Events Plugin 📆

(Tobias Eigen) #325

Yep! Thank you. That is just what I had in mind.


I just installed this nice plugin in my discourse installation (v2.0.0), but when I enable “All topics in this category must have an event.” for a category, nobody is able to answer to topics in that category anymore. The composer shows up and the “Reply” button is enabled, but clicking reply doesn’t do anything, not even showing an error in the console.
Is this expected?

Indeed, that was a bug. Thanks for reporting it. Now fixed:

This is an issue with different browsers having difference takes on rounding calc(100% / 7). This should fix it:


Thank you very much, issue is solved!

I have enabled rsvp for some events in my site, and it’s super interesting and raises all kinds of exciting possibilities. I can see this getting big functionality-wise so use your judgment to decide how far you want to go! :wink:

For our use case, it would also be helpful for moderators to be able to rsvp on behalf of members, and to manage their rsvp responses.

Here are two examples. The first is a webinar we’re hosting next week - we have a few hundred interested registrants already, and it would be nice to be able to have that reflected at the top via RSVP. Can it handle that many rsvp’s?

The second is an event we are not hosting but alot of our members are going to be attending. We know already who some of them are and it would be nice to be able to bring them together via RSVP.

I have both discourse events and discourse chronos plugins, but I still could not create recurring event.

There are not direct links between discourse-events and discourse-local-dates (the new name of chronos) at the moment AFAIK.

I’m seeing an odd error just today - I created a new event (with RSVP, if that matters) and in Sidekiq I’m seeing a handful of failures (just 4, which is much lower than the number of people notified for sure):

Jobs::HandledExceptionWrapper: Wrapped ActionView::Template::Error: Invalid Timezone: 

I assume this is a property of the user rather than the event, since not all notifications failed, but I’m not sure how to check the timezone on these users. Any ideas?

(Joe Buhlig) #334

I’m seeing the same thing as @gwmngilfen, but on a larger scale. I’ve got 27 errors at the moment. All the same error:

Jobs::HandledExceptionWrapper: Wrapped ActionView::Template::Error: Invalid Timezone:

In my case, I’m using the plugin on two categories. And in both, it’s for showing multi-day events with start and end dates. So there are no times associated with any of them.
