Hello Everybody.

I've integrated the Eventcalendar module (SS2.4) in a site for a local 3D-Conference. Usually there are 3 events in a year. The plan was to set up different calendars for each conference to hold the different calendar events (e.g. presentations, speeches). The first event was in May. So, the events are in the past and are not shown in the calendar. For archiving purposes, i want to show the former events. How do i modify the module to make the calendar stick to a specific date? Or is there a way to filter a global calendar holding several conferences (also with presentations in the past)?

Greetings from sunny Germany

I'm not sure what you mean by "stick to a specific date", but you can add a date filter to the calendar through the URL, for instance:

Show all events in May, 2010
/your-calendar/view/201005

Show all events on May 21, 2010
/your-calendar/view/20100521

Show all events for 2009
/your-calendar/view/2009

Show all events between February 20 and April 15, 2010
/your-calendar/view/20100220/20100415

So if you want to customisze the view, you can set up a redirector page to go to the specific filtered view that you want.

Where do you get the latest code for event calendar and 2.4?

SVN is the best way..

svn co http://bluehousegroup.svn.beanstalkapp.com/modules/trunk/event_calendar

But I think the SS download page is on that branch anyway, so everything should be 2.4 now.
