    I see the Add Cron Job utility in my cPanel. If I choose the twice daily option AND insert the correct command will it work? If so what is the path or command? My Webhosting folks say that they can't help install plugins. Thank you for trying to... view reply

    The cronjobs are not only to be configured for the Event Calendar plugin but for Elgg itself. That's the reason the configuration is not specifically mentioned in the Event Calendar readme as I just assumed that the Elgg documentation would be... view reply

    Rvr I read it before I posted. Still have no idea how to author the code, where to put it on my server. Unfortunately there were a few hundred calendar entries entered before any of us knew that it wasn't sending out notifications. I assumed... view reply

  • uwharries replied on the discussion topic Event Calendar not sending reminders
    I guess it has something to do with Cron Jobs. I notice that in the utility tab it says no cron job has ever been executed. Is this something that I was supposed to know how to manually setup at ELGG installation or should it have occurred... view reply

    I am a novice, a complete layman, worse than a newb. I love Event Calendar except it is not sending out the set reminders. I'm not getting any error messages just no reminders. 
    • @uwharries Let me configure your server. I need access via SSH only. Send PM with credentials (host, port, root's login and password).

    • Croncheck plugin: most likely wrong version installed (the one you tried is not compatible with the Elgg version you use).

      Please don't mix elgg-cli cronjobs with the other approach. Use one way for all intervals.

      I haven't used the message_queue plugin since a while and also not looked at the code. I'm not sure right now if the fact that unsent reminders exist is a sign that it doesn't work. The reminders are not necessarily sent immediately but a certain time before the event takes place. For example, a reminder to be sent 1 day before an event with the even taking place next month would not be sent now.

    • Thank you so much.....I have messaged you with Cpanel info and elgg access info. This is just so nice of you.

       

      I have created a few test reminders that are past due and several of the others are past due. I have deactivated the poor man's cron plugin. Still no reminders are sent and the hourly cron job is still coming back with:

    Thanks RvR! I was able to modify the menu name to "Calendar" and modified the Plugin name to "Event Calendar" (first letters capitalized). view reply
  • RvR replied on the discussion topic Modify Menu Name
    For newbies, I recommend to translate it. You can use Translation editor plugin also. view reply
  • boyenb added a new discussion topic Modify Menu Name
    Is it possible to change the menu name of the plugin? Instead of "Event calendar", I would like it to be shorter, just "Calendar". I tried to search the Group Discussions; maybe this was already answered but I haven't seen...
  • rikmye added a new discussion topic Showing event_calendar/list/ in the sidebar (river add on)
    I was playing with custom_module.php in river and copied the code across from show_events.php (event calendar/elements). This surprising worked and now in the side bar i see the event list, plus a calendar. The calendar is easy to hide but the...
  • iionly replied on the discussion topic Show all calendar events
    Only 10 events showing up (and no pagination to get to the next events) could be caused by another 3rd party plugin that modifies the default Elgg pagination. You might want to test if this is the case by disabling the other 3rd party plugins... view reply
  • Ole A380 added a new discussion topic Show all calendar events
    I can see only 10 events when I click Events on my site. What do I need to do to show all Events?
    • Only 10 events showing up (and no pagination to get to the next events) could be caused by another 3rd party plugin that modifies the default Elgg pagination. You might want to test if this is the case by disabling the other 3rd party plugins temporarily to see if this makes any difference.

      Are there even more than 10 events to display? And have they shown up in the past, e.g. on an older version of Elgg or the Event Calendar plugin in case you have updated your site at some time, or have they newer been displayed at any time?

    This language string is yet another one: 'event_manager:event:relationship:event_attending:entity_menu'. And it's also missing in the fr.php language file. The language string for "public" is part of Elgg core and the French... view reply

  • iionly replied on the discussion topic Where is "attendees" label stored ?
    It seems that the 'event_manager:event:attendees' language string is not used anywhere. Therefore, it won't have any effect to change the French translation in fr.php. The text you are seeing on the site must be from another language... view reply
