Support » Plugin: Sogo Calendar Widget » PHP error, more customization

    Hello.

    After searching through dozens of event plugins, I couldn’t find what I was looking for. All we wanted was to insert a few event related fields to standard posts with their respective widgets, not creating a whole new taxonomy/post-type, like all plugins do, where the ‘events’ don’t even publish under standard posts.

    In the end, I didn’t find what I was looking for. So my only option right now is to add custom fields with event date and location via ACF and fetch them via a calendar widget, like this one. I tested it a bit, and it’s promising, but lacks a few features.

    First of all, I get a PHP error:

    Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; sogo_calendar_widget has a deprecated constructor in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/sogo-calendar-widget/plugin.php on line 30

    (using PHP 7.0) and as long as the plugin is active, my navigation mega menu menu is affected (screenshot).

    If we can solve these errors, I’m all for using this widget, in the hopes that it will be further customized; changing the start day from Sunday to Monday, different colors (perhaps picking the custom color, if there is one, of the category page where the widget is displayed), adding something before each entry, like the post’s thumbnail, or an icon/dot with a custom color (it can also fetch the color from a custom field, since ACF can create color picker field type), option to add the date/time and location before or after the post’s title etc. All these could be displayed in a hover action perhaps, if it’s too much info to fit in the sidebar.

    The plugin could be further expanded with a full calendar page with more info/custom fields to choose from.

    Please let me know in which state is the plugin right now, if you’re planning an update soon etc. cause I’d love to use it for our newsmag.
