    @wordpressfan

    I need the best free event plugin (BP or WP) that can do the following:

    - Allow people to post new events

    - Presents a calendar of events

    - Is more than a simple text mish-mash but looks good, too.

    Thanks.

    check the result here: http://lesdauphines.com/

    first block is the calendar widget of the same tool

    second block is the events to come

    this is not a seperate engine, just custom content for each posts… easy to configure, and any poster can use it… no need to learn a new machine.

    Thanks. I’m looking for a single page people can go to where they can see a calendar of upcoming events.

    with the functions included in the product, you can create a complete page with all these details… i’m building one right now for the site you visited… i’ll show you later today

    @wordpressfan Are you looking for an events plugin thad adds not only events and a calendar but lets people rsvp and “attend” events? If so, You can use Erwin’s http://www.erwingerrits.com/?page_id=799 or head on over to the wpmu.org crew and throw down money for theirs (not an endorsement since the make you pay without even a test drive, not my game)

    Temporarly I am using the one nexia recommended. It is good, simple and clean.

    I used Erwin’s Plugin at first, but it is pretty disappointing until now (and I followed it from the beginning). I hope there will come a “ultimate” event-tool for BP with all the features Erwin was thinking about at first :-)! I am still saying this although there was a life-sign on Erwins Page in the last days…

    He squashed a number of bugs on Sunday too… and updated it for 1.1.3. In time I have faith that bp-events will be a great solution.

    I’m also considering using an interim solution until a buddypress-specific solution becomes available. The WPMU option is not an option since I would not be able to afford on-going support and updates @ $79/mo.

    I’ve used http://wpcal.firetree.net/ and what I like about it is that the event is associated with a post for the additional details. The events added using this plugin will be automatically integrated in user’s activity stream because events are created via published Posts.

    Setting up events would work easily if you allow access to main site’s dashboard so all logged-in users can add new post with the event information. That solves everything. Thing is, I don’t want users going anywhere near the backend of the main site where BP is installed :-)

    What would be ideal is an add-on to the plugin with frontend interface for logged-in users who do not have blogs. They could add the event information in the BP area. Those who have blogs could add events from their own dashboard Write/Edit panel.

    One just needs a way to aggregate events posted in blogs to seamlessly integrate with events posted from BP front-end interface. That way, all events whether posted in BP area or user blogs will appear in order for Upcoming Events list and/or big calendar.

    i’m using bp-events 1.1 on 1.1.3 and wpmu 2.8.6

    I don’t know if it’s the best plugin, but it work correctly and is well coded…

    You can try it on this fr_FR demo site:

    http://buddypress-fr.net/bpdemo/events

    you can also find the plugin package with some corrected files and a updated pot file here:

    http://buddypress-fr.net/bpdemo/groups/utilisation-configuration-optimisation-de-buddypress/documents/

    Since yesterday there is also an update for bp-events to 1.1.3 on the plugin trunk:

    http://svn.wp-plugins.org/bp-events/
