WTF! ZIP FILE IS NOT CORRECT

From our experience with our clients is quite common that some computers AUTO UNZIP template files (MAC computers).

"some computers AUTO UNZIP template files,

be sure to upload your template as a ZIP file"

To solve this issue, be sure you are uploading your addon as a ZIP file, otherwise Chronosly only find a bunch of different files that it won't be able to recognise.

 

 

HAS MY TEMPLATE UPLOADED SUCCESSFULLY?

As soon as you have uploaded new template zip file you can check if your template has been uploaded successfully using these 2 different methods:

Whatever your chosen option, the moment will be always shown as CURRENT (current year, month, day). For UPCOMING default day range is 7 next day upcoming events.

As we have seen before, if "Force main event list date" is not set, event list are shown by default as current month, current week, etc...

Different specific dates can be set in "Force main event list date":

  • Year: set year e.g. 2015
  • Month: set month e.g. for August, set 8 or 08
  • Day: set  day in format yyyy-mm-dd. e.g. 25th October fill 2014-10-25
  • Upcoming: set the day range for upcoming events. e.g. 30

Below, there is an example where Event list will show all upcoming events for next  30 days.
