This is an updated version of the Events Calendar. Changes have been made over the previous release that make this version incompatible with the earlier version.

First of all, event dates are now stored in the database as date stamps rather than separate values for day, month and year (I don't know why I did that, I had a reason at the time, but I can't remember what it was). Events now include a start date and an end date, as well as an interim date to which you can attach a message that can be configured to appear on your home page to inform visitors to your site that an event is starting, ending or about to end. Full installation instructions included.

There have been no changes to the calendar script or module for the column at this stage. I still think Frame's suggestion of colour coding the event dates in the calendar is a good idea, but I have decided to treat that as a separate project.

Get it from http://www.opencart.com/contribution/do ... ion_id/142.

It seems I included the wrong template file for the admin in the last release of this package. This release addresses that issue as well as providing a small measure of additional functionality, in that you can now configure the image display, by setting whether to use a thumbnail or the fullsize image with the description on the catalog side of things.

Updated package available from http://www.opencart.com/contribution/do ... ion_id/145.

This is a complete rebuild over previous versions. The javascript calendar has been replaced with a PHP calendar, allowing for the extraction of event dates that are included in the calendar display as highlighted links to pages listing the events for that day.

Can be incorporated into Dave Gilbert's SEO contribution for automatic generation of URL aliases (instructions included).

Ok this looks like just what i need, but if i use the included locator.php file in the library folder with the latest version, I can't save anything in admin i just get an error saying it couldn't validate.

after checking the original and the included files I found that the following code was missing at the end

Code: Select all

	function createValidate() {
		require_once(DIR_LIBRARY . 'validate/validate.php');
		
		return new Validate($this);
	}
once its re-inserted I can save everything again!!

Yes, we added a new validation class (we were going to save it for 0.8, but we jumped the gun) so any scripts that change locator.php will need to update

Since this version of the calendar was built on 0.7.9RC4, I'd suggest (recommend) using the original "locator.php" file from your copy of 0.7.9RC5 and follow the advanced instructions instead.

Besides the change made to the locator mentioned by Q, another change has been made is to the "custom" configuration for the fckEditor in the admin. To fix this, insert the following line to "admin/template/default/content/calendar.tpl":-

Code: Select all

oFCKeditor.Config['CustomConfigurationsPath'] = oFCKeditor.BasePath + 'myconfig.js';
somewhere before

Code: Select all

oFCKeditor.ToolbarSet = 'Custom' ;
(near the end of the file)
