I can't get ANY recurring events to display on the Event Resources calendar.

Additionally as per http://www.silverstripe.org/all-other-modules/show/15862 I realised that recurring events need to have end date/times removed to display on website, but as soon as i remove these an event that WAS displaying on Event Resources (just one day) suddenly no longer shows. So it seems to me there might be a bug here. Anyone able to reproduce this?

Thanks

I'm also confused as to why Annoucements don't have access to Resources for Events :(

I'm not sure what you mean by "resources?"

I'm using this module:
http://www.silverstripe.org/event-resources-module/

I have set up 3 Resources which in my case are Rooms at a public community centre.

Problem is that display does not work with repeatable events with an open (blank) end date.

Secondly, while this module allows Resources to be allocated to calendar events, it does not allow the SAME resources to be added to Anouncements. It allows you to add resources to annoucmeents, but forces you to create new ones that are in no way linked to the existing resources you have created for standard calendat events, which seems very odd.

Time to bump again.

Basically the issue is that the Event Resources calendar display will not show any repeatable events IF that event does not include an end date. Why is this an issue? Because events that do not have an end date included do not show on the LiveCalendat widget. Also in our case wanting to set indefinate repeateable events is the norm. To counter this issue we would have to set a default end date on every calendar event even if an end date is not required. I've emailed mod author with a test site to illustrate the problem but had no reply yet.
