Hi There. Really enjoying testing out this plugin. I was hoping to raise these questions (sorry if already covered in the extended discussion above - I did not see them quite addressed directly):
Calendar View: Is there a way to show the time of the event in the calendar view? (right now just seems to show event title)
Calendar view: Is there a way to view by week, not just month? By week is the default I would prefer.
Time Zones on the Event listing in a post: To clarify, does the time shown here adjust to a user’s time zone?
Feature request: Would be very helpful if users could say they want to go to an event while looking at it in the Calendar view (not having to go to the specific post where the event is listed). Basically, my users would prefer to just go to the Calendar view and handle all events stuff from that view, where they can see the big picture.
Yep, which is weird from a usability and UI perspective. Why is there a hard character limit for one field and not for another when they can be used for the same purpose? So there’s no good reason for the 30 character limit in the Event title?
There’s a lot of issues around adding an ending time to the event.
The times on my current day event with starting and ending time reverted to a time 16-17 hours earlier - a different timezone? - and when I tried to edit it back to the actual time in the evening, it changed it to the next day instead. I ultimately could not get it edited to display the correct times, and had to remove the ending time in order to get the correct start time to stick.
Sorry to be a pest, but is there any update or ETA on the timezone issue fixes? I have been asking my users to change their events to UTC time before posting, which only resolves part of the problem, unfortunately.
I have set up my forum to have categories for each state in order to allow my community members to find events in their area. I am considering building out a more dedicated events page within wordpress, that automatically posts the events to discourse for future discussion. That way, I can display the events on a map, calendar and allow users to search for events near them.
Is it possible to use Discourse to handle my events with location and allow users to find events near them, instead of having to use wordpress for events. Is this possible with this plugin or some customization?
No idea. I host my own. I do not understand why you would pay anyone to manage your discourse if they were unwilling to install a plugin. I would imagine they would have zero trouble installing a plugin or theme component for you.
Would it be possible to add a html element for the absolute date <span class="event-date event-absolute-date future"> in the topic list ? Idealy that would be displayed before the title, next to the pin, as it was done in the Events Plugins.
I think lonely attributes for the date start like day="14" month="06" year="2022" would be easier to deal with than data-starts_at="2022-06-14 18:00:00" in order to add a custom display with CSS.
Maybe something can already be done with CSS from attr(starts_at), but I don’t know how to manage the data.
