JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Category Description not Visible

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

I am using JEvents 1.5, and I cannot get the category description to show up on the front end. I am primarily using the Category List view. Can someone help me with this? Thanks!

Its not currently used - but you raise an interesting point. It would make sense to display this at the top of the category view.

My php experience is not too high, but I am able to make some modifications to the code. Is there a variable name for the category description? Or are you aware of any code that I could add to make the desc show? Anything would be helpful to help me figure this out! Thank you

I have added it to my development code and it will be in the next release 1.5.1 (this week).

That is great news– I greatly appreciate your help with this issue. I have one more modification I was hoping you could help me with. For some of my recurring events– mainly the weekly repeating events– I would like the date to be displayed as the day of the week (Sundays, Mondays, etc.) instead of the actual date. For example, one of the events is Sunday School and occurs every sunday. I need the date to show up as "Sundays" and not "Sunday, May 24 2009". Is there a way to do this? I read in another post that yearly view lists recurring events without a date, but I really need the weekday to show up so I think the category listing is best for me.

I am working on site for a very high profile church in my city and previuosly had EventList installed as my system for displaying all the events. However, Eventlist had a numerous amount of problems that were just not possible to work around. I was really hoping EventList could be fixed and would work properly, but unfortunately, I had to abandon it. I have spent weeks converting all my events to JEvents, and it works beautifully except for the couple of things I wrote you about. I have high hopes for JEvents, as I said it works very well so far. I would greatly appreciate your help with modifying the repeating events. I have studied very hard and tried to solve this issue myself but have hit a wall. Thank you very much for your help.

This request is really suitable for a template override - if you can't do it yourself then I could do it for a small payment and I'm sure there are others who could help out too.

If you are interested send me a PM.

I've attached a zip file containing a template override to make this work as expected. ie. if only one category is specified in the menu item, the category description is shown (and the category selector is not shown).

This is a bit of a hack but it seems to work fine with jEvents 2.0.11.

I'm really struggling to think of a reason why this isn't the default behaviour.
