Quote by emagin: I'm happy to report that we are a couple of days away from releasing a calendar update that incorporates security-based categories for events, so that you can show one/many categories of events on a page.


Did this code ever get released? Does anyone know of any hacks/upgrades to improve the basic calendar shipped with 1.3.10? For example, it would be great if the events could be assigned to a topic/category and then the events could be filtered.

Is anything out there already? Thanks.

Location:The Netherlands, where else?
It would also be nice to be able to use military time (13:15) instead of the am/pm time (01:15PM), I guess.

Just uploaded the hack to the GL updates repository.
Once approved you can check out the README and see all the calendar files that have been modified.

Screenshot shows you the dropdown at top and bottom of page to choose the category.
You need to create a GROUP called cal_categoryname and this will allow you to generate categories as you see fit dynamically.

All the best.

So what ever happened to this calendar upgrade?? Does anyone else know of any other calender plugins (sorry don't want to try to hack it yet). I've been toying with the idea to use geeklog for the companies intranet, but could REALLY use a calendar system to replace the garbage that outlook does.

The hack works but it might not meet all your requirements.

I've tried all manner of web-based calendars, and I guarantee you, there is nothing out there that can easily replace Outlook.

My primary requirements are:
Intelligent multi-event scheduling
Sharing events, inviting others
Seamless sync with Phones, Palms and Pocket PC devices (good luck!)
Plugins that work with Skype, Vonage or other VOIP tools
Multiple users sharing - can do with Exchange, MDaemon groupware, many others
Drag 'n drop events onto calendar
iCalendar compatible (Outlook blows at this admittedly)

There is a great calendar module for Xoops that is the model of what I would like for Geeklog.
It can't do all the above by any means, but it can sure do web calendar well. It's the best I've seen sofar.

But first the Calendar should be broken out to be a plugin, makes no sense to keep it so tightly integrated to core code.
Is this happening in 2?

emagin, after you check out the thread andy has suggested above, do let me know how easy it is going to be to port piCal (i think the xoops version you were refering to) to GL.

thx,

ajay

edit: i am willing to provide assistance in this project, but my skills are rather rudimentary.

I found this calendar the other day. It is called Schoolbell, it is designed to run as a Zope3 plugin. There is also a standalone version which I now have running on our server. I was wondering if it can be used as a plugin for Geeklog.

Here is the url: http://www.schooltool.org/schoolbell/

Thanks

Steve
