Project description


vs.event provides an extendes event functionality for Plone


  • recurring events (based on p4a.ploneevent)

  • a new calendar widget

  • real support for all-day events

  • working iCal/vCal export for all-day events

  • full integration with Plone4Artists calendar (must be installed seperately)

  • support for supplementary-events (one master event and several depending events)

Supplementary events

There are case where some particular event in reality consists of several date. E.g. for conference you need an event for the conference date itself. However you often have additional supplementary events like a deadline for a call-for-papers or a registration deadline. With vs.event you create an event for the conference itself and so-called supplementary events for the call-for-papers and the registration deadline. The supplementary dates are events themselves but linked with the primary event (using the Archetypes references). So with vs.event you will see all supplementary events for the main event or jump directly from a supplementary event to its main event. This feature is optional and can be disabled through the ZMI in portal_calendar -> vs_event_supplementary_events.


Add vs.event to the eggs and zcml options of your buildout.cfg. Create a new Plone site using the vs.event profile or install vs.event through the quick installer of Plone.

Known bugs and limitations

  • the localization of the date picker widget support only ‘en’ and ‘de’ so far. The date picker widget will use/present the US date format for languages other than German.

  • tooltip showing title/time within the P4A calendar does display all-day events properly
