Support » Plugin: Dimme calendar » [Plugin: Dimme calendar] Instructions on using the plugin — Easy to follow

  • So I’m sure there are a bunch of users out there looking for a calendar that their site users can post to.
    ////////////////////////////
    Dimme Calendar is the answer to your prayers! (And mine too! I just found it!)
    ///////////////////////////
    For the basic install all you have to do is:
    Download Dimme calendar
    Extract to your plugins directory for wordpress
    Activate the Plug in
    Copy over calendar-tpl.php from your dimme-calendar plugin folder to your template folder.

    Then go download the plugin named Custom Post Type UI
    Don’t get any other similar sounding plugin…this is the one that works
    Download the Custom Post Type UI plugin
    Extract to your plugins directory
    Activate
    Go to the Custom Post Type option in your admin panel
    Go to Add New
    Add a new custom post type (no need for taxonomies) called “agenda”
    More specifically:
    Post Type Name: agenda
    Label: (Anything you want…I chose Events)
    Singular Label: (Anything you want…I chose Events)
    Description: (Anything you want)

    Now click “Create custom post type”
    A new admin option should come up under Comments named “Events”
    Create a post in the Events option panel.
    Publish it.

    Make a new Page called Dimme Calendar or whatever you want
    Set the template to “dimme calendar archive”

    Save and go check out your blog!
    You should have a page called Dimme Calendar which has a calendar that only lists the event that you created in your Custom Post Type called events.
    ———That’s it!

    To make it so that user’s can submit events, go check out the TDO Mini Forms plugin. There are plenty of tutorials on how to allow users to post from the front-end of your blog. While I haven’t completely fleshed this out, if you get them to post using the custom post type…you should get a nice user-made calendar!

    ———–
    Any hints on how to setup the custom posts using TDO Mini Forms would be nice if someone wants to write it up here.

    Thanks for the vote. I`ll add this to the wish list and add a post page. Check if i can add a userstatus so you have to approve as admin.

    You can also just make a random custom post type and select it as the post type on the admin page. As long as you have the custom post type you can just select it.

    i been searching for ages and asking on the forum for an EVENTS calendar that works with TDO MF mini forms got go no replys or advice and nothing came up in the search.

    I stumbled on this thread after seaching for “events made easy tdo” and this looks like what im looking for.

    Ill give it a try and report.

    I found some major bugs in my plugin. The calendar works, but the list below is falted, or vice versa. I got an update in the works, including some great upgrades with google calendar connections. But i have to finish it before i upload the code. It will be here soon when i get the time to finish. So please use the plugin, but soon it works even better.

    cool let us know how it goes, i not attempted this yet as i been tweeking my site a little more after i put it live 12 days ago.

    Will have to try this on a non live version first before i tire on my live site.
