EXT Calendar Integration

Hey! just a request, id love to have user integration with ext calendar 2. It's beyond my abilities to make such a thing. http://extcal.sourceforge.net/

    Looks very useful, especially for clubs and organizations with lots of events to coordinate.
    One of my clients had a need for something like this, not as complex but certainly worth a look.

    Thanks for the pointer onetwentyeight.

    youre welcome. so far im digging it. my forum is a regionally based cycling forum, so this will be perfect for events, races, and planning rides. It'd be super helpful.

    What are you wanting in the way of integration?
    Would a simple link to it not be enough?

    the calendar requires users registering to post events. id rather just have everyone already have an account whos on the forum, as my forum is not publically viewable and neither do i want the calendar to be (its an option in the calendar software). there are around 550 members on the forum so its large enough that outsiders watching isnt something we really need, and id like to encourage people to participate in the forum by forcing registration over lurking. id also like to put upcoming events on the sidebar of the forum.

    Well, my tech guy did some hacking, heres what he said. so some more hacking, and things are working ok. the calendar is now looking at vanilla's internal session information (as opposed to vanilla's cookie, which is slightly diferent), so if you're logged in to vanilla, you're also logged in to the calendar. i migrated everyone's accounts over to the calendar db, so everyone who has an account on sffixed should be able to get to the calendar. i'm a little curious how users with spaces and other nonstandard characters in their names will work... i guess we'll see. let's see... you can't log out of the calendar. you have to log out from the vanilla page. doesn't seem like a big deal and is fixable if it's needed. similarly, you can't change your password on the calendar page since it's not using passwords, really (just your authentication data from vanilla). if you try to do anything on the calendar without being logged in, it redirects you to the vanilla login page. -- I think added a link to it with the page management extension, so we have a full featured calendar now on our forum! only thing left to do is figure out how to get upcoming events show in the side panel!

    the url is sffixed.com, though you must be registered to view either the forum or the calendar.

    here are some screenshots... the forum... besides this stylesheet, there is the default vanilla, and one more user created one. this is the one I made.

    sffixed

    here is the calendar. its pretty much stock, I havent made any modifications to it beyond defining some categories.

    theres really not much more to the site than what you see here. the vanilla forum is the heart of the site, the hard part was getting people to come to the forum and use it, but it caught on might faster than I expected, and everything is going well! it's spawned copycat forums across the US, too.

    Nice, thanks. My bro-in-law is one of those fixed gear peeps. Hangs with this NYC crew that build their own bikes under some bridge?!? (perhaps this makes sense to you)

    yep. black label. they do the bike jousting and the goofy tall bikes. theres something similar here called cyclecide but its more older, burning man types.

    I just came across a WP PartySpark plugin. Could this be an alternative?
