It seems that the latest Drupal update did away with our customized Event Date data in favor of some new built-in functionality.
I had to disable the Event content type and create a new Event Listing type, to use the new Date content type. It’s all very weird.
Anyway, I got the view that shows the upcoming events to display the new type, however I can’t get it to go by date yet. So right now it lists all events. Also it displays Dec 31 instead of the actual event date.
I may need some of Mr. Cleanslate’s magic!
