Dear all,

I am strugling with the format of the Latest Events.
Best would be to program the format using Custom Format String, but somehow changing the string is not affecting the Latest Events.

I think I have to switch the Custom Format String on somewhere and perhaps some other settings as well.

Could someone help?

bwt, changing Disable default CSS Date Field Style is not helping me.

Hello,

It depends where you are changing it. Are you changing it in the module or the component?

If in the module set the settings:

Use Settings: Use Settings Below

If in the component, edit the module and set to: use component Settings.

Regards
Tony

No problem, a few people get confused by this so we will address it in JEvents 3.x
