erroneous dates in events list 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
Hi,

I'm new to this forum and new to Rainlender.

I'm using the Shadow4 skin and all I have active on the desktop is a horizontal month calendar and the event reminder.

However when I go into the events dialog window I see a list of holidays, such as Easter, listed. (In fact, Easter is the only holiday listed.) It is listed for 2012 through 2016.

The trouble is the dates are not correct. Easter Sunday begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. And the further out (years) the worse the problem becomes.

I have tried editing the list to correct the dates and as soon as Windows restarts, Rainlender goes back to the erroneous listings.

I did add the Holidays script several weeks ago (before I had looked closely at this problem0 but when i encountered the wrong dates I renamed the script. No joy. It might have deleted the rest of the holidays but the wrong dates problem is still there.

Can anyone help?

Welcome to the forum, DWFII.

Did you download the script file from the Wiki? The script was updated the last week because the dates were wrong (you can see this post: www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&catid=6&id=16624) or you can download again from the Wiki.

The script file is usually stored in the installation folder. The event dates are not stored in any file, these are recreated every time Rainlendar starts/refresh.

So, yesterday I Dl'd the new (?) version of the holidays.lua from the Wiki and placed it in the scripts folder. When Rainlender opened this morning, the Easter problem was still there.

If "the events dates are not stored in any file" but created anew each time RL starts, how can the Easter dates be corrected? Is it a bug in the Rainlender executable?

Maybe there is something I am not understanding...?

Did you delete the other file, the one that you renamed?

No, I had not. I did that earlier today...along with the new Holiday.lua (in frustration).

But I was near-as-nevermind certain that I had renamed the old script "holidays.lua.old". So why would Rainlender look at a file with an ".old" extension?

Rainlendar just checks that the filename contains ".lua" somewhere in the string.
