Hello:

I am trying to setup a block in one of my Agenda views for coming up
events in the next 7 days. I have org-agenda-start-day set to
"+1d". However, it is not working- the block keeps starting on Sunday of
the current week. If I set org-agenda-start-day to anything but "7", it
works.

I am using the current git version of org-mode (7.8.11).

Thanks.

Charles

I'm not sure to understand what is wrong and how org-agenda-span is
involved in the problem.

Can you explain a bit more?

Thanks,

OK, I will explain in more detail. I have set org-agenda-start-day to
"+1d" in the block. If I set "org-agenda-span" to anything but "7" (for
example "6" or "8"), the resulting agenda view is correct and the start
day is tomorrow (and span the number of days I specified). However, if I
set org-agenda-span to "7", the resulting agenda view does not start
tomorrow, but the Sunday of the current week.

Cheers,
Charles

You need to add (org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil) to the list of
properties for this agenda view.

See the docstring of `org-agenda-start-on-weekday' for details.

I spoke too soon. I tried it out and this is not working.

For example today is Monday, Aug. 27. If I set the agenda span to
anything but "7" or "week", it works- the start date is "Aug. 28" (I
even tried "month" and "year"). This works even if
"org-agenda-start-on-weekday" is non-nil (my
"org-agenda-start-on-weekday" is set globally to "0"). However, if I set
it to either "7" or "week", the start day in the agenda is Sunday,
Aug. 26. This is really strange.

Cheers,
Charles

This have been fixed with the other agenda fixes.  Please let me 
know if this is not the case for you.

Sorry Bastien. Setting it to "7" or "week" is still not working. This is
really strange, any other number works.

Remember you need to add (org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil) to the list
of properties for this agenda view.

I suspect the user naturally expects `org-agenda-start-day' to override
`org-agenda-start-on-weekday' -- and since `org-agenda-start-on-weekday'
is often set globally, maybe that's the correct expectation.  

still, being able to set (setq org-agenda-start-day "+10d") and have the
whole week displayed starting with `org-agenda-start-on-weekday' is
useful.

What do you think?

I did that already and it didn't work.

Can you share a reproducible recipe with latest Org?  

Both a simple .org file and a simple .el config file
with the minimal setup would help a lot, I don't have
the problem with my tests.

Thanks!

To be clear, here is the agenda command I tested:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      '(("R" "Testing"
	 ((agenda
	   "Week starting tomorrow"
	   ((org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil)  ;;; here
	    (org-agenda-start-day "+1d")
	    (org-agenda-span 7)))
	  (agenda
	   "Week starting on monday"
	   ((org-agenda-start-on-weekday 1)    ;;; here
	    (org-agenda-start-day "+1d")
	    (org-agenda-span 7)))))))

See where I changed the value for (org-agenda-start-on-weekday 1).

HTH,

Sorry for the noise. I traced my problem to adding a "null" to the
variable "org-agenda-start-on-weekday" in a "Any Variable" entry in
"Configure custom Agenda Commands". Brown paper bag time. :-(
