Dear Roel,

it happens occasionally that an event is created without a title.
These events apparently can't be accessed, edited and deleted.
Do you have any suggestion how to handle these?

Many thanks,

Hi Imre,

There is no special function in the calendar to access/delete events which have no title. Normally it should not be possible to add events without a title.
However, if you have events without title in the calendar database, I suggest to use an external tool on your server, like phpMyAdmin, to view the calendar's events table and to remove these events with an empty title.

If you know of a way to add events without title, please let us know, so that we can correct the software.

Best regards,

Hi Roel,

thanks for your response.

In our calendar there are a couple of these "zombie" events.
The last one was added by me simply clicking (inadvertently)
"Add and close" without filling in the title.

Quick test:
if i "Add" w/o title an error message appears in
the Event window, but the event is added anyway.
As long as the Event window is open one can add a title
and make the Event accessible, but if the Event window is closed
the event will be represented  by a blank box and can not be accessed
any more.

It also comes up as a  blank line in the upcoming event list,
but i realize now that here  it can be opened as an event by clicking
on the blank line. This is a solution.

Hi Imre,

Yeah, I forgot . . . there is a minor bug in LuxCal 3.2.3 which makes it possible to add events without a title. This bug has been corrected and in future versions this will not be possible any more.
