Hi,
We've recently set up Concerto (an open source digital signage product). Part of the setup includes reading our calendar from our website to display the latest events via the JEvents Latest Events Module RSS Feed.

http://www.whpfederation.org/1/index.ph ... &Itemid=89

The latest events module displays the current date on a multiday event.
http://www.whpfederation.org/1/index.ph ... s&modid=74

The RSS feed displays the first date of a multiday event.

I would like if at all possible for it to display the current date on a multiday event. Am I being dim and missing something obvious?

It looks wrong on our displays advertising an event that looks like it has already gone.

Thanks,

Paul.

You could customise the output of the RSS feed using a template override if you have some php skills.

Not a great deal but I'll give it a shot..! Which file is it I need to look at? It can go one of two ways... :)

Note to self. Back up file before commencing.
