    oh nice

    it would be cool if it would work with 1.8 or does it?

  • jcrestin 941 days ago

    as far as my plugin uses the event_calendar plugin, I'm waiting for the 1.8 release of it.

    But I'll do it ;)

    Some days ago anirupdutta made a revision of Kevin Jardine's Event Calendar (http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/project/733043/developer/anirupdutta/event-calendar-elgg-18). He supposed it was a compatible 1.8 version, but it has serveral problems.I do not remomend anyone to use it.

    I'm also waiting a new release of Kevin Jardine's Event Calendar, meanwhile I'm trying to fix anirupdutta's plugin problems.


  • Kevin Jardine 937 days ago

    Just to note that the Elgg 1.8 version of the event calendar is currently under development and the latest version is here:


    The current version supports iCal feeds (but not import yet).

    I haven't used the iCalcreator class library because it was huge and didn't seem necessary for what I wanted to do.

    I would be interested in feedback on the current and possibly future iCal features.

  • jcrestin 937 days ago

    yes the iCalcreator library is quite huge, and many things can't be handle in Elgg now (like VAlarm), but I wanted to respect rfc 2445, and the library does. I didn't have enough time to create a lighter one...

    Talking about alarm, will you implement reminder/notifications before an event, with some settings like the ability for the user to choose when he would be remind (2 hours, 1 day, ... before)??

    I'll test your version when it'll be release ;) but I think iCal import is quite usefull when you have a large amount of events to create.

  • Kevin Jardine 937 days ago

    No, probably none of that. Probably little more than just iCal feeds as is implemented now.

    So I think that there is room for a plugin that adds more features.

    will the event calendar support ical import or rss feed import for events ? or those this plugin here can import into kevin jardine event calendar for 1.8 ?

  • Ben Borges 511 days ago

    i need Import of Ical so badly, i have all my events produced on another platform, and our working group need import to be able to auto feed our working group calendar..there is just not 1 plugin that does that for 1.8.. :/

  • Matt Beckett 511 days ago

    @Ben - I'm working on one right now, patience!
