Hello,

I want to use the calendar on my website mainly for yearly recurring events.

I figured out how to set it to reoccur per 12 months, and I have set "generate events up to" 999 days. So, as anticipated, the annual events I have created are automatically added only within the frame of 999 days.

My question is: will JEM automatically keep creating these events in the future?

For example: an annually recurring event I have added for January 2019 is also shown for January 2020, 2021 and 2022, but not anymore in 2023 because that falls out of the 999 days ahead of January 2019. When, for example in a year from now, January 2023 no longer falls out of that timeframe, will the event, which I have now already created, automatically be added to that year? And so on year after year?

I don't really want to recreate all annual events every year just to keep them in the calendar.

Thanks!

3 days later and still no response... I'll just assume it's not possible and move on to another extension that can do what I want :(

My apologies, it's not possible to use like that. You are free to move and to pay for an other extension.

The short-answer is: yes
Long answer: the frame of 999day calculates always from today+999. So if the event would be the day tomorrow on 2023, then JEM creates the 2023 event when tomorrow begins in this year. But you should not delete the first event of the recurring events. That may cancel the event series.
Take a look at the responsive version of JEM: The Responsive JEM
