[plugin] [ORPHAN] zem_event [flexible integrated event management]

zem_event

Introduction

zem_event is a TeamTextpattern plugin. We are releasing it to the community in hopes that it will be a strong asset to the Textpattern System. The plugin is released under a GPL license. See plugin documentation for details.

Files

  • Zem_event
  • Zem_paginate
  • Jquery
  • DatePicker
  • Search Form

Download here see Google Code page for changeset

Alternatively
Check out the working project at: Zem_Event_Code

Instructions

  1. Upload the JS files into yoursite.com/textpattern/js/ (create this folder if it isn’t already there)
  2. Install Zem_event and Zem_paginate in your admin/plugins tab
  3. Create events
  4. Add the search form in an appropriate place on your site. I am currently trying it out on the calendar month page.
  5. Share errors, ideas, forms, pages, templates etc :)

capabilities

User Interface

This plugin adds a new user interface chunk to the ‘write’ tab of the TXP admin.

With that interface are the following fields:

  • Name (to use if different than the article the event is tied to)
  • Description (meant for short desc. – if different than the body of the article the event is tied to) This is textile enabled.
  • date and finish date (with jquery date pickers)
  • time and finish time
  • Location (currently defined by a list populated by a form)
  • Map URL (for events that need a map)
  • Contact Email (currently not obfuscated)
  • Category list which is populated by tool in the event_categories tab
  • basic recurring events (with jquery date picker)

Calendars

  • mini (summary) calendar used for event navigation
  • full sized grid calendar

(both have month by month navigation, and both have been developed with a strict eye for standards and accessibility)

Event List

  • the event list currently displays all events in the given month or date span specified.
  • there is work being done to have the option of showing only single day events and the first day of any recurring event in the current span (view)

Individual Events

All of the aforementioned fields translate into tags for the individual event. The date and location related tags can be affected to be used with microformats like hcal or outputs like ical.

Event categories can be used like tags to show only the events of a certain type, or output to style events in certain ways dependent on the category of event that they are.

demo [in progress]

You can see a demo of much of the functionality getting thrown together at txp.squaredeye.com/zem_event_. Before you will see the full results of what this plugin is capable of, we’ll need to see more folks getting involved in testing, and designing.

testing

If you have suggestions (with examples) for CSS implementation for any part of the “txp.squaredeye.com”, otherwise, sign up for testing or documentation and I’ll throw you a copy of the plugin and a set of needs for testing.

documentation

In progress:

  • You are welcome to have a look through a compilation of emails and tickets that contains most if not all of the examples I was givent to start the plugin.
    Download it here

Support

Other than examples provided at the url above, you can find commercial support and extensions at thresholdstate.com/about

Bugs

  • Make Location field a text field
  • filter ‘event articles’ by section
  • Make event div collapsable on write page

Matthew,

Cool, I’ll pay with it when I get a chance and let you know how it goes.

One suggestion, since all the files are needed, as per your instructions, why not have one download link?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] zem_event [flexible integrated event management]

I got a duplicate column error warning saying something about the “finish_date”. It offered a solution too.

I’m sorry I didn’t copy and paste it I clicked off and can’t seem to get it back.

The download link points to this topic instead of to a downloadable file.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] zem_event [flexible integrated event management]

I’m a neophyte at using Textpattern, so some of my questions will reflect my inexperience.

*When I enter a new event, it overwrites the old event in the database.
*I tried using <txp:zem_event_list limit=“10” /> in a sidebar, but nothing is listed. Viewing the page source indicates that the tag does not appear.

Great addition to textpattern. THanks in advance or your help.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] zem_event [flexible integrated event management]

zak,
How new?
Have you created articles? (without events?)
If so, its no different.

Also, when reporting problems, its customary to include page and form examples.
See the textile formatting for that just below the body field when you write your forum entry.

Thx. Matthew

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] zem_event [flexible integrated event management]

Hi,

Just installed it an when I activate the plugin and click on the content tab (first time) I get this error:
A problem occured while loading the plugin: zem_event -> User_Warning: Duplicate column name ‘repeat_n’
alter table zem_event_calendar add repeat_n int on line 84

When I click the content tab again the error disappears.

Everything seems to work fine up til now.
