Hi Roel,

Just upgraded to 3.2.0 and very happy about new fields, which I have added as 'Host' & 'RSVP by', both very useful biggrin

http://www.plymouthivc.org/events/calendar.php

Just a couple of small issues:

1) You very kindly added a text download facility on the upcoming events. For some reason this is now giving a <br> after the two new text fields and the Category for example:-
Host: Ann<br>
RSVP by: 31 December 2013<br>
Category: Meal<br>


2) In the previous version I was able to add a text file defining the email list sent upon a new/changed event:-
Change distribution email on event creation/editing/deletion
- in event.php the variable $nml (Notification MaiL) is holding the email address(es) / address list(s) that should receive an email reminder.
- on line 177 $nml is set in case an event gets edited, so it's taken from the event record from the database
- on line 216 $nml is set to the value entered in the event form when a new event is added
So if you change line 216 to:
$nml = 'distribute';
and in this case there must be a file with email addresses (one per line) in a file called distribute.txt in the 'emlists' folder,
then when adding an event, this 'distribute' will be the default value.


Unfortunately I cannot see exactly where this change would be in the new version, so perhaps you could point me in the right direction.

As always, many thanks - John smile

Hi John,

1) Text download facility:
When implementing the custom event fields and the flexible event layout I made a (small) mistake:
In the file views/upcoming.php in the middle of  line 59 change . . .

makeE($evt,'br',"<br>\n",'1234567') into makeE($evt,'br',"\n",'1234567')

in other words: remove the <br>. Thereafter the "<br>"s will be gone.

2) Email list:
Yes, the line numbers have changed in V3.2.0.
They're now 138 and 178 respectively. So if you change line 178 to
$nml = 'distribute';
it will take your file 'distribute.txt' in the 'emlists' folder again.

(If this was not what you wanted, please let me know.)

Hi Roel,

Thank you so much...

That has sorted those out biggrin

In fact, I thought that I had changed the second issue but it made no difference, it has now. It was probably 'server lag', I am experiencing that occasionally...

John

PS Happy new year! All the best for 2014 wink
