Nice site! Well done.

Couldn't you use the published date to order the events instead of reorder? Although, I personally haven't tried much with dates in the future.

I think people would find Wrappits useful.
To get it in the core, you should fork Radiant and integrate it into your branch so that it is even easier than applying a patch. This would allow a core member to create a branch, pull your changes, and run your tests to see if it does what it is supposed to do. I'm fairly certain that it would not be added until you write your specs for it. Radiant is well tested and any new features should be well tested too.

But I'd certainly vote for it to be part of the core.
If you have time, integrate your changes now and it might become part of 0.6.8, which is shaping up to have some great new features and this would be a welcomed addition by me.

this isn't part of core radiant behaviour....

I thought so too, and submitted a patch[1] for it a while ago. I don't think I managed to convince the gatekeepers to let it in, so I finally got round
to releasing it as an extension.

Announcing a new site built on Radiant:

Designed by Will Brady, built by myself.

I was determined to keep it simple, so kept the number of extensions to a

* Reorder[1]
* Sass[2]
* Subscriber lists[3]
* Wrappits[4]
* Markdown

I considered creating a new model to introduce Event and Venue models,
I decided that it was unnecessary. All the information I needed to store about a venue could easily fit within the page-with-parts paradigm. I
needed to add the reorder extension so I could order on the events

I wrote the Subscriber lists extension for this project. I would have
to use the Newsletter extension, but I wasn't sure how to configure the
server to send mail from our GMail.

Shameless plug: If you are planning to be in Edinburgh this August, be
to check out the West Port Book Festival. Events are all free!
