Todays Birthdays block not working
« on: October 06, 2014, 04:58:15 am »
I was using "Todays Birthdays" ezBlock but it's nor working.

You can see it empty on the right side (at end) but there is at least one member who's birthday is today: http://themobilephotographyblog.com/profile/?u=189 (and the forum profile shows that).

Not sure what you mean. The birthday appears at the profile of the member. So what might be missing and where should I look at?

Jomas,

in the admin > core features...... after the calendar is active, you will be able to click on the text link called "Calendar" and it will open a window to control you calendar site... Birthdays as well!

screen below

Not say this the issue, just what you need to check first!

regards,
Maxx

Btw, that block is only for Birthdays, right? I can't find a block exclusively for events. Is calendar the only one that is able to show events?

I'll need to check, but I think there are 3 drops downs for Holidays, Birthday, evens, but need to check But I'm sure there is some place to add evens, I've seen it done never had to us it!

Your welcome on the other thing!

 And we both have so many things going on at present, plz excuse the late replies!

Search for events or show evens, and maybe even the themes, some may have this??

EDIT you may to recheck these setts at the top as well... screen attached!

regards,
Maxx

Thanks. No worries for late replies. I appreciate all the help whenever it comes.

The events are shown on Calendar (and members are able to post them) and they also appear on the Calendar ezBlock.

What I was asking was if there was a specific ezBlock to show exclusively events, similar to birthdays, since Calendar ezBlock is too big (while showing events in the whole month) to put on one side (left/right) of the homepage.

The thing is I was worried about the same thing, the size, but what thinking!
I've seen the events and birthdays, appear at the bottom of the smf pages and that really would be the place to have them. But att I'm stuck between many things can't think on how it was done, it's got be something simple! If not someone may make a mod to do this and others things, if not already done by someone?

I'll thinking on this! :}

But always thought this thing appeared in the site Info block, the Birth dates and events? I never had use 4 them.

maxx

I tried variants of the Calendar Block using the options to show (or not) holidays, birthdays, events, etc but it produces always the same block that is too big for a side. Maybe I will put it on the footer but even so, I think it's too big.

SimplePortal (http://simpleportal.net/) has a friendly little calendar to put on a side where it will show as bold the days with events and will show the events if you click on the day. This block and/or a block just for events (like in the next 7 days that would show the name of the event and the date) would be great additions.

Once again, as other ideas that I proposed here (specially related with Gallery Pro) are just suggestions. Unfortunately, I don't have the knowledge to develop them myself and contribute in a more active way with SMFHacks and ezPortal.

Jonas, Thanks for your input on this, The Calendar block is still a work in progress as far the size and css goes, we are taking these things in consideration, but I feel at this time it is not a priority thing... But I am thinking on or about it from time to time. But please keep in mind that, evens and birthdays will take up allot of table space and stretch the block, no matter how small you try to make it.

as I mention above there must be a way to include the evens and B days in the SMF site "info center", this would be a much better place to have this appear, after all that what that section was created for! :)

I did not forget you friend!

regards,
Maxx
