  • Satheesh PM

    thank you very much for your update...is it possible to delete old events say more than 365 days?... if you can provide a code for deletion it would be much help ful


  • Satheesh PM

    any idea how to delete old expired event posts

  • Den

    I was thinking the same. I could not find a way to delete old event posts. Anyways, great plugin!

  • Singleserve

    On the detail page: $event->time_created = 0

  • Jeroen Dalsem

    @singleserve what do you mean?

    @den you can manually delete them. Otherwise you have to write a script that (periodically) deletes old entities.

  • Satheesh PM

    @Jeroen Dalse, so how to fetch the old entities say older than 1 month...



  • Baronti

    Hi, congratulations for the magnific work.

    As under the theme of the dates, I get the date ->  Date: 11/30/1999

  • Baronti

    Hello, in my last post I misspoke. I mean I can not set the date of the event. To enter it leaves me 1999. How I can fix this?

  • yumokin

    How do you do, Jeroen Dalsem.

    I am a Japanese system engineer.

    Thank you for the wonderful function.

    I think that I am as follows. 




    if(!empty($start_day)) {

      $date = explode('-',$start_day);

      $start_day = mktime(0,0,1,$date[1],$date[2],$date[0]);



    if(!empty($start_day)) {

      $date = $start_day;

      $start_day = mktime(0,0,1,$date[month],$date[day],$date[year]);



    As mentioned above, I need your help well.

  • Baronti

    Hi, my last chance to help me. I need to configure the plugin for events, but the post is not on the list and gives the date changed .... please help.

    @Jeroen Dalsem

    About access to the event. I see there's an option for 'Private' So basically no one can see the event? No way to invite people to the event??

  • Jeroen Dalsem

    @rjcalifornia you could just set the access to private... and that should make it invisible for anyone else.

  • Javier

    Hi Jeroen, ¿there is spanish traduction for this plugin?

    Thanks for your great plugins!

  • Michele

    We're working on it...in the meanwhile just uploaded the italian translation here http://community.elgg.org/plugins/1148130/1/event-manager-23-it-language-file
