Uncle Cheese -

Excellent event calendar module.

I do have one question though. When I add an Event Date and Time, and then go back and edit them, the Start Time and End Times always show in Date Time format (which they should probably only the Time) AND the date is not the same as the entered Event Dates. See screenshot where the Event Start and End dates are both 9/16/2009, but the Start Time and End Times show 9/13/2009. Is there a way to correct this? I noticed that happens on your bluehouse demo as well.

Make sure you're using

CalendarDateTime::set_date_format('mdy') // or "dmy"
CalendarDateTime::set_time_format("12") // or "24"
DatePickerField::set_date_format('mdy') // or 'dmy'

still does not work. in fact, now that the date has changed this morning, the dates in front of the times have now changed to 9/14 - even though the actual start Date and End Dates are set to 9/7 (as before). It looks like it is pulling in the current date infront of the time in those 2 fields.

There's no such thing as a true "time" field in MySQL, as far as I know. There has to be a date attached to it. The date is irrelevant. I think the way SS handles time fields is just by adding hours to an arbitrary date, and in PHP that usually defaults to today.

I should revise that to only display the time and not the date as well. Surprising to me that TimeField doesn't handle that out of the box, though.

thanks for the insight. i am so glad you could see what i was seeing. for now, i will just instruct the client to ignore that date when editing the time.

thanks for all your help.

this thread is probably old but I have a similar problem with startTime and EndTime, and I'd like to know how you solved yours. When I add time in the format: 00h00 at the backend, the event's time fields show nothing as if nothing get saved. is it a problem with the format? if so where can I edit to add this format..

SS 2.4.1

thanks in advance.

I can't replicate that issue. When I enter 00:00, it saves as "00:00:00". Please replicate the problem on the demo site if you can:

If I wanted to get just the StartTime to show on a template in 12 hour how would I go about doing that? I have used _Times and that works but shows both Start and EndTime. If I use $StartTime then it shows it in 24 hour.
