There needs to be a good calendaring system. Is there a good calendar module

Well - what is your definition of "good" :-)?

I was hoping that the calendar could manage categories. If used by NL sites, does it show ALL of the events regardless of languages? I was hoping that we could filter in/out categories, for example report on events for the last year in N.America and S.America or by NL events. If not then we could do it by hand.

I added one on the staging site (and also on the live site, but there
it isn't used yet)

Is it still on the live site? I can't seem to find it.

by default it will show upcoming events, to view past events use the
calendar-widget or the dropdowns below the calendar (clicking the
month will select the hole month as range, clicking next to a week
will select the week, etc), you can also use the URL notation to
filter the date range<fomdate>[/<todate>]

fromdate and todate are in format YYYYMMDD - but don't need to be
specified in full.
will display all events of the year 2010, 201010 would display all of
october, etc.

(existing entries mostly come from a no-longer actively used calendar
feed from OOoDeV)

There are two basic types of events, one type has a full page for the
content, the other one is simpler and attached to the calendar object

compare the two dummy ones.


I am all for moving the wiki events calendar to the CMS. It should be implemented for all languages. As usual, the NL teams could decide if they would want to have it or not. Not sure where it would sit on the menu, the "Get Involved" menu is already quite a busy menu line. Looks like the next logical place is in the "About Us" as this is where blogs and Twitter feeds are found.

Does this sound like a good idea everyone? Move the wiki events calendar to the CMS calendar? This way, we will have a history/record of past events for planning and marketing strategy.
