upcoming events is odd?

Unread post by Hitreach » Sun Aug 16, 2009 10:51 pm

http://www.kettlebell.net/events/

All the events I have added span over 2 days.

Instead of listing each day seperately in the sidebar as if they are individual events can it be displayed as 1 entry but the date reflects the length of time it spans for? IE:

Aug 22-24th, 2009
Event 1 Name

Aug 27th-29th, 2009
Event 2 Name

If this isn't possible I will have to edit the length of each event to 1 day as this standard view is awful! But then the big calender won't show the event on day 2.

Hope this is customisable.

Thanks,
Chris

Well, no, see the idea of that view is that you see what is going on each day. It makes more sense, if say you have a holiday that spans 2 days but during those two days you have meet-ups etc. In those circumstances the view you currently get would make perfect sense. What you are asking for would only work if you only had one event per day, which is not always true. By having it how it is, it can be applied to all situations.

How much would it cost to get it changed?

I hate the way it currently works.

It was also be good to know if you could set it up to display the next 'x' events at the same time.

Calendar is free, open source software that I write in my free time (what little of it that I have).

This means that to get changes made you can either;

1) Modify it yourself if you understand PHP code
2) Employ a developer to modify it for you

The GPL license under which Calendar is released permits both of these options.

My free time outside of work on future versions of Calendar is somewhat limited by virtue of the fact I have a full time job so I can't really take on any custom modification work.
