    Hi,

    I am going to be developing a website for a convention with multiple tracks i.e. multiple sessions in each time slot. Will this plugin allow me to do this?

    Thanks.

    John

    Did you get your answer to this? I'm trying to do the same thing, but I'm trying to figure out how to modify the PHP code to accomplish this.

    Here's what I think would work (in theory):

    Find all sessions with the same time
    Display the time once
    Display all the sessions
    Find all sessions with the next same time

    I'll share when I figure it out. I think it would be easiest with some kind of double loop, maybe.

    No not yet. I gather from what you've said you've got the plugin installed and it doesn't offer this 'out of the box' as a template or something?

    Would love to see what you come up with. I'll hopefully be looking at it soon too so I'll do the same.

    Right. I'm the lead organizer and designer behind PodCamp Cincinnati. This social-media conference will have several concurrent sessions, almost like tracks.

    I want to turn this:

    ---
    10:00 Session 1a
    ---
    10:00 Session 1b
    ---
    10:00 Session 1c
    ---

    in this:

    ---
    10:00 Session 1a
    Session 1b
    Session 1b
    ---

    or:

    10:00 Session 1a | Session 1b | Session 1c

    I'm going to be working on a website for a UK gaming convention in the new year. Their current website is in WordPress and I am hoping to keep it that way while providing them super-smart functionality like this plugin seems to be able to offer.

    I need to find some time to get this plugin installed and have a play.

    I think we do both want essentially the same thing. I want parallel schedules for separate rooms, you want parallel schedules for separate tracks.

    Are you familiar with PHP? I'm reading through stuff about multiple loops and trying to see if that can help me. But I'm a designer, not a programmer.

    Yes I am a designer and front-end developer. I need to find some time to install the plugin and play with it.
