JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Sort order of manage events

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

I have a sort order issue when I modify an event and display it in the Manage Calender Event Option from the front-end. My event list starts out as

Code: Select all
November 2008  Event A
December 2008  Event B
               Event C
January 2009   Event D
February 2009  Event E


If I modify/edit Event C to move it to March my sort shows up as

Code: Select all
November 2008  Event A
December 2008  Event B
March 2009     Event C
January 2009   Event D
February 2009  Event E


It appears to be sorting by the date added (or original date) rather than the month it was edited to. In small list, this would not be a problem to find but if I was specifically looking for a certain month in a very large list of events I could easily miss a one-off like this.

Is this suppose to happen? (using geriant template)

Updated to SVN 1280.

Moving an event to a different date shows up sorted in the right month now. Thanks! :D


I did notice the repeat events do not show up in the list but only once -- the original month/date the event entry it was added. Can we get the ability to list/modify those as well in the month we wish to change or at least list and point to the original creation month/date so it would be easy to find in a large list?

Did you notice the filters below the calendar when you are logged in as an event editor.

You can filter to only show "your events" and also to show "unpublished" events - then as you view them you get the edit icon which gives you lots of options.

This is really the best way to manage events in the frontend. I'd be interested in your thoughts after you've used it.

p.s. Documentation will be coming later

Yes I did. It was set to NO/NO/All Categories. It only shows the one entry for repeated events. Changing it to YES/NO/ALL or YES/YES/ALL had no effect on the repeated events. I was logged in as the Super-Admin.

I can not answer for everyone else that uses your product but for me even something as simple as a visual indication that there is a repeating event that was started in X month would be beneficial. If I could offload the management of the calendar to those who are really responsible for the dates (and boy how I have tried--most cannot find the power button on the computer--do know who many password resets I have had to do this month alone--that's another story) I wouldn't care if it was now February but the first entries was last June; let them find the original date. But as they keep adding repeatable events then want to change here and there on a regular basis, after many months, since I am forced to do the work, I will forget the original date forcing me to use the back end instead of the easier front-end. It would help me greatly but I am only one person. I wouldn't want you to spend a large amount of time on this one issue for one person.
