Apologies for the cross post, but I got no replies to my post from 3 weeks ago on the GoogleEvents support thread, and I donâ€™t know if my problem is related to that particular app or a more generic snippet problem...
GoogleEvents looks ideal for displaying the rehearsal and concert schedule on our big bandâ€™s web site, that Iâ€™ve taken over and built in MODx 1.0.2, but I canâ€™t get it to display anything on the page. Iâ€™m sure I must be doing something very simple wrong. The call Iâ€™m currently using is this:
Iâ€™ve tried adding in spaces between parameters, taking them out etc. but all Iâ€™m seeing on the page is the title that Iâ€™ve put in as text, not even an error message or the text of the snippet call. Any ideas?
A possibly related question is this: the readme instructions give the parameters and sample snippets followed by a list of placeholders, separated by the (to me) intriguing sentence
The placeholders that you can use in the chunks passed to the snippet for a template are:
Does this mean the snippet wonâ€™t work without using chunks that Iâ€™d have to code myself? Is this the "something obvious" Iâ€™m missing?
I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s relevant, but another snippet on another page (SimpleSlideShow) has also suddenly stopped working - well I say stopped working, but actually the page is defaulting to the home page (presumably an error and I have return to home page in the event of an error set in the config). All I have done is add the installation/site sub-directory to .htaccess and set the site ready to use friendly URLs
Thank you very much in advance!
