    We've written a simple plugin that syncs facebook events to The Events Calendar plugin. Please let me know if you find it useful

    Ah, awesome! Let me experiment with this a bit and get back to you.

    This is fantastic.

    I did have to remove line 153, the fclose($fp), it was erroring.

    Could you set up the sync to happen on a WordPress action hook? If so, people can use wp-crontrol to make it happen on a regular basis.

    Hey,

    Yeah i had to removed the fclose($fp) line as well but it still isn't working for me, thought I suspect it is something I am doing wrong. I get both the success messages...
    "Updaing all facebook events...
    Events Calendar updated with current Facebook events."
    But still I see not events under the events tabs that have been added. And when I check the http://www.facebook.com/events/upcoming there are loads of events. Are these necessarily for events that created or does it work for event you have been invited to as well?

    Any thoughts on Myth_Pharaoh's response, Mark? While we aren't supporting this plugin ourselves, as you built it you may have a better idea than I do...

    Myth, sorry for the delayed response - been buried in a project.

    The plugin is designed to publish only event you create.

    You should see something like:
    ---
    Updaing all facebook events...
    Updating:885 Updating:1077 Updating:1079 Updating:1081 Updating:1083 Updating:1085 Updating:1087 Updating:1089 Updating:887
    Events Calendar updated with current Facebook events.
    ---

    Where each event that is updated is listed - If you see no events, then it didn't find any events to update. In the case you are not seeing events, I'll recommend the obvious to check your AppID, Secret & events uid. If you'd like me to take a quick look, please email the 3 previous items and I'll let you know what is going on.

    Scott, this is the obvious next step for the plugin - been so busy with things, haven't quite gotten to it yet - hopefully soon...

    Modern Tribe has reached out and offered to co-maintain the plug-in. This is great news, as they will be helping to ensure current and future compatibility with the Events Calendar Plugin.

    I also modded it to accept a comma-separated list of object IDs. My comedy company has two pages it maintains for different troupes, but we wanted both on the website. Perhaps you could add a multi-select option like that in the future to the plugin?

    version 1.0.3 has been released - added support for WordPress timezone offsets and auto update capabilities.

    Good idea Scott, I'll add it to the list...

    cheers,

    ok, I had some spare time today and couldn't resist - released 1.0.4 which allows events to be merged and synced from multiple Facebook pages.

    Upon installing the plug-in i received this message:
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\HTTP-LMI\ReggaeTimes.com\public_html\wp\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\sync-facebook-events\sync-facebook-events.php on line 223
    Please help

    Hey there asiedu3. It looks like what you're noting is a bug specific to Mark's plugin, which you'll need to get support for on his page (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sync-facebook-events/). We do have an officially-supported version of the plugin available at the tri.be site too (http://tri.be/facebook-events/). If you find yourself having problems with that version, please let us know as we can provide support for it on the tri.be forums. Thanks!
