Hello All,

I've extended the event calendar module with two fields:

class CalendarEvent extends Page
{
	static $db = array (
		'Recursion' => 'Boolean',
		'CustomRecursionType' => 'Int',
		'DailyInterval' => 'Int',
		'WeeklyInterval' => 'Int',
		'MonthlyInterval' => 'Int',
		'MonthlyRecursionType1' => 'Int',
		'MonthlyRecursionType2' => 'Int',
		'MonthlyIndex' => 'Int',
		'MonthlyDayOfWeek' => 'Int',
		'Uitslag' => 'Text',
		'SoortWedstrijd' => 'Text'
		);
....

So 'Uitslag' => 'Text',
'SoortWedstrijd' => 'Text'

are new fields.

Now i want to display the upcomming events on my homepage:


class Homepage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

	public function Events() {
		$today = date("Y-m-d");
		return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->Events(null, $today, null, false, 5, null);
	}

in the template i use:

									<% control Events %>
									   
										   <li>
											  <h4>$EventTitle</h4>
											  <span>$_Dates</span>
											  <span>$SoortWedstrijd</span>
											  <span>$Content</span>
										   </li>
									   
									<% end_control %>

But $Content & $SoortWedstrijd aren't showing up on my homepage. EventTitle & Dates do show up.

How do i fix this?

Thx!

<span>$Event.Content</span>
