New functionality : the events

Post by Shadow on June 26th 2017, 10:57 am

Forumotion News : the events on the forums.


Dear users,

Forumotion is glad to announce a new functionality on the forums : ''The Events’’. This new option is added to your forum in order to help you to organize and plan your events and to get unique interactions and exchanges with your community. Cool


What is the event system ?


Thanks to this exclusivity, your members can now create an event with a good description of it, in real life or virtually and they can share it with your community. Meetings, festivals, concerts, demonstrations,…etc. everything is possible ! It’s up to you to find the best events that will interest your community to share with your members unforgettable memories ! ;D

Directly linked with the calendar, the events of your forum will let you organize in an easy, ergonomic and useful way every kind of activity with your community.

See example:

You can set up the permissions of the event in your administration panel. Members that will get the opportunity to create events can be more implicated in your forum !
Strengthening your bonds or sharing new things, the events are the best way to organize and plan meetings or special opportunity on your forums !


How to activate the event system ?

To activate the events on your forum, you just have to go in your administration panel, Modules tab, and then go to Events. Everybody can create events or only some groups that you set up with the permissions.

See example:

A new option in the main menu will appear when you activate the events. It will let you go on the special section of the events.

See example:

We won’t tell you more and let you discover by yourself all the possibilities of the events on your forums. Very Happy
You can now create and organize everything you like, so don’t hesitate anymore ! And the best is yet to come… Cheer
See you soon for other news,

Reguards,
Forumotion Team. king

If you activate this option, you will notice there is no image for the link in the navbar.  To fix this, go to AP > Display > Colors & Pictures > Pics Management (Advanced Mode) and click the see examples button for events.

Hello,

Thank you for your reports, it's a pleasure to see that you like it Mr. Green

About the templates, for now they are not available due to some changes that might come in the future Wink If we give you the possibility to change it now while they're not perfect, we may encounter some big deals later Wink I hope you understand :rose:

Thank you again ! flower

@Tonight and @Kami-sama You need to make sure you add a time and date of start and end to the system before posting.

Please take a screen shot of the parts you are filling in and then the error page Smile

Thanks for the fix.

Some additional questions/problems:
1) Is there a reason why it isn't possible to change the position of events (and wiki) in navbar?


2) Why can't we translate/change the name of events?

After the recent updates the HTML was disabled by default. Had to enable it again. Has this event update caused this?

I do not have that issue on my 2 forums.  What forum version do you use?  Also what device are you using?

Hello @Tonight
I had this same thing happen before on the Publications system and this is what Shadow told me Smile

@APE wrote:@shadow Found today that i can't move the Publications in the navbar to where i want to
No matter how i try i can't move it from the top left to by the main PM system
Think Tap

@Shadow wrote:Hello @APE ,
I don't know what happened I couldn't reproduce the problem :o But anyway, I changed it for you, I had to put the portal up the publications and then I could move them, I don't know why ...
But it's solved, you can now move it as many times as you want Smile

If you are using the theme by Ange Tueteur, you need to visit FM Design.  There is a topic about events in the support section for Edge.
