Because I'm creating events for users but I cannot assign it to a specific user.
A way ? May be in future version ? I don't known if this mod is maintain or not.
There always a way, so yes there is a more complicated way (I'm not going to explain because I think not any leader should EVER be able to.

Next thing you'll want to know or suggest as a feature would be writing PM's or posts under other user's names.

It's the same as admin reading PM of all users, sure it's possible but phpbb won't make it easy.

They are just not explicit members of that group. Worse though, I cannot nest groups I think. So I need a few dozen people to have access to a few hundred private groups and those few dozen people are potentially changing every now and then. Messy!
First of all ..I'm NOT alightner! if this is what you meant.

Secondly..
please test what this would do exactly, who knows?

Oops.. my bad. I was trying to work and skim this at the same time and looked at the subject instead of poster name. Fixed now!


Also, I tried your suggestion. It didn't seem to make a difference. Poking around at the code, I think it is pretty specific that you have to be a member of the group or the one that created the event to see it. It looks like there is a common function that grabs your group membership and uses it to view events. Perhaps I can tweak it to make an additional check for a specific group membership and if so, return all of the groups or something similar.

@ Feneck91

My name is not google, please do your own research before posting silly questions that show how much you want to invest in learning or answering your own questions before asking someone else to waste their time for you.

Sorry ..not nice but true in my humble opinion, (you don't do the research, you hardly know coding basics... but you do want to realease it on your forum while anyone wrapped their brain arround it exept you???... no chance..not through me anyway :lol:

I'm Dutch and I DID read all 279 pages and even will do again if needed!!

Never mind ..I just wanted to make sure who this was pointed at :lol:

I think the keyword here is "private" in "pivate group", I'm amazed though why switching the last suggestion did not help or even did nothing.

another thought to make this adding of 12 staff-members to groups easier.. have you researched if phpbb makes adding groups to groups is possible? That would save alot of work :idea:

One thing I wish that was different with this mod is that each event posted on the calendar be searchable by the forums, and counts as a post.. reason being.. I would like to RSS the events to widgets on other websites.

Any ideas on how I could accomplish this?

We got a fix up and running to the issue we were having. In the process of testing it out still but it seems promising. Essentially there was no check for having the "Can create/edit events for groups that they do not belong to" configured, meaning that even though you have this set to yes, you still could not see events for groups that you did not belong to, but you could edit them. Not sure if that was intentional. Kind of doesn't make sense in our particular case at least. On our forums, this permission is only set for forum administrators and for those considered a global moderator.
In functions_calendar.php, first find every instance of:

Code: Select all

		$group_options = get_sql_group_options($user->data['user_id']);
There are a bunch of functions there using it needing the fix. Add a new line after each with:

Code: Select all

		$nonmember_allowed = $auth->acl_get('u_calendar_nonmember_groups');
Next replace every instance of:

Code: Select all

(event_access_level = 1 AND ('.$group_options.')
with:

Code: Select all

(event_access_level = 1 AND (('.$group_options.') OR ('.$nonmember_allowed.') ) )
$group_options is the check for being a member of the group, and the new $nonmember_allowed one is to see if they have the "Can create/edit events for groups that they do not belong to" permission set. It is checked when displaying groups while posting a new event, but was missed when populating the calendar.

The second part involved using the same permission setting and checking for authorization to view the events themselves. The events were now showing up properly on the calendar but clicking on them gave an access denied message essentially. This next part resolves that.
Fix for viewing events. Find the following in functions_calendar.php and change the last line to match the second code block.

Change:

Code: Select all

function is_user_authorized_to_view_event($user_id, $event_data)
{
	global $auth, $db;
	$user_auth_for_event = 0;

	// no matter what the author can always see their own events
	if( $user_id === $event_data['poster_id'] )
to:

Code: Select all

function is_user_authorized_to_view_event($user_id, $event_data)
{
	global $auth, $db;
	$user_auth_for_event = 0;

	// no matter what the author can always see their own events
   // "Can create/edit events for groups that they do not belong to" can see events
       	if( $user_id === $event_data['poster_id'] OR $auth->acl_get('u_calendar_nonmember_groups') )

So far this seems to work for us. Props to one of our users (forum name Gorgon though not on here that I know of) that helped sort this out.

That'd be me, and yes, I've been following this mod since krackq first started looking at adding it to our board. Great work on it.

The last line in the code above should have used ||, not OR by the way. I sent krackq the changes before actually testing/implementing them (sorta thinking out loud on the problem while chatting on IRC with him and looking at the code, though supposedly php was fine with OR as well.). So far nothing has blown up, so good sign. :P

Code: Select all

    function is_user_authorized_to_view_event($user_id, $event_data)
    {
       global $auth, $db;
       $user_auth_for_event = 0;

       // no matter what the author can always see their own events
       // "Can create/edit events for groups that they do not belong to" can see events
              if( $user_id === $event_data['poster_id'] || $auth->acl_get('u_calendar_nonmember_groups') )

SQL commands code working for MySQL 4.0

Post by fnys »

Hi
I'm Getting the same error every time when trying to execute the SQL commands in phpMyAdmin:
Image
I've always tried (several times now!) on a new installed, unmodified phpBB forum but still can't get it to work.

I've also read this thread (that the "Troubleshooting guide" refers to):
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5#p3824905
Still getting the same error! ...and this thread is for much older calendar versions too. :?

I think I know what the problem is and I KNOW that I got the answer in the MySQL error message but I still can't solve it cause of my bad SQL knowledge. :cry:
My MySQL client version is 4.0 and my guess is that the code is made for later MySQL versions. Could that be right?
I would be more than superhappy if someone could change the SQL commands so they work for MySQL 4.0.


phpBB forum version: 3.0.11
Calendar version: 0.1.1
phpMyAdmin - 2.11.10
MySQL client version: 4.0.27
Used PHP extensions: mysql


Thanks in advance!

I am using this great MOD.
And I have the following question:

I want users to give the possibillity to modify a groupevent of the group they belong to.
But I can only find the permission to modify a nonmember groupevent ...
Do I miss something? Or is it not possible in the current version?

With kind regards,

René
