Thanks, I'm a Silverstripe newbie so I hadn't used the new page types yet. I was able to create a new page type when I put in
<% control UpcomingEvents %>
I get the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/content/07/7202507/tmp/silverstripe-cache-home-content-07-7202507-html-cassiusblueco/.cache.themes.cassiusblueco.templates.Layout.HomePage.ss on line 323
I finally figured it out. Posting code here and the link to the documentation in case any other newbies are having a hard time also.
This shows title & date for announcements and title (as a hyperlink to the event) plus the date and time with EST after the time for the timezone.
<% control UpcomingEvents %> <% if Announcement %> $Title | $_Dates <% else %> <a href="$Event.Link">$Event.Title</a> $_Dates | $_Times EST <% end_if %> <% end_control %>
Thanks for the help.
