Display Details


The displays all use a system of Logic-less templates, called mustache. (Named because the curly brackets used look like a handle bar moustache turned 90 degrees.)  Details for mustache are found at http://mustache.github.io/mustache.5.html. All of the tags used are described on the event properties page,  Using this system allows you to alter the display to suit your template.  Upgrades to the package do NOT overwrite your template.  The downside is that new features added to the default template will not automatically flow down to you defined template.  All of the templates can be altered in the administrator console of Joomla.

Date and Time Formating

All of the date formatting used in the component follows the details of formatting in the php manual for the date command, found at http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php  You can set the format for each display independently in the Component by opening the appropriate module on the Modules Manager page.
