    Hi,

    I'm working on an event management system where I'd like to have a feature for creating agenda. Each subevent in the agenda needs a start time and end time. So, the date field is not enough. I'd either need a datetime field or/and a time field. Ihave a jquery ui extension http://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/in mind.

    Now, because the items in the agenda are not going to be fixd in number, I'd need to clone them on the fly.

    So, I was hoping to hook a custom field type into the plugin called datetime and another called jsut time. Is that possible without modifying the core pluin as I'd like the client to be able to update the plugin.

    Alos, looking into the code, I found that cloning is something already being worked on.

    The third thing is that the gmap feature leaves a lot to be desired. So, I'm looking to use this: http://www.jsclasses.org/package/71-JavaScript-jQuery-plugin-to-create-Google-Maps.html instead.

    My question is: my needs are urgent, so I will go ahead and implement some of these,. Can I get some support from you on this? And can I do that in a way that these can be contributed to the core?

    Sorry for the typos in the previous post.

    This is a better link for the jquery gmap class: http://gmap3.net/

    In fact, I love the autocomplete here: http://gmap3.net/examples/address-lookup.html, a lot more than the functionality in the plugin.

    And I think, all the major issues vis-a-vis gmaps that the plugin is currently plagued with, will get solved automatically, apart from extending it to support more features.

    Development on this plugin is slow at the moment, very much driven by the projects I'm working on. It's on GitHub though, so it's very much open to contributions :)

    Field cloning is indefinitely suspended - I did a bit of work on it but doing it properly would be pretty involved I think. Very happy to be proved wrong!

    Hi,

    I've forked the plugin on github. I'm a first time user of git, but I have managed to set it up and running and I have also made some updates, so that there are two new fields, time and datetime, apart from date. The code is done, tested and working.

    Now, I understand that I would have to send you a pull request. What else should I be doing to ease your work, here.

    Regards.

    That's great, though I'm extremely busy at the moment. If you send a pull request I'll try and look at it asap. Will be great to have some new features from a stranger, many thanks!

    Hi again,

    And I have a few questions, related to some more development. I don't know whether they should be asked here, since this forum is meant for support.

    They wouldn't take more than half an hour of your time. If I may, how may I send them to you?

    Thanks.
