Nice...

I've seen others that have date issues, i.e. they show events due tomorrow as being today or a day late, or they simply vanish on the due-date.

Does this have any known issues ?

there is only 1 known possible bug that i know of. i have not been able to reproduce the problem as of yet. it has to do with range events adding 1 day to the end date.


the only other issue is a bug in VB the work around for this issue if you have it is not to set the time zone for the events. When VB has this bug resolved there will be an update to use the time zone offsets.


other than that i don't know of anything.

It's working fine on 4.1.4, except it doesn't show recurring events very well.

I have created a recurring event. The range is starting Jan 01, ending Dec 31 and the event is 1st Sunday of every month.

The event is listed, but the widget just displays this:
My Event
From Sat Jan 1st 2011 to 31st Dec 2011
And because the range started Jan 1st, this event is always at the top of the list.

Can you please provide a demo?

I would like to add this for my website http://www.alteredgamers.com/ where it says "Featured Event"

I like the idea of having the ability show the picture with a set size, and use it as a "widget" if that makes sense...

Thanks!

My version of the event widget (widget Turnierticker).

(not based on your work, based on the idea here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...pcoming+events )
But heavily heavily modified. Maybe 5 lines of code are left.

Anyway - since our users rely on weekly recurring events i rewrote the code to account for that and set them in the right order. I thought it might help you with your work.

vB saves the recurring events in two seperate columns:
recurring and recuroption

I know for most of them what they mean (brute force testing ). But the only one i have implemented so far is weekly.

What it does.
The recurroption for weekly events is saved like that:
1|5
-> event takes place every week on tuesdays and sundays.

3|32
-> event takes place every 3 weeks on fridays.

So we need that first part of the string, which i write into $teile[0] - then i'm using a loop to change the startdate to the actual week we are in (+ some offset to show events which are today).

I do that for all events which i take out of the database (usually 5ish more than i will show in the end - to account for database missorting based on the wrong dates).

Then i resort the array via

I hope that helps.
