I assume you want this on a regular Seblod list... I think it would be easy if there were an option to calculate the date range. Like it was possible in this Seblod v2 live plugin. As far as I can see, there is no date math option in SearchForm -> Button#3 Match. There are only options for "past" and "future" dates. So, no configuration to set a limit or create a maximum future date.

So, it seems you would need custom PHP code or a Variation to manipulate the date in searchForm.

--- EDIT ---

Calendar fields and date math is possible and build-in !!!

Hi, pepperstreet

Thank you for reply.

What is the cleanest way to use a custom PHP with SEBLOD considering you would want it to be 'upgratable' and portable as much as possible.

I guess, the product "Code Pack" is quite save and very cool. Thinking about a purchase ;) 

Not sure about custom "Variations" which can be exported in Seblod -> Templates -> Variations Button in upper right corner. Not clear how to deal with them, except for the ZIP download. They can't be installed separately and usually come with a Seblod template installation.

"Code pack" is an interesting plug in and will need some learning on my side. But seems to be a powerful extension. Thanks for tip

BTW, what about a module? You might have luck with the J! core module "Articles Category". 

See tab "Filtering Options". Scroll down to bottom and set "Date Filtering" to "Relative Date". Set numeric days accordingly...

Hey, pepperstreet

Yes I was looking at this "Article Category" → filtering option → relative date,  as well... while it has similar concept its far less of what I would need. Here is sample system

That's a J! 1.7/2.5 site? How are the "news weeks" created and displayed? J! core stuff or something special i.e. overrides, 3rdparty extensions?

Yes site is J1.7 and currently working on j2.5 upgrate.

In Weekly news → Left nav is done with third party component and main content body is overwrites of joomla core.

I see. Then you might check and rebuild the same overrides, IMHO. Or do you want to get rid of the old setup and solution?

May I ask you what is your task and goals? Do you want to replace and recreate everything with Seblod? Even the events list + booking... (Is it from OSsolution?)

Hi pepperstreet,


Then you might check and rebuild the same overrides → yes that what I have to do, unfortunately. I don't have any other choice


May I ask you what is your task and goals? Do you want to replace and recreate everything with Seblod? Even the events list + booking... (Is it from OSsolution?) 

→ The goal is to find upgatable solution. And something less php intense as I'm not PHP guru. Events + booking are not getting rebuild.

But this advanced custom PHP table is getting rebuild in SEBLOD... ( not so fast as I would like to )

OT & PS: Just had a quick look on the site and some accessable pages. Seems to have a lot of content, listings and relations. I really wonder that the site runs on J!1.7 (you might remember that looooooong rocky road from 1.5 > 1.6 > 1.7 > 2.5! :( ) I guess, "Drupal" would have been the better and smarter choice for such task. Even an older version ;)

Yes... that exactly the words... long and rocky and trying to get it to J2.5.

Drupal?? Well I will have that coming for the other internal website... and I have no comment at drupal for now... ( that may change in a few month )

There is an easier way to do this. Start with this:

http://www.seblod.com/resources/tutorials/set-calendar-to-today-or-calculate-from-today

  1. So to your search form you will add the "article created" field.
  2. In the live value (button 2) you will set it to default -> -1 week
  3. In the match settings (button 3) you will set it to future (> or =)

And it works. Like magic. But better!

Many thanks, James! Just got the related tutorial link from "Bes" in another forum topic. Didn't know of these date features and totally missed the tips&tricks tutorial. Opens many possibilities.

BTW, here is another related video about "match" settings! Could not link it with the tutorial reply feature, because the Videos category is not available?! So, here is the direct link:
