So here it is. My apologies to whomever wrote this function - I can't find
it on the mailing list archive.

Take the following code and save it in your theme's folder as functions.php.
If a functions file already exists, just paste it into that doc.


function mg_filter_the_date($the_date)
  $event_cat = get_option('ec3_event_category');
  if (in_category($event_cat) || is_category($event_cat))
    $the_date = ec3_get_schedule('%s ','%1$s %3$s %2$s. ','%s');
  return $the_date;

add_filter('the_date', 'mg_filter_the_date');
add_filter('the_time', 'mg_filter_the_date');


This looks at the event category for your site, and if the post in question
is in that category, it calls ec3_get_schedule and reassigns that info as
the posts date/time. Of course, this means that you can't access the post
date anymore. So if you have a situation where you need to show both the
event date and the post date, this isn't a viable option.

If you're the original author, stand up and be thanked. I owe you one.
