For a client I would like to show previous and upcoming event on the front page. I want to use Modern Events Calendar. Is this best done with GP Element ? GP Show Posts ? GenerateBlocks ?
Any suggestions on how to use any of the three ? It is basically a post type where I want to have two boxes and pull in one upcoming and one just passed. Could be the same box twice or it could be one template with two. Or whatever you would suggest.
Thank you for anything.

Yeah, okay. Sorry. My fault.
The previous event and upcoming event should be pulled in automatically from Modern Events Calendar. Like an Element in GP. Does this make sense ?
Say I would use Show Posts to make a selection of post type “event” – can I choose 1 event and that event would be the previous and then another event that would be upcoming ? Or should I rather use one of your other solutions ?November 3, 2020 at 5:39 pm #1517010LeoStaffCustomer Support
Sounds like Elements would be the right way to go.
I’m not familiar with Event Calendar though so the best solution is probably to start implementing it using one way and see if you run into any roadblocks.November 3, 2020 at 5:43 pm #1517012Jacob
but how do I manipulate another post type than blog in Elements ?November 3, 2020 at 5:44 pm #1517014LeoStaffCustomer SupportNovember 3, 2020 at 5:46 pm #1517017Jacob
Display Rules ? Really cannot see it ? I see Location, Exclude, Users.November 3, 2020 at 5:48 pm #1517019LeoStaffCustomer SupportNovember 3, 2020 at 5:50 pm #1517023Jacob
In Modern Events Calendar I have ten events typed into a CPT. I want to show the next/upcoming event – and the one that has passed. It should run automatically of course.November 3, 2020 at 5:53 pm #1517025November 3, 2020 at 5:53 pm #1517026LeoStaffCustomer Support
Ahh I see. That case I don’t think Elements would help.
Does the plugin offer that functionality? Have you checked with their support on how this could be done?
Let me know if I’m still missing something.November 3, 2020 at 5:58 pm #1517030Jacob
WP Show Posts could show One upcoming event – but how about one previously held event ?November 4, 2020 at 1:59 am #1517296DavidStaffCustomer Support
if all events were sequential and the Next event was the Latest event ( ie. no more after it until it had passed ) then a simple query for the Latest 2 events could be completed with WP Show Posts.
But if you have a lot of future events and you only want to cover the next upcoming date, and the one prior to that then it you would need to get input from the Plugin developers.
