I wish to show future 'events' on a page. I have a channel, that contains a playa field that I use to associate the desired events.

I cannot seem to get it to show on the site. I'm convinced it must be something simple that I am overlooking, but I can't figure out why it won't work. Anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong? :(

{exp:channel:entries channel="isp" limit="1" show_future_entries="yes" dynamic="no"}
    {events show_future_entries="yes"}
  • Apologies, missed the reference to Playa.

  • Are these unusual statuses or any such thing? Also, if you output a title for the outer channel entries tag, do you get anything? I'd like to make sure you're getting results from that tag before further troubleshooting.

  • Have you tried the playa:children tag pair in place of the fieldtype tag pair? Apr 29, 2013 at 12:41

    You should check if channel entry tag is outputting correct entry as you are having limit as 1 and show_future_entries as "yes". Apr 29, 2013 at 16:53
  • You've probably already looked at this, but could it be the Channel field Group setting of "Show future entries?" in your Playa field? Apr 30, 2013 at 20:26

Not sure if you are using Structure or native EE templating, but a sure way to remedy this is to make sure your outer channel:entries tag is actually pulling the playa:parent page.

{!-- Replace XX with the parent page's entry_id --}
{exp:channel:entries channel="isp" entry_id="XX"}
    {events show_future_entries="yes"}
