The calendar feature, if enabled by the administrator, can be found from the Main menu of the forum. It can be used to record events, and can also display birthdays (from member profiles) and holidays. Administrators can configure the calendar via the Calendar Administration and choose which members can create events in General Permissions. From version 2.0, a mini-calendar displaying upcoming events is available.

Posting an event to the calendar

If the calendar is enabled on a forum and users are given the permission to post calendar events, users will be able to Post an Event to the calendar, by selecting Calendar from the main menu, followed by Post Event from the calendar screen. If the option is enabled, users may also be able to simply select the day of the month to post a new event on that day. In addition to this, if a user has the proper permissions, they may see a Link to Calendar link at the bottom of each topic. Selecting this link allows users to post a new Event in the calendar, linked to the topic they were viewing when they selected the Link to Calendar link.
