Add an option to only show next occurrence of recurring event in 'Upcoming Events' widget
The main reason I upgraded to the PRO version of The Events Calendar was to take advantage of the recurring events feature, however after setting this up the 'Upcoming Events' sidebar widget has now become useless as it simply displays the same event over and over because several of the occurrences are before the next independent event.
I would like to see the option to only show the next instance of a recurring event in the widget's list.
I imagine, with enough votes, we might be able to implement one or all of the following:
- a widget checkbox option like: “don’t show other occurrences within the same recurrence series as a related event within this widget”
- a checkbox in the general settings that does this globally
- a checkbox in the recurrence settings (so as to not be available to non-recurring single events) that does this per series – for controlling display on the single event view’s related events
Just to clarify as I can't edit the original suggestion - I was thinking that this would be a setting that can be set for each event, e.g. as a checkbox under the recurrence rules section. However, while not optimal an option to set this on/off globally for the widget would also solve my problem, though perhaps not for people with more complex event setups.
