With the backdoor extension you can do something like this.
@date_today = <r:date for='now' format='%Y%j' />
@date_article = <r:date format='%Y%j' />
<r:if cond=" @date_today == @date_article ">Show Upcoming events</r:if>

I have a News page of archive page type. Users can tag the pages into

I'd like to be able to show upcoming events in a sidebar.
I can search for all items tagged with "events" and display them, but
how do I show only events where <r: date> >= TODAY ?
I didn't really want to go down the route of using a dedicated
calendar extension  as it's overkill for the requirements. I can't
see to be able to do any kind of conditional fiter on the date?
Your thoughts appreciated.
