Illustration 48: The Calendar Base Configuration Form

  • Do not use Tab-Dividers: Places all the fields on along singleform when creating a new form rather than sorting and displaying them behind tabs.
  • Hide location textfield: Enabling this option removes the Location text field in the Event form.
  • Hide organizer textfield: Enabling this option removes the organizer text field in the Event form.
  • Select the cal location data model: Depending on whether or not you installed or are using any of the suggested extensions, you can choose your location data model here.
  • Select the cal organizer data model: Depending on whether or not you installed or are using any of the suggested extensions, you can choose your organizer data model here.
  • Nested Categories: Selecting this option allows the display of categories to be nested in the Backend, similar to the tt_news category tree.
  • Select the default height of categories: Sets the textbox height in the Categories’ record form. The default is 280.
  • Show time values in BE lists: Toggle on/off if you want to show the start time of regular events in the list view.
  • Enable New Recurring Event Interface: If you are running a version of TYPO3 older than 4.1, you will likely want to disable this option. Otherwise, the new Recurring Event Interface is a particularly user- friendly interface.
  • Use Teaser Field: Adds an alternative description to the Display List View.
  • Use Record Selector: Displays the record selector instead of dropdown boxes for fe_users and fe_groups selection in backend.
  • Use New Recurring Event Model: The New Recurring Event Model will use an index table for recurring events, reducing memory consumption and improving performance. Please see chapter “Using New Recurring Event Model / Cal Indexer” for more details.
