Installation

  1. Within the /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your sites ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.
  2. Within the /themes/third_party/ directory, copy the calendar folder into your sites ./themes/third_party/ directory.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
