Plugin Description:

SimpleEvents plugin is based on I18N plugin's hierarchical navigation (therefore it requires the I18N plugin to be active).

Plugin's management site is located in the side menu of "Pages" tab in GetSimple CMS admin panel.

After plugin's activation on the plugin's management site you have to choose the parent page for events from existing pages (on this page the events' list will be displayed, new events will become it's subpages). If the chosen page already has subpages, they will become events.

Adding events

Choose "Add event" link from the plugin's management site.

Browsing events

Choose "Browse events" link from the plugin's management site. The pages list will be displayed with events highlighted.

Editing events

Events can be edited in the "Pages" tab, in the same way as any other page.

Deleting events

Events can be deleted in the "Pages" tab, in the same way as any other page.

Special fields: date, time, place

Plugin adds the elements for adding data (input) for event's special fields on event's add/edit page (note: input elements for date and time are added only for events in default language, because in translations date and time remain the same). To unfold them you have to click the "Page options" button.

Events list

Events list is displayed on the events' parent page as unordered list (ul) of class "SimpleEvents". Every event in the list is displayed as follows:

<li><span>[dates]</span><a href="[url]">[title]</a></li>

Events are ordered from newest to oldest.

Past events are displayed below current events in the same form, additionally provided with class "SimpleEvents-past".

If no current events are found the content of the events' parent page is displayed (so you can put a paragraph informing about the lack of current events there).

Events' pages

On each event's page special fields' (date, time, location) values are displayed as header tags (h2) of class "date", "time" and "location" respectively above event's content.

Plugin's deactivation

After deactivating the SimpleEvents plugin you have to remove it's configuration file (data/other/simpleevents/config.php) and events' pages if necessary.
