I've made some significant changes to the pieces of the blog's software that deal with events and the calendar, upgrading to a significantly more powerful and complicated set of modules. These are supposed to make it possible to do some things like post an event that happens every Wednesday for a month in one step, etc. (We'll see...)
For now, I think I have the basics working properly. There's a somewhat different upcoming events block, which I'm only showing on the home page at this point; and there's a somewhat fancier calendar (which is supposed to get fancier still...) Any events that happened before today are still archived on the blog, and can be searched for and read - but they are now called Archived Events. You can't create any new archived events and can't edit the old ones.
You can create new upocoming events in pretty much the same way you used to, except that you can now click on the date area and get a pull down calendar to choose and date, and that you can click on the hours, minutes or AM/PM areas to type in new values or use the arrow keys to cycle through the options. (I currently have it set so you can only assign times every 15 minutes.) The calendar will look better if you make a guess and assign a rough estimate of the ending time for things like performances and lectures, even if you don't know exactly how long they'll last. Otherwise, at least so far, the software gives them a one line entry instead of showing the whole title, and its hard to read them...
Please let me know by way of a post or private message if you discover something that's not working properly, or if there are improvements you'd like to be able to use.
