Admin Panel - Plugins > Events

The Events Plugin page allows you to manage all the Event entries in your network, determine the Global and Member Level Settings for your network, and manage Categories.

Manage Events

In your Admin area, go to Plugins > Events.

Select Events to view or delete. They are categorized by “Title”, “Owner”, “Views”, and “Date Created”.

Viewing an Event

You can directly view any Event that is listed on the admin panel by clicking on the "view" link next to the Event you would like to view.

Deleting a Single Event

You can delete an individual Event by clicking the "delete" link on the right side of each row under the "Options" column.

Deleting Multiple Events

You can choose to delete multiple Events at once by using the checkboxes on the left side of the table and the "Delete Selected" button at the bottom. Checking the checkbox in the blue line will select all the checkboxes on the list below it.

Global Settings

To get to this page, click on the "Global Settings" tab. “Global Settings” control the universal settings for Events and differ from “Member Level Settings” which control Event settings per member level.

Enable BBCode

BBCode is a type of code that is popular with forum or bulletin board software. You can choose to allow or not allow members to use BBcode on Event discussion posts.

Enable HTML

The ability to add styling, links, or media to a post with the use of HTML tags can be allowed or not allowed for the Event discussion posts. If you choose to Allow HTML tags in your discussion posts, you will still need to set which HTML tags are allowable in the “Member Level Settings” section.

Member Level Settings

When your members create an Event, they are given options for Event Privacy, Comment Options, and Photo Uploads. These options can be determined by you. For example, you can select them all so that during Event creation members can choose to have "friends of friends" view their Events and post comments, or have "guests only" view their Events and post comments. To get to this page, click on the "Member Level Settings" tab.

 Member Level

Select the Member Level that you want to change by clicking the drop down selector and choosing from the list:

Allow Viewing of Events?

You can then choose whether the selected Member Level is allowed to view, create, edit, delete, and comment on Events.

The "Yes, allow members to view all Events, even private ones" option is only available for member levels that are of the moderator/admin/super admin type. This option will allow members of this level to see all Events on the site no matter what level of privacy the Event has been set to. Selecting the "Yes, allow viewing of Events" will allow members of this level to view and subscribe to all Events which apply to members of this level. Selecting the "No, do not allow Events to be viewed." option will not allow members of this level to view any Event pages or see the Events menu item in any menus on the site.

Allow Creation of Events?

You can limit the ability of the selected member level from being able to create Events.

The "Yes, allow creation of Events" will allow members of this level to create Events. Selecting the "No, do not allow Events to be created." will not allow the members of this level to create any Events.

Event Privacy

Set the options which allow the members to select who can view Events they make.

Event Posting Options

Set the options which allow the members to select who can post comments on Events they make.

Photo Upload Options

Set the options which allow the members to select who can upload photos on Events they make.

Allow Event Style

Enable members to use custom CSS styles in their Events for a more personalized feel.

Note: the default system restricts users from creating and using div and id tags to prEvent members from accidentally ruining the site's layout/theme.

Allow HTML in posts?

By default the ability to type in any HTML in discussion posts is disabled. If you would like to allow a user to use HTML in their discussion posts, you will need to list the tags you would like to allow in the field below. An example would be: a, b, img, font, etc.

Note: there is still a pre-programmed list in the source code that limits the allowed HTML tags in an entry. If you would like to see the list of forbidden tags, please refer to the /application/libraries/Engine/Filter/Html.php file. These tags were forbidden to prEvent the corruption of the site's styling; however, if you would like to take any of the tags off the list, you are more than welcome to at your own risk.

Categories

Create categories if you want to allow your users to categorize their Events. In order to get to the Categories page, click on the "Categories" tab on the top of the page.

This feature is useful if you want to list all your users' Events. If you have no categories, your users will not be given the option of assigning a category.

Creating a New Category

  1. To create a new category, click on the "Add New Category" button at the bottom of the category list.
  2. Enter the a name for your new Category.
  3. Click on "Add Category" to add this category to the list of categories.

Editing a Category

To edit a category name, click on the "edit" link under the "Options" column for the category whose name you want to change.

It should bring up a popup just like the one used to create a category. When you have finished making your changes to the category name, click on "Edit Category" to save your changes.

Deleting a Category

To delete a category name, click on the "delete" link under the "Options" column for the category whose name you want to change.

It should bring up a module asking if you are sure you want to delete the following category. To delete the category, click on the "Delete" button.
