Dynamic Data Condition For Checking Upcoming Events with The Events Calendar

Sridhar Katakam

In the Oxygen Facebook group, a user wanted to know how to conditionally output a Section if there is at least 1 future/upcoming event when using Modern Tribe’s The Events Calendar.

We can define a custom function that returns 1 if there are any upcoming events or 0 if there are none using tribe_get_events() and use this with the Dynamic Data condition.

Add this in a custom functionality plugin or a code snippets plugin:

function wpdd_check_upcoming_events() {
    return tribe_get_events( array( 'ends_after' => 'now') ) ? 1 : 0;

Then use it in the Oxygen editor like this:

Add a Dynamic Data condition → PHP Function Return value.

Function Name: wpdd_check_upcoming_events
