    Hi Kevin, Thanks for the prompt reply. So the calendar only shows up to my users if its in their dashboard, is that correct? There is no way have it show up to the public. view reply

      1. Any plans making is available on front page?

      2. Would it be possible to add a image field for every event?

    • Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for the prompt reply. So the calendar only shows up to my users if its in their dashboard, is that correct?

      There is no way have it show up to the public.

    • If you mean the Event Calendar widget that can be added to the dashboard or the user's profile page, I think the way this plugin currently works (v0.8.1) is that this widget shows the user's personal calendar. This means they have to add a site wide event to their calendar for it to display.

      You can opt to push group events automatically to a member's personal calendar. However, this only applies to events added to the group calendar after a particular user has joined. Future events already in the group calendar won't be added automatically. If a user leaves a group, group events already created in their personal calendar appear to be hidden, but they will reappear if they rejoin the group.

    Hi guys and girls, Is there anyway that i can post a list of events that are public, on the frontpage of my site. peter
    • This is how I did it :

      <?php
          /**
           * Elgg custom_dash_not_logged_in plugin
           * This plugin substitutes the frontpage with a custom one
           *
           */
       ?>
       <div id="calendar">
       <h2>Upcoming events</h2>
       </div>

               <?php
                  /* Upcoming Events*/
                      $num = 5;

      // Get the upcoming events
      $start_date = time(); // now
      $end_date = $start_date + 60*60*24*365*2; // maximum is two years from now
      $events = event_calendar_get_events_between($start_date,$end_date,false,$num,0,page_owner());

      // If there are any events to view, view them
      if (is_array($events) && sizeof($events) > 0) {

      echo '<div id="group_pages_widget">';
      // echo '<h2>'.elgg_echo("event_calendar:groupprofile").'</h2>';
      echo '<p><a href="'.$vars['url'].'pg/event_calendar/group/'.page_owner().'"></a></p>';

      foreach($events as $event) {
      echo elgg_view("object/event_calendar",array('entity' => $event));
      }
      echo "</div>";
      }
      ?>

      <div class="clearfloat"/></div>
       <!-- end of upcoming events-->

    • You can use this plugin to display events widget on the main page. It can save you some time if you're not a programmer.

    • I found some interesting the post, Im a programmer I don't undestad elgg's structure, I make some code lines to improve my file search modules.

      I need to restict results of my file search, I just need to make a list with .doc and .pdf file extentions,

      How can I perform this change? How can I integrate my code in elgg?

      I make this change just with php code ( external access) How can I integrate this to the defaul file search module.

      This is my implementation. http://community.elgg.org/pg/pages/view/478810/

      SQL: I need to include in the file search:

      SELECT a1.id as idarchivo, a1.string ,a2.*, a3.username, a4.*   FROM elggmetastrings as a1, elggmetadata as a2, elggusers_entity as a3, elggobjects_entity as a4  WHERE( a1.string LIKE '%.doc%' OR   a1.string LIKE '%.pdf%' OR a1.string LIKE '%.ppt%' OR a1.string LIKE '%.xls%' OR a1.string LIKE '%.zip%')  AND a1.string LIKE '%file/%' ";

    • Kevin,

      As a developer I to sometime over simplify problems that I fully understand to other who do not, thus I understand your response. You mentioned that the problem has been discussed many times before in this group. I found 2 instances and neither provide a clear understanding of the problem or any idea how to go about repairing. I know the plugin works as I used it during demo with out issue. Since this is my first project using elgg SE I may appear to be "lazy" in my troubleshooting efforts but actually I am on unfulmilar ground with the data structure and storage processes which forces me to ask seemingly stupid questions. 

      Out of 16 discussions there are 2 report I was able to find on this subject, if there is other areas or forums that may have good information on this issue I would welcome the URLs.

      Started by antifmradio: Event not showing? anywhere

       
      The first talks about a new datepicker, Tried this and failed.... no change. The second I am not sure what he finally did. He had a Ah hahaha moment but failed to post the enlightenment. They talked a bit abot the date configuration but from what I have tried it has no effect on this issue as upon a save the date from the "Start date" field fails to save it's date format correctly. Now I am not sure if that is due to no date being set from form or if it is not the correct format when stored at the data base level.
      From what is returned I can assume that it is getting Epoch Start date from some where whether it is a default value if no value exists or if that is what is actually saved to database. I have no clue referring to my previous comment where I am confused about the data structure some what and my ability to confirm what data was saved..

    • I have disables all plugin's and just had the calendar loaded and dates work fine, I did notice that the date format changed.

      When working, the date from the calendar is in "Saturday, November 28, 2009" format

      When all Plugin are loaded the same field and calender produces "11/28/2009" format

      There inlies the problem...  After working the plugin back and forth till I found the colporit, It is a order issues with a single plugin I am using called Custom_Profile_Fields which seems to load up another copy of the date picker with a different date saving format.

      If you load this plugin after the Event _calendar it causes any call to datepicker to use the CPF version of the date format and not the Event's version.

      Now who get a slap on the wrist?   8-)

  • Shobhit Mathur added a new discussion topic Repeat Option for Events
    Hi!  Is there a way to add events with the repeat option i.e. every day, week, etc? Currently the event_calendar plugin does not provide this  option. I think it is a pretty useful feature to have. Shobhit
    • I third that request! I need it also. I hold monthly meetings and weekly luncheons. Making the event repeat would save a lot of time compared to manually entering them every week.

      Options to repeat per date, or day, weekly, monthly, etc

      My Main meetings are every 2nd thursday and luncheons 1st and 3rd thursdays
