dhtmlxScheduler Plugins for WordPress and Joomla! Updated to Version 2.0

| Comments (40)

Following the recent release of dhtmlxScheduler v2.2 and the new skin for the calendar, we’re happy to introduce updates for its WordPress and Joomla! plugins. They have been updated to version 2.0 and now support the most significant features available in dhtmlxScheduler v2.2, such as Unit View, the mini-calendar extension, and a feature that prevents events from overlapping.

The updated administration panel of the plugins gives more control over the calendar appearance and behavior. Through the simple interface, you can choose how the calendar will look on a page, configure access rights, and customize any detail of your scheduler. Generally, all the new features are reflected and available in the plugins’ new administration panel.

We’ve improved the Access rights panel with more options to manage the accessibility to the calendar.

In the Templates panel, you can easily customize the appearance of the calendar: change date formats and time scales, and also define how events will look.

In the new Events administration panel you’ll find an easy way to add, edit, and delete events. This is just another way to manage events in your calendar in addition to the online interface of the calendar itself.

The new version of the scheduler plugins also provides the ability to create custom fields for events. That means you can add different parameters which will give the calendar more flexibility and features. For instance, you can configure the calendar to display events created by different users in different colors (we’ve often been asked about this feature, so here it is).

Finally, as a nice addition to the WordPress plugin, the new version of the scheduler allows you to add a widget to the sidebar content to display upcoming events.

Please go to this page to get version 2.0 of the WP plugin for dhtmlxScheduler. The updated Joomla! plugin can be found on GitHub.

    How to activate the custom unit field?

    • Mike May 26, 2010 at 3:33 am

      Never mind… I thought the option in the custom field area was a “radio button” option haha. Sorry…. (Took me about 3 hours to find)

    Is there any plans to make this work with the Multi-Site version of WP3.0? It would be fantastic to be able to use this plugin.

    • Inga June 16, 2010 at 12:41 pm

      We already have it as a development version. We plan to release it till the end of the next week (it’s on testing stage now).

    Is there anyway to custom “access right” for Subscriber is able to only edit events of himself ?

    Thanks

    • Inga July 1, 2010 at 2:51 pm

      It is not possible, currently they can be allowed to edit all events, not only their own events.

    I’ve already installed this on a wordpress website. I like this scheduler because it has an option to view by day, week, month and year. I also like the agenda . However, there are events that are an all day affair and it doesn’t need the time to be shown. There should be an option there to disable the showing of the time.

    Also, on the month view, the days when there are 2 events at the same time, it’s overlapping.

    Is there a fix to this?

    Thank you.

      “However, there are events that are an all day affair and it doesn’t need the time to be shown. There should be an option there to disable the showing of the time.”
      We plan to add this feature in the next version of dhtmlxScheduler.

      “Also, on the month view, the days when there are 2 events at the same time, it’s overlapping.”
      Please make sure that you’re using the latest version of the calendar with correct settings.

    Hello! I ADORE this plugin and before i donate to the project, I want to know how I can bring in my Google Calendar feed so that users can add their own events yet not be able to touch mine as it would be a read only feed. Additionally, how do users subscribe to the dhtmlxScheduler on my site?

    Thanks so much!

    • ivan July 19, 2010 at 6:51 pm

      Unfortunately it’s not possible with the current version of the calendar. We might add these features in the future.

  9. Kelley Chambers July 28, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Hi Ivan,

    that’s sad… I really wanted to do this… but I’m hoping you will add this in the next release.

    Additionally, the stable version NOR the new beta is resolving in my theme. Can you tell me if this is compatible with Rocket Theme’s “Perihelion”?

    • Stanislav July 29, 2010 at 5:27 pm

      Can you provide a link to a page where scheduler and the problematic theme can be checked?

  10. Fernan August 26, 2010 at 8:02 am

    Great stuff. I would like to know if I can remove the “powered by…” link from the lower corner. If so, which file it is in?

    • ivan August 26, 2010 at 12:32 pm

      Yep, you can.
      This line is in event-calendar-scheduler\codebase\dhtmlxSchedulerConfigurator.php
      (line 587 in the latest version)

      • liang September 13, 2010 at 10:26 pm

        to remove powered by , may I know which code for that?

        • ivan September 14, 2010 at 1:33 pm

          Please see the previous comment.

  11. sangeetha November 22, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    i want to add a one more image buttton like save,

    for example if the users button clicked it shows multiple users from db.
    one event is set to multiple users ,if event wil be meeting means it assign to multiple users..

    • ivan November 22, 2010 at 6:51 pm

      Unfortunately there is no easy way to achieve such functionality.
      It will require complex modification of the code.

  12. Sasha January 7, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Is it possible to configure the plug-in in a way that every user is able to see the events description on dbl_click while the rights for adding and editing remain unchanged ?

    • ivan January 11, 2011 at 1:56 pm

      Not exactly.

      Users, who have add|edit rights, will see an editable details form, so they will see description, and will be able to change it.

      Users, who have only read right, will see the same form, but in disabled state. So they will be able to read a description, but will not be able to change it.

  13. James August 26, 2011 at 11:07 am

    The sidebar won’t show items more than 3 months ahead of time… (setting in the “No of events in widget already set to 5). any advice?

  14. Eva September 17, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    The component’s great, but it overlaps the drop-down of the main menu. How do I send it to the background?

    • Inga September 19, 2011 at 4:45 pm

      Eva, what plugin do you use, WP or Joomla?

  15. Eugene November 25, 2011 at 10:50 pm

    I’ve read somewhere that you cannot have “Show blog posts as events” enabled otherwise you wont be able to create an event manually.

    Is there a way to turn this feature on “Show blog posts as events” and be able to create events manually?

    There must be a way.

    tnx a lot.

    • Ivan November 29, 2011 at 3:34 pm

      Unfortunately there is no way to implement it. In this mode, the scheduler generates events dynamically using posts list.

    Hi

    how do i get the Units to work in WordPress? I’ve just installed v2.3.1. However i can’t seem to find where i set up the Units.

    Thanks

    • Stanislav December 14, 2011 at 1:06 pm

      Create custom field of select type, and check “use as unit view” in its properties.

      • mark December 19, 2011 at 2:15 pm

        thanks @Stanislav

  17. Paul December 25, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Hi there!!!!
    I’ve used the online Skin Builder and replaced the files in the WP plugin, but that only takes partly care of some changes. The CSS and setup of the plugin is so different…. what do I do to change the skin of the plugin? I just can’t figure out where the differences are…

    Thanks!

    Paul

    • Stanislav December 26, 2011 at 1:33 pm

      Try to combine old and new css files ( add content from the new css file to the end of the old file ) and replace images in imgs folder.

  18. Ruben February 23, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I am using the Joomla module. I want to be able to have multiple Calendars with different configurations preferred, is this possible?

    • Ivan February 29, 2012 at 5:29 pm

      Ruben, it’s possible but requires customization (can be done for additional fee). The default scheduler package doesn’t provide such ability.

  19. Dan March 28, 2012 at 3:50 am

    Is it possible for the WordPress plugin to display the title of the event only and not the time. My space for the calendar is limitted and so when it shows the event all I get is

    05:00 The Ramb

    And I would really like the entry to say The Ramblin and they click on it to see the time and details.

    Thanks!

    • Ivan March 29, 2012 at 8:24 pm

      Dan, you can add the following code into
      wp-content/plugins/event-calendar-scheduler/scheduler_include.html :

      <script>
      scheduler.templates.event_bar_date = function() { return ""; };
      </script>

    Is there any way to change the font sizes in the event popups? Also I am not able to add events on the online interface

    • Ivan September 25, 2013 at 5:51 pm

      > Is there any way to change the font sizes in the event popups?
      We don’t provide such an ability for plugins.

      > Also I am not able to add events on the online interface
      Please make sure that you have correct rights. Also make sure that you’re logged in (especially for Joomla – it uses separated authentication systems for front-end and back-end).
