We have a Calendar and CalendarEvent pages (from event_calendar) but we want also a CalendarShoutBox on some other kind of page which displays exactly the same events as Calendar but without CalendarSideBar and DatePicker (and ideally displays only events in the next 10 days).

Thank you in advance

The UpcomingEvents function is decorated into your SiteTree, so you should just be able to add <% control UpcomingEvents %>$_Dates, etc..<% end_control %> to any template.

And if I have not a Calendar but WorkshopHolder as

I will try to figure out what should I use to replace UpcomingEvents

Cannot figure out how to do it. Say we extend EventCalendar (following instructions)
and want put something on a separate page.

<% control UpcomingEvents %>$_Dates, etc..<% end_control %> 

which works for plain EventCalendar does not work anymore. I made few attempts to create
WorkshopSiteTree.php, from trivial

class WorkshopSiteTree extends CalendarSiteTree

to more complicated but no more working.

Any suggestions?

Another question:

CalendarSiteTree.php contains no closing

but works. Why?
