calendar on board index
« on: September 26, 2016, 01:17:20 PM »
Hi. I've turned on the option in "Calendar Settings" to allow events and birthdays to appear "on board index and calendar", however the "Upcoming Calendar" tab of the info centre is only visible for logged in users, with guests not being able to see the events or birthdays. Is there a way to allow everyone to see this?

Thanks.

The guests must also be able to see the calendar itself (in permissions) and, if the event is linked to a post, must be able to read posts in that board.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Hi Kindred, thanks for the quick response, the problem is indeed that the event is linked to a post which is only accessible to some members. Is there no way to allow guests to also see events on the board index through changing the template files or something similar? I ask because all logged in users regardless of their permissions can still see the "Upcoming Events" tab (with the events information) even if they can't actually see the post.

Thanks.
