* From https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/a6aad3c60f469970b1ecb209d85ec755
* Similar code for Slider Revolution: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/30ac2152a8264ef27235b46b7d16332d
* Same Essential Grid code except without requirement for being a Featured Event (works for more than just The Events Calendar): https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/fbbaad70b9b8748819ac73f00260ac5e
*
* essgrid_get_posts filter is from /wp-content/plugins/essential-grid/includes/base.class.php
*
* Tested working with version 2.1.0.2

* Filter hook only applies to Essential Grid > Source > Source Based on Posts, Pages, Custom Posts
