Event Chronology Hack v1.0

Hack by : cinq
Tested and working with vb3.0.3 (earlier version untested but should work)

This hack allows the administrator to maintain a listing of the past events that your site has organized.
This allows you to document past event history in a quick summary, and may be useful for potential sponsors to view.
Such events can be in the form of talks, outings, conventions, auctions, competitons, and so on. You are only limited by your imagination. As this hack uses phrases, you can easily change the context to make it suit your requirements.


Installer script

Admin options

Manage current events
- view all current events at one go
- allows for the following ( edit event - remove event - add event )

Add event has the following fields:
- event title
- event image
- event description
- event display order (to order how they will be displayed)

Fully template based, alter the 2 templates created to suit your desired layout.

This Hack is tested and working on vb 3.0.3 but should work on ALL 3.x.x versions as well.
Please read the install_readme.txt file in the package for installation instructions

Feel free to submit your sites if u installed this hack so it can be listed as another live demo site

to be kept in the loop of any bug reports, add-ons and hack version updates.

Yes you can, but it is outside the scope of this hack.
You will need to add code to your forum index.php to query the eventchrono table, and amend the FORUMHOME template accordingly

Why is the image required? It should be optional.

This mod is exactly what I've needed at my board. It could use some improvements, certainly, but so far it's pretty good. I got annoyed with the requirement for an image for every time you added an event, so I removed it. I'm about 70% sure I only changed the one line, so if this doesn't work don't blame me.

On line 93 find:

For new features I'd like to see nested events. For use on my board each 'event' is going to be a timeslot in our RPG timeline, and the event description will be filled with the actual events. This could be made a lot easier, while yet maintaining the flexibility of this mod by allowing nested events.

Not at the moment, but in the next version it'll be the case.
