    I could see how this would be useful for a virtual event like a webinar, but if this is a physical event, the time should be static to the timezone the event resides within, regardless of what timezone the user is in.

    Okay. I think I found a solution. I found a plugin where I can "expire" a custom post type and change the category at that time. If I have the event's category of "NEW" expire after the first event of the series, then the following weeks don't show up on the "upcoming classes" list. Perfect!

    It'd be great to see this functionality added into the calendar plugin. Set a timer to add or remove categories or tags from an event or event series.

    This feature should allow for the "series" to show all instances on the monthly calendar, and even if clicking on any instance of the series takes me to the /all/ page with ticketing and registration information for the entire series would be great!

    The problem with the existing recurring events is that even after the first event has passed, the second will show up in the list view of upcoming series, and I only want to display series in which the first instance has not yet occurred.

    When I split the first instance out and give it a different tag and call only events with this tag (what I now do), the list is now correct, but no ticketing information is given to visitors who visit the calendar view and click on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th instance. So ideally, these would still be grouped together.

    More thought on this feature. If you're really looking for a new project to take on, this feature could connect with a plugin that could track class attendance from week to week.

    I'm still thinking of this feature months later. Another solution might be to add a category tag of "new" to the first instance of a repeating event to let that act as the first session of a series. Then in list view, only call for events tagged as "new" so that a series that is currently on week four or five will not show up in the list of upcoming events (since registrations is long since closed), but the events will still then show up on the calendar view.

    The problem with this though is that by adding the tag to just the first event in the series, it pulls it out of the "recurring events" and any updates or changes are not transmitted across the series.

    A true recurring event is repeated, and each event can stand on its own, like church is repeated every Sunday.

    A series has beginning and an end, and not all events in the series are created equal. Generally someone must sign up/purchase a whole series, like a four week class, where you can't just show up on week 2 or 3.
    I suggest a series should have these added features:

    * Option to list where event lands in the series in event Title (week 1 of 4, week 2 of 4, etc)
    * Option to always hide all instances beyond 1st from list views (remain on monthly calendar view) - I feel this needs further explanation. I want somone looking at the monthly calendar to see that classes are running tonight (especially useful for people currently enrolled), but when they are looking at the list of upcoming classes (/events/category/classes/list) they don't need to know about a class that started who weeks ago and still as two weeks remaining (currently this is what happens. When week one has passed, week two remains on this list. Once this is over, week 3 is on the list). This crowds out the actual information they are seeking, which is a new class series in which they can enroll.

    -perhaps I would be satisfied with a button to "duplicate this event" and then let me manually add in weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. This way I can retitle them as needed, and give all the week 1's a separate 'category' to pull for the list view. While this solution isn't as good, it would still save us some time.
