Events Plugin 📆

@angus, I have noticed something with the agenda, i created a new event, and this one goes at the bottom of the list. I guess it doesn’t sort the new created events.
You can see here the 19th of september event -> Sortir - Activités - Français à Londres

Not sure if anyone else has run into this, but we have our events setup on a moderated category. When they come in for review, it doesn’t show the date/times and location on that view. But then, even if the topic is approved, it seems to somehow strip out the time/date and location fields. They don’t make it to the actual post after moderation. We tried it twice and ran into it both times.

We have certain events that repeat throughout the year. Is there a way to add multiple date to the original event topic? Right now, we end up having to re-enter the same event multiple times with the different dates. Is there a way to choose multiple dates, and have those dates show up on the event? Alternatively, maybe immediately create all the events, when you enter multiple dates?

I’m going to be spending some time on this plugin tomorrow and will address any bugs then.

@sfoster There’s no recurring events feature yet, but it’s on the roadmap.


A few updates here.

New maintainer :tada:

@fzngagan Is a new co-maintainer of this plugin and will be taking on the day-to-day of dealing with bug reports and feature requests. He’ll be giving it the attention it deserves, particularly making it more robust, e.g. with more tests coverage, and building new features.

Email notifications

To resolve this for the immediate-term I’ve had to remove all event details from email notifications. Email templating has undergone a considerable overhaul meaning that re-introducing email details into emails is a now seperate feature.

The task for re-introducing email content into notifications is here if you want to follow allong:

MIME type issue

@csmu This was fixed a while ago. See:

Review issue

@DavidO This is lined up to be worked on here:

Recurring events

@sfoster The task for this is here if you’d like to follow along:


How do you pass a user api key to this ?


Hey @csmu, does this one help?


Adding &api_key={valid-api-key}&api_user={valid-api-user} to the webcal url worked.


Hi, @DavidO
I’ve fixed this issue. You’ll need to update the plugin and your discourse to the master or tests-passed branch of discourse to use this fix.

Let us know if it works fine for you.


I’ve just updated to that latest version of discourse


with database schema v20190812141433.

and locations and events are no longer showing in the user interface.

Anyone else here having the same issues?


@csmu I’ve been running the same version on my dev instance without these issues.
What are the recent changes you’ve done other than updating the instance?

@angus, what might be going on here?

Hey @csmu, could you fill out a bug report here?

In particular we need:

  1. Links to your instance / topics where this is happening
  2. Any server or client-side logs you can provide

Which the wizard will ask for.

@fzngagan and I will follow up on that report.


I can confirm I run into the same issue. I am not able to create new Events. I’m on version v2.4.0.beta2 +328 and the latest Events Plugin Version.

Old Events are visible and can be edited. The Agenda is also missing in the category overviews.

If I can provide you some data just ask me for what I have to look :eyes:


Can you create a bug report here: Bug Report. I and @angus will follow up there. We’ll keep you updated on the issue.

I’m trying to reproduce the issue on a production site I’m running.


I’ve confirmed the issue. I’ll start looking into it tomorrow.

I’ve already created an issue here: Add Date/Time button missing on latest discourse - Tasks - Pavilion

All the updates about the debugging and resolution of the issue will be posted there.


The site is by invitation only. Please send preferred email addresses for the invitations via private message.

Any tips on what to look for … how to find the client side logs … what to look for in the server side logs … do I have to enter the container to get the logs?

This commit resolves all of the above issues.

Update the plugin to the latest version to resolve the issues.
Thanks @csmu for the initial report.


Events are now working for us on our staging and production servers … thanks :+1:


Thats really good to know.

Cheers, Am I slow? :slight_smile: I’m not able to figure out how to make the Agenda and Calendar views appear.

Plugin is installed all right. A bunch of checkmarks have been checked:

Category settings have been set:

But still, no event list. And no Add Date and Time button.

Am I missing something?
