  • Configurable target forum
    The board administrator can specify in which forum the new threads should be created by entering the forum id (fid) in the plugin settings.
  • Configurable calendars
    The board administrator can specify the calendars that should be monitored for new events. This is a comma separated list of the calendar ids.
  • Force date/time format
    The board administrator can set a date and time format for dates and times that always will be used in the created threads. If left blank the posters preferred date/time format will be used.
  • Linked thread
    If enabled, the event details will redirect to the thread instead of the event details and moderation on the thread will also be applied on the event. When the user or moderator deletes the thread, the event will also be deleted. Thread approval and unapproval will also be applied to the event.
  • Templates with placeholders
    The board administrator can adjust templates for both the subject and the message in the plugin settings. Templates can be set for three event types: single day events, ranged events and recurring events.

Screenshots aren't enough to show the functionality of this plugin so I created a small demo video. The annotations will explain a bit more what you are seeing.
