This addon will add a calendar to your Ubb. It will also add a new profile field for birthdays which will show up on the calendar, and integrate the calendar with posting in a selected announcements forum. its all templatized and wordletized, and adds a CP interface.

LK has now taken over development of this modification as i dont have the time to continue work on it myself. thanks LK, i really apreciate it

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (admin), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

%event_desc = (
Public chat => "This is only a testpost",

Very cool.

A good idea would be making spaning events. Admins and mods could span a message over a series of days. It would save the admins the trouble of adding the one event on 4 different days.

I was wondering, can users view past events and dates on the calender? Because if so then you could add many features like 1, 2, 3 year anniverseries, 1000, 10000 post anniverseries, mark when new admins/mods joined the forum team, stuff like that.

Much needed facility Jordo, and yes was very easy to install, however as with previous posts I had 'similar' issues.

Upon further tests, there are a couple of annomolies:

  • Add event defaults to the NEXT day, have to reselect the date to be entered for today.
  • First event added worked fine, second event wipes out previous event entry
  • Enter a space or special character in the title and it comes up with the syntax error as previously described.

Otherwise a GREAT addition and a much sought after one by us, keep it comeing laugh

Using ver 604d

Hi,

yes, this is really great - go on developing, I think this hack will be one of the best UBB hacks when finished.

Salmon - error fixed, reupload ubb_lib_calendar.cgi and the 2 files in the calendar dir.

Balbanes - yes your can view any past events, those are some very good ideas and i will most definetly try to incorporate them by the next version or so! smile

boondock - i hope you meant "no" problems laugh

air_borg - fixed the day dropdown box, not sure about the adding a second event problems, i havent been able to replicate that hopefully it was related to the space/special chars bug which is now fixed.

you may now include any space or special character except for exclamation points (it will give you a FYI message if you try to put one in). zip updated like i said above, just upload ubb_lib_calendar.cgi to upgrade.

MasterMind - thats just a require call that failed so either the file is corrupt/not there, or the 1; is missing at the end. open up public_calendar_events.cgi and it should look like this:

im almost done with making the main display of it templated, and wordletizing it, so there'll be a new version later today.

NitroSimSev - edit that file and put quotes around TVM Challenge so it looks like "TVM Challenge" that will fix it. the newest version does this automatically so you should be able to put spaces in with no problem.

MM - it messed up only when you tried to add an event and that didnt work? did it say it had added the event then give that error or did it say anything else? this is persistent even in the new version? - did you upgrade or clean install to the new version?

sorry im answering with so many questions, but i cant replicate the bug in any way. smirk

jigga - upgrade to latest, you have an old version of ubb_lib_calendar.cgi. sorry, i know im changing versions as fast as infopop is changing ubb versions hehehe. smile


zip updated with new version 1.0a

a few little bugfixes/touchups and
The new feature:
Member birthday integration.
members can now edit their profile to add a birthday. the birthday profile field is field 55 so it will be ubb6.1 compliant (thanks allen wink ). newly registering users will also be able to set their birthday when they register. the birthdays are automatically added to the calendar events list, with a nice description. changing your birthday will delete your old birthday entry from the calendar and replace it, so no worries. laugh

YES!!

This and polls have been a "pet" project of mine for many months jordo... thank you thank you thank you :D:D:D

About the only feature that might be added would be to have a field in the announcements forum that you could type a date in to correspond to the announcement and the title for the announcement (or a secondary "event title") would appear in the calendar with a link back to the announcement - this might prove to add too much complexity to it, but just a thought smile

excellent work tho... laugh
