    A user brought to my attention an issue with the date on anew event. The date entered was assumed to be incorrect. I had entered the correct date of Mar 31, but the date that appears on the homepage is the Publish date. If I don’t enter a date, I can’t publish the event. If I enter the event date (i.e. Mar 31, 2010) the event will not post until that date. I think the date that appears on the home page might benefit from a designation of “Published….” or something to that effect. Either that or list the event date in that location rather than the published date meaning that the published date would be behind the scenes.

    Hi Jim Marshall,

    Thank you for using our services.

    The Events module works with 4 dates Publish, Start, End, and Expriration. The publish and expiration date are inherited from Generic Content base and define when the item will appear and expire on the website. The Start and End dates are used for integration with the Scheduler control and define the time span of the event. In that train of thought you the behavior of the events module is as it should. If the start date of the event is March 31 then you should set the start date to this value and set the publish date to the one on which you want your event item to appear in the public part of the website.

    Please also note that the Events View control has settings to show or not past, current, or future events depending on their Start, End dates not Publish, Expiration.

    Kind regards,
    Radoslav Georgiev
