We sure could use an events app for Gridbox that worked just like the one on this website:

www.harvestbiblechapel.org/events/

Need it really bad.

OH! This can be done with the BLOG APP as long as we have a layout for the category page that looks like this and a few tweaks to the functionality for time and date adjustments and maybe a couple other small tweaks.

Hi,

Yes, you absolutely right, with Gridbox 2.2.3 you can disable post info and picture in the category layout :)

Yes, but it is still lacking in having the time of an event as an entry. I can manipulate the other content to a new layout in a new theme but missing time and location as data entries.

It would also need to be laid out like a list of events by date like this one.

I guess it's not really fully there yet for this exact type of event app. So maybe you could build a specific event app?

Here are the details of the app


Each event is associated with a single date. Each date is displayed once with events grouped by date.

Each event has a time, title, and location. They are all linked to the event content.




The event content view has 6 elements.
1. Date
2. Time
3. Title
4. HTML Content
5. Location
6. Link back to all events

Hi, Chuck!

First of all I want to say - I'm really sorry for the delay with a reply!
It's really impressive! Thank you for so detailed instruction. But building Apps for Gridbox is not a task for few days. We'll save your instruction.

For the moment I can recommend you to find you some event extension on the JED

Many thanks,
Artem, Balbooa.com

Well, I've been through the JED several times now. I wonder how hard this would be with Gridbox?
