Events Plugin 📆

This plugin allows you to add and manage events with Discourse.

  • Add an event to a topic.

  • Features Agenda view, Calendar view, RSVP, timezone support and much more.

  • Events can be enabled sitewide (i.e. for all the categories) or for specific categories.

Features

Agenda and Calendar
  • The plugin allows two ways of listing the events, Agenda view and Calendar view.
  • These views can be enabled for all the categories using site settings, or for specific categories using the category settings.
  • The agenda view displays the events in chronological order from earliest to latest occuring event.
  • The calendar view displays a calendar and marks the events on it.
  • You can optionally remove the past events from agenda and calendar by changing the site settings events remove past from agenda and events remove past from calendar.
RSVP
  • The user can indicate they are Going to the event.
  • The event post has a list of people who have marked themselves as Going to attend the event.
  • The site setting for this feature is events rsvp.
Locations Plugin Integration
  • The plugin offers integration with Locations plugin.
  • The user can set a location for the event, which will be marked on the map.
  • There is a setting to remove the past events from the map called events remove past from map.
Time and Timezone Formatting
  • Datetimes are stored as Unix timestamps (i.e seconds since epoch). This makes it easy to order the topics using the existing topic list filter structure.
  • Time conversion and formatting on the client is handled by moment.js; see e.g. the eventLabel helper. Should probably add settings that allow the time format to be changed.
  • Time selection dropdown is handled by the jquery-timepicker plugin. Probably could be replaced by a native solution in the future. And the increment period of the times in the dropdown should be a setting.
iCal Feed
  • When on the calendar view, there’s a subscribe button to subscribe to the events calendar, as a webcal feed or an RSS feed.

  • Recently, we added a feature to support subscribing the feed of private forums using the user’s api key.(thanks to haveyaseen)

  • It is possible to get a .ics/ICalendar file of the topics with the date, time, description and url of the topic. time_zone is required and you can choose the time zone for your location.

    • Get the ics feed of a category
      /c/CATEGORY/calendar.ics?time_zone=...
      Pavilion
    • Get the ics feed of the whole forum
      /calendar.ics?time_zone=...

Events Integration

Events Integration lets you integrate calendars, event discovery, event ticketing, event management and events from social network events Discourse. It currently supports the following service providers

Provider Type Notes
iCalendar Calendar Client e.g. Google Calendar or Outlook Calendar
Eventbrite Event Discovery
Meetup Event Groups Requires Meetup Pro
Humanitix Event Ticketing
Eventzilla Event Management

Any other calendaring, event discovery, event ticketing, event management or social network can be integrated. Please reach out to product@pavilion.tech for details.

How does it work?

The integration works with the event service providers you’re already using. When you create events in a provider like Google Calendar, Eventbrite or Meetup, the plugin lets you automatically integrate those events into your Discourse community. That means you can schedule in your calendar, run ticketing in Eventbrite, publicise on Meetup.com and discuss on your Discourse.

Here’s a little intro to the functionality I’ve made for the beta

Research and Development

The DEIP is the product of an EU-funded research project conducted by Pavilion, and is part of a wider project to develop a modern event data portability standard. Read more about the project here

Hi, I’m wondering the time zone settings. Can I specify a time zone and let different users know the time for their own.

4 Likes

The time is always displayed in whatever timezone is set in the user’s browser.

Times are stored as unix timestamps (i.e. UTC) and then converted into the user’s timezone in the client via moment.js.

You can see this in action by viewing any events topic, e.g. this topic, in two different timezones.

You can open a chrome window in a different timezone by creating the dir ~/chrome-profile then running

TZ='US/Pacific' open -na "Google Chrome" --args "--user-data-dir=$HOME/chrome-profile"

A post was merged into an existing topic: Locations Plugin

Looking pretty good. Is there a way to change the display from 24h to am/pm?

Also, I think users will expect to find some sort of popup calendar when they click on the calendar icon. Could you make the link in the date-time-container trigger a popup calendar (similar to a date picker) instead of a link to the topic page?

Not currently, but I will add this as a setting this weekend.

I’m not sure which calendar icon you’re referring to here. Do you mean this label in the topic list?

2 Likes

Yes, that’s the div I was talking about (thanks for the pic). I’m used to having a calendar pop up whenever I click on a link with that icon… Maybe its just me.

@11145 What was the last thing you did before this error occurred? Did you remove an event from a topic?

Also, the stack trace is missing the first line, e.g.

NoMethodError - undefined method `to_datetime' for nil:NilClass

Could you take another look at the log and see if there is anything else relevant?

hm, I’m not sure it makes sense to stick a calendar in in that fashion. Perhaps a calendar as an entirely separate list, like the Locations Plugin replaces the topic list with a map. I have no plans to do that any time soon though.

But having different parts of the same row take the user to different UIs would not be good UX. It would also be unexpected given the way topic list rows work in all other topic lists.

The association of that icon with linking to a calendar is a separate issue though. I think there should be an icon there, as without one it may not be immediately obvious what the numbers refer to. Can you think of a better icon to use there?

Perhaps the icon could be omitted if you had something like:
Sep 12th (2-4:30pm)

Else maybe:
fa-calendar-check-o

Thanks, but that looks like an error for the locations plugin, not this plugin. Could you re-post in that topic? I’ll take a look at that in a bit.

Could you take a look at my follow up for your previous post? Cheers

I think I’ve fixed it, but I want to be sure.

I will add formatting for event labels to allow for this kind of format, however as the current format will still be an option (and other formats), I think it makes sense to have an icon.

28 PM

hm, I think the tick is a little confusing as it doesn’t connote anything in this context.

fa-calendar-o is possible

51 PM

This is what it looks like in context.


19 PM

vs fa-calendar:


43 PM

You know what, I’ll just make the icon an optional setting when I add different datetime formats. :slight_smile:

I’ll be doing this over the weekend.

I just pushed three new settings:

  • events_event_label_icon: Allows you to set the class of the event label icon
  • events_event_label_format: Allows you to set the moment.js format of the datetime in the event label.
  • events_event_label_short_format: Allows you to set the moment.js format of the datetime in the short event label in the topic list

Example:
29 PM

Hi @angus
We just had this installed (running 1.8.7 - is this release supported as we always run on stable?)

Once I add a new topic and assign date/time to it - the topic does not render:

you will need to be on tests-passed, {{d-icon}} helper has been introduced recently.

Ah ok - am not going to be able to do that sadly as running on Communiteq (formerly DiscourseHosting).

Thanks anyway!

On the Professional plan and up, we can put customers on tests-passed upon request.
The plugin is working now.
