Dated list of events

Dated list of events

This is a follow up to a thread I posted in Power CMS Builder.


I asked:
I have a request from a client to provide a listing of coming events in a sidebar display. This is easy in Power CMS Builder but the kicker is that they want the events to be removed as the date for each event passes and they don't want to have to go back in and manually remove them.

It seems that htere is probably a way to do this using a combination of Power CMS Builder and Data Assist. Is there information I can look at that might help me get this done?
While Power CMS Builder does not have this type of function it seems that if I can build dynamic catalog pages and what not with Data Assist that it might be possible to use these capabilities to create this list of events and remove them from display on a specific date.

Yes, No, Maybe?

Sure, this can be done with DataAssist, but you will need to build the database table to contain the columns you need first. Then use DataAssist to administer the pages.

After that, you will need to code the output correctly to get just the upcoming dates.

For example, let's say you store the dates in your database in the format "2011-07-18".

You could then filter the results one of two ways - either with the WHERE clause in SQL or with PHP later on the page. The easiest way is to filter with SQL.

So your query would look something like this:

SELECT * FROM tableName WHERE dateColumnValue >= CURDATE()

The CURDATE() command always returns the current date in the format YYYY-MM-DD. This way, you will only get results that match that criteria.

Best regards,

Thanks Brian

I was fairly sure that it could be done and I can probably code it from scratch in PHP/SQL but thought with all the goodies in Data Assist things would be easier and much faster to do.
