Event List 05 Apr 2014 15:27 #12399

Hello.

I would like to build easy eventlist component. In Administrator user could submit "date, event title" on frontend there should be eventlist table

1. event date - event title
2. event date - event title.
3. event date - event title, ...and so on

but This table would show only future events from now. I don't want to show past event (regarding today).

Is this posible to do with j-cook=?

And if this would work with multilanguage, some events would be one language, other events in other language....then it wold be even more great :)
site is in two languages, and some event would be shown when site use language 1, and other events would be shown when site uses language 2.
Is this also posible?

Hi gremonasplet

Hope you are still about :)

I was building an event list component just like this is J-Cook.

I use the Published field to control the Event display. If you set the publish column to 2 - it archives it. That way you can keep archived events and display them if needed.

I used my J-Cook component to manage the events (ie: to create new events and edit existing ones).

I then created my own module to display the event list on the website for the public (interrogating the J-Cook generated database). When the module is displayed, it checks for event dates against the current dates and archives any old events (by updating the publish column to 2).

Timezones can be a pain for multiple timezones. But to keep things simple I just work with a single time zone (local time).
Just call me Chris :)

Thank you for your idea Chris.

That project isn't actual anymore (2014)...Client had very little events, and at the end I set it up to managed it with HTML module...just write names of the future events and deleted old events...there was no need to archive old events.

I like your idea and It is nice to hear someone else how he would solve the problem.

Best regards,
Vito
