Show Events & Birthdays on Additional Forum Pages
Mod Version: 1.1.0, by Farcaster (Coder) Farcaster is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.2 Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 61
Released: 07 Sep 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 259
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This hack will allow you to display upcomming events and birthdays at the top of the forum display, show thread and/or search pages. It uses the forums normal calendar permission rules, so only authorized users will be able to see your forum's events. The hack will correctly install for both 3.5.x and 3.6.0 version forums.

Installation:
1. Use the Product Manager to import the product file product-rah_events_on_forum_pages_1_1_0
2. Configure the product options as desired under the vBulletin options, "Events on Forum Pages".
3. Use the Style Manager to add the code below to the bottom of the navbar template.


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

Note that if you do not want the events to be shown both at the top of the forum home page and at the bottom, you will need to remove the original tables from the forumhome template.

That's it. You're done. Enjoy!

Please find sample screenshots of the options menu and the forum display page attached. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.

it doesn't work on my site. Are there any known bugs or issues with other mods that you know of?

No known bugs at this point. I originally wrote this mod for a fellow who is running a 3.5.4 board, and it has been running there without issue for the past three weeks or so, and I've been running it on a 3.6.0 test site also without any problems. Can you specify exactly what is happening?

And, additionally:
- If you aren't seeing the events on the forumdisplay, showthread or search pages, are you able to at least see them at the top of the forumhome page, just under the navbar?
- Are all the option configurations set to "Yes"?

One addition that might be handy for some: Add an option to select on which forums this information is shown. Imagine someone has a forum where people discuss events - it would be good to show the upcoming events only on that forum because on the other forums it's just an information-overkill.

I'll click install later - I am now busy with other things but I will install this addon for sure. Thank you!

X Days

Excellent Work!

Is there a way to modify the number of days? I would like to show upcoming events for the next 30 days.

Any way to get this to just appear in a vBA CMPS module rather than the forum pages?

It uses the default settings for your upcoming events as set in the vBulletin options for the forumhome page. So, if you change the setting there, it will change it for your forum home and for every page this is installed on.

In its present form no, but I will see about adding it in a future revision.

I second the request for per-forum selection. Although I'd suggest having it the other way round - a list of forums NOT to display it on.

For instance, I use the "Event Forums" mod, which already puts a display of X days at the top of calendar-linked forums. In those forums I'd like to use the Event Forums display for 7 days worth of events, but use your mod to display just a day or two everywhere else.

Other than that, this mod looks perfect for my site.

Re: Show Events & Birthdays on Additional Forum Pages

I get an error when I use it:

Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated - argument passed by value; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of convert_bits_to_array(). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allow_call_time_pass_reference to true in your INI file. However, future versions may not support this any longer. in /is/htdocs/wp1012303_QBSRR1K0AQ/www/board/forumdisplay.php(106) : eval()'d code on line 103
