extcal Module - How do I get events in progress in the list of upcoming events?

I am using the extcal module and I'm very happy with it.

There is a minor point re the list of upcoming events. This is available as a block which I include in my home page. However, the events in the list are only future events. If I have a long running event, e.g. an exhibition that runs over several days or weeks I would like to see this event in the list. In other words, the list of upcoming events should be those events with an end date in the future rather than a start date in the future.

Does anyone know what changes are needed to do this?

I think I figured it out.

I changed a line in extcal\class\event.php which was:

$criteriaCompo->add(new Criteria('event_start', $time, '>'));

to:

$criteriaCompo->add(new Criteria('event_end', $time, '>'));

This is line 241 in my version.

Good find

Perhaps you could visithttp://www.zoullou.net/ and ask that this be made a switchable setting in future releases?

Edit:
Link corrected

Very nice find... Have you had any problems from changing the code?

Be carefull with eXtCal.

In dev. version 2.1.6 multiple XSS vulnerabilities have been found. See bug-report.

I asume that previous versions have these probs too.

Make sure you have Protector installed anyway!!

That's discouraging news. Unfortunately though, if you want a calendar, there's just not much choice except for piCal which I've tried numerous times and always wind up deleting.

Sure hope zoullou gets this thing fixed and keeps improving it.

No problems. I just need to remember to retrofit the change if I need to update to a new version of the module at some time in the future.

I've done the same test for eXtCal 2.0.4 and no vulnerabilities were found. This version should be safe to use.

Wondering why so many vulnerabilities exist in dev. version 2.1.6.

I suspect "because it's a dev version" is the answer. Zoullou's having to rewrite a lot code to ad new features such as recurring events, etc and it might be that he's not got it tied down yet.

Have you posted on his Forums? He welcomes feedback and helpful advice.

Cheers
