Installing & Updating

Requirements

Solspace Calendar 1.x is compatible with EE2 with mostly the same minimum requirements as listed on the ExpressionEngine Requirements page:

  • ExpressionEngine 2.10.x+
  • PHP 5.3.10 or newer
  • MySQL 5.0.3 or newer
  • Windows and macOS browsers:
    • Chrome 19 or newer
    • Firefox 13 or newer
    • Safari 5.1 or newer
    • Internet Explorer 8 or newer

Installing Instructions

  1. Unzip the download package:
    • Within the /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your site's ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.
    • Within the /themes/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your site's ./themes/third_party/ directory.
  2. Go to the Modules area in the ExpressionEngine control panel, find Calendar in the list, and click Install.
  • Upon installation, Calendar creates two new channels (Calendar: Calendars and Calendar: Events) as well as two new custom channel field groups (Calendar: Calendars and Calendar: Events) with a few sample fields. These channels and field groups are tied in together with Calendar.
  1. Setup and configuring:
    • To create your first calendar, select the Calendar: Calendars channel from the Publish tab in the ExpressionEngine control panel. Each calendar is actually just a glorified channel entry. You can add more this way, or edit existing ones as usual.
    • To create your first event, select the Calendar: Events channel from the Publish tab in the ExpressionEngine control panel. Each event is actually just a glorified channel entry that is related to a Calendar channel entry.
    • To adjust any settings in Calendar, click on the Preferences tab in the Control Panel area and then modify as necessary.
    • If you wish to install the demo templates, click on the Demo Templates tab inside the Control Panel area.

Updating Instructions

  1. Within your EE site's ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ and ./themes/third_party/ directories, delete the calendar folders.
  2. Unzip the download package:
  • Within the /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your site's ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.
  • Within the /themes/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your site's ./themes/third_party/ directory.
  1. Go to the Modules area in the ExpressionEngine control panel and click the Run Module Updates button.
