Hah... I had thought of it, but I remember thinking, who would ever want that? Touche! :)

It wouldn't be too hard. For right now, though, I'd just make a few duplicate entries to get you through the next couple years until I can get in there and do it. Part of what makes it time consuming is updating the javascript of the CMS interface to have new UI elements. But I'll get it in there at some point.

I'm also considering requiring dataobject manager for the EventCalendar now. What does everyone think?

Hehe.. The reason I suggested it was because I'm actually doing a site for a school and they'd want a few events to be repeated yearly so they wouldn't have to make and event every year for let's so Christmas break or something like that. Alright sounds good I'll just do that for now it's not a problem.

I haven't used dataobject manager, but is there a way to have it downloading with the EventCalendar?

Well, in the spirit of the term "module" I try to keep everything, well.. modular. But so much of my stuff is becoming integrated and dependent on each other. The ImageGallery module for instance, relies on DataObjectManager and SWFUpload. I like the idea of using DataObjectManager with EventCalendar because it gets rid of those messy table fields, and with all the javascripting going on, I think the DOM is better fit for that interface. Right now it's supported, but not forced.

You can check it out from:

Should be some good docs in the wiki, too.

Would be it possible to have Event_Calendar record not only date:time but also week:weekday (like 43-1) and/or to provide one button access to "All this week event", "All this month events"?

Thanks. Victor

UC: Right, because the start and end date parameters come in from the URL and that is parsed in the controller. Once you get into <% control Children %> you are not in the page controller anymore.

I would like to reanimate the question: we have few types of events so we want not only to distinguish them by "category" but have even different parents of the type "WorkshopHolder": Colloquium, Analysis Seminar, ..... However we want to have "WorkhopAllHolder" which would be parent to "WorkshopHolder", used to display whatever children displays but ALSO have working CalendarWidget

Is it possible?

Thanks

Victor
