Other packages:
  • :arrow: "installed" pack: this pack is a full phpBB with the mod already applied to the files.
    If you have troubles during the mod installation, please refer to these files before asking questions like "I can find this line...", "easyMOD can not find that...". This pack can be also used to build quickly a test environment to get familiar with the mod.
Reported issues:
o when using r format, the order of time components is not correctly handled: report
o when g/h are present, the am/pm may be added abusivaly (same topic)


FAQ:
  • "Is there a demo board I can see this mod in action ?"
    There is no "official" demo board, but you can see the categories hierarchy edition in action, which is pretty close regarding the display to this one at the CH demo board,
  • "How can I add a new event ?"
    In "Topic Calendar", the word "topic" appears: this means events are actually handled by topics, so you have to post a new topic to add an event to the calendar,
  • "How can I allow a forum to accept events ?"
    The mod installed a new auth in ACP/Auths menus to allow or restrict the ability to post events,
  • "How can I add repeating events ?"
    This mod doesn't support repeating events in its basic version. It would so require an extra-mod to add them,
  • "Can I make my user birthdays to appear in the calendar ?"
    Yes, if you have a birthday mod. Some birthday date formats are supported: you will find the drivers in the contrib directory of the pack. The supported date formats are MMDDYYYY, YYYYMMDD and DD-MM-YYYY. If your birthday mod doesn't match one of these formats, you will have to write your own driver. To activate a birthday support driver, please read the author's notes in the full installation pack description.

I just installed topic calendar and on the small calendar at the top of the forum index it lists the dates in the format: "Thu Thu 18 Dec, 2003 12:00 am"

This makes the calendar so long that there's a left-right scroll.

Problem 1: Why is it displaying the day twice?

Problem 2: Why is it displaying the time?

I read elsewhere that the calendar uses the profile date format, but I changed the profile date format and it had no effect.


Also on the full calendar page it's showing the day only once as it should, but it still has the time causing the stretch once again

Thanks in advance for your help!

Could the "Dates For Humans" MOD be causing this?

First, don't crosspost between sites : I will not answer to each of your post everywhere : it is a lost of time for you and for me. Then, as already mentioned, the mod use your profile dateformat setting. I do not know nothing about the mod you are mentioning, but as long it doesn't screw this field (use_dateformat / $userdata['user_dateformat']), it isn't involved. Set your date format in your profile.

Excellent script .. Thank you!

Newbie here, so excuse my ignorance.
No cross-posting, so I edited this message and moved it to the following URL:

http://rpgnet.clanmckeen.com/demo/viewt ... =8292#8292

Didn't know where to post. Thank you!

I found a bug on this mod.

When you go to edit your topic, your topic name is deleted and you have to re-enter it, but, it does not delete your topic, you just have to name it again, which get's irritating.

Do you know how to correct this bug?

First, I'll post where I damn well please, Ptirhiik. This isn't your board and I didn't address you directly in my post. I've heard your response and it was useless to me. I posted here in hopes that someone else could help.
Then, as already mentioned, the mod use your profile dateformat setting. I do not know nothing about the mod you are mentioning, but as long it doesn't screw this field (use_dateformat / $userdata['user_dateformat']), it isn't involved. Set your date format in your profile.


As I've said three times now, I changed my date format in my profile and it doesn't change it in the calendar. That's the piece of information that you continually ignore and why I'm hoping someone else will come along with some insight.

Thanks anyway, and good night.

Now if anyone else can help me with this problem, I would much appreciate it.

> Aahz : I gave you the exact info. Now, if you don't feel in the mood of listening and want to crosspost everywhere, well, the more you'll post, the less you will get support, at least from me. But well, who am I to pretend to know how this mod works ? Oh yes, the author, wups :),


> Dark Hedehog : can you elaborate a little more please ? I can edit as many times I want my topics without loosing anything at all, so it sounds much more like beeing an error in the application of the mod (probably between functions_post.php and posting.php), but I want to be sure of the problem you encounter : can you explain exactly what you are doing to get the topic title (?) lost ?

I'm sure you know how the mod works. However, your info doesn't solve my problem. The problem is obviously not with your mod but with my board.

I didn't "crosspost everywhere". I asked for your help on your forum. When the help you provided didn't solve the problem I went to a different board (this one, at which you happen to be a user, not a mod or admin of any sort) with a whole community of experienced people and asked for their support. So put a check on the egocentric attitude and feel free to ignore my posts on this issue.

Still hoping someone (besides Ptirhiik) can help me solve the problem I have integrating this MOD into my board.

Well, if you identify the problem was not relative to this mod, feel free to not use this topic which is dedicated to the support of this mod, and no other ones, TIA.

(and BTW, yes I rule the World, as I'm the Master of the Universe :twisted: /me rofl )

Well, whatdya know. Turns out that my post in this thread led to an email pointing me towards the solution to the double day display (Thu Thu). Even more surprising, the change I needed to make was in the functions_calendar.php file that came along with this mod.

Hrm... Guess it was a good thing I posted here afterall 8)
