How to display an event happening every Tuesday and every Wednesday?
* w2 This will show every Tuesday
* w3 This will show every Wednesday
* w23 This will show every Tuesday and every Wednesday
How to change to Month/Day format instead of Day/Month?
$ReminderDayMonth = "m/d";Note that the examples in the documentation are currently in the "d/m" format.
Is it possible for a user to have his own tasks and to also see all events from a "community" calendar?
(:rem:) #include Main.CommunityCalendar [below the user's own events] * w2 18h Soccer practice Tuesdays. (:remend:)
Please help. I installed as it is written, but the names of the months shown incorrectly - another encoding. My site is in UTF-8 encoding. Where can I look at that and correct?
- You need to enable the utf8 locale. Add in config.php something like:
setlocale(LC_TIME, 'kk_KZ.UTF-8'); # Kazakh, -or-
setlocale(LC_TIME, 'ru_RU.UTF-8'); # Russian, -or-
setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.UTF-8'); # English/USA
See the function setlocale for more information. --Petko September 25, 2009, at 08:16 AM
- It did not help. Are there more options?
- On some systems it may work fine without ".UTF-8" (only 'ru_RU'), or with lowercase ".utf8" instead. On Windows could be tried other codes . If it still doesn't work, you could use just numeric dates, by setting the $ReminderDateFormat variable in config.php:
$ReminderDateFormat = '%d/%m/%Y';
- 2011-09-01 10 am Soccer
would show something like:
NathanCalendar: 10 am Soccer
Not a prefix, as the beginning of a line has some meaning to Reminder, but with the new version you can have a suffix. --Petko August 29, 2011, at 05:13 PM
Done -- nested includes should have worked before, but were broken. --Petko August 29, 2011, at 05:13 PM
Dates starting with = indicate fixed one-time reminders that will not repeat and need to be deleted when they expire. If you use a date like 1/9/2011 instead of =1/9/2011, your reminder will show within "pastdays" then hide for a year: you probably edit the page more often and could do some cleanup of your expired reminders.
I have first a section for temporary reminders at the beginning of my page, then a section for monthly reminders, then 12 sections for yearly reminders (birthdays...). It is easy to edit the most often changing dates at the top of the page and to once in a while add a yearly reminder at its section further below. --Petko September 01, 2011, at 03:26 PM

Is it possible to have reminders with the date format
- 2013-07-23 Club night
speaker on the native flora and fauna of the Auckland islands
and an update on the new Kime Hut
As long as it is on a single line in the wiki source, yes. Also, if you don't need yearly repetition and count, use
* =2013-07-23 for a one-time sticky reminder. --Petko March 27, 2013, at 01:29 AM

Please help, I installed the recipe as written and when I tried a few birthdays to test it (in the Wikisandbox page, pmwiki version 2.2.109) I get the following errors:
Please test the latest version, just released. --Petko July 31, 2018, at 05:45 PM
Yes, this solved the error messages. Thank you for a great recipe! Ugo
