Posterboard Recurring Events - Calendar should display only one instance of a recurring event, but show all.

User: We use Posterboard view on the front page of our site by way of a short-code (ai1ec view="pasteboard" etc), with a maximum 8 events shown so it doesn't go on too long. For recurring events this is showing each instance of the event, not just the next event or one image with a date range.

The result is that if we have one event that is on every night for a week it takes over most of the posterboard with the same image repeated every time.


Ben: This workaround has worked before, but does not work anymore: create an event to start and end on the same date, then use the "Repeat" option and repeat the event until it is over.

    I have tried the following to see if it would work - 

    both adding an end time and changing the repeat pattern to daily until 13/8/16 but neither helped.

    I end up with three instances of the event on the Posterboard view, as per this screenshot.
    (You can see the next event also has the same issue with each daily event taking up one space on the posterboard)

    My customers almost ridicule the current way things are shown - really needs a solution

    I''m afraid we don't use the web application - we use a hosted solution on Wordpress. Will this functionality be replicated there also?

    If not, is there a straightforward way to move our existing events over to the web application?

    As a WordPress user, I'm hoping to see this as well. Posterboard is basically useless as it is for anyone with recurring events.
