puhhh,

is there no easy way?

I have more than 200 events whith this plugin on my homepage.

And i'm not a PHP coder.
Only User :-)
simple editing :-)

can someone give me a workaround for the option button?

I think 1 of 20 Event is importend so that i wont it on the index.php
and not in the archive.

LG
