JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Delete Future Repeats - clarification

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:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

* PHP version php-5.2.5-win32-installer.msi
* Joomla! version 1.5.9
* JEvents version 1.5 Beta (1314)
* Web Server software apache_2.2.8-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi
* Server Operating system Windows
* Database version mysql-essential-5.0.51a-win32.msi
* memory_limit 128M

What is "Delete Future Repeats" supposed to do? My assumption was, "any repeat after the one I am on". Is this correct?

I created an event with 2 repeats (original event and one repeat). If I select "Delete Future Repeats" while on the original occurrence, it deletes everything related to the event.

Is this the expected result? Even the confirmation popup is stating its intention. Is it just making the wrong function call?

Sorry, I have only tried this from the frontend.

I guess perhaps that could be worded a bit more clearly, but that function deletes the instance of the event you clicked on PLUS all future events. So, if you do this on the initial event you are essentially deleting the whole thing.

Try creating an event with 5 repeats (total). If you pick the third instance and 'Delete Future Repeats' you will delete 3-5 leaving the first 2 instances still in place.

Edited to add: I just tried it and the Popup actually asks, "Are you sure you wish to delete this event and all future repeats?". So, working as designed! :)


PS - Geraint, the Popup is actually misspelled and asks, "Are you sure you WITH to delete ..."

Ken - thanks for spotting the typo.

Actually I realise this needs to be made translatable too!
