Hi

In the documentation I saw that it can possible import CSV file (http://www.jevents.net/jevents-15-topmenu-17/documentation/124-importing-events-in-csv-format)

Can someone tell me how can I do that please ?

I´m using the version JEvents v2.2.1

Hello,

What issues are you having?

It clearly states how the CSV file should be created to allow successful imports.

Hello,

You go to: Jevents-> Calendars and create a new one and import from file.

Or, enable front end importing on Jevents calendar and import from the Admin box displayed on each Jevents Page.

Hello,

Look at that file in notepad or some thing similar.

You have missed of the headers completely.. these are needed. You also have "" everywhere! when it should just be a " at the moment your file looks like:

Code: Select all
"""Sport"",""Football Match"",""Football Stadium"",""This event is just for fun"",""Contact Name"",""Whatever extra-info"",""20120715T150000"",""20120715T191500"",""Europe/London"",""FREQ=DAILY;COUNT=10;INTERVAL=3"""



It should look like:

Code: Select all
"CATEGORIES","SUMMARY","LOCATION","DESCRIPTION","CONTACT","X-EXTRAINFO","DTSTART","DTEND","TIMEZONE","RRULE"
"Sport","Football Match","Football Stadium","This event is just for fun","Contact Name","Whatever extra-info","20120715T150000","20120715T191500","Europe/London","FREQ=DAILY;COUNT=10;INTERVAL=3"

Hi htnka you for your help

There is something strange..... in my localhost intallation I tested and I didn´t have any problem but when I tried in the server I got the error message "file_get_contents() failed, try fsockopen" and "Not a valid VCALENDAR data file: /tmp/phpNU1YYz"

In my local host I have the version JEvents v2.1.18 Stable Copyright © 2006-2012 and in the server JEvents v2.2.1 Copyright © 2006-2012

What can be the problem ?

regards,
jamarchi
