A nice event for the Events users: a Release Candidate (RC3) of DNN Events 04.01.0x is available in for registered users.

For this release 04.01.0x, we have done 73 (!) issues compared to the current released 04.00.02 version. And these issues are not only bug fixes, but also a lot of enhancements and improvements. Most of these improvements are directly in line with the scope we have defined for of this version:

  • flexibility in the display and design (templating, themes),
  • easier distribution of events data (extensive RSSFeed)
  • a huge improvement on the data and table structure

We make this RC3 available as version 04.01.02, so that it can upgrade any beta 04.01.00 test site you have. If you have installed an RC already, just reinstall this RC3 over the existing one.

The Install pack, the source pack, the release notes as well as a script for structured testing of this version can be found on, a special site for the DNN Events module. You have to register yourself on the site in order to be able to access the download..

What can you do?

Please be aware that this version contains on a lot of code and table structure changes. Download the current Events RC and try it in a test environment, we strongly advise not to use it for production purposes. This is a build that have not been submitted, nor passed through the DotNetNuke Module Release Process. The build has received some testing and is made available 'as-is', therefore any usage is at your on risk. Like any beta software it is not recommended to install on production systems. Upgradeability from a beta version to a later beta or production version cannot be guaranteed.

If you find any issues, post your findings in this forum, so the Events team and others can benefit from your experiences. We are all volunteers!

Changes for RC3 compared to RC2:

  • Added templating of the the title and the complete description of the RSS feed
  • Added an additional token for the templating: [event:alldayeventtext]
  • Fixed disabling table header in the list view

We still have a SQL error from 1 or 2 users when upgrading their Events module, we are in touch with one of them and we hope this enables us to decide whether this is a module problem to be solved by the Events team, or a local database issue.

EVT-7296 Events Module CSS class: all !important arguments removed

EVT-8139 Event titles did not break on a new line in day cell of month view (Firefox only)
EVT-8166 Maximum number enrollments was incorrectly handled for recurring events: the number of recurrences was not taken into account. This has been corrected.

EVT-8222 Deletion of last category caused incorrect filtering of events in master/sub calendar situations.

EVT-9279 Added extra exception checking around Event Enrollment for paid events, to protect against user clicking 'back' in browser
EVT-9313 In list and day views the table headers always appeared whether you set Show Table Header to Yes or No. This is fixed.


EVT-5679 Events module: Optionally remove time functionality from display/data entry, Added new check box to mark an event as all day. This sets the start time to 00:00 and end time to 23:59. Also hides time in all view displays, not in the edit display.
EVT-5693 Recurrence pattern and end date can now be displayed in List/Day view, and collapsed to single line for recurring events.
EVT-6996 "Enroll for this event" is now visible for users who aren't logged in. The link now says 'Login to enroll for this event' when the user is not logged in.

EVT-7077 Skinable menu toolbar
EVT-8003 Added sorting and paging capability to List View with default setting in the Module Settings
EVT-8121 Removed the dependency of 2 connection strings in web.config, the Events module now uses only the standard DNN database connection string
EVT-8169 Visibility of detail of optional sections in Edit Events is now controlled by client side script to reduce post backs and improve user experience

EVT-8454 It is now possible to individually select the allowed views for the module
EVT-8594 Event title/details can be replace by a message defined in setting page for anonymous users and for event editors (for events of other editors). moderators/admins see all event details.
EVT-8763 Added setting to set Send Reminder default to True or False for all events in that module
EVT-9121 The module was partially dependant on whether the user is in site Edit mode or not. Replaced IsEditable with custom function IsEditor to remove this limitation.
EVT-9172 Enabled formatting of Week View header by adding CSS Class by  <tr class="WeekHeader">


EVT-5678 Templated display of Event detail view with the DNN TokenReplace functionality
EVT-7226 Module now sends email to the event owner when enrollment is Approved; Denied; Awaiting approval; Awaiting payment (before PayPal processing); Payment received (after PayPal processing); Payment pending (after PayPal processing); Added by admin/moderator/owner; Deleted by admin/moderator/owner
EVT-7227 A configurable list of enrolled users can be displayed on the Detail View

EVT-7230 Font color can now be set for category and category colors appear in all views

EVT-7387 The e-mail messages can be templated with the DNN TokenReplace functionality, so that the Admin can define the message as a whole
EVT-7423 There is now an option in Module Settings to set the number of days after which an event is expired. For Events records, this sets them to 'Cancelled' after the time period has elapsed. For EventsRecurMaster, this deletes any where there are no non-Cancelled Events, which then deletes any linked Events. This method ensures that where an Event is recurring, any expired events are retained in the database (but not visible), until all are expired, otherwise they could be re-created when the event is updated.
EVT-7436 Added an RSS feed to Month/List/Day/Week/My Enrollment views. These all provide the same set of data (i.e. not specific to the view).
EVT-7515 Display time or not: can be templated. A new check box has been added under end date in end view. This is ticked by default. If it is unticked, then the end date is hidden in all views.
EVT-7537 Admins can now enroll users. This enabled even if it is a paid for event, on the basis that admins may need to do enroll users if payment has been received by other means
EVT-7640 Allow users/roles to update locations/categories without being a moderator. Enabled through permissions grid in the module settings
EVT-7803 The module now exports Events data in .ics (RFC2445) format, including attendees. To support DST, the module creates a VTIMEZONE that is based on the server time zone. So it will alter times based on the DST of the server. This is best guess for now. There is now support for exporting recurring events, and allows for changes made to individual occurrences of an event. Priorities have been standardized to RFC2445 spec. Low = 9, Medium = 5, High = 9
EVT-7805 The default Reminder From email address can now be different from the portal admin address. The e-mail address can be set via Module Settings
EVT-7900 Added option for Location conflict checking

EVT-8221 Recurring events now have individual database records, so they can be manipulated independently
EVT-8494 It is possible to show icons for events (priority, reminder, recurrence, enrollment) selectable for each view. This can be done by a setting to show/hide event image in month- and week view
EVT-8687 Location is added to list/day views
EVT-8637 Users may now subscribe to be notified when a new event is added to the Event module instance
EVT-8719 Possibility select a custom theme  from the portal folders in module settings
EVT-8679 Copy to End Date link added to copy start date to end date


EVT-7659 Make the module complete XHTML compliant
EVT-7687 The Events tables have been redesigned en enhanced. Referential integrity is applied to database design for Category/Location/SignupID
EVT-7994 In order to simplify the allocation of sub-calendars, two list boxes are used in the same way that columns are selected in Event List view.
EVT-7997 Reworked the Add Event form. Updated recurrence section to show/hide the Period/Weekly/Monthly/Annual dependant on selected option.

EVT-8309 Corrected grammar error in Event Notification dialog box
EVT-8401 Selected Date and Culture are no longer passed to vCal processing since each event recurrence is now uniquely identified.

EVT-9201 Added indexes for foreign keys for performance
