JEvents 1.4

How to Recur 2nd Weekend in April Event

Postby khorsed1018 » Sat Feb 21, 2009 6:00 am

Hello,

I'm trying to setup a car show website for my fiancee using 1.4.3 JEvents (we're on 1.5.8 version of Joomla), and I have no clue how to modify JEvents to do what he's asking...I tried messing with the code, but I don't feel I understand the modules involved well enough in order to make a major customization like this.

Request: Car shows typically happen on the 2nd weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) in a certain month, each year. The start/end times are the same for each day.

To me, it looks like I just need to have check boxes for the days, and also be able to check boxes for the week # (week #2 in this case).

If anyone can help me out on this, I'd really appreciate it. I almost think that it's just easier to manually add the events each year...what do you all think? This request seems like it would require a hefty amount of development...

Thanks!

Kristin :D

Kristin,
I am not sure if your version looks anything like the one I'm using (1.5 Beta), but if it is...

Start date -- select the 1st Friday that the show is on
Repeat type -- weekly
Repeat Interval -- 2 weeks
Repeat Until -- select the last Su of the show
By Day - check F, Sa, Su

Hope this helps you.
I am also very new to JEvents, just a couple of days, so I hope I am correct with my suggestions

If you're tying to set up a multi-day event that happens once a year then just define the events by hand. You'll be done in a minute or two with no muss no fuss. Even if the event happens 2-3 times a year you're better off just dealing with them by hand.
