Hello! .... First of all ... excuse me for my bad english .... Second .... I'm new of Silvestripe ...
I have just downloaded the latest event calendar module.
So I have extracted the file and placed event_calendar folder at the root of silverstripe installation....
Then I have run localhost:8080/ss/db/build?flush=1

but .... I don't find "Calendar" in my silverstripe site ...

Can you help me??
Thank you!

It should be an option in your "Create" dropdown menu. When you ran dev/build, was there any green output? That means it created the tables in your DB successfully.

Also, make sure the folder is called "event_calendar" and not "event_calendar_r123" or whatever the name of the ZIP file is.

After uploading event_calendar in the root you need to do a dev/build.

After you do dev/build do you still get this error?

When installing a module, make sure your site is in dev mode so you can get verbose errors.

Does this module work with version 2.3.7 of Silverstripe? I wasn't sure from reading its information. When I install it all I get is a completely blank screen no matter what I do, which would suggest it doesn't work with 2.3.7

Yes it does.

Make sure you download the branch for 2.3:

Also you need dataobjectmanager for event calendar to work. Again you need to make sure you get the 2.3 branch:

So I've downloaded and am using the versions you suggested but I'm still getting a blank screen when I do /dev/build.

My Apache error log has the following message

[Wed May 05 20:13:02 2010] [error] [client ::1] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PROTECTED, expecting ';' or '{' in /path/to/htdocs/silverstripe/event_calendar/code/CalendarUI.class.php on line 117

is this a wrong version of PHP or something problem?

Thank you.
