RSEvents!Pro generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

With this dynamic slide generator you can show the contents of your RSEvents!Pro events.

Tutorial

Step 1

Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

Step 2

Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

Step 3

Choose RSEvents!Pro - Events.

Step 4

Set up your generator, choose the settings you think you want, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.

Step 5

Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be. If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.

  • Translate date and time - Simple text replacing, which will go through the date and time variables. You will see three examples in the default value, how you can use this. It should be from->to and separate the multiple text translations using || signs, for example:
    January->Január||February->Február||Monday->Hétfő||Tuesday->Kedd
  • Offset value - Defaultly the given time and date is based on how it is set up on your website in Joomla's System -> Global Configuration -> Server -> Server Time Zone. But some codes are changing things, messing dates and times up, so if these values, the started and ended settings, and the date/time variables doesn't seem to be correct, you can adjust the saved date and time with this setting. This option can give a timezone offset in hours. For example: +2 or -7.
