (in other words: only events from the selected category are displayed).

This tutorial assumes that you already have set up a list view of your events.

  1. Add a front-end page.
  2. Add a “Seminar Manager”-plug-in content element to this page and set the type to “Category List.”
  3. Select the page that contains the list view (this page will be used for creating the links).
  4. Optional: Select the system folders (and recursion depth) that contain the events for which you would like to list the categories. If you select nothing, events from all system folders will be taken into account.
  5. Optional: Select the time-frame from which you the events should be selected. If you select nothing, current and upcoming event will be taken into account.
  6. Save and close.
