In short, this modification will allow social groups on your forum have their own calendar area and have upcoming events shown on their group page. Here is a list of features:
  1. Upcoming events for a group are shown on the group's page, grouped by day.
  2. The group's next event is shown in more detail and can be configured to show the entire event description or be trimmed to a certain number of characters.
  3. Members can see events for all the social groups they belong to consolidated into one calendar.
  4. The forum home index page can be setup to show upcoming events for social groups.
  5. Non-members can see upcoming events for a public group by viewing the group's page if the group doesn't require joining to view content. They will not see events for these groups in the calendar view or on the forum homepage, which will help keep the clutter down.
  6. Group's that are moderated, invite only, or must join to view content, will not display their upcoming events to non-members. Their events are also secured, so following a link to an event by a non-member will result in a no permissions error.
  7. Group owners can optionally allow members to be able to post events, or they can set their group up so that only they can post events.
  8. When clicking on the New Event link from the group's page, the event will automatically be assigned to the referring group.
  9. When creating a new event from the calendar view, the creator can assign the event to any group he has permissions to post events. These events will appear in a drop down box on the event.
  10. Admins and moderators can be set to be excluded from all filtering and permissions. This allows the administrator an unfiltered view of the social group calendar, and the ability to move or edit group's events as needed.
  11. Plays nice with Farcaster's Event Attendance v3.0 (RSVP mod).

Hidden threads

If you don't want invite only events showing up in forums (they already are hidden in calendar) this is a quick mod I made.

Note on one problem: The count for this forum will be off. There's no way I've found to get around it - hook_query_where won't work with COUNT(*) since it's joining tables.

Disclaimer: This has only been tested on vb 4.1

Hook: forumdisplay_query_threadid

Installed on 4.1.10. Works great. I think. I am still in process of building my alpha forum, but all looks good with one group. I found in the xml where to change the color of teh calendar icon on the groups page. Is there a way ti set that to use a stylevar?

Also, is the a way to make the events section on the group page to have the same look and feel as the "Group Photos" section?

my current example

Dunno what I'm doing wrong, but I'm trying to add this to a clean vB4 install and it's not working. Calendar.php won't load at all.

Maybe my code editing skills are weak (I've tried a half dozen times now). Anyone got copies of the correctly edited files and templates I could just use as-is, since it's a clean vB4 install?

(Edit - ah, I see the developer hasn't posted to this thread in nearly 2 years.)

Set this to the calendar ID that social group events should be saved in.
Social Group Members will still need to be in a user group that has access to the calendar to be able to view event details or add events, so be sure to setup the desired security
(It is planned in the future to allow more than one calendar to be configured for Social Group Events)

what number should i give this ID?
