I will no longer support vBulletin because of IB and the agile development, and they are not fixing bugs like they should. Instead they add bloat.

Thanks. Oddly, I just had a moderator complain about not being able to edit an event moments before you posted this edit. Hard to believe 173 installs and so few complaints. Obviously we'd rather see the mod fixed, but maybe this can at least hold us until someone figures it out.

No, but the vb3 version will. See above under "similar mods".

I just installed this and am having permissions issues. I have 4 calendars that are linked to 4 new Event Forums. Two of them will not let me post a new event, it is saying that I do not have permission...I am the admin.

The other two I can post the event but then it sits there loading indefinitely.

Any suggestions?

This is exactly what I was looking for.

John

Verify you have done the multiple calendar fix most recently mentioned in post #284 just a few posts above? I have no idea why the author hasn't yet included this in the download.

This is great! Thanks soo much for developing this.

Sorry if this was discussed already but can this be done in reverse order - having an event posted to the calendar based on a forum post?

No. Maybe in vbulletin 10. Gmail is making some inroads in this direction though - I've noticed if I get an email with obvious dates, it sometimes offers to add the event to my calendar. But so far 90% of the time it guesses wrong.

It would be even more difficult with an international crowd, mixing up the days and months, and even the years.

Made the change in the Plugin manager.

Still doing it.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Real name: Ted
Great to see that this mod is still being worked on and continued by the community. However, I have had a number of concerns with the product for a while and have been waiting for one of the coders to see where I'm coming from.

This mod has been in desparate need of a performance upgrade for years, and still looks like it hasn't been done. The fact that each threadbit adds 2 queries in event forums is not a good thing, when it can easily be avoided.

You should create a thread-event cache in the first one using the already available list of thread IDs. In other words, fetch the events and custom fields for all threads on the page in one swoop. Of course if an entry is not in your cache for some reason, you can do a second lookup, but this would still be a massive improvement. It is also possible to do for search results.

A lot of the code can also be reduced in size by simply shortening the unnecessarily long $lv_vb_event_forums, etc. variable names. And a lot of the code can be condensed and improved in other ways. Some of the plugins are very long and could help memory consumption by moving them to files (all plugin code is loaded to memory on all pages, not just the ones where your plugin actually does something).

I highly recommend having a look at this mod again from a performance perspective, rather than settling with it in a working state.

Thanks.

I would like to use this but I'm also wanting the same thing Ted S wanted. I would like the option of clicking something that makes this an Event thread versus every post being an event. I love the concept of it linking to the calendar, we had something just like this when our site was still PHPBB. But I'm not finding any other options right now either. I hope somebody can take over this and get it back from the dead. It seems really close.

Perhaps cause I am busy with my life!!! I already stated I would upgrade it when 4.1 comes out. I do not have time to update my mods every time IB decides they want to push out 20 releases in a year. I have my own sites to worry about.

No one is taking over this I will still be working on it. I gave no one permission to re-release it. I have not ran any where. As I stated above I have my own sites to worry about, I run a ferret and reptile rescue, I have two kids, a job and I go to collage. You try to add in time for all the half ass releases IB is putting out.

My apologies BBR, didn't mean to offend, I understand about being busy but its seems like a few guys a lot smarter than I am offered to help a bit. This seems like a mod that works perfectly for your site and with a few little options, sounds like it would be perfect for other sites also. I would love to also use it, I just it to work like Ted S was saying. And props for doing the reptile rescue, I had 3 burns when I was younger, 2 albino and 1 het. Again, sorry to offend, just seems like a great mod with lots of interest in it.

Is that all you have to do... LOL

Seriously, I know where you are coming from. I really like this mod but cannot get it to work with the four calendars that I am running independently for different organizations.

I will wait for your update.

Just as a "Wish List":
  • Multiple Calendar Usage
  • An option to select a Regular Post or Event Forum Post
Thanks BBR for all your help...Always remember priorities. Family first, income second and the PITAs on VBulletin.org last. LOL

We're talking about a simple edit that takes a minute to do and another minute to upload. Two minutes for you. But since you refuse to add it, every time someone new runs into the problem they spend hours trying to figure out what they did wrong (nothing), then they post and if they're lucky someone else then spends more time trying to find the solution buried in the thread.

I never said you don't have a life. But let's assume everyone else does too?

Of course, now there's also the solution to the missing edit button that needs to be included in the instructions. So add another five minutes. For you. I wish I could do it for you to save you those ten minutes. Not that I don't have a life and will really miss ten minutes today.
