[Plugin: Event Calendar / Scheduler] Features request (17 posts)

    Hi,

    Wow, sounds like almost the perfect plugin... :
    Few thing still, hierarchically ordered :

    1. please add the support of colors based on category
    2. Add the category list choice when someone wants to add a new event
    3. maybe a checkbox (in the backend) to automatically create a post once an event is created ?

    Is these features planned ? I'll use this plugin with the Geo Mashup one, and bam, we have the perfect events plugin :-)

    Thanks for letting me know

    (1) and (2) - will be included in the next version ( the component already can do such things, just need to create an admin GUI )

    (3) - There is a button on post-creating toolbar, which can be used to add the event.

    Thanks for your answer.
    About 1&2 : Do you have any idea of a possible release time (just to have an idea) ? If it's in a long time, could you explain how to do it ?

    About 3 : I was talking about the front-end calendar, not the backend post creating toolbar.
    For the moment, if someone adds an event directly in the calendar, it does not automatically create a post.

    And a 4th one : Is there a way to sort the events by the event start date & not by the post date time ?

    Thanks

    Do you have any idea of a possible release time

    We have plans to release dhtmlxScheduler 2.2 in the February. It will take about week after that to release new version of WP plugin.

    If it's in a long time, could you explain how to do it ?

    Admin part will look similar to http://screencast.com/t/NjliYzE3NW
    So you will be able to create any set of extra field, with possibility to define event coloring for possible options.

    From user perspective , it will look as select box in a details form

    Is there a way to sort the events by the event start date & not by the post date time ?

    Currently it not possible, but we already have such fix for the next version.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    And about these other two important features on the front-end calendar ?
    - is it possible that a click on one event in the calendar will redirect to the post, or that a link to the post is attached to the detailed view of the event ?

    - About 3 : I was talking about the front-end calendar, not the backend post creating toolbar.

    Is it doable ?

    Component can be configure to show event's for each post in blog. In such case clicking on event will redirect to post's page.

    Technically it possible to assign any extra info or onclick actions to the events in scheduler, but it will require manual modifications in plugin's code.

    For the moment, if someone adds an event directly in the calendar, it does not automatically create a post.

    There is no technical problems, but I'm not sure how it can be done in configurable way - there are a lot of parameters which can be configured for new post in blog. Is creating of dummy blog post with same content of event will work in your case?

    Can't we just add a 'click here for more details' in the lightbox that would link to the post ? I guess this wouldn't require a lot of extra modifications in the plugin's code.

    That would be a good start. I'm not asking to replicate the whole admin user interface of WordPress outside of the admin area, but creating a dummy post with the content of the event would be already awesome (and eventually choosing for a category at this stage already).

    Afterwards, we can still edit the tags, edit the categories, edit everything we want in the admin area.

    Could you share it already ? It's the only thing that blocks me from using this plugin instead of other event scheduler solution at this moment ?

    Thanks

    1. When showing blog posts as entries, the plugin does not respect Draft status, so drafts show in the calendar.
    2. Is it true that you can either show blog posts or events, but not both? Shouldn't that be on a per-instance insertion of the the plugin? I might want both on the same calendar, or one of each somewhere on the site. Or is it just that the event adminstration section vanishes from the admin screen when I enable blog postings?

    To fix the issue, you need to replace wp-content\plugins\event-calendar-scheduler\scheduler.php with http://support.dhtmlx.com/x-files/scheduler_2_1/scheduler_wp_fix.zip

    Problem confirmed, we will fix it in nearest time.

    Is it true that you can either show blog posts or events, but not both?

    Currently it possible to use only one mode , not both in same time. If both type of events will be rendered at same time it will be pretty confusion (imho), because part of events will be editable and part is readonly. Clicking on some events will open blog post, clicking on others will show details form, and etc.

    The fix is only for the sidebar, not for the index page.
    Could you share wiht us how I could display that for the indexpage.
    Thanks,

    This plugin is amazingly awesome. dhtmlx deserves a happy life and millions for this.

    enseignement, im not sure if you are asking for this. To display the calendar on the front page all i had to do is this:

    <?php echo apply_filters('the_content', 'scheduler_plugin' );?>

    You guys made my week!

    Hi all, i'm a programmer for an italian company and i would like to submit at your attention a patch for this plugin (Event Calendar / Scheduler).
    The issue was submitted to me by a customer of my company.
    The problems appear when the plugin manages datas from input, having "magicquote" or/and "sybase" directive set to On in the php.ini.
    The solution was implementing a function that recognizes when those directives are active and, if it's the case, unescape data.

    The patch is used for the actual 2.0 plugin version for wordpress, but it's suitable for all version.
    I'll send the patch to the Author's plugin as soon as possible.

    Best regards.

    update: after further analysis, the problem does not seem attributable to the "magicquote" directive.
    A link added in the event object is going to escape (probably when entering data into the db) apex/quote which is not removed when presenting the data to the user. Probabily the issue could be fixed into the javascript code.

    update: problem solved
    Problem:
    Creating a new custom field (Custom Field),there is a problem dealing with apex/quotes. For example, the insertion of a new metatag such a link (href), will generate an incorrect entry in the database, caused by the escaping functions involved in the data storing.
    Then a link formatted like this:

    <a href="http://www.notes-about.it" target="_blank"> tri it </ a>

    will have a change of data into something like this:

    <a href=\"http://www.notes-about.it\" target=\"_blank\"> tri com </ a>

    Caused by the use of too many functions to escape the same data.

    Complete article here (just Italian lang)

    At the bottom it's possible to download the patch files.
