    Espinho is right, the root folder should be named event_manager."_V2.02" is for our internal files. My apologies!
  • Rick released a new version of the plugin Event Manager
    • In the Group main page the event create link is visible also if I set-up Who can create group events  = GroupOwners. 

      I'm not exper but I add this : 

      if ((($who_create_group_events == 'group_admin') && $page_owner->canEdit()) || (($who_create_group_events == 'members') && $page_owner->isMember($user))) {
          $new_link = elgg_view('output/url', array(
              'href' => "/events/event/new/" . $group->getGUID(),
              'text' => elgg_echo('event_manager:menu:new_event'),

      Is workng but I'm not sure if I made the right things





    • Greetings

      Has anyone experienced the event manager widget showing the wrong date? We're not sure why, but the widget shows tomorrow's date for an event happening today. If you hover over the icon, the correct date is shown; same if you select the event. Using version 8.1.1. Any hints would be very very much appreciated...

      With thanks

    Make sure you have the zip library available on your server, if not this plugin won't work.

    The 1.8 upgrade is in our todo, but don't expect it to be this year.
  • Rick released a new version of the plugin File Bulk Import
    • Yes Jeroen I have tried the File Tools for 1.8 but my site is 1.7.19 and if I enable File Tools plugin then this gives me an server error for the site.

      Any help would be very appreciated

    • After enabling this plugin, and entering the API key from google, the following message is displayed:

      This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html.


      According to what I've read about this issue, the problem is that Google Maps Javascript API Version 3 does not require an API code. so I would hope that updating the API version to version 3 would make this plugin work.
