Guys, I’ve started working on a migration script from the Events plugin to the Official Discourse Calendar events plugin. Its starting to look good, but I need some feedback to get it to a stage where it is production ready.
Hi @angus. I’m struggling to get an effective side-by-side comparison between of functionality this and the now official Discourse events plugin.
I’ve use your impressive events pluggin on one site and am pleased with how that’s worked. Are they compatible if I migrate from one to the other or will I lose the events?
I’ve recently started another site and I’m wondering whether I’d be better using the official one. I’m on a hosted forum so would need to ask to swap out plugins. Is there a post of blog comparing the features somewhere? I’m worried by the implication this version will no longer be supported or developed.
We made the move ages ago. Unfortunately the Discourse team has had other priorities and have not been working on the Discourse Events plugin for a while. Many of us are impatiently awaiting some more development as we see the potential!!
@fzngagan Is currently working on, and getting close to completing a migration script to transfer events from our plugin to the Discourse Event plugin. You can follow the progress on that here
As @nathankershaw mentioned, our poicy for the plugin, as stated in the OP is that we encourage people to consider the other plugin as we won’t be actively developing this plugin. We will be maintaining it in its current state for the foreseeable future, however as we are supporting some specific use cases that are not supported by the other plugin. If that plugin adds support for those use cases we will deprecate this plugin entirely and migrate some folks to the other one, using the migration script that Faiz has been working on.
We use the Discourse Event plugin internally, not this one. Personally, I also think it’s a better plugin from a technical perspective.
I don’t believe we will be doing further work on this plugin but we do definitely have plans to do additional work on the Events piece. I have opened that other topic so that we can continue discussion.
I don’t know if this is a bug or if I am missing some kind of integration, but how is the Subscribe button supposed to work? When I click it I see two (partial) URLs but I am unable to interact with this in any way?
If you’re on the latest version of the plugin and Discourse tests-passed, when you click the links they’ll be copied to your clipboard. You’ll see a little green flag next to the modal (above it on mobile)
