Bypassing 30 max past events on squaresapce


LFyel101

Question

I'm currently scouring the internet to try and find a solution to my problem. I am producing a website for a client that needs to be able to display a high number of past events (so more than the 30 past events limit). Has anyone found a good solution to this? So far my only possible solution seems to be to use a summary block in leiu of an events page, and use something like this lazy summaries plug in or similar https://www.squarewebsites.org/squarespace-plugins/lazy-summaries 

If anyone has found a solution to this problem that works with a plug in or a bit of custom code, it would be great if they could share!

If a list will suffice, Archive Blocks can display up to 50 groups (months, years, authors, categories, or tags) with a maximum of 100 items per group.

If you need them to look more like the Events page then the approach you mention (Summary Blocks and Lazy Summaries) is probably the best way forward.

Thanks for this, this is useful! I think we are going to test the lazy summaries approach and see how this works for what we need. 

It's good to know the archive blocks are there as a possible solution. Although it seems like the archive blocks don't let you apply selections to narrow down what you're showing, unless i'm missing something! For example to only show past events, or to show an archive of specific date ranges (so if the archive block exceeded 100 events, we could start a new one). I suppose one way round that would be to start a new events page to select the archive from once the previous one reached 100? Just thinking out loud now!

I guess the best solution will depend on why you want to display past events. I'm not clear why this is, because without a link to the site it's difficult to understand the context of the question.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your response. The client (an art gallery) needs to be able to display their archive of past events so that they can show the breadth and history of their programme, and also so they can feature previous works that have happened at the gallery. Unfortunately I can't share the website in development on a public forum. 

I have tried the lazy summaries plug in, and it doesn't seem to be compatible with past events in its original form. I have emailed the developer however to see if there is any way to get this working. But thanks for your advice with this!
