Does anyone know if timezone text PST/EST can be added to the event details page and Latest Events whenever the event's time is shown? I am using JEvents 2.0 on Joomla 1.7x. I'd like users to see whether or not an event is held at EST or PST. Or, do I have to upgrade to get this feature. Many thanks.

Hello,

In the Jevents configuration under the component tab, go to the bottom and timezone for the site is defined there.

Thanks
Tony

I'd like to be able to show either "EST" or "PST" or "CST" next to the event's time. Below is an example. The red PST is what I'd like to show--the timezone text for the event.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 03:30pm - 04:30pm PST
Details of the event ....

Setting the timezone under Component tab didn't display the timezone text for the event. Thanks.

Where is it you would like to see this, the latest events module? list events? within the Events?

I think this might need some customising, which is available to club members.

Geraint will be able to provide a better picture Tomorrow.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. I'd like to show the timezone text on the Latest Events module and List by Category. If Geraint could shed some light on this issue, that'd be great. I'd just do the club membership upgrade.

Is this the same for all events or specific to each event. If its specific to an event how did you intend to specify it?

I was thinking about this...

I think you could possible use the Custom Fields plugin and manually add the Zone when creating the event?

Yes, this is the same for all events. When a user adds an event using the front end editor, there would be a radio button option menu with PST, EDT, CST as options for the user to select from.

Hello,

The Custom Fields plugin sounds like just what you are after in that case. Available to Silver Members here:

http://www.jevents.net/en/downloads/cat ... or-jevents

It would require a little bit of configuring through code. But sample files are provided and you can get what you need from them.

Hello,

I am a new member to your product. Thank you, it is a very good product. I would like to know how to add timezone (PST, CST, EST, etc...) to an event time. I uploaded the custom field plug in but not sure what to do from here. Can you please advise. I can either have all timezones show the same as entered into the configuration, or for each event choose a specific timezone. I can use either option.

thank you.
