I'm going to be using the calendar for our local (small) Boy Scout council's web site. The site I've got this set up on is: http://www.twinvalleybsa.org/calendar
. As often is the case in Scouting, this is entirely a volunteer effort, so the purchase of the software was out of my own pocket, and all work is done for free.
So far the calendar's working great. I showed it to the office staff today, and they were ecstatic - they can maintain the calendar themselves! I hope to convert from our old static calendar to this calendar within the next week or so. I especially like the fact that I can import the information from a spreadsheet into the mySQL DB when we do our yearly plan, but changes can be made easily and immediately.
However, there's a couple of things I'd like to do that I haven't been able to figure out yet. I've searched through the forum, but couldn't find an answer to these. Sorry if I missed them.
I've set up category for council events, plus a category for each of the district's events. I'd also like a category for holidays.
I'd like to be able to display the council events separately, but also display the council events each time a single district is filtered for. I'd like to do the same with holidays. For example:
Filter on Council only - display Council & Holidays
Filter on District #1 - display District #1, Council, & Holidays
Filter on District #2 - display District #2, Council, & Holidays
Is this possible?
I'd like to sort the event list by category. I tried to do this using the showCat variable (see http://www.twinvalleybsa.org/calendar/index1.php
) but then the filter didn't work.
How is this list sorted today?
