[SOLVED] From - to date field possible?

9 years 4 months ago #141149 by carina

I would like to have a date field for from date and to date. I want people to enter periods for education like this:

The School
From: August 2000 to August 2003

The only date field I can create is just a single date.

Thanks for any help!

I'm sure you can do that using delimiters

Create a date field for the start date
Create another date field for the ending date

and then create a delimiter field that outputs this data, for example


cb_education>delimiter>From [cb:userfield field="cb_stardate" /] to [cb:userfield field="cb_enddate" /]

Yo could even add a third field to add the school, institute, university,...

Then you make the startdate and enddate fields not appear in profile (just in edit profile), and in profile you show the cb_education one...

This is just an example, I'm not sure if that would be the correct encoding, you should check the delimiter faq

Your feedback on the JED helps us improve Kunena. ;)

As the user before me instructed yes delimiter fields are the best approach. As is there is no other alternative. CB only provides single date fields. Create 2 date fields then user substitutions to display the range. Example as follows.

[cb_date1] - [cb_date2]
