Event calendar Q #1

Hi there, im new to SS,

My first question is about the event_calendar module.

I want to "grey out" (that is, disable) all dates that have passed, ie. all dates prior to the current date.

Even finding the current date is difficult, forgive me if im obtuse, but i need help.

More Questions to come, thanks for the help with my project.

in your mysite/templates/layout/, just evaluate whether the date is in the past.

<% if StartDate.InPast %>class="past"<% end_if %>

Thank you so much for a quick response,

Still not sure on how to implement this, will it work to disable all past dates??

Where in do i add the code?

Sorry to be stupid :) :)

Well you just want them greyed out, right? You don't want them hidden.

The first thing you need to do is copy the contents of event_calendar/templates/Layout/ and to your mysite (or theme dir) /templates/Layout. Silverstripe always looks in your theme directory first for a template and falls back on the module default if it's not there.

Run a flush, and then in your Events control you could just do something like this:

<h3 class="summary"><% if Announcement %>$EventTitle<% else_if StartDate.InPast %><span class="past">$EventTitle</span><% else %><a href="$Link">$EventTitle</a><% end_if %></h3>
