Feature request: Allow SEF Url request for Events

Reported by dleffler | October 4th, 2017 @ 01:49 PM

Links to calendar events are not human discernible since they are based on event/event-date id numbers, or unix datetimestamps. Perhaps create a new method 'show_by_date' which returns all the events within that year, or year/month, or year/month/day, or year/month/day/title similar to what is done in the News module. This in turn could be streamlined with a router_maps.php entry so that a group of events could pulled by:

with a router_maps.php clean link of:
Of course we'd need to add sef names to events and some sort of upgrade script to revise existing events...uniqueness would need to be based on specific date?

    While this may be able to be implemented as a 'hack', it can't feasibly be used due to the possibility of having several occurrences of an event during a set date. Looking at 2 functions

    • showall_by_date/show_by_date, to pull up an event or events by the date and/or sef_url
    • event_url, to create a link per above specs when passed a date using it's event and eventdate id's

    At a minimum, we'll need to add an sef_url field to the event table and an upgrade script to create unique names to existing events. Therefore (in theory), the 'event' is pulled up from it's 'title' and the specific event (date) is pulled up from the date params.

    Doh! forgot you have to be able to select the module by it's 'src' or by some unique sef_url (which we won't have for this module), therefore, the parameters will require a calendar name (use the existing ical sef url) or src.

    therefore the router_map clean link would be:

    Note, a biggest obstacle for this to be implemented would be since events become individualized (copied) whenever any parameter of any less than the total number of all events, which would create a new sef_url with an autogenerated unix datetimestamp attached to the ser_url.
