        The configuration options for this gadget are far too limited, making the gadget virtually a liability rather than a feature. Right now, by default and without any configuration options, it shows Title, Start Date and Location. Our members find the start date exceptionally confusing. Yes, despite the fact that the heading says "Upcoming Events" and despite the fact that they can click through and see the event details, including start and end date. It would be nice if we could pick which fields from the upcoming event are displayed in the gadget. Or at least provide an option to only display the event title...which would force a user to click through for ALL the details.

        In the mean time, I've had to put this hideous NOTE on immediately below the gadget....
        NOTE: The dates listed above are the START date. To see the END date, click through to the event details. In most cases, the END date is also the registration deadline.

        My only other option is to ditch the entire gadget (which defeats the easy dynamic benefit of the WA gadgets) and manually manage the content on the page. This starts to dilute the cost/benefit of using WA.

        The "upocming Events" - to allow for public view of name of event only... ability to suppress location / individulal names etc.
