Events Plugin 📆

Thanks @angus That’s very helpful.

Another issue is that when you have a lot of people RSVP’ing, the css breaks.
This is what I have:

I think you intended to post it to 🗓 Discourse Event

yes indeed. sorry for the noise. please remove if possible. thanks!

@angus does the plugin work with tags and tags intersection?

I will read through while I await your response.

I’ve noticed that the development of the Event features in the Discourse Calendar plugin appears to have stopped. You’ll note that it is now referred to as ‘alpha’:

While it was looking very promising, and indeed we abandoned this plugin for it, it is missing a couple of key features which really limits its utility. They are:

  1. Interacting with a user’s email calendar via pushing out .ics files
  2. A richer way of displaying all events.
  3. General spit and polish

Would you consider reviving this plugin? Or even better, looking at doing some work on Event features in the Discourse Calendar plugin ?

I believe (perhaps naively) that we could raise funds to do this.

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)

You can see it working here

I see, thank you!

Maybe the mouse pointer needs to change on hover to indicate that this is a possibility?

I’m also having the same issue on a public category. The below is all I see — no subscribe button is visible. I tried from other accounts as well.

Hey @kday that’s a screenshot from this plugin (a different plugin)

Hi all, it seems to me as if this plugin is currently breaking image upload - (with apologies in case of any misdiagnosis) - admittedly I was using the angusmcleod/discourse-events github version rather than the paviliondev.discourse-events so it may simply be an out-of-date version?

Composer stalls on “Processing Upload” - support - Discourse Meta

I am / was using the /paviliondev/discourse-events version and it’s broken composer image uploads capability (or I should say the newest version of Discourse has broken itself against the events plugin.) Please advise.

I am now reverting back to 2.9.0.beta8 vs 2.9.0.beta9, tested on other environments, 2.9.0.beta8 and events plugin together allow image uploads through the Composer WYSIWYG again.

It looks like it’s down again. I need some instruction on how to setup an ical reader (possibly a Telegram bot).

@angus Is there any news on this?

Hello all!

Thanks for your patience. I’ve fixed the outstanding issue with this plugin. It’s working as normal on v0.1.1.

This is the official (Pavilion) word on what will happen with this plugin, in the order in which each will occur.

  1. From now (until 4, below) will again be providing support to this plugin. If you report issues here we will respond.

  2. This plugin’s functionality will be merged into the coming Discourse Events Integration Plugin, which is due for release in late October.

  3. All data from this plugin will be automatically migrated into the new DEIP plugin.

  4. Once the DEIP is launched, this plugin (i.e. the Events Plugin) will be archived.

Not sure if this is already being considered, but having multiple topics for a single event and listing them under a main event page would be a very nice feature.
