Upcoming Events on Top of Pages

vB Version: 4.0.1 Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 50
Released: 28 Jan 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 24
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This is what I did to make Upcoming Events display nicely on the top of Forumhome:

Added below {vb:raw header}{vb:raw navbar}

<!-- upcomingevents -->
<div id="wgo" class="collapse wgo_block">
<h2>
<span>
Upcoming Events
</span>
</h2>
<div class="floatcontainer">
<div id="wgo_events" class="wgo_subblock">
<ol class="commalist">
{vb:raw upcomingevents}
</ol>
</div>
</dl>
</div>
</div>
<!-- upcomingevents -->

Note that the commalist class reduces the space this takes and displays nicely.

If anyone can help by explaining how this can be added to all pages I would be grateful.

Yes, but it looks like he actually manually coded it out of WGO at the bottom.

Yes, I did that myself since I found very few people scroll to the bottom of forumhome. This way people cannot help but see it. It looks like CoronasRGood eliminated the commalist code to keep the original style.

<ol class="commalist">
{vb:raw upcomingevents}
</ol>

You can also just copy & paste the appropriate section from WGO and keep it as it is originally but in a more visible spot.

Sheesh, well I had to do something to fix all the broken dates in the product version. Done, but I sure wish you could get the product fixed as I really don't look forward to doing manual edits with every upgrade.

What did you have to do Videx? I'm at 4.0.2 myself so haven't dealt with upgrades.

I just did what you just suggested - copied and pasted the whole upcoming events block to the top of the forumhome template. As per my post in the other thread, all the dates were a day off with the product, as well as events being posted from 5 days out instead of the next 3 days.

It's not broken. Though there are way too many versions floating around right now. You should go over to the add-on thread and try that one before messing with this version which requires manual editing.

If you still need to post a problem, we'll need more info. First, assure us you're using the default style and have tried disabling all other products. Then at least give us a link.

Attached is the plugin version I'm using on my forum now - vBulletin 4.0.2. I have no idea if it works on later versions.

Arrow VOTE in Jira for vB Calendar Widget - Corporate Solution!


vB has been taking their sweet time developing a corporate solution for this Calendar Widget. It has been logged in Jira, but there have only been TWO votes so far and it appears to have been deprioritized.

Please log into Jira and VOTE FOR THIS! It will only take you a minute: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-7656

A number of customer have asked for a calendar widget that will access the current site calendar. That is distinct from the current cms calendar widget that displays dates on which articles have been published. Wayne also feels this should get a high priority.

I've added this but the headerbar isn't displaying. Any ideas where I could be going wrong? - www.t-muscle.co.uk

Woot! Thanks for this. My writing group REALLY uses this, now they can't miss an upcoming event because of not scrolling down.

not sure if it will show to unregistered guests but here's my link:
http://dawnsistersweyr.net/forum.php

I saw where someone got it to scroll left to right marquee style... is there a way to scroll it top to bottom (like the words at the beginning of Star Wars)?

I'm going to see if i can figure out how to make it show on other forum pages as well... I have an idea......

If you only want the top upcoming events to show to the usergroups as set in vB Settings>Options then add
<vb:if condition="$show['upcomingevents']">
at the beginning
and
</vb:if>
at the end
