JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Category Questions

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.

While playing with this component a bit last night, I tried importing a usholidays.ics file. So I gave it a name of "2009 Holidays". When I tried to create it I got an error saying that a category is required. So then, I went and created a 2009 Holidays category. I guess I just don't understand why when you create a calendar, you must attach a category to it?

I created a 2009 Calendar with a "2009 Calendar" category tied to it.
Then I created 3 child categories, "Meetings", "Services" and "Banquets".

I really don't want anyone to post an event to the "2009 Calendar" category, so I left it unpublished. I like the fact that the child categories were still visible on the calendar.

Should that category still show at the bottom of the monthly calendar?

Should an end user still be able to post a new event to that category? The category is still displayed in the category drop down on the edit event page with the text "(Not Published)" after it. Maybe this is a setting in the configuration that I missed?

Thanks
Kris

Are you creating this event in the frontend or backend? Are you doing so as a Super Admin?

Try adding an event from the frontend as a user with less than god like privileges.

It seems to make no difference if I am logged in as an administrator or just a registered user. I still see the same thing.

OK - this was meant to only be used in the backend. I've fixed this and will commit to SVN later.

The reasons we specify a category for iCals are:
1. When importing we know which category to put events
2. When creating events we have a default category within which to place the new event.

I'll write a decent description of the intereaction between calendars and categories when I have a chance.
