Posted:  26 Feb 2011 20:12
when I delete event, I don't see it anymore in the application but the records still exist in the DB (events & dates tables)

1- why is it so?
2- how do I tell luxcal to delete these events from the tables?
3- if not part of the application (bad idea), can I delete them from the tables with SQL? will it make any damage?

3- N.a.
