Thank you for the detailed reply! Actually yes, that would be great if it could be linked to multiple calendars, using their permissions. =)Hi Trekkan, the latest version does allow you to have events listed in different forums, but the calendar display will show all the events from the different forums.
I've just run a check for you by making one of my test event forums only viewable by the 'admin' usergroup, but events are still displayed in the calendar to 'guests', when you click on it you get a message that you must login to view it, when you login as a 'registered user' you get an error message saying you do not have permissions to view that page.
This isn't a problem for my site as all events can be viewed by anyone, but I can see it would be for you, maybe if Jaxel can introduce an option for multiple calendars, one linked to each event forum, as per my post 285, these calendars could adopt the permissions of the forums they are connected to, would that help you?
Thanks for that, would it bhe possible to make it a bit more 'elegant' though? Something say along the lines of a tick box to check if it's just a normal thread, then it will just remove the event fields and leave it as a standard thread to post??You can make normal threads... they just need to be made in a different forum and them moved over by a moderator.
Or keep the New Event button only in the calendar?Agree with ibaker on ALL points ... such a great add-on and if it could be figured out to post normal threads then we'd use it.
One other idea I had would be to possibly have a create event button, say under the Post New Thread button and in the same style, that brings up an overlay with the event fields etc??? This way could have it so only users with access to create events would see the button, to everyone else it would operate like a 'normal' forum re posting threads.
The calendar shows based on the TIMEZONE set on your account. If you are the admin on your forum, make sure you have your timezone set correctly. When XenForo installs and you create that initial admin account, it actually places it into the UTC/GMT timezone, and doesn't give you the option to select it.My Calendar is showing a Day Ahead? How can I fix that?
