Upcoming Events v0.4

It’s way past time for the 4th release of the Upcoming Events plugin. I’m sure this plugin won’t solve everybody’s problems with version 0.3, but I know it will solve at least a few of them. This is the code that’s been running on my site for the past few months. I apologize for taking so long to make this release. Fixes in this version include:

  • Use $wpdb->prefix for forward compatibility with WordPress
  • Provide limited support for recurring events
  • Specify that the background should be White in the CSS file
  • Display newly added feeds by default

That last item, display newly added feeds by default, will fix most, if not all, of the SQL errors in previous versions. This will not fix it if you are trying to updating an existing installation that’s exhibiting that problem, but should prevent the problem from happening on new installations. If you have an existing installation with an SQL error, make sure at least one “Display in default sidebar” box is checked.

    Tim,
    I tried twice to reply to you and both times I was told that I’m a virus or spam… so here’s my response:

    The error you posted on my blog:

    [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: Connection timed out in …. /wordpress/wp-content/plugins
    /upcoming-events/functions.php on line 56

    Makes it look like the web server your wordpress is running on is having a hard time retrieving the feed from the remote web server. If you paste the URL for the feed in your web browser, are you able to get the .ics file? Does the feed start with http:// ?

    I can answer this one.
    The repeating events information in ICAL is extremely complicated.
    I’ve been looking at it for a while myself trying to come up with some code that can handle all the repeats/exceptions/byday/bymonth etc.
    I understand 0.4 is adding some basic repeating event handling.. but it will still be a while I think before the plugin can handle all the repeat options.
