Thanks for your calendar. We are looking at using it for using it for our radio station as to who is currently on air.

Here's a copy of the hack I've done to the lcsbar.php   Just run a DIFF and you'll see what I've changed. This hack will change over time for better formatting, but you get the idea.

It now spits out just the "Title" of the event that is scheduled for NOW. That is the field we have for our announcer's names. We also plan on using it with artwork as well, linking the categories in to it as well as the filenames. It'll be slightly complicated, but long term, it should work well. Plus, it can be used for rosters too.

Provided there are no crossover of events, this should work well.

Thanks heaps! :)

I had the date function wrong at the bottom:

$sbsDate = $sbContent == 'todo' ? date("Y-m-d",$sbsTime - (1 * 86400)) : date("Y-m-d",$sbsTime); // if ToDo start 30 days back
$sbeDate = date("Y-m-d",$sbsTime + (($sbUpDays-1) * 86400));

// Make it today and now
$sbeDate = $sbsDate;
$sbFilter .= " e.s_time < '" .  date("H:i", time()) . "'";
$sbFilter .= " AND e.e_time >= '" .  date("H:i", time()) . "'";
