We use Connections to list birthdays and wedding anniversaries. using Tile Plus.
(This is the main directory page:
We want to display the Membership date option on the Anniversary page.
To do this I added the last div statement to the HTML for that page:
<div style=”float:left; width:410px;margin-bottom:60px;”>[upcoming_list list_type='birthday' show_lastname='true' upcoming_list list_title='Birthdays in the next 30 days']</div>
<div style=”float:right; width:410px;margin-bottom:60px;”>[upcoming_list list_type='anniversary' show_lastname='true' upcoming_list list_title='Wedding anniversaries in the next 30 days']
<div style=”float:right; width:410px;margin-bottom:60px;”>[upcoming_list list_type=‘membership’ show_lastname='true' upcoming_list list_title=‘Rotary membership anniversaries in the next 30 days']
This produces an error message, “Template not found.”
What do I need to do to display the Membership dates?
I looked at the Documentation but was not able to find the answer to my question. If you want to just point me to the right page or video, that’s sufficient.

list_typeoption for the
[upcoming_list]plugin sets the template type to load. There are only templates available for anniversaries and birthdays. There is not one available for memberships so this will result in the template not found error you are receiving.
What you can try is setting the
templateoption to anniversary or birthday to override the type set by the
list_typeoption. That said, maybe this code will work:
<div style="float:right; width:410px;margin-bottom:60px;">[upcoming_list list_type='membership' show_lastname='true' list_title='Rotary membership anniversaries in the next 30 days' template='anniversary']</div>
I do not know if that will work as I have never tested this scario before.
Hope this helps, let me know.

- This reply was modified 4 years, 10 months ago by Steven Zahm. Reason: Tweak example shortcode
Try this instead:
[upcoming_list list_type='membership' show_lastname='true' list_title='Rotary membership anniversaries in the next 30 days' template='anniversary-light']
I forgot the template slugs are actually
birthday-darkwhich explains the template not found notice. Apologies!11/27/2018 at 7:56 pm #478025
Yep, that worked, Steve! HOWEVER, it doesn’t show the date, as do the other Anniversary displays on this page:

Ok, digging deeper into the code… It seems the date is still being pulled from the legacy anniversary or birthday fields. And that is set be the list_type. The upcoming templates will need to be updated to pull the date from the modern date data.
It just so happen that I am working on the block equivalent for the upcoming list for the new WP 5.0 editor. The plan is to support lists for any of the registered date types. So, I will have to update the template code.
I do apologize for the inconvenience, but, the next update should automagically resolve this for you. Hopefully I can get this out later this week.12/03/2018 at 7:58 pm #478436
YES!! Thank you so much, Steven. I just checked and the name and date appear in the Anniversaries for Membership dates.
I really appreciate your commitment to constant improvement.

Great to hear it is working for you now! The next update will include options to display the original anniversary/birthday date year instead of the date in the current/next year or display it as years since (ex. 5 Years or 29 Years).
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference.
Thanks in advance for your time!
