Hello,

I think there is a little bug in management of an annual events.

For instance :
- create a birthday event on May 29th, 2012;
- set annual repetition;
- choose "repeat until" and select May 29th 2014 from the calendar
The problem is that the section "Per year/day" is automatically selected too, with the value "150".

Then if you display the planning for years 2012 to 2014, you can see that your birthday takes place on May 29th for 2012 but May 30th for 2013 and 2014!

That is probably because the event management tool does not consider the "repeat until"+calendar date set but the "Per year/day" + 150th day set.
And unfortunatelly, because 2012 is a bissextile year the 150th day is May 29th, but 2013 and 2014 are not, and the 150th day is May 30th.

Of course, in that simple case, you could choose to count from the end of the year and put 216th day from the end, but if you have a case with two annual events, one before Feb 28th and one after, there is no solution.

Best regards

PS : same issue if you use "number of repetitions" instead of "repeat until"

Hi Vandoise,
you are right, we'll take care of that. In the meanwhile, you may choose the option "Count back from year end" and that prevents the problem.

Thank you very much!!

This is standard iCal specification.

For dates after 28 Feb you select count back from year end.

OR do a monthly repeat every 12 months.

Thank you for your answers.

Thank you for your suggestions Geraint. Nevertheless, if you carefully examine the case I described, you will realise there is still a issue.

Best regards

This software is pretty useless, because they offer no support, you cant even see the example videos, if you do not pay, you must pay for a subscription, why would i want to pay for help when product does not even work, but im not paying for support when cal doesnt even work, JCal works much better.

Hello Viruzman,

Very sorry to hear you are having issues. What issues is it you are having? JEvents works flawlessly with Joomla! out of the box. However, it is possible other components clash or a mis configuration causes issues.

I see you have not created a post for help yet? we pride our selfs of first line support to all users.

Regards
Tony
