    Hi, sorry for asking yet another question, however if I don't ask I don't know!!, is there any way to make the events calendar display the current month without a user having to click through the years etc that are displayed as standard ??

    Many Thanks

    Hello @dragon2015 ,

    In order to change the starting view date for the Events Calendar block you need to:
    1) copy the block.events-calendar.tpl file from ../plugins/events/templates/front/ folder to ../templates/YOUR_CURRENT_TEMPLATE/plugins/events/ folder
    2) open just copied ../templates/YOUR_CURRENT_TEMPLATE/plugins/events/block.events-calendar.tpl file and replace the following line of code:
    HTML:
    <div id="event-calendar" data-date="{$smarty.now|date_format:'%Y-%m-%d'}" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd"></div>
    with this line of code:
    HTML:
    <div id="event-calendar" data-date="{$smarty.now|date_format:'%Y-%m-%d'}" data-date-start-view="0" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd"></div>
    Save changes.

    Here you are!
