JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

custom fields - can I filter events by custom fields content

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

Hi,
I understand there's capability to add custom fields to the basic structure of event record in JEvents.
my Q is - will I then be able (mainly in front-end) to filter events based on custom fields content?
e.g. custom field - free attendance (yes/no). then be able to show only events with free attendance field = "yes"

thanks,
Shuka

Yes - you can either filter these in a menu item. e.g. create a menu item that only shows free events, or using the JEvents filter module you can allow the visitor to filter the list of events being displayed to only show the free events.

Hi, I'd like to make a selector for one of my coustom fields. The point is that the site is for people of tree different areas and I'd like to allow them to see all the events or just the events of their area. I'd like to make a drop-down selector for it, is it possible?

Just to clear, the point is that the site will be available por Basque Country where we have 3 counties. I'd like to be able to show all events mixed but with the option to just show the events for each county, made with custom fields. (here you can check http://184.154.234.13/~athele )

This is very important for me, thank you for your help.

Assuming your 'county' is defined in the managed location address OR is a custom field then you can do this using a JEvents filter module.

For the location 'state' then use the filter string of 'locstate' and for a custom field make sure you make it filterable using filter="1" in the definition and the use 'customfield' in the filter module.

If you use JEvents 2.1.2 then you can use one of the new special module positions for the filter module. See http://jevents.net/en/jevnews/158-jeven ... ub-members for a list of the special module positions you can use.

Ok, the filter module works fine thanks! But I don't know how to use the special module positions.

If you use Jevents 2.1.2 you simply type the name of one of the special module positions in the module position when you create the module e.g. "jevposttoolbar" and the module will appear underneath the navigation toolbar in the frontend of JEvents.

Does that make sense?

You have disabled the toolbar on this page so the pre/post toolbar positions won't work.

JEvents 2.1.5 (out on Monday) will support a new position 'prejevents'

Hi! I got the filter module working, but I'd like to change the layout. I used the jevrlist field and I'd like it to be a dropdown selector. Now it sows a box:

Thanks and merry christmas!
