Events sign-up on Calendar
« on: November 19, 2007, 12:33:28 AM »
I am looking for a mod that allows members (based on member group) to 'sign up' for an event. On clicking the event, it would add their name to a list with everyone else who has signed up.

This is very useful for planning teams for raids and such, and takes the pain out of organization.

Does anyone know where I could get one? I had it on vBulletin, and was one of the (few) features I just loved. I would post the code, but I couldn't find it within the 2,500 lines of php lol.

If there isn't one, would anyone know hard it would be to make one?

Have you tried the packages at SMF? I know there are a few calendar mods there.
The calendar is part of SMF and we can't offer support, or change it.. You'll get better results at SMF.

Thanks. I have checked those out...none of them work for me.

Hehe...at least you guys respond to your members when they have a question :P.

Sorry for asking this, but maybe you would know ZTN...Is there any way to use a plugin from vBulletin to SMF? I will refrain from asking any other SMF questions now.

Thanks for the response!

No.. I can assure you that vB plugins/Packages will not work with SMF or TinyPortal.
The packages are written to specifically use functions within the SMF shell, or additional functions.

Unless the script is stand alone and does not require integration into the software, then it may work.
People do manage to 'port' plugins and scripts designed for 'other' software.

If the script/plugin is open source 'free', you are welcome to post it.
If you have to purchase it, then I don't suggest posting the source code here.

There is an event attendee mod at smf for the calender:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=26
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=138

however neither work for smf 1.4 :(

I agree this would be a great feature

Would be a great mod :(  Something you could install on a few boards would be great

Or even something that would work for certain articles in TP

you've tried this then (Jack's Phat Calendar)? I wondered about it. Have almost tried it several times! LOL

I'm still very new to smf and tp. I don't know enough about coding to update or even come up with a mod I imagine. I'm willing but my knowledge is lacking. sigh.
 ::)

So... anyway. It doesn't seem like there's much in the way of mods when it comes to events (planning, org, etc.) or calendars. ugh

:)

Right now I post the events in a thread and as people post saying they are coming I update the list on the first post..its a pain

For awhile we had smf bridge with joomla and that has an event extension that you could "register" for events.  However I hated the bridge and how things ran so we switched to TP

I use the calendar a lot..
http://labradio.co.uk/index.php?action=calendar


So any enhancements would be of interest to me too, I like this calendar:
http://www.liveandunsigned.uk.com/option,com_calendar/Itemid,16/

Which for me would be awesome, we would still need to link events to topics.

Zetan -- is that the basic calendar function you're running on your site? Very cool site, btw! Nicely done!
 :up:

Yes, dry3210. That's the problem I'm foreseeing. This specific site is a high school alumni/reunion site (http://jmhs-classmates.net). For the next reunion that's what I figure the problem will be & I sure don't want to have to do it like you're saying. UGH. TEDIOUS!

Plus, the folks who are the reunion coordinators are NOT really computer literate so anything I can do to help them is a good thing!

For this same site, I've got a joomla site set up (http://jmhs-classmates.org) but when I installed the bridge (by joomlashack), it "broke" the site. Needless to say, I got rid of the bridge when I uploaded my last backup. Thank goodness I'd backed up right before trying to get the bridge in place!
 :)

Seems like the bridge causes a lot of probs. I'm liking the SMF-TP solution much better thus far for the forum. Just need more mods re event planning or group management sort of things. And/OR maybe I just don't really understand the membergroups enough yet so.. Guess it'll all come with time! LOL  And maybe it'll handle more event-planning type things than I realize yet! Like I said... I'm so new to this software that I can't make much of a valid assessment I suppose! LOL

Even on the other site I've got TP installed, (http://myfibrofriends.org), I can see a use for the calendar & planning. The people there are ... brain-challenged, lots of memory issues. So it ends up with a lot of questions are, where's __so & so__? Course if you search the posts you can find out & inevitably someone remembers. It's a bit of a pain.
 ::)

But it'd be handy wouldn't it to just be able to refer to a calendar or some sort of package/mod that would help you with planning. I'm thinking calendar only because of the way I use my pda to keep track of things! Wouldn't HAVE to be a calendar I suppose though. Anyway...

Just thinking out loud I guess.

Guess I'm trying to figure out how to integrate these needs into what's existing since there doesn't seem to be anything really specific to these sort of needs. I guess linking posts to the calendar would do the trick for just keeping track of things like who's gone where, etc. wouldn't it!?!
 ;D

Anyway, I'm just thinking it wouldn't really work so well for things like event-planning because of probs like dry3210 mentions.
