Getting started

Please check the parameter timezone in the app.php and reset it if necessary. After installing the components, change the default text fields (labels) in the components.


  • Events Represents all events from the current date as a list
  • Event Detail view of the selected event from the list view


The detail page must contain the parameter 'alias' as URL. For example: /event-detail/:alias


In the app.php, set your current timezone such as 'Europe/Berlin'



<div class="event-detail">
    <div class="event-header">{{ labels.titel|raw}}</div><!-- heading text -->
    <div class="event-title">{{ event.title|raw }}</div><!-- event title -->
    <div class="event-date">{{ event.date|raw }}</div><!-- date string -->
    <div class="event-time">{{ event.time|raw }}</div><!-- time string -->
    <div class="event-city">{{ event.city }}</div><!-- city -->
    <div class="event-text">{{ event.text|raw }}</div><!-- long text -->
    <div class="event-short">{{ event.short|raw }}</div><!-- short text -->


<div class="container">
    <div class="page-header">
    {% for entry in events %}
    <p class="lead"><strong>{{ entry.title }}</strong> {{ entry.date|raw }} </p>
        <p class="event_time">{{ entry.time|raw }}</p>
        <p class="event_city">{{ entry.city}}</p>
        <p>{{ entry.short|raw }}</p>
        <a href="{{entry.url}}">{{ labels.detail }}</a>
        {% if not loop.last %}<hr />{% endif %}
    {% else %}
        {{ labels.noentry|raw}}
    {% endfor %}
Placeholder :
    date  = date string 
    title = event title
    city = city
    text = long text,
    short = short text,
    time = time string 
    url = url to detail page
    labels.title = header title
    labels.detail = text for detail link
    labels.noentry = no events found

    Thank you for the plugin. The event can not be created because the alias field that does not exit in the event form, I added the code below to the fields.yaml

            label: 'xsigns.events::lang.form.alias'
            size: large
            span: full
            type: text
                field: title
                type: exact
            commentAbove: 'xsigns.events::lang.form.alias'

    and it worked. Please is there a repo where I can PR for all the changes that I made to the plugin.

    • The error, which resulted on some mysql servers, was fixed.
    • The alias is now generated automatically.
      $alias = Tools::standardize( $this->title);
          $res = DB::select("SELECT id FROM xsigns_events WHERE id != " . $this->id . " AND alias='" . $alias . "'");
          if (count($res) > 0) $alias .= '-' . $this->id;
          $arrAdd['alias'] = $alias;
          DB::table('xsigns_events')->where('id', '=', $this->id)->update($arrAdd);


Fixed an error while automatically creating the event alias.
