Calendar Integration
Hello, I just started using MyBB and so far I am liking how well it works and the ease of use.

I'm a slight tinkerer when it comes to PHP, I'm pretty good at doing some basic stuff and modifying code to get it to do what I want.

For the past 2 days I've been looking through these forums and online on integrating MyBB with the rest of the site I'm working on. I have all the user stuff and session figured out and I am currently working on the user bar for my site outside of the MyBB.

What I am having trouble now is trying to integrate the Calendar into a stand lone page on my site.

I want to just pull in the calendar and the add event section into my Events page. I couldn't easily find a mod or a walk through on how to do this.

My website is, if you click on the Events link in the nav you'll see an old php calendar I'm using, I want to replace that with the one inside MyBB.
Is this even possible?
Just wanted to update this. I figured out how to add the calendar into an external page.

for anyone else that may be looking, you have to go into the Admin CP.
I made a copy of the the calendar template and edited the content there to just have the table for the calendar output.

I then copied the content of calendar.php and pasted it into my external file, I made changes to the directory path for the required files so they all pulled in correctly. I then edited the external file to strip out all the calendar features I did not need (this is a display only)

I then went back into the Template editor in the Control Panel and made copies of the templates I needed to modify such as calendar_weekrow_day, calendar_eventbit, calendar_weekrow. Inside of those files I striped out the href tags so the days and events were not clickable.

You can see my integration so far by going to
Looks good, welcome to MyBB. Smile
MyBB is the best forum software! Exclamation
