[resolved] Events List re Buddypress groups (11 posts)

    Can I just check a couple of things re the display of events on a buddypress groups page?

    eg. http://retrotorque.com/social-network/groups/club-retrotorque/events/

    1. By the side of each event, I get a small '+' sign, with a label saying 'duplicate this event'. Is this standard? It shows for non-logged in users as well.

    2. Also, this page shows a list of events, but whilst logged-in there aren't any links to view the events, just links to go to the front end edit events pages. Again, is this correct?

    Thanks angelo_nwl,

    Cheers - I'll take a look at that thread.

    And re 2. - I'll explain in more detail...sorry, it's a bit of a long message, but there are possibly a few issues....

    Basically, I think the links on the buddypress groups pages are a little confusing.

    Firstly, if you're logged-in, when you visit the front end Group Events page (as per my url above), you see a list of upcoming events for that group - which is all fine!

    However, (unlike if you're not logged-in) there's no way to view each event in the front end. (A bit frustrating... you have to find the event via another page, or log-out first.) An extra 'view event' link for each event would be great.

    Secondly, I'm a bit worried that an ordinary user might not understand what's happening - for recurring events - when clicking on the links on this page. (In cases where they have the rights to edit these events.)

    (When logged-in) clicking on the event title of a recurring event takes you to a front-end edit event page. Fine. But shouldn't it be more clear that if the event is edited, then this individual event will now be 'detached' from the series of recurring events??? (In the back-end, due to the labelling, it's clear that this will happen.)

    Also, - perhaps more importantly as it could cause data loss - clicking on the right-hand 'Edit recurring events' link takes people to the 'My events' page.

    BTW - not sure why you have to go through the 'My events page' to edit the event. Would it make more sense if the url pointed directly to the edit event page for that individual event???

    Anyway, now clicking on the 'Edit recurring events' link on the 'My Events' page takes you to a front-end 'Reschedule Events' page editor. However - unlike in the back-end - there's no warning message:

    "WARNING: This is a recurring event.

    Modifications to this event will cause all recurrences of this event to be deleted and recreated and previous bookings will be deleted! You can edit individual recurrences and disassociate them with this recurring event."

    I'm presuming that this still applies, regardless that the recurring event is being edited in the front-end.

    Hi again Marcus,

    I've noticed something else about the groups > events page which I think is really important.

    As things stand, there's no 'Add Event' button, for group admin. I believe one should exist, which automatically links the creation of a new event (in the front end) to the particular group being viewed (for people logged in as group admin).

    I know it's possible to link an event to a group via a dropdown on the event form... but for front-end users I don't think this is the best solution.

    Hope you agree!

    Will look into it when I get round to working on the above.

    Just wondering if there's been any progress on an "add event" button or link for admins of groups and for group members (if they're allowed) on the group page itself? I agree it would be nice to avoid having to click through to multiple places (profile, events page) to add a group event.

    Buddypress is already a bit round-about for getting things done, and I'd really like users to do as much as possible by taking them directly to the right place.
