Here, you can show the latest event subscribers and comments, the upcoming events module and our newest syncronization module, which allows you to import events from Facebook and Google Calendar to RSEvents!. Furthermore, you can use the "drag and drop" option to quickly arrange the modules on the dashboard.

6. New Host and the Guest Menu modules

RSEvents! has 2 specific menus: a guest menu, accessible to public users and a host menu, which can only be accessed by the event creators (including administrators).

To offer an increased frontend flexibility, we have replaced the host and the guest menus with 2 new modules - RSEvents! Host Menu and Guest Menu, both available in the “Module Manager” area.

I assume that is where I have to set up a hidden menu. where in the RSSearch do I insert the ID? I can't find that.

If you have a different template that you wish to assign to the search result page, you will need to specify an itemid parameter. We made some adjustments to the RSSearch! source code to try to inherit an itemid parameter, from the page where the search is made.

Like your RSForm. Trying the RSSearch but can seem to get the form action to display the output on my search result template. Is there something I need to do? Thanks in advance.
