Ideally he'd just add the functionality to optionally tie them to topics, not require it for any/all events created. That way, if you never, ever tie them to a topic, you're fine, but if you do, you're fine, and if you want a mix, you're also fine.rove wrote:Great mod, i certainly will use it. If you decide to turn it into a topic calendar however then i won't use it. I have absolutely no need for a topic calendar.
It could be done as simply as a button on a topic to create a calendar entry from the first post which would open the calendar entry panel and retain the topic's location to be included with the calendar entry. Set a field saying which KIND of calendar entry it is and store the topic lookup data in the body of the entry. When viewed, it takes that data and opens the thread instead of displaying the body content. Volia.
Not as "clean" as integrating it into the post at create time but a hell of a lot more flexible, fairly easy to do (I think) and everyone benefits.
