JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Am going to buy if I can get the CSV upload function working

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.

PHP Version: 5.2.17
J 1.5

Browser: Firefox 3.6.3


I am working on attempting to setup a calendar on a site.
http://184.154.233.4/~powerber/index.ph ... &Itemid=33

I am currently unable to access all of the import controls from the backend. No problems, I instead take the site into maintenance mode and attempt to upload from the front end.

I've followed all of the publicly available info on setting up the csv file, and have converted the file to ical.

When I attempt to upload the file, no events are imported. I want this module as its the perfect solution for what I am attempting to do, and need the bulk upload option. Is this available in the paid version as i am only testing it right now on a dev site.

Let me know if you require more info.

Hello,

Why can you not access the backend? is that folder protected by a .htaccess?

You will find if that is the case, you will need to modify the .htaccess file to allow files to access the administration folder as certain files are stored there which the front end require.

Sorry for the confusion.

The backend is fully accessible. But when in Jevents there is no option to import.

I've seen the example csv files, but must be missing something as no items get imported.

Is it possible to get the free version working this way?

Okay, so upon further inspection I've discovered the import option via create new calendar. However it does not import any new items.

I suspect that its the formatting of the csv (which is then converted to ical).

Any tips...anyone?

You saw this article? http://www.jevents.net/en/jevents-15-to ... csv-format

You are using JEvents 2.0.11?

Did you "Allow Frontend Import of Events" in the Jevents config?

Yes, I'm using 2.0.11 of JEvents, and have front end importing as an option as well.

I've used the sample file in the article you mentioned. I've attempted to set the csv using excel and open office.

What are the delimiters used in this file? Could that be a problem?

I've used an online converter to change the csv to ical and the file won't import to google calendar, or into jevents. This is why I suspect that its the csv.

You need double quotes (") and commas (,). Some people have problems with double double quotes in their files i.e. something like

""this is text""
