Introduction

The Create Event menu item shows an event creation form allowing permitted users to create events from the frontend of your Joomla calendar. If the logged in user has no edit state rights, the events must be approved and published by an administrator.

If you need a check if there is already an event within the time and date the user has set, then you can set the overlapping check setting to yes. It allows to control if a message should be displayed or even the save button being disable.

Event form

Reuse old event

If you create a new event and start typing the title a drop down list is displayed with events which do have a similar title. If the author clicks then on such an entry, then the page is loaded with the values from that event. It is basically an instant copy feature.

Overlapping check

It is possible to activate an overlapping check in the event form options. If this option is activated, every time when the date is changed of the event a check is done if there is another event in the same calendar within the same time range. If there is one a warning is displayed. Additionally you can set the parameter to Disabled which deactivates the save buttons.

If the check is enabled you have also the option to include location and room checks, means it checks additionally if the location and rooms of the events do overlap.

Event overlapping

Fixed color list

You can define a list of colors in the DPCalendar options for event editing. This means that users can choose from a fixed list of colors while manipulating an event. It is then not possible anymore to choose another color.

Disable fields

It is possible to disable fields or whole tabs that they will not be visible for the user who is editing an event. These settings are ignored for Super Admins as it is very likely that they want the possibility to change everything.

Options

The settings can be configured globally in the DPCalendar options or per menu item. If the value is empty in the menu item, then it will be inherited from the global options.
