I'm using the Date Repeat API in Drupal 7 to create an interface for a user to add in a recurring event. As it comes out of the box, it only allows for one date, then you have to save the node and re-edit. I've commented out the
date.module which hides the multiples values option which I thought would allow the associated API to show the 'Add another item' button. When I go into the 'manage fields' form in the Content Type, I've set the form to 'unlimited' values and saved it. However when I load the content type, the normal date which still has the 'Add another item ' button but the recurring date time does not.
I'm trying to add this since the event that it is attached to might well have a second recurring time for that event, for example it happens every Monday and every second Wednesday. Whilst I am aware that you can do this through saving and re-editing, from a UI perspective it would easier to allow a user to add more than one form of recurring event if needs require.
I'd be grateful for any guidance in solving this issue. Thanks.
Update: I've been doing some more digging and it appears that the 'repeat' code is a form linked off the
date_request_api, but I cannot see why the field created in the Content Type admin UI does not appear to pick up on the multiple values setting.
