Thumbs up Fundraising for Calendar-AddOn (or how it should have been done in the first place.)

When stumbling over the calendar and its functions, most where completly disappointed. No RSS-Feeds, no social networks, nothing. Ridicoulos and until now there are only a few coders that had mercy with us and were willing enough to give that calendar a little more functionality.

If you take a peek on other forum-softwares you can find pretty much all thinkable additions to their calendar-modules, upgrading it to a really useful and attracting part of a community, that should move the almost dead vBulletin calendar into the range of the main focus.

Dont believe it? Have a look by yourself to this one for example: https://xenforo.com/community/resour...ndo-events.99/ . Its made by Jaxel, a former vBulletin-Coder, who abandoned vBulletin and went on to use other software in the time of the owner change fiasko at vb.com and the initial release of XF. Ive already contacted Jaxel today to find out, if there could be any chance to get this one ported over for a use with vBulletin 4.

It has to be assumed, that porting this mod over to vBulletin 4 will only happen, when some users are willing to spent some bugs for it. So, at this point I want to start a little fundraiser, who is willing to throw some money in the pot. Please only add yourself to the poll, when you are serious about that.

Seeing yourself as something like a forums police officer?

This isnt a poll to raise votes on a specific opinion. The poll part is just abused for displaying, who would be willing to give which amount of money. The focus of this post is a request to make an AddOn available for vBulletin. So this is the only forum, where it is in the right place. At least I havent found a better one.

I've coded a simple Events Manager. The only difference is that for personal design issues I prefered to use a monthly listing calendar instead using the traditional calendar.

Other than this it has some great features and other can added. eg In this version I haven't used reccuring events or registrations on events as I don't need them. But I have these feautures (even with online payments for registrations) in another addon so I can add them.

The site is in Greek, but you can see just the interface. Simplicity.

Given Jaxel's track record at XF with crowd funding, I will not be throwing money at him.

All yours, Im fine with that. But what is it exactly to come up with a statement like this? Even when this thread is about "whos in".

Nice, but I miss some core functionality that is in Jaxels:

With this, administrators can define a forum as the "event forum". Then whenever a user submits an event, it will automatically create a thread in that forum, and tie the event into that thread.

From there, users can RSVP for the event, as well as find additional information such as google map integration and live streams.
  • Event scheduling with auto-thread generation
  • Monthly and Weekly calendar views
  • RSVP system for registered users
  • Google Map integration for events
  • uStream/justinTV integration for events
Its nice to see, what others come up with (even when this thread should be about the portation of Jaxels Addon). Nick, are you still developing your mod further on?

To add an accossiated thread per event is just 5 lines of code witn 1st and last of them depending on which addon I'm using it

Wow, just found out what you are referring to: https://xenforo.com/community/thread...wd-fund.67343/ . Thats why Ild only use an escrow service for this. Anything else would be naive.

That's the only that I didn't understood. Most probably is a service commonly used at States?

Guess so, as its mostly unknown in europe. In times of Google Hangouts it would be far more interesting to have them instead, so broadcastings from events could be live on the forums.

Now Im curious, Nick Are you about to adapt your mod to the specs of Jaxels Addon?

Just finished my eCommerce mod, need some days to find bugs and fix them from my microSUPPORT which I gave to another coder and now is abandoded, then to improve my Facebook forum and the I can work on the Events Manager.

Actually in another thread I've already wrote that I want to release an Event Manager as I already have the code as part of my vbClubs for vB3.

If you want to set a maximum ETA, it should be ready by end of February (max). In real can be ready 10-15 February. It will be Free, so there is no contract for both of us.

And my name is Christos

I can say that I've a rich imagination, so I can add even exotic features. eg how about to be able to print the tickets for the event?

.oO(Has he really said "Free" ?! )

I guess non of the forums will have own events they charge for. So I assume there would be no need to implement a ticket-service. But heck..youll never know

Anyway, sounds pretty good to me! Im impressed about your time frame

I'm working mostly with custom projects and when I can I'm posting some mods depending on some donations or payments for Brand Free. That's all. Simple things.

Nor do I read Bild or Focus or anything else from the Springer-Press, nor are germans a fan of Mrs. Merkel. 60% have voted against her and as it looks like, it will be a few more next election. You greeks have a very clear view and are experiencing very first hand, what Chancellor Merkel is capable of.. Ive to admit that the crisis your country is going thru NOW is directly related to her actions and "innitiatives" she started in the EU comission. Best thing you could do is get rid of the Euro currency, sell your natural gas to RUS companies and recover.
