Hi all,
I have the event-calendar setup for regular calendar use. Then I created a module that is an extension of the event calendar that is for certain group meetings. This one is extended with event address, map, etc.

On the homepage of the site, I would like to pull upcoming events, but only from the regular calendar. Not from the extended one.

When I use the following code in my page.php file, it pulls back events from the extended calendar.

public function UpcomingNonAnnouncements() 
   { 
      return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->upcomingEvents(5); 
   }

Any idea how I can fix this?

get_one("Calendar") is just going to select one arbitrarily. You need to add more criteria if you want to get a specific one.

Keep in mind, the UpcomingEvents() function that is decorated into all SiteTree objects takes a URLSegment as a second argument..

<% control UpcomingEvents(5,some-calendar) %>

Hi Uncle Cheese,

Is there a way I can test for if there are any upcoming events in a calendar? Essentially I have a sidebar block on my homepage showing my latest events, incluidng a headline of Latest Events. If there are no events I want the whole block to not be displayed.
