I was working with the events module and noticed a but that I was able to verify on the http://eventcalendar.bluehousegroup.com site. I created an entry called, Multi-day test, for 6/20/2011 - 6/24/2011 from 6:00 pm to 8:00pm. If you set it to repeat daily, the event does not show up on the calendar for 6/24/2011. If you change the end date to 6/30/2011, the event does does not show up for 6/30/2011. This happens on the daily setting regardless of the "every x days" setting.
Is this something that is known? Is the bluehousegroup site using the bleeding svn code? I'm using the repeat option as the events show up for each day on the upcoming events page instead of just the starting date of the event. I can help fix if this is something that is not already in the pipeline.

Is this the 'feature' that repeating events only show up if you leave off the end date? I posted why I thought this was very confusing and that the default label for 'end date' should clearly state that you should only enter a value if you didn't want the event to repeat, although in my opinion it should repeat UNTIL then end date.
If you enter an end date for a repeating event, it follows the repeat pattern between the start and end date, and will discontinue after the end date. For instance, if you had a school with a PTA meeting on the first Monday of every month, but only during September - June.
If there is no end date, the repeating event continues indefinitely.
It's a little confusing, but a lot of people did want repeating events to have the option of being contained in a specific timeframe, so I added in the end date.

Uncle Cheese, true, however the problem is that if your end date is the same day as one of your repeating event days (say, 4 weeks, every Monday, and you choose the date of that last Monday as the end date) the last date does not appear.
