Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Is in Beta Stage  

Note: This plugin has been discontinued and taken over here. Installing this plugin is *not* recommended.

The plugin creates a tight integration between a calendar and a forum.
  • When an event is created in a calendar, a corresponding thread is created in its forum.
  • When an event is deleted, its thread is deleted.
  • When a thread is deleted, its event is deleted.
  • When an event is edited, its thread is edited.
  • When a thread is edited via quick edit, its event is edited.
  • Links to event details are redirected to the thread.
  • New post links in event forums are redirected to new event forms, except for moderators.
  • Advanced editing on a thread is redirected to event edit.

To set up your calendar/forum pairs, look under "Event Forums" in "vBulletin Options" in admincp.

There is also one template change. In calendar_showeventsbit, change:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I run a forum at http://nwtekno.org/ that is heavily oriented to calendar data, so this is useful to me, though I'm not sure how useful it will be to others. Mostly I'm putting this up for critique by people who know more than me.

One thing I'm wondering is how to get the included template (nwteventforums_calendar_showeventsbit) to replace calendar_showeventsbit when installed. Or should I just tell people to copy/paste from one to another?

@Endquote or Evercraft.
I'm having currently a hell of a big problem. When I tried to set a Holiday for my calendar

Varname : Thanksgiving
Title : Thanksgiving
Description : Thanksgiving [U.S. Holiday]
Recurring option : Every 24th November

The Hack ceases to work. I still can create a new Event, but no attached thread gets made and the nwt_threadid in the Event Table lists always 0. Any idea on how to fix this? Its kinda urgent as I really depend on this Calendar/Forum integration.

Thanks
OS

Erm, hi. Sorry for not being around for a while.

After writing this extension, I ended up getting sidetracked with a bunch of other projects, and haven't gotten back to the site that the extension was written for. I'm not sure when I'll get back to it, since it's a side thing and my other stuff is paying the rent. I'm not able to provide support for the code.

Evercraft has expressed interest in taking it over, but that was a while ago. If he/she or anyone else would like to work on it further, I and the other users would love it.

Its great for integration of the Calendar and Forum. And it works well in 3.5.1 - at least unless you do like I did. Till I tried to add the holiday everything worked perfectly. Tho I recommend to download Evercrafts Fix and update to 1.0 which is somewhere buried in this thread.

Um, it seems as though the money pool for the hack to be continued is at over $240 now... That may not be enough to pay rent, but I would think it would be enough motivation to update the pluggin and polish it off, atleast for the sake of the people that need it if anything.

I'm sure this has already been posted, but integrating the event attendance hack with this would be pretty sweet.

Also a cp option to edit the format of the post title would be great (so not having to code hack) along with a default event type entry (like - all day, range etc...)

I've installed Event Attendance but it seems that the author is gone away since noone is answering so I ask here hoping that someone can help.

What I need is that when someone enroll for an event, he can also indicate how many peoples will attend this event so, I think, I would need a simple popup or text box where the user can insert a number.

I've checked the code of EventAttendance.xml but I'm not able to understand.

Someone can help me? I don't think I'm the only one that could find useful this hack... :nervous:
