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.
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.
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.
