bp-events for bp 1.1 needs testing!

    I have, with the plugins authors permission, ported and refactored the bp-events plugin. A lot of code has been cut, tons of stuff changed, but the functionality remains the same. Now based on the new bp group architecture.

    Features that were not yet implemented or half working have been left out for now. The plugin has the basic events functionality with the added bonus of working event forums. It now also includes date validation so you can not set events in the past or start dates that are later than end dates. It also has more template tags to list your events in group pages.

    Now this plugin needs some testing for those that are using (testing) bp trunk. The installation of the plugin has changed as it is now located in the plugins folder along side buddypress. Please view the readme for installation instructions if needed.

    NOTE: The author has not yet reviewed / approved these changes, but I am confident they are good. Therefore it would actually help the author if you would participate in testing and posting your results.

    If you have any questions…shoot!

    Send me a message with your email, so I can send you a zippie!

    paths are set dynamically to the plugin folder and theme folder, etc, but the plugin folder names should remain the same. Try and rename all the folders of buddypress to random names, I don’t think so :)

    I doubt that piece of stray code comes out of bp-events, I can not make anything out of it.

    It did, cause that was where I found it ;) but I just svn updated and it wasn’t there, so there must have been a problem when I uploaded via ftp last time. The last line that should be there ends in that code, so it must have duped it.

    Just come across another problem. I created an event, and assigned a group to be its host. The forum topics from that group are showing up. Not sure if that is a bug or a feature, but in my case, I wouldn’t want all the forum topics from my team’s executive committee showing up on an event about welcoming new members!

    When inviting users, instead of their avatar and name showing up like with the group invitation process, it shows up -1, and then does the are you sure dialog when trying to invite.

    Also, when I just went to create a new event, all of the fields were pre-populated with the title of the previous event I’d created.

    I’m testing this plugin on WPMU 2.8.4 + BP trunk r1893 and I’ve noticed that the users actions on events (like for example creation of new event) make no trace in user activity.

    I’m not sure that it’s not a problem of my particular instalation. But in case it’s true lack of feature are you planning to add this functionality in future?

    Sorry. I’m confused. I can still download the plugin from erwingerrits.com but I take it that you folks have taken the plugin and updated it for BP1.1. Is that correct? If so, that would mean that the version available at erwingerrits.com is out of date. Is he no longer developing it? Also, bp-events was not included with BP1.1. Where could I go to grab it? Here?:

    http://svn.ywamnetworks.com/bp-events/trunk/

    Can anyone recommend a Mac SVN client?

    Thank you.

    Any tips on getting bp-events 1.1 working with BuddyPress 1.1? Or is it simply not finished?

    I installed it fine but it’s somewhat broken. For instance, nothing shows up on the event detail pages. The content area is just blank. Anyway, if it’s still in development… that’s fine. I’m just trying to figure out the status… is it’s just not done or it I didn’t install it properly.

    Hi David, I have been very busy with a deadline at the office. Now with 1.1 out I am re prioritizing working on the BASE code for bp-events 1.1. Some stuff will need to be updated to reflect the gazillion bug fixes in BP 1.1. Eventhough it seems to work fine on my install, I will create another local install to see where it is at with the official BP 1.1.

    My task has been really to port over the basic events functionality as a service to the community. Erwin will continue on this port and extend the features as he wishes. The biggest part that is not included with the current port is the directory view, since that was still in flux when I started porting so I left it till matured.

    Give me some time as I also have another major plugin (group blog) that needs reworking of the code. However as I said, my aim is to help build a stable release for a bare bones bp-events 1.1. That is the most important task, upon which new features can be build.

    Make sure to read the readme of the trunk as installation will be different and more compliant with buddypress methodology of installing plugins versus wpmu.

    So…just a little more time or help is always appreciated :)

    Fantastic. Thanks so much for the update. I was a little confused as to who was working on what or if Erwin had abandoned it… etc. This clears things up a lot. Looking forward to this plugin for sure. Should be great. I would love to help… but my PHP skills are pretty limited.

    Thanks for updating this plugin, however, the ‘Events’ doesn’t show in the navigation like the old version, and there is no longer and /events page like before, sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Like I said, the directory view still needs to be ported. It is a major plugin, lot’s needs to happen still. We appreciate your patience.

    From the post above mine “The biggest part that is not included with the current port is the directory view, since that was still in flux when I started porting so I left it till matured.”

    Basically it sounds like Erwin will be taking over again to finish it up for BuddyPress 1.1. So we just have to be patient :) I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

    Ah, here I am =)

    I have (finally) upgraded to BuddyPress 1.1 on my test site (just the forums working in one click is just worth every minute of it!!). I have set aside (branched) the old version of bp-events (0.6) for people still running bp 1.0.3 (for whatever reason), and from now on, the trunk version on my site (and WordPress plugins) will solely work on BP 1.1 and beyond. Marius has put in a *ton* of work rewriting most of the code to keep up with the major changes to BP from 1.0.3 to 1.1. For the next little while, I will mirror the changes made to the trunk listed on this thread to the one on my site until we merge the two and go forward on one version (when I have figured out how to do this…)

    I am currently reworking the calendar view to have *lots* of AJAX “refreshments”…
