    A user only has two options, either choose 09.00 hrs. or 09.30 hrs, likely they will choose 09.00 hrs.

    An improvement would be a field that allows users to select the event's start hour and exact start minute.
    Yes I was hoping to have a starting and ending time field where you can input the exact time for it.

    Rudi:

    I created two Data Entries both with the exact data (time every 30 mins):

    1. Start Time (Data Entry)
    2. Finish Time (Data Entry)

    Then I created a listing field for each Data Entry:

    1. Start Time (Listing Field)
    2. Finish Time (Listing Field)
    .................................................. .........................

    However, I am wondering if I only need ONE Data Entry:

    1. Create a Data Entry named "Time"
    2. Create one Listing Field name "Start Time"
    3. Create one Listing Field name "Finish Time"
    4. Connect both the "Start Time" and "Finish Time" Listings Fields to the same "Time" Data Entry

    Basically, can two different Listing Fields be connected on one Data Entry?

    However, I understand that it might just be better to create two Data Entries and two Listing Fields.

    Yes, you can use the same data entry for two listings fields if there will be a time frame (from-to)

    anyway, the values from the data entry will be stored in different columns of the listings table

    Understood.

    Thanks for the excellent support.

    Wei,

    Thinking this through, I think a better solution than building a dropdown may be to enter two text fields for a user to enter the exact event start and finish times?

    The disdvantage is that users will end up using different time formats:

    - 8 p.m
    - 8:00 p.m.
    - 20.00 hrs.
    - 2 T (8 p.m.) local variotion
    - 2 t (8 a.m.) local variation

    Maybe Rudi can comment if a time plugin will be added in the future?

    Hi Joe, Flynax has escort script with the time fields. May be you should visit the demo and try that out. There are very "cool" pictures on that demo so be sure to check it while you're alone. May be we can request Flynax to consider implement that time field to the event plugin. So it would be a complete event plugin. Event should have date and time. Those are 2 keys elements.

    Yes, yes, maybe Rudi can comment whether a time field will eventually be added to the Flynax Events plugin.

    The task about this feature for events plugin is already created and probably it will be implemented in the next update,

    for now, you can create a text field and use a time type for it described here:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...ent/input/time


    in your case, go to templates > your_template > tpl > blocks > field.tpl > find {if $field.Type == 'text'}

    change type="text" in input to:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.

    Anyone, know if the time listing field was added to the new Events plugin 1.1.1?

    I looked but could not find it.
