An advanced Event type for Plone with additional date fields and features like days exceptions and week days
This product is a replacement of the basic Plone Event content type.
Is the main part of the monet.calendar.star suite, but you can use it freely as indipendent product.
It provides a lot of additional field, developed for the City of Modena public event management system. Apart new content data, and an image field, you can now choose:
- Cadence - weekdays where the event really happen
- Except - specific days where the event is not available
- Including - specific days where the event is available (apart from other filters)
Some of the new fields in the event editing form
Also, the “event type” field is now a closed list of values (see below for customization).
From ZMI you need to customize the event_types property inside the monet_calendar_event_properties property sheet.
Used as it is, all the recurring information are no more that data inside the content. Please see the Monet Calendar suite for knowing how to use it.
This product replace the Plone basic Event content type. You can still continue using old Events, but additional fields will be available only for future contents.
For “Except” days selection, rt.calendarinandout widget is needed
Plone 3.3 or better is needed.
