Hi,

I have successfully gotten my calendar events to display on the home page with this code in my HomePage controller:

public function UpcomingEvents() {
return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->upcomingEvents();
}

The problem is ICS events scheduled for TODAY won't show up, even though they display as expected on the calendar page. All the other events work fine too.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Okay, I figured this one out myself. It only took me 3 days!

In my HomePage_Controller class in mysite/code/HomePage.php I put the function

public function Events() {
$today = date("Y-m-d");
return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->Events(null, $today, null, false, 5, null);
}

Then in my templates/Layout/HomePage.ss file:

<% control Events %>
   <li>
      <h5>$EventTitle</h5>
      <span>$_Dates</span>
   </li>
<% end_control %>

The trick was to pass today's date to the Calendar class' function, because for some reason it was not getting the correct date for today to read the ICS feeds.
I hope this helps somebody!
