The plugin stores the Venue IDs in the _EventVenueID custom field. The Venues itself are custom post types, and this field refers to them. Therefore the Venue IDs and names have to be manually entered to the filter, but first we need to find the Venue ID, Name pairs.
Finding the Venue IDs
Open up your notepad, or grab a piece of paper, and open up the Events -> Venues submenu.
Click on each Venue one-by-one. The Venue ID well be visible in the browser address bar after the post= query argument.
Take a note of the IDs and the Venue names. In the demo the venue IDs were 3048, 3051 and 3056. Based on this information it is now possible to construct the filter.
The Event Category is a taxonomy, so it is time to create a taxonomy term filter as well. Go to the Frontend Search Settings -> Categories & Taxonomy Terms panel and choose the tribes_event – tribe_events_cat taxonomy, then drag the ‘Use all..’ option to use all of them.
Then, click the Change display mode button, scroll to the tribe_events_cat taxonomy, and change the display mode to dropdown. You can also define the ‘Choose all/any’ option while there.
Step 7 – Date in results content
Under the Advanced Options -> Content panel, look for the Advanced Description Field option.
