Ive actually just started programming PHP and I may have a look in to this myself. Will let you know how I get on.

I would imagine its just a case of querying the database and setting different conditions depending on whether the date in the calander matches the current date.

It may be as simple as checking a variable ;)

Remember, today's events are bolded, meaning that it has a way to check that something is today's event ;)

Any luck with this?

I might actually have time to look in to this myself tonight! How annoying it would be if I manage to do it tonight just by digging about a bit in the code :D

Since, nobody seems to have gotten anywhere thus far, here is what I've found at the moment.

You might want to first go to themes/default/languages/index.english.php

find $txt['calendar3b'] = 'Upcoming Birthdays:';
$txt['calendar4b'] = 'Upcoming Events:';


add after $txt['calendar3c'] = 'Todays Birthdays:';
@txt['calendar4c'] = Today's Event's:';


Ok, give me a sec yet, I'm still trying to work out getting it to show on the forum index.

Ok, if maybe someone could tell me exactly which file has the table that shows upcoming events, because all you have to do is add a table named Today's events beneath it and I think insert this
if (!empty($context['calendar_birthdays']))
{
echo '
<span style="color: #', $modSettings['cal_bdaycolor'], ';">', $context['calendar_only_today'] ? $txt['calendar3'] : $txt['calendar3b'], '</span> ';
/* Each member in calendar_birthdays has:
id, name (person), age (if they have one set?), is_last. (last in list?), and is_today (birthday is today?) */
foreach ($context['calendar_birthdays'] as $member)
echo '
<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=profile;u=', $member['id'], '">', $member['is_today'] ? '<b>' : '', $member['name'], $member['is_today'] ? '</b>' : '', isset($member['age']) ? ' (' . $member['age'] . ')' : '', '</a>', $member['is_last'] ? '<br />' : ', ';
}
// Events like community get-togethers.
if (!empty($context['calendar_events']))
{
echo '
I'm not sure though, because I'm still trying to figure it out, from the code, it almost looks like it is meant to show Today's Birthdays as Today's and not upcoming so now I'm confused.

Its good to see some code snippets on the thread though, I think I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.....either that or its a train!!!

Sorry, I tried it but too buggy hehe. You can try it. Improve it or play with it. BoardIndex.template.php


// People's birthdays.  Like mine.  And yours, I guess.  Kidding.
if (!empty($context['calendar_birthdays']))
{
echo '
<span style="color: #', $modSettings['cal_bdaycolor'], ';">';
/* Each member in calendar_birthdays has:
id, name (person), age (if they have one set?), is_last. (last in list?), and is_today (birthday is today?) */
$brokendown = array
(
'now' => array(),
'soon' => array(),
);
$celebnow = 0; // celebrant counter
$celebsoon = 0;
foreach ($context['calendar_birthdays'] as $key => $member)
if ($member['is_today']) // birthday today
{
$brokendown['now'][] = &$context['calendar_birthdays'][$key];
$celebnow++;
}
else // birthday soon
{
$brokendown['soon'][] = &$context['calendar_birthdays'][$key];
$celebsoon++;
}
// Any birthday celebrant today?
if ($celebnow > 0)
{
echo 'Today\'s ', $txt['calendar3'], ' ';
foreach ($brokendown['now'] as $broken)
{
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=profile;u=', $broken['id'], '">';
if (!empty($broken['color']))
echo '<span style="color: ', $broken['color'], '"><strong>', $broken['name'], '</strong>';
else
echo '<span style="color: #', $modSettings['cal_holidaycolor'], ';"><strong>', $broken['name'], '</strong>';
echo isset($broken['age']) ? '(' . $broken['age'] . ')' : '', '</a>', !$broken['is_last'] ? ', ' : '';
}

That's great. I might try and edit it so it shows another section saying "Today's Events" but apart from that its been worth the 2 year wait :)

If anyone else has another version please do post it as it will help others.

2 years? lol. It's not that important I guess that's why no one bothers to try it.

Here's bug-free.
