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

The plugin should’ve automatically created a form called “zem_event_locations.” Edit the locations there.

Try changing the form “zem_event_locations”, what you are probably changing in the PHP code is the install script.

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

Yes, I tried to edit the plugin’s code. That wasn’t too smart of me…

Anyway, many thanks!

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

I’m having a problem displaying future events.

On our current events section I’m using RSS_superarchive to generate a list of upcoming events.

When you click on a category at left, the upcoming events are displayed using the txp:article tag using the [time=“future”] attribute.

It works, but everyone wants a “calendar”

Thus, for starters, I’d like to use the large calendar to replace what I’m currently doing with the RSS_superarchive.

This is what I have so far just patching in tags and styles from txp.squaredeye…

However, our events will only show up on the large calendar in two instances.

1) When the event becomes past tense.
2) When the event is repeating.

My question… How do I display one-time future events?

Thanks!

Here are the tags I’m using on the large calendar (minus the divs surrounding them)…

<txp:zem_event_calendar_nav class=“minical_nav”/>
<txp:zem_event_calendar />
<txp:output_form form=“zem_event_search” />

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

I had to (temporarily) disable the script on the site I’m testing it on because when I would go to the Write tab to enter a new article, it would have the event form down at the bottom (not a problem in and of itself) and that would be filled with all the data from the event I entered the day before. It was like the plugin assigned those as default values to all of the fields. It was too much trouble to have to go clear out every single field before posting a new article (we’re in the process of moving all of the content from the old site into the new Txp powered test site).

I would love to figure out why that was happening and fix it so that I can continue fiddling with it and hopefully get it displaying the way I want.

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

OpalCat – earlier in this thread it’s suggested you clear all the fields & click publish … no article will be saved because there’s nothing in the article … now go back to the write tab (or reload the write screen) and you should be fine

this workaround did it for me

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

Will I have to do that every time? Or is it a one-time fix?

Egyarnetsky, to be honest, I have no idea :) Essentially, future events are what most users want from a calendar like this and that’s what I have going. What sorts of dates are you putting into your fields? Can you list the data for each field next to its label? What do you have set for the date posted for the article?

Matt – For the sake of giving folks just getting their first look at zem_event a starting point, this may
help Textbook zem_event

Any feedback for improvements would be welcome as well.
