    I predict this topic has many replies in very little time, most of which will probably be of the thankful variety. :)

    I’m going to test it right now! thx Dave.

    edit:

    installed and activated sucessfully, it seems to work well.

    to everyone:

    remember to move “events” folder to your active theme (read the readme.txt file)

    worked fine for me, but avatar cropping failed both during group creating process and after group was created when I went back and tried to edit the group – otherwise, I think you have something here!

    Great start! Just a couple of hiccups:

    1 – I was expecting an “Events” tab to show up in the main nav, but it’s not there.

    2 – I set the date for an all-day event at June 1st, but the date shown on the event single is May 31st (oops!)

    3 – Can’t create a forum topic (yes, it’s enabled in backend). My 2 attempts DO however show up in the event “wire” and the main activity stream, but with no topic specified.

    4 – I suggest adding an element to the activity stream dropdown filter: “New Events”, “Event Updates” or something.

    Thanks for putting in the effort to update this!

    edit – when I previously used the word “group”, I meant “event”. thus my post shuold have said there was an avatar issue with new events.

    @pcwriter – I didn’t test it in the default theme, but it added “events” to my menu tab on my custom theme

    Hmm. Also no navigation item for me in my child theme after site-wide activation.

    I can use the admin bar menus to get to it, or via my profile, though, or by typing in the /events URL.

    Event creation works fine. Some CSS issues, but easily tweaked for my dark child theme.

    Looking good — I’ll have a look and try and figure out what’s up with the navigation — I’m using a non-standard front page (forums rather than Activity or Posts or a WP page).

    Couple of (minor, styling) notes:

    1. Needs a <div class=”padder”> in /events/directories/index.php after the content div.

    2. (edit) Sidebar needs a padder class too in that file, it looks like, and the H3′s need class=”widgettitle” on them.

    Another thought. I’d probably add the event meta info for a single event above the navigation ‘fold’, like in single Group view.

    More testing and fiddling underway: functionality is looking pretty solid so far!

    Don’t take these notes as criticisms — it’s always good to have more eyes looking at something, I find, to help tweak stuff. I know this is an early release — just throwing out thoughts as they occur to me..

    Functionality:

    If a user is not member of a Group, but are invited to an event attached to that Group, they’ll get an invite to the Group but no invite to the event. That might be intended, but just in case. This also means that any friend of the Group creator can be invited to an Event attached to a Group, even if they don’t belong to the Group.

    Optimal functionality would, I think, be the ability to just override the filter that shows us who we can invite (ie don’t filter to friends, user-choice on the fly). If someone is invited to a Group-attached event, then optimally, they’d receive an invite to the Group and an invite to the Event if they don’t already belong to the Group.

    Update. OK after testing BP Events out there are a couple bugs. The avatar cropping does not work. There is no menu tab added. It did post messages to the activity stream though. This is still such good news though, forward progress!!!

    Heh. I was having a hell of a time trying to post more in this thread yesterday, too. Now I forget all the notes I had taken.

    For those who are also not getting a navigation item, a temporary workaround:

    Edit your header.php in your child theme, and add

    <?php if ( bp_is_active( 'events' ) && bp_core_is_multisite() ) : ?>
    <li<?php if ( bp_is_page( BP_EVENTS_SLUG ) ) : ?> class="selected"<?php endif; ?>>
    <a href="<?php echo site_url() ?>/<?php echo BP_EVENTS_SLUG ?>/" title="<?php _e( 'Events', 'buddypress' ) ?>"><?php _e( 'Events', 'buddypress' ) ?></a>
    </li>
    <?php endif; ?>

    to the #nav ul.

    @Dfa327 – You’re my hero!

    @stwc – Thanks for the code. At first it didn’t work for me but since my site is not a multisite I just had to remove ‘&& bp_core_is_multisite()’

    I seem to be having the opposite experience of everyone else: in a clean install of WP 2.9.2, the Events submenu shows up in the nav bar, but all the links lead back to the front page and there’s no apparent event-related control panel on the backend.

    This version is clearly not quite fully baked, but it’s definitely a step along the path. I made dozens of changes to it yesterday, but then figured that it was probably pointless and I ought to wait for a few more iterations.

    I kinda wish Dfa would drop back in to the thread and let us know more about his plans, though.

    Have you moved the template files to your current theme. It seems you have not moved the template files from bp-events to you theme.
    Move them to your theme and the links will work.

    I cannot express how frustrating this waiting has been. I just don’t know if BuddyPress is going to suit my needs moving into the future. Which is a bummer because there is so much potential here. I guess I will just stick with my 1.1.3 sites until I can move to another platform… Again. Uggh!

    Derek – While I am equally frustrated at the absence of an events plugin, I am personally of the opinion that even without and events plugin, I could never switch back to those other platforms that are just so frustrating and can’t stack up to BP. (read Joomla, Ning, Drupal, elgg, etc.)

    @Mike_Pratt I have been here as long as you have so you know that I am a fan of BuddyPress, however I cannot honestly say that my sites have not suffered due to some of the missing features that were standard on NIng. I had a ton of members that used the events system a lot and that was really one of the main hubs of activity on my sites. Let’s not be total fanboys here, this is a serious hole in the BuddyPress feature set. I think that in lieu of all the people looking to leave Ning that BuddyPress has to be on par with the basic community features offered on other platforms to snag those people who like I did abandoned that closed platform.

    Profiles
    Blog/Blogs
    Groups
    Forums
    Events

    These are ALL base features on any of the social networking software out there. I am willing to pay for plugins, Hell i bit the bullet and joined WPMU Dev for a few months last year and paid for (at that point) some of the few really good BuddyPress themes they had. I am not a deadbeat by any means, I will pay for a good working solution.

    …I’m sorry for ranting. We need, Events bottom line.
