Hi I've adopted a tutorial to produce and event list in wordpress using publish and Custom Fields view demo

here's my code:

    <?php // Get today's date in the right format
$todaysDate = date('M d');
<?php query_posts('showposts=5&category_name=events&meta_key=Date&meta_compare=>=&meta_value='.$todaysDate.'&orderby=meta_value=order=ASC'); ?>

    if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();
    $eventMeta = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'Date', true);
    $eventDate = strtotime($eventMeta);
    $displayDate = date ('M d', $eventDate);?>
<span class="date"><?php echo $displayDate ; ?></span>
    <span><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></span>
<?php endwhile; else: ?>
<li>Sorry, no upcoming events!</li>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php wp_reset_query(); ?>

Now my problem is it does not show any occasions for future years occasions e.g. (June, This summer etc. ...).

On among the the discussion there someone had stated about putting "In your query_posts, just use the parameter ‘post_status=future’ ".

Are you able to please tell me wherever? I've added it but nothing happened.

Based on the query posts paperwork ( Function Reference/query posts « WordPress Codex ), it is going inside your query string &post_status=future like every other parameter. Consider using a simpler query posts string with &post_status=future and find out whether it works.

Custom fields are awesome, however i wouldn't suggest with them for any real event manager. Consider searching at PodsCMS for WordPress. Among their first working good examples is definitely an event manager. The dev team is excellent and they are always useful should you ever have problems.

Gleam wordpress plugin known as The Future Is Now that overrides the default WordPress behavior of not showing posts until their publish date comes around. Use might you will not need any custom code additional situation.
