🗓 Discourse Event

Yes you have two settings to enable as stated in first post.

My bad, I confused “Discourse Event” with the Events plugin, which I also had enabled.

No worries, it’s kinda confusing ATM for sure, but didn’t want to break existing calendars until I have something more stable and good way forward.

No problem at all. I’m very excited for this feature :+1:

One thing I don’t quite understand is how this will work with [calendar]newline[/calendar]. If I add [calendar]newline[/calendar] in the same post, the calendar doesn’t show the event:

If I add the calendar to the category, I get the same result (blank calendar). Also, I’ve never understood why I need to add a postId here (which post?):

2 posts were merged into an existing topic: Discourse Calendar

Same reason, for now this is kinda separated, events will be shown at /upcoming-events for now, there are plans to maybe merge the behaviors at some point.

About the export of an event, it works fine for an admin but doesn’t for the creator of the event, am I missing something, TL related maybe?

Got it. Sorry for asking. I should have read the first post more carefully.

My request list for now would be:

  • Allow List view in the calendar (not only monthly) so times can be seen as well as dates (maybe also show start date in calendar view)
  • Add an option to set the default date format (like “LLLL” or “LT”, etc.). There is too much info currently:

I’m also excited about being able to clone events and create recurring events, which I see is on the roadmap :+1:

I had a 422 response :
errors [ “Les messages peuvent être téléchargés une fois par jour, veuillez ressayer demain.” ]
which is csv_export.rate_limit_error

so I kept looking, and i finally saw that plugin.rb has changed 6h ago…

:star_struck:
many thanks :smiley:

Hi, where i can see demo for this plugin?

Thank you!

Joffrey, again great work on this plugin.

Have you considered enabling events within PMs? This might create a viewing permissions nightmare in the calendar, but it might be easy.

My use-case is for setting up meetings for a small number of people, either individuals or a group that doesn’t have its own category.

Have you tried it in the OP of a PM?

2 Likes

Yes. Here in Meta:

And in my forum:

However, I’ve discovered that it will work if I make a Topic with an event and then convert the Topic to a PM. It appears in the calendar and the option to Create event appears.

It seems what we actually have is a bug - the Create event button does not appear in the OP of a PM unless it is converted from a Topic.

Yes I think this is just the issue, it doesn’t show the create event button in some cases :+1:

Will fix this, but yes it’s supposed to work in PMs, and also show only for allowed people in /upcoming-events

Thanks for all the work on the plugin so far!

Would you be open to a PR that adds a location field? This is useful for providing a link to a video call, for example.

Maybe :nerd_face:

I would want a mockup please first, of both the resulting UI and how you would fill it / update it.

My create/update is the same, though I would have the below as a display:
