    event_calendar Link to this post

    Hi, i am in the need of a calendar that will:

    - generate a calendar
    - lets user add events to their will
    - events show in the calendar
    - once clicked, the date reveals the description
    - let visitors register and pay for the event

    - - -

    I have installed the event_calendar along event_registration module. I can:

    - create a calendar page
    - create a registration event

    But how in hell do i insert the calendar into the Page.ss template????? When i click on the Calendar page DRAFT SITE, it show nothing! Only the basic Page.ss template.

    Also, i miss the Event Description Behavior tab.

    SS 2.4.5
    Event_calendar module
    eventmanagement module (is it the right name?)
    payment module
    multiform module

    Thanks!

    Wilson,

    Please be patient. Your thread is a little confusing, as you seem to be talking about more than 1 thing here. Inserting a calendar into your Page.ss is a theming issue for the most part, and events showing up or not showing up is a very different problem.

    Have you read the getting started guide?

    If the events aren't showing up, my best guess is you haven't given them a proper date/time.

    Hi Dan, sorry about that. Ive been looking around for help for days regarding that issue.

    Lets get this straight. Yes, i do want to insert a Calendar (i am using event_calendar) into Page.ss template.

    I guess i must create a Calendar.ss template and insert it into Page.ss using <% control Page(Calendar) %> in a proper container <div>.

    Did that, and now when i click on DRAFT SITE for the Calendar page in the CMS, it properly shows the content of Calendar.ss.

    But no sign of a calendar (hence no events) at all.

    Do i have to use something like $Calendar into Calendar.ss ?????

    Tell me if i am wrong: if event are outsynched (improper start/end dates), should the calendar be visible, but showing no events?

    Thanks for helping!

    Hi to all, some news.

    I did what Dan (thanks) suggested:

    - install a fresh SS copy on the server
    - using a new user
    - using a new DB
    - using Candy as theme
    - nstalled event_calandar module
    - dev/build
    - created a calendar page
    - created an calendar event page
    - clicked on DRAFT view...

    VOILÀ! I can see the calendar in action along my events.

    BUT, Its still not working on my main site.

    - - -

    Any suggestions on how to debug?

    Hint1: When i do try to see it, it shows me an unstructured page (CCS problem) with the calendar missing (but the events are there).
    Hint2: i had to manually move Calendar.ss and CalendarEvent.ss to show the Calendar page (even if unstructured). Which i didnt have to do when using Candy as a theme on the fresh install.

    While waiting for some answers, i will try to switch theme from MY THEME to CANDY into _config.php.

    Ill start from there.

    Thanks!

    Ok, i switched themes from MYTHEME to BLACKCNADY and the calendar does show up.

    So something is my custom themes isnt working right and conflicts with the event-calendar module.

    Any idea?

    Thanks!
