Is there a way to show the next two events on another page besides the main events page? I have a space on my home page for upcoming events and if possible I'd like this to show the next two events as opposed to me having to update that page manually myself. Is there a way to do this?

I'm not a developer, so writing scripts isn't an option for me. I'm just wondering if there is a fairly simple way to achieve this. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Hi UncleCheese,

I have a similar problem. I can get the next upcoming event to show, however when I added 2 more calendars to my site, it isn't showing the next upcoming event anymore. This is my function code:

return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->upcomingEvents(1);

How can I specify a parent ID to the above?

I tried this:

$event = DataObject::get_one("Calendar");
return ($event) ? DataObject::get("CalendarEvent", "ParentID=16", "", "", 1) : false;

But it shows past events.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ben

I think I'm still missing what to do with that line of code. I added it in but it isn't working and the WYSIWYG Editor actually strips out the "<" and ">". What am I doing wrong?

<td width="290px">
<h2>News &amp; Events</h2>
<table id="News &amp; Events Table" style="width: 100%;" border="0">
<tbody>
<tr valign="top">
<td><% control UpcomingEvents %></td>
</tr>
<tr valign="top">
<td>
<p><a class="link" href="[sitetree_link id=16]">view other events</a></p>
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
</td>

You need to add it to your Page.SS file (or whichever page type it is).

Thanks, so there is no way to have it just on that one page? I don't want it everywhere there is a cell in a table that is supposed to show the next two events that appears only on the home page.

Yes, you could either create a new template for the home page. See: http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/tutorials/1-building-a-basic-site

Or you could put an if statement, like this:

<% if Page(home) %>
<table id="News &amp; Events Table" style="width: 100%;" border="0">
<tbody>
   <% control UpcomingEvents %>
      <tr>
         <td>$Event.CalendarEventImage
         <h3><a href="$Event.Link">$Event.Title</a></h3>
         <h4>$_Dates</h4>
         $Event.Content</td>
      </tr>
   <% end_control %>
</tbody>
</table>
<% end_if %>

The above is untested...

Its much better to make a custom page type. If you're putting structural markup in the wysiwyg editor, you've really missed the whole point of silverstripe, and you need to read the tutorial above.
