events_calendar ---> please exchange misspelled "Fitler" by correct "Filter"

\event_calendar\lang\en_US.php - line 00111:
'Fitler calendar';

\event_calendar\templates\Layout\CalendarEvent?.ss - line 00011:
<h4><% _t('FILTERCALENDAR','Fitler calendar') %>:</h4>

Hi UncleCheese!

After I updated event calendar to the newest version I have a problem:
I cannot enter dates for announcements and events.
All I get are those info messages in the admin area:

"You may add Announcements once you have saved for the first time."

"a Dates
You may add a Dates once you have saved for the first time."

Of course I saved, but nothing changed.
I cannot find any other error message.
I removed all Calendar tables and rebuilt everything. I also have gone back several versions of event calendar.
Regardless what I do, the problem remains.

Until some days ago, everything worked just fine.

Make sure you're up to date on dataobject_manager and event_calendar. That bug was fixed a few revs back.

Thanks! I missed that connection.
Now it seems to work, but with rev 239 an info box pops up when entering a date, just saying "hi".

Oops! Now THAT's a bug. An embarrassing one, at that. :)

Run an update and you should be okay.

Now everything is fine with the calendar.
I thought it was a feature, such a friendly program. Greeting the user. It reminded me of Douglas Adams' doors. :-)

First, let me say this is an amazing module! I've spent the last couple of days setting up a clean SS environment, seeing what's improved with the intent of rebuilding a site. So far, I think I've installed everything UncleCheese has written.

Anywho, I did have some stress with Event Calendar. This is the current version (r76) with no customization done yet, so out-of-the-box. It lists every event twice. I later installed the subsite module, and it lists events and announcements from a calendar on the subsite, but only once.

It looks to me like a problem in Calendar::Event(). The where clause for pulling announcements is mal-formed. The following change worked for me:

(lines 345-352, but I think this added a couple of lines. It's all the second parameter to DataObject::get())

(StartDate <= '$start' AND EndDate >= '$end') OR
(StartDate BETWEEN '$start' AND '$end') OR
(EndDate BETWEEN '$start' AND '$end')

Enjoy, and thanks for the fine module!

Thanks for the feedback! What did you change, exactly?
