JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Import V1.4 Events Suggestion

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

I imported my V1.4 events using 'Convert Legacy Events'. This converted my 6 categories as 6 ICAL subscriptions each containing one of my categories. This is not what I would have preferred.

Now, when I add a new event I have to choose an ICAL subscription (Education) and then a category (Education). I think you need to allow for importing into a single ICAL subscription while preserving the original V1.4 categories.

As an alternative, provide a procedure to merge ICAL subscriptions so I can achieve this goal if I wish. This could take the form of sample SQL to be used in phpMyadmin.

Cheers!

I was thinking exactly the same thing last night.

I intend to change the migration to create one ics file and multiple categories.

In fact most people will only ever need one native ics file which then makes event administration far easier.

Just changed the code in SVN so that we have:
  • A single default native ICS file
  • We create such an ICS file automatically
  • We use this default ICS file for data migration

Outstanding. I'll refresh my test site back to prior to installation, and reinstall/re-import to test.

Thanks Geraint,

If you update the files you can clean out the relevant jevents data tables/content by cilcking the advanced tab and then delete ical tables. You won't need to reinstall then
