EventList Plugin KonfigurationPlugin Configuration

Please active the Plugin after installation (Extensions - Plugins).

You can limit the Plugin to articles of certain categories. Furthermore, you can define whether or not child categories of the selected categories should be included.

You can configure the time format. This choice will determine how your starting and end time will be formatted during data entry in the backend. If the entered format does not match this choice, an error message will be issued.

The following pre-defined formats are available:

  • 24h format with leading zero, e.g. 09:00
  • 12h format with leading zero, e.g. 09:00 AM
  • 24h format without leading zero, e.g. 9:00
  • 12h format without leading zero, e.g. 9:00 AM
  • Free format (not recommended!): A separate text field will appear, where you can enter a Regex term. Please make sure that the time formatted according to this Regex term is recognized as valid time by PHP’s date function, otherwise it will not be possible to save the event infos.

Finally, you can select whether or not the InfoBox is displayed with a title (default: "Info") or not.

For a pre-defined template position, please choose the position in the list of available positions. Under "Menu Assignment" you can define the pages the module is displayed on.
