UpcomingEvents() and RecentEvents() are now decorated into your SiteTree, so you can call those functions on any template.

UpcomingEvents works fine, nothing is returned when I use RecentEvents. It's quite odd.

I am having a hard time trying to get this to appear on my side bar.

My homepage is formated differently from the rest of the site.

my HomePage.php file looks like this:

 * Defines the HomePage page type
class HomePage extends Page {
   static $db = array(
   static $has_one = array(
class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
     function UpcomingEvents() 
return DataObject::get_one("Calendar")->upcomingEvents(5); 


and my has this for the sidebar I created

<div id="right">
         		 <div id="Sidebar" class="typography">$Page(notice-board).Content</div>
				 <% control UpcomingEvents %> 
<h4><a href=$Event.Link">$Event.Title</a></h4> 
<% end_control %>

I get this error on the page:

This page contains the following errors:
error on line 180 at column 12: AttValue: " or ' expected
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

And it displays ugly data right up to the first date of the first event in the calendar:

<span class="dtstart" title="20120330T000000-04:00">Mar. 30, 2012</span>
<span  class="dtend" title="20120331T000000-04:00"></span>

The second line dtend data is not displayed on the page.

I eagerly look forward to getting your help on this.

my test site for now is
