Recommended Posts

uhhhh...probably a dumb ? but Unicorn Wrangler how/where do you load the demo content - the zip file for the Events demo? ...and where is it supposed to display?  I tried loading it at Pagelines Import/Export - but I don't see it displaying anywhere. Thanks, Nick - it's a great section - as always, really love this one - good work....really good work.

Hey There!

 

I'm not nick but I know the answer to this question.  You have to upload it using the WordPress Import tool.  In your dashboard menu, go to tools > import > WordPress and you'll see a place to choose your file. Click upload and watch it do it's magic.  If you've never imported anything into WordPress before, it will ask you to install the importer plugin before moving to the next step.

 

Cheers!

 

James.

Thanks James! Yes, import and export out of WordPress all the time. However, when i import the zip from the WordPress up-loader i get this error:

 

Sorry, there has been an error.
This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number.

quijote please go to Technical Support and start a new topic there: 

 

http://forum.pagelines.com/forum/78-technical-support-personal-business-developer/ 

 

This thread was specific to The Events Plugin, a third party plugin by developer Nick Haskins. 

 

If you post a new topic to that link, one of the Pagelines moderators will get to you soon. 

 

Thank you!

@masaizan hi there, 

 

I noticed that the Events Plugin is no longer available in the Pagelines store or on Nicks site.

 

I was going to purchase it as it was the best events plugin I've ever seen visually and functionally.

 

Since you own it , Does it still work with DMS 2 ? and do you know if its still available somewhere I haven't looked yet?

Yes, it is a good plugin.  If it's no longer available  at the store or on Nick's site, then I would assume that it is not  DMS 2. ready. I will see if I can find out what the plans are for The Events Plugin and get back to you.

onespirit, just spoke with Nick. He said he  has no plans to update The Events plugin but suggests that you look to Modern Tribe:

I have used this plugin as well, and it's a good Events solution. They have just done a major update to the plugin too.

Thanks a bunch! I really appreciate you taking the time.

 

Too bad about Nicks plugin, it's still the best I've seen.

 

Aesthetically they are not even on the same planet, which is what attracted me in the first place.

 

Thanks again!

Yes, I absolutely agree. It was a great plugin that was so perfectly and aesthetically integrated into Pagelines. That was the problem for me as well -  while there are some good events plugins out there - getting them to integrate well with Pagelines was always problematic. Well, maybe some of the new developers on board will develop a new Events extension. . Because i do think there is a need for a Pagelines events extension or plugin.

      Having a problem with an EVENT Post from Caledarize It. The Calendar page looks fine but when you go into the event itself the layout gets all messed.
      The Event calendar works fine and when you click on an event the page only works if you select only for "This event". The page needs to be for All events so they all look the same.
      Looks like conflicting code maybe?

      I am trying to "go by the book" to learn the fundamentals of DMS.
      The Docs refers to Demo Content. I've installed the WordPress Importer plugin and DMS Updater. When I try importing the demo XML file I get this error:
      Import WordPress
      Sorry, there has been an error.

      Hi, collegues!
       
      I installed "Events Manager" (5.5.3) by Marcus Sykes, but it destroys my site (JavaScript?)
       
      Would you say possible best ways to organize events area (business events, trainings, networking) on site?
       
      May be you know some examples, some good WP (compatible with DMS2) or DMS2 plugins that can help me, may be you know some issures that i should to overcome or to avoid?
       
      Thanks and good day!

      I would like to get the demo content for dms 2, but I can't find it anywhere and have looked extensively around http://docs.pagelines.com.

      Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I could add a way for users to search through events (only events) on the front page?
       
      Has anybody made any sort of 'Search' section yet, or any suggestions for other ways this could be accomplished?
       
      Thanks in advance for any ideas you might share!
