Re: [paulmac] Upcoming Events Listings

First thing you need to do is when you select your records, to order them by their date:

'tableName' => 'events',
'orderBy' => 'start_date'

Next, use this code where you're outputting your records:
<?php $heading = ""; ?>
<?php foreach ($eventRecords as $event): ?>
<?php if($heading!=date("F Y",strtotime($event['start_date']))): ?>
<?php $heading=date("F Y",strtotime($event['start_date'])); ?>
<?php echo $heading; ?> <br />
<?php endif ?>
<?php echo date("d-m-Y",strtotime($event['start_date'])); ?> - <?php echo $event['title']; ?><br />
<?php endforeach ?>

For each record, it checks to see if the month and year have changed. If they have, they output the new heading. Of course, you'll need to change the names here to match what you have in your database.

Hope this helps.
