Advanced Search

Advanced Search Form

The search form shows all the configured options from the Advanced Search settings screen. The Type of location search will toggle between different input types (select or free text) depending on the type of information being searched.

Search results

The default output is simple, but customizable. After searching, you will be shown the results of your search followed by a search form set to your previous search parameters.

Advanced Search Settings

The event search available in My Calendar is a simple text search, with no filtering or bonus search tools. My Calendar Pro adds options for a richer search that makes it easier to narrow down what a user is looking for.

Advanced Search Settings

The advanced search has a dedicated Page on your site that will be added when you save the search settings.

In advanced search, you can enable searching by:

Dates: Set a start and end date to search within a range.

Author/Host: Search only for events by a specific event publisher.

Category: Limit search to events in a given category.

Location: Limit search to events matching specific location characteristics.

Location searches can search by the location name, city, state, country, postal code, or region.

“Region” is not a formal location structure; this is a field in My Calendar locations that you can use to separate groups of locations by a more generalized grouping. For example, this field could be used for neighborhoods, service areas, or any other abstract grouping.

Search Results Template

Search results are displayed in a list format by default, but the structure of the resulting information in that list can be customized using the same model the rest of My Calendar’s templating uses.
