Re: [Beta] phpBB Calendar 0.1.1 (alightner)

Post by Lumpy Burgertushie »

have you checked the subsilver2 html files of Dicky's against those for prosilver that are part of the MOD?

they are mostly identical.

I really don't know why you think you can't use prosilver files in subsilver or that if you do, it is wrong somehow.

it is just html, it either works or it doesn't. in this case it works.

as for the link to dicky's site. the day I tried it , it did not every load the page after several minutes and several different tries during the day. the fact that it worked before and that it works now, has no bearing on the fact that it did not work when I tried it. so no, I was not wrong about that.

as for the css. adding the css called for in the prosilver does not make a very large css file at all, it is not that much more to add.

however, apparently it is not needed at all for the subsilver files to work as he does not have any css edits in his subsilver files at all.

so, that makes it even easier to do what I said above.

all you would have to do is edit the imagest cfg files, make the two or three edits to the existing subsilver html files and upload the relevant images and you are done.

this is not just an opinion here, I did it and it works.

with that, I am out as I have taken this topic off course and I shouldn't have.

You CAN of course, and it's not wrong if you think only html&css validity, but it's not *subsilver2* style. (But then again, using prosilver templates with subsilver2 + not adding any css = very strange-looking solution, if you ask me, as they have very different class names, so most of the calendar pages don't have the colours and shapes they are meant to have. I don't think that anyone asked me anything, though.)

I just installed the calendar on a test board, works fine and looks good to me. There's some things that must be added, before it will fit my special needs, but it will be a really good exercise to me to try adding them myself, so I don't bother anyone by extra feature requests...

One thing that I've been wondering: what does "topic calendar" mean in this case? I know that this mod is not that kind of calendar, but what is a topic calendar exactly? Is it a calendar, where events are topics (but all topics are not events), or is it a calendar where every topic is an event? So... when people want a topic calendar functionality, what they actually want, that is. I might try to do something for that, as I need a sort-of topic functionality myself, but it would be easier to fit people's needs, if I know what those needs are. I guess it is a calendar where events are topics (or at least some events are topics...) as it looks to be the functionality most of the people have been asking, but I can't be perfectly sure about that, as my English is by no means perfect and I may be understanding wrong even though I think it is right.

Oh, and the fix provided here for the "cron" alt text displaying... I don't believe it's valid xhtml. You should never ever remove alt from img-tag, as alt is required for img, if my memory serves me right. Use alt="" (empty alt) instead. I mean that instead of

Code: Select all

$template->assign_var('RUN_CRON_TASK', '<img src="' . append_sid($phpbb_root_path . 'cron.' . $phpEx, 'cron_type=' . $cron_type) . '" width="1" height="1"  />');
the code should be

Code: Select all

$template->assign_var('RUN_CRON_TASK', '<img src="' . append_sid($phpbb_root_path . 'cron.' . $phpEx, 'cron_type=' . $cron_type) . '" width="1" height="1" alt="" />');
if, again, my memory serves me right.
Though I think that when Firefox shows the alt text, IE shows the "image not found" red X... and alt tag has nothing to do with it.

I for one am glad at least someone catches my drift :D (I doubt if Lumpy even viewed my callendar to see the difference, sadly I could not view his either :( )
Black pearl edits (which is what I edited to) are just a step deeper/harder than subsilver edits.

Correct ;)

About a topics callendar? I would not know what to expect of it tbh.
I have a mini cal in the portal that should refer to unanwered topics since the clicked date (if it would work correct because somewhere down the line I must have broken it and I don't think I have the time to find whats wrong anymore :( )

Hi all, I just installed this mod (first mod installation ever, and I'm no expert with phpbb... everything was ok!) and I have a couple of questions. I have a forum for my archery club and I'm using the calendar to manage athletes subscriptions to other clubs events: I create by hand all the events and athletes will sign up for the events that they want.

1. is it possible to have a topic automatically created for each event? So people can discuss about a specific event.
2. is it possible to batch create all the events? Since I need to create 60 to 80 events each time (once a year but this must be done quickly) this would be a great feature to me. I can create a CSV file with all the details, it's no problem.

Thank you
Francesco

Whenever a guest, non-logged in user views our calendar events the time it shows for them is off by 8 hours.
If the user logs in the time displays correctly. What setting do I need to change to fix this?

Regular forum posts in phpBB3 display correctly for guests, it only seems to effect the calendar events which is very confusing for users.

Thanks,
Coupons!

I'm pretty sure that's because you have a different Guest timezone. Go to board settings and change the Guest timezone if you wish.

The guest time shows correctly on the forums. The guest timezone in board settings is set to UTC - 4 Atlantic Timezone which is correct. Only on the calendar page when I view an event, the start/end time is 4 hrs less than what it should be. If event start time is entered as 9:00am for a guest it shows as 5:00am.

Is there some timezone configuration in the Calendar mod that I need to do because the guest timezone in the board setting is correct.

Thanks!

"Is the event creator on a different timezone maybe?" Do you mean the person posting the calendar entry?

The main phpbb3 forum board is located here. http://www.ccpoolplayers.com/messageboard
The time displays correctly here.

The calendar mod is located here, a sample event http://ccpoolplayers.com/messageboard/c ... &calEid=19
The event time is 4 hrs off here for guests viewing the calendar, once a user logs in, the time is correct.

Thanks!

Hi Alightner,
I'm using your mod. First of all, congratulations for the amazing mod!

I'd like to use it on another style, instead of prosilver or subsilver.
I'm using the art-air style.

Everything works perfectly, but i can't see the icons. Can you tell me the steps to solve this problem?

Thanks
Marco

Which icons exactly? (example link please?)

All styles are based on one or the other (either pro... or sub...) so you need the edits that match the style your style is based upon.

Have you checked if the icons you mean are uploaded to the correct directory? or even uploaded at all?

I ran the art-air style for a while and you have to do some different edits to get the icons to show up. I will see if I can find them but I havent used that style in a while so no promises. Something to do with the way the style handles the CSS as its a lot different then the standard prosilver.
