Support » Plugins » EventCalendar 3.0 Question – Drafts

  • I have a question about Event Calendar.

    From what I have read on the site, it seems I can use Event Calendar to mark a future-dated Post on the calendar. I can also include mouse-over comments about the upcoming event. Then, when the date on the Post is reached, the post will be placed on my blog.

    What I would like to be able to do, is Mark the Calendar on a future date, for an Event that has already been posted on the blog.

    Example, the blog post goes up 1/1/2004, and the post is discussing an event that will occur on 1/5/2004. The calendar, would be marked at 1/5/2004, and have a mouse over pop-up that would refer to the post that went up on 1/1. If possible… clicking on the date would link to the related post as well.

    Hope that was understandable. Any help appreciated on this one!

  • I have installed EventCalendar, and messed around with it.

    One thing I have that is causing me trouble is that, I can label my posts “PUBLISHED”, and them give them a Future Date… This gets them on the Event Calendar correctly.

    However, if I do this, the posts aren’t published on the blog (of course, cause they’re set to be pushlished in the future).

    Is there anyway I can set them to be published in the future, yet, still have them appear on the blog?

    Thanks for any help.

    The plugin directions are on the author’s site.


    I have been there and read through the documentation, however it seems that under normal use, this is not something event calendar supports.

    Has anyone attempted to modify it to behave in the way I am describing? Thanks for any Tips

    Harvey: I’m the author of this plugin. I’m currently working on a new version (3.1) that works in the way you describe. Each post has its own event schedule, quite separate from the post date. The first beta should be out in a week or so.

    help.. help.. help.

    im so stressed out on this calendar thing.

    Okay, i have a calendar and future events list on my sidebar..

    The future events function works nicely, no problem.. the links go directly to my single.php file and display.

    The calendar month link (top of calendar) is going to the archives page ( i know, i can make it go to a categrory-#.php page if i want, but that is not the point.)…

    Anyhow, the calendar month link is going to the archives page and the archives page is only listing the category title… the status link at the bottom of my browser indicates something like the following:

    When clicking the calendar month link:

    When clicking the calendar day link:

    However, if i click on a day of a month before clicking on the month link:

    This gives me a nice title.. like: Daily News & Events for September 9th, 2005

    I like that part.. i just wish that when i clicked on the month.. it would give me something like…. Monthly News & Events for September, 2005… instead of the category title.

    here is the php at the top of the page… its a category.php:

    <div id=”content” class=”narrowcolumn”>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php $post = $posts[0]; // Hack. Set $post so that the_date() works. ?>
    <?php /* If this is a category archive */ if (is_category()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>:: <?php echo single_cat_title(); ?> ::</h2>
    <?php /* If this is a daily archive */ } elseif (is_day()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Daily News & Events for
    <?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’); ?>
    <?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (is_month()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Monthly News & Events for
    <?php the_time(‘F, Y’); ?>
    <?php /* If this is a yearly archive */ } elseif (is_year()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Yearly News & Events for
    <?php the_time(‘Y’); ?>
    <?php /* If this is a search */ } elseif (is_search()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Search Results</h2>
    <?php /* If this is an author archive */ } elseif (is_author()) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Author Archive</h2>
    <?php /* If this is a paged archive */ } elseif (isset($_GET[‘paged’]) && !empty($_GET[‘paged’])) { ?>
    <h2 class=”pagetitle”>Blog Archives</h2>
    <?php } ?>

    somebody please please please help me.

    jpdhnc, i noticed the category changed to 6, so those links above are dead. and your site looks ok now, is it? i could not understand your question, since you say it is for a category archive (i’m assuming for the events category) but it is doing checks for date archives.

    at any rate… i see this is your first post- but you might have gotten a response more quickly had you started a new thread, with a meaningful keyworded subject heading. you might note that above your post, alex had ‘resolved’ the original poster’s question, so yours would be lost or off-topic.

    so- if you figured out how to fix your problem, please come back and tell us! best of luck!
