Hi Chris

When an event is added to the Calendar function and set to repeat daily it displays properly , but if you advance to the next month view the item displays/repeats 1 time the first day, two times the 2nd , 3 times the 4th until the last day in the month there are dozens of duplicate entries. Please advise.




Cheers,  Doug

Hi Doug,

I know we did some custom calendar work for you, but my memory is failing me as to whether this involved PHP code modifications that wouldn't have made it into the mainline ocPortal release yet. So, just in case, I have manually deployed two fixes to issues I found when testing this (I still had access).

I can see the problem still is not solved, so I am continuing to work on a solution.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks Chris, I think the only custom change was to the display to eliminate 12am to 6am in the daily view. The client uses this product quite extensively and I guess is giving it quite the shakedown. They had not used the repeat function until recently so we were not aware of this bug until then.

Fixed :).

This affected deep recurrences of time-spanned events. It was an error in our fast-forward code that is designed to stop it having to calculate every instance of that event up to the time window you're looking at.

Well-settled

Is this a hotfix to the OCP code, or is this site specific? I use calendaring functions extensively as well.

Yes, the hot fix was filed in the bugs catalogue.
