I love smf, and I love the calendar.  What I'd like to be able to do with the calendar is have recurring events, like something happening every Tuesday, or something that happens every 1st Monday of the month.

Thanks for all your awesome work!

agreed. this feature has been roundly favored and requested for quite a while.

Consider this one more request to bump up recurring events.

I'm ready to dump Invision Power Board (1.3.1) and that is the only feature that you are lacking that I can't live without.

If it is, I will be dumping Invision for sure.

another vote to make this a feature in 1.1

;)

Count my vote for unlinked and recurring events in version 1.1 too!! :)

I came into browse around to see if this very subject could be added to the calendar. I see St Patrick's day and a few mainly American recurring events, but I would like to add more localised recurring events to the calendar, like St Andrew's, St George's & St David's day. Maybe even good old Burns night or Guy Fawkes. A feature like this would really be the proverbial icing on the cake. Meanwhile, good work you are all doing here! Great stuff!
Ped ;D

Any update on this thread?  Where is it on the list of "things to do"?

Ped...

if you add Grudge's Manage Holiday mod, you can do just what you're looking for...   it allows you to export the current holiday list, (text file) modify it and import the modified list (with the option of deleting the old ones and using just the items in your import or adding the import list to what already exists)

I added UK, Canada, Jewish and pagan holidays to my list in a matter of 20 minutes (mostly typing into the text file)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

And yet another vote for recurring events.
(I've tried about a dozen of forum systems and have finally found SMF. "Hallelujah". The only thing I'm missing are recurring events and ignore topics of no interest...)

i've heard it's coming out in 1.1

Heh, with 1.1 in Beta, I am patient enough to see features added into the dev's "to-do" list for the following version.  I agree and vote in favor of, more advanced recurring events abilities.

I will have to download and try the beta of 1.1, I'm hoping the events linked to forums is an option rather than being ditched altogether.  One of the reasons for going to SMF was a constant complaint about having to post to an events calendar and a forum to discuss the event.
I know everything, I can't remember it all.

Grudge

You'll have to wait a few months to get hold of the 1.1 beta I'm afraid unless you're a charter member - it is coming some point in the future though :)

Oops, sorry Kindred just saw this  :o

I will check it out ASAP (Thanks)

The current recurring events in 1.1 is nice, but it would be awfully convenient to be able to select the recurrance schedule rather than just have it span over a number of days.  For example:
Start Date -
End Date -
Frequency-
     Once-
     Daily-
        Days-
           all, weekdays, s m t w t f s
     Weekly
         Weeks
             1 2 3 4
                Days-
                     all, weekdays, s m t w t f s
     Monthly
        Months-
            all, 1,2,....12
                  Weeks
                      1 2 3 4
                          Days-
                               all, weekdays, s m t w t f s
                 
Another option might be to have a mini-calendar to click-slect (including ctrl/shift).

Just a thought... sounds like a ton of work!

(Yet Another Vote For A Recurring Events Functionality In The Next Version).


We could *really* use one that lets us create "First Saturday of the Month" style events.

Thanks to everyone making SMF rock!
