Default Label for Event Calendar Messages (#1468)

A new message is created every time an event is added to an event calendar. The new message contains the event's name (title) and descriptive text.

You can now specify a default label for these messages. At this time, all new "event messages" will be given the same label.

This allows you to provide some visual difference between messages from the event calendar and regular discussion group messages (especially if you create a label named "Event Calendar Message", or something equally self-explanatory).

You could also choose to hide all "event messages", by using a label that causes message to visible only to "editors".

By default, the label is "none" (that is, no label is applied to the messages), just like the original behaviour. You can change the default label in the structure editor, in your site's admin area.

If you have any questions, you know what to do: ask them here!

Just to let everybody know, we've fixed a few bugs in the event calendar today, you should find that repeating events are much more reliable now.

Also, we have a couple of small new features almost finished. They should be ready tonight.

Can you still reproduce it? I was able to add and delete an event in your calendar with no error.

Okay, did that, works fine until I try to add an event:

"Can't evaluate the expression because the name "adr" hasn't been defined. "

Brian,

You can't add events because you haven't put the javascript into your template.

Either update your existing template, or create a new one for the calendar page.

See the docs on setting up your calendar (http://www.free-conversant.com/free-conversant/support/docs/how-to/firstEventCalendar), and scroll down to the section entitled "Checking the Template".

I'm getting Javascript run-time errors when I try to add an event at
http://www.carnell.com/brian/calendar.

Tried it on a couple machines to make sure I didn't have some funny
setting. Using IE5/Win

Actually, that's not true. Events are (intentionally) displayed for every
day on the calendar. It was a convenience issue, in my mind.

If people generally don't like it, we'll turn that off.

Good catch. It's fixed on the server, and I fixed it in your template.

Those who already created their calendar will have to fix it in their template.

Go to the properties screen of your calendar. For example:

yourSite/admin/conversations/yourSite/structure $path=yourSite%2Fcalendar

Scroll the window all the way down and find the section named "7. Filters Box".

The missing quote is in the Filters box template.

I did. The remaining errors are rather meaningless, I think.

Yes it is. BTW, there's a different style for the days in the current month, and the days in the month before or after, to make obvious they're not in the current month.

Also note that the events for these "out of range" days won't be displayed. The search includes only the events in the requested month, and these extra days are there only for cosmetic reasons.

Thanks! And thanks for your reports, Duncan.

I really liked the fact that you can set up different templates for different functions. Since I had made a mess of the placement of my calendars filter display I fixed this by duplicating a template and changing that rather them risk screwing up my normal template. Worked like a charm.

I always tend to run an HTML validator over any change such as this and the validator flagged up

<td align='center width='33%' class='eventCalendarViewLinksCell'>

since there is no closing single quote on 'center.

There are a number of other non-validating aspects of the calendar page. Feel free to visit smeed/calendar and run the validator that's linked at the bottome of the page.

I also noticed that I get the last few days of August cited in the September calendar on the lead up to September 1. Not quite sure if this is a feature or not ;-)

Great works guys,

Duncan

It may well have been a cache issue - I didn't do force reload but I
no longer get the original error so all is well. I suspect that the
original error was due to an incorrectly set up calendar page due to
early experimentation. Sorry for the false alarm.

Yes, I'll need to move that macro!

>Most of those problems have been solved now, but we're still working on the last one (don't delete the two default category groups from your calendar, or it won't work any more).

That's fixed, now.

Flip,

I tried to add an event to my calendar, but it's still displaying an error with the event in it (http://www.three-rivers-church.org/calendar):

Sorry! There was an error: Frontier Engine: Can't get the category "0000000" because the category group "0000001" wasn't found.

Oh, that's not a problem, there. The filters box isn't assumed to be displayed in pages outside of the calendar (where it would be meaningless, outside of its context).

Thanks for the report, though. I'll fix it to return an empty string.

Could it be reloading the error from its cache? I'm looking at your calendar at this very moment in MacIE5 and everything looks fine.

Yes, everything but the Display filters positioning. ;-)
