    Official - Paid Events Module That Rocks!

    This module is an enhanced version of the default vB5 Upcoming Events module with the following additional features:
    1. Has an "Add New Event" button that allows users to quickly create a new event to a designated forum channel.
    2. Allows you to specify a designated forum channel where new events will be posted to.
    3. Integrates with Set Editor Default Content Type mod to automatically set the default content type to Event. So it's more intuitive and requires one less click to post events.
    4. Allows you to add custom HTML content above and below the events.
    This mod is packaged as a module so you can easily add it to a page via drag and drop in Sitebuilder. This also doesn't require editing existing vB templates so there's nothing to worry about template merge conflicts during upgrades.

    NOTE:
    This requires another mod (Set Editor Default Content Type) for the complete functionality. This must be purchased separately.

    This is exactly what I am looking for actually! Just watching the video I can't think of any changes to make.

          Question:
          I have like 3 different user groups.

          Group 1 - not allowed to create event --- Do they also see the button?
          Group 2 and 3 - are allowed to create an event. But each on a different forum sub-channel. Will this work with this mod?

            1. They will see the button. I can fix it by keeping it but when in the Create New Topic page, it will show an unauthorized error message.

            2. You can only specify one channel per module, otherwise it wouldn't know which channel to post the event to.

              Thank you! I was afraid that it would be too complicated Don´t even know if they would use it... right now none of them ever used the calender or events So I thought that maybe this "call to action" could help. But don´t mind, its not really important for us.

              I have implemented the module permissions in the latest version 1.1 which I released 2 days ago.

              I also fixed the missing "View Calendar" and "Add New Event" buttons when there are no upcoming events. Thanks to user mna for reporting this issue.

              To those who've purchased this mod, please check you inbox.

                Just bought this module and the default editor mod, sadly i'm getting these errors below.

                Warning: Use of undefined constant view_all_text - assumed 'view_all_text' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /var/www/vhosts/xxxx/httpdocs/includes/vb5/template.php(369) : eval()'d code on line 4 Warning: Use of undefined constant add_new_event - assumed 'add_new_event' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /var/www/vhosts/xxxx/httpdocs/includes/vb5/template.php(369) : eval()'d code on line 17

                Hope you know whats wrong here.

                  Actually, these are just "warnings" and not "errors". Do these affect the behavior of the module? If not, then there's nothing to worry about. Even the existing vB templates have warnings too. That's why there's this setting in the root config file to turn off PHP notices in template code.

                  PHP Code:
                  $config['no_template_notices'] = true

                  And besides, these warnings seem to be not my own doing but the way vB transcodes template vB syntax into PHP code causes these warnings.

                  Even I have a bunch of this template warning message in my server error logs and I believe it's coming from an existing vB template and not from a mod template.

                  Code:
                  PHP Notice:  Use of undefined constant title - assumed 'title' in /xxxxxxxxxxxxx/public_html/includes/vb5/template.php(318) : eval()'d code on line 87

                  One of the errors only apears when i activate this module.
                  The second error appears when i try to activate the add new event button which is not showing.
                  So i seems to me like it has something to do with this module.
                  Hope with this info you have an idea whats wrong.

                  Where do you see the error messages? Can you post a screenshot?

                  When you enabled the "Add New Event" button, did you set the "Default Forum ID for adding new event to" option? The "Add New Event" button will not show if that other option is not set because it wouldn't know which forum to add the new event to.

                #10
                Yes i did enter a default Forum ID, like: 134382
                But sorry, it seems like the add new event button is showing now.
                The errors still remain on top of homepage only though

                  Is your forum in debug mode? Did you enable debug mode in the 2 config files?

                  Your PHP settings might be configured to display PHP warnings. Try turning it off. See instructions at https://blog.domainracer.com/hide-tu...ess-cpanel.jsp
