Event Calendar for WP and Joomla! Updated to Version 2.3

| Comments (19)

After the release of dhtmlxScheduler 2.3, we have also updated its WordPress and Joomla! plugins to include all the latest fixes and also provide a couple of noticeable enhancements. So here we are with the latest news about the most important additions that extend the functionality of the event calendar plugins.

Although not all the new features from version 2.3 are available in the plugins, with this update we did our best to give you more freedom to configure your scheduling calendars.

Scheduler Plugins

Scheduler Plugins

Private Mode

The most significant and long-awaited new feature of this release is Private Mode. The name speaks for itself: the new option allows you to set private mode (standard or extended) and manage the access rights for end-users. It’s a very useful feature if you need to restrict editing rights or events visibility.

Timeline View

The second considerable addition in this update is Timeline View, a new option in the ‘Custom fields’ section that gives you one more way to display events for multiple users (or other resources). You may use this feature to create custom fields as Timeline View. Here you also have the option to choose the time period for which the events will be displayed: day, week, month, etc.

More Stability

And the third update… But this one we can’t show- you can just feel it. We mean fixing the known shortcomings :) Really great work was done in that area, and now you can’t help but notice the stability and efficiency of the plugins.

Surely, the updates above are not the only changes. We made a number of smaller changes as well. The details about all the enhancements and the download links to the updated packages can be found in the appropriate documentation for WordPress and Joomla plugins.

    Hi Ivan, unfortunately also WordPress version is having troubles with fatal errors.
    I posted the problem at this http://forum.dhtmlx.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=14777&start=10.

    (Joomla) Is it possible to prohibit User to delete event that is going to happen in e.g. 2 hours from now. Administrator can delete event at any time.

      Unfortunately, it’s not possible. You can prohibit the users to delete the events on the whole, but not in some particular time frame.

    I had this programming running great except the last colulm of days of the weeks were cut off a bit. I tried installing and uninstalling the program through WordPress and FTP and now I am getting this message
    go to link to view screen cap

    Can you suggest what I can do to fix this problem?

    Thanks Gord

      Please try to click RestoreDefaults in admin panel.
      And also deactivate and reactivate the plugin if the last time you just reloaded the plugin over the old version of FTP.
      It looks like a problem with custom-fields, so probably reset of the config will help.

    I have been able to get the calendar/scheduler program to work again.
    It was a pain to do. I saved as much files as I could on my web site and then deleted my sql database and started all over again. Now the calendar/scheduler program is working!

    Just wondering, it is now November and I still don’t see this new version in the WordPress repository? Is this version stable and will the WP plugin page be updated to version 2.3?

    Can you put multiple calendars on one site?

    • ivan March 18, 2011 at 2:17 pm

      Unfortunately, no. Only one calendar per site is available.
      But you can use it in multi-user mode, so each user will see only their set of events.

    Looks great, works great, easy to use BUT completely worthless without the ability to display a calendar that is a subset of the total events. Just something with concept of categories would really help. Some type of filter. Doesn’t have to go as a far as more than one calendar per site but just some way of filtering to some subset. Can’t use it as is. The state of calendar plugins for WP is very very bad.

    Okay.. this piece of work is amazingly fun to work with…. I’ve just one issue.. okay I have many, but will address only one… HTML in the event box… it handles fabulously but if I put and “” in the code it tries to clean it up and injects the dreaded backslash \ and then proceeds to truncate the rest of the description…. I’ve tried to see if any of the documentation found linked from the admin panel would adhere to the plugin but it doesn’t as far as my regex can find… is there a way to default the engine in the “init” to stop this behavior?
