Annoying and stupid default setting when CREATING A CALENDAR ENTRY

(1/2) > >>

SMiFFER:
When you create a new calendar entry,
it is defaulted to
[x] create topic - whereever - ("Link Event To Post")

This is stupid and in 99,99% of the cases absolutely senseless.

How can I switch this annoying default off?

Maybe you should configure the Calendar Settings to ‘Allow events not linked to posts’ ...

SMiFFER:
That is beside the point. I have not been asking to BLOCK/DISABLE an entire function.

Read what I asked: I asked to switch this annoying default off = change its default to UNCHECKED! Any help in that regard?

Bigguy:
What GL700Wing says is the only way to do it without code edits.

Maybe to you but not to everyone - I only allow events linked to topics on my forums.

What I suggested does not block/disable the function but if you don't enable that option you won't be able to have unlinked events even if you do change the checkbox default.

Yep - edit ./Themes/default/Calendar.template.php (around line 202):

Find:

--- Code: ---name="link_to_board" checked="checked"
--- End code ---

Replace With:

--- Code: ---name="link_to_board"
--- End code ---

BTW - it's rude to shout - no need to use uppercase to make a point.  We're all volunteers here and a bit of courtesy goes a long way.
