Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Is in Beta Stage  

Note: This plugin has been discontinued and taken over here. Installing this plugin is *not* recommended.

The plugin creates a tight integration between a calendar and a forum.
  • When an event is created in a calendar, a corresponding thread is created in its forum.
  • When an event is deleted, its thread is deleted.
  • When a thread is deleted, its event is deleted.
  • When an event is edited, its thread is edited.
  • When a thread is edited via quick edit, its event is edited.
  • Links to event details are redirected to the thread.
  • New post links in event forums are redirected to new event forms, except for moderators.
  • Advanced editing on a thread is redirected to event edit.

To set up your calendar/forum pairs, look under "Event Forums" in "vBulletin Options" in admincp.

There is also one template change. In calendar_showeventsbit, change:

I run a forum at http://nwtekno.org/ that is heavily oriented to calendar data, so this is useful to me, though I'm not sure how useful it will be to others. Mostly I'm putting this up for critique by people who know more than me.

One thing I'm wondering is how to get the included template (nwteventforums_calendar_showeventsbit) to replace calendar_showeventsbit when installed. Or should I just tell people to copy/paste from one to another?

wow, I think this is a very useful/cool idea.

are the thread/event deletion features optional?

I'd like the ability for something like this to read data from a specified forum and then create a calender event from the data it gathers. Or maybe in post options or something under a post there can be a box to include/scan/add this post to the calender. (if the scan is too much, maybe just a popup box like w/ attachments and the user can put the needed calender info into that box.)

I have been waiting for this since February! Thank you so much!!

1 problem. I'm getting database errors on install. Then the product installs, but not properly. It is attempting to install to a database I do not have.

Classname : vb_database

FD929: try using the Manage Produsts > Import Button, not the Plugin-Import Option.

Table prefixes aren't being considered.

Updated to support table prefixes on installation.

The product can be configured under "Event Forums" in "vBulletin Options" in the admincp.

Note that I've only tested this on my dev box. It shouldn't cause any damage, but let me know if you notice problems.

2. The script is not adding Event Forums in the vBulletin Options.

The options field that should be under:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

is blank.

Just a couple of questions. Can it only post to one forum?

I have a lot of events on my board too, but these events have their own forums. So it would be nice to put calendar events in their own forums.

Also, what happens if I move a thread? Sometimes I will move threads to a hidden forum called trash, will this delete the event from the calendar?
