I have made sure the links to the documentation are correct in this meta topic. We will be making sure that the links in the plugin are ending up in the right place soon. You can find the documentation here Docs - Coöperative
The correct order of adding things is Provider - Source - Connection. Because Connections is what you will be adding most frequently, they are shown on the most left hand side.
A source is not the same as a filter. You will see that a Connection has button with a “funnel” icon that can be used to filter events, based on for instance if a certain word occurs in the event name.
An example would be:
Provider: Google Calendar
Source: The specific Google Calendar of @rgj
Connection: Have user @rgj create topics in a specific category for events from (source:) my (provider:) Google Calendar that correspond to (filter) a certain event name.
iCalendar providers don’t require any authentication, so you can just add one by selecting “icalendar”, giving it a name and saving the provider. If you’re integrating multiple
Is there any more things to know ?
I still don’t understand why my iCal field is not read, and i hoped the answer was there missing.
I’ve tried to put the link to the .ics file in both Provider URL and Source Options/URI fields, but when I try to recover the events, I get : Finished importing from <calendar name>. Retrieved 0 events, created 0 events and updated 0 events.
Can the problem the problem be caused by the fact that Nextcloud .ics link does not actually finish by .ics but by /?export ? (e.g. nextcloud ics link)
Never mind, I think I just spotted it - events timezone default is what controls it, right? I had taken that to mean “when creating a new event, what timezone should we start with”. Could have saved myself a lot of screenshots
You need to turn on events for that specific category. It seems like the whole site setting isn’t working at the moment (will report and investigate this in coop.pavilion.tech)
Also, I’m afraid that you’ve only added a date in your example. The UI is a bit confusing re adding dates and events in Discourse as a whole. This particular plugin uses an Add Event button above the composer in the Original Post:
Checked on my end as well, as i´m just a mod like you @HamMan2118 i also found nothing.
Actually it would help to copy our complete forum to a test instance and move many Events to a completly ne TOP-Category “Calendar-Archive” to see if this is helping.
But first of all as a mod i don´t have knowledge and resources to do so and our admins don´t have capacities for this as well - and in our real world Forum i don´t want to “try” something for Testing.
It would be very interesting to know why it is so slow and if there is anything to speed it up.
