  • Eliana Tamerin: That may have faded away now, or gotten better. I hope so. I see a lot of happy phpBB users, so I have to imagine someone is having success.

  • Eliana Tamerin: @andy, the phpBB folks had (at one point, not sure how it is now) a specific set of rules you had to follow to get support. Anyone not found doing so would have their topic ignored.

  • andy: SP team is a breath of fresh air...
    April 24, 2016, 11:24:32 pm
  • andy: Yes they are difficult to deal with at SMF. I never experienced anybody like that at phpbb several years ago.

  • Maizono: Their team is very antagonistic and I prefer this forum and this staff far more. So kudos to SP for doing it right.

  • andy: When SMF went gold there was a lot of optimism about progress and talk of 3.0.  Five years on and that soulds like SF.

  • andy: Just my frustration at the slow pace of SMF. I suppose we have an alternative now.

  • Burke Knight: Andy, as long as the SMF team keeps like they are doing, there's always going to be bugs, mainly due to SMF issues, because the team can't get their stuff straight.

hi,..
maybe a new topic is better than injecting my request to an old thread with a slightly different topic..

we will use the calendar for anouncing an unsteady number of events per day/week/month...

that means:
when we configure the calendar block to show the events of the next 12 days (for example) sometimes there will be displayed 6 events.. sometimes 3 events.. but sometimes 28 events..  and so on..
that changes the hight of the Calendar Information block everyday..  that means also a different site design everyday.. because we want it to be on the top of the portal blocks.. and we want it with a fixed hight (but without scrollbar)..

so the idea is to show the next xxx (given number) events.. instead of the events of the next xxx days.
when only xxx numbers of events are displayed (doesn´t matter how far they are in the future), the hight of the block will always be the same.

since im not a coder, please help me to change the Calendar Information block code to act like discribed.
i think its the function sp_calendarInformation in Sources/Portal.Blocks.php

Think everybody is enjoying christmas and new year.

it should be possible. Im looking at the code for the calendar block we have and trying to work out how to do it. on basic level increasing the numbers of days to an infinate number but then setting a maximum events should work.. just how..

hmmmm.. will think..

Hello demlak,

I understand you are eager for this, but I hope you can understand that "push" will not write any code.
Velorooms might not have read your recent posts.  You might PM him directly to find out if he is still interested in working on this.

As a last resort, since you are having a difficult time finding anyone interested in the project, you might consider looking at the php code yourself.  If you build a test forum and work there, you can confidently break as much code as it takes to figure it out.
Please to keep this website running, if you like SimplePortal, make a
one-time subscription. Thank you for your support.

Have you tried the SimplePortal documentation?
