Updating Recurring Events

When you create a series of recurring event, a parent event and a series of child events are created (see more on Event Kinds).

If you wish to modify the entire series of events:

1. Open the Events Manager in the Joomla administrative backend by selecting Components > JCal Pro® > Events from the main menu.

jcal3 admin_event_types

2. If necessary, use the filtering tools above the list of events to Hide recurring events children. This will filter the list to only show Static, Repeat (parent) and Repeat (detached) events.

3. Click the title of the Repeat (parent) event you wish to edit. Adjust the parameters as required and click Save in the toolbar at the top-right.

Note: Any instances of Repeat (child) events that have been deleted will be re-created when Repeat (parent) events are modified. You will then have to re-delete any unneeded child events.

Recurring Exceptions

As noted elsewhere in the user manual, a Repeat (detached) event is an individual instance of a recurring series that is not identical to the Repeat (parent). When modifying or deleting Repeat (parent) events, these events remain as independent event.

When the events are recreated you may have some extra events since the series was recreated. It may be necessary to verify remove the old detached event or the newly created event in the series.
