    Give me a bit. Probably forget to add it back when I updated the forum.

    It appears that modification no longer works with the current forum software.
    Mods outside the original forum software are not supported except by the person who developed it.
    I think it is more important to keep the forum as up-to-date as possible at the risk of loosing mods for security reasons.

    I'll keep on eye if and when it is either updated or I find a replacement.

    Manged to find an update, but it doesn't integrate the way it did before.

    You can go to the calendar, select social in the calendar jump drop down and create an event.
    Then it will appear at the top of the social section.

    We've lost the part that adds a thread.

    That is probably part of the problem.
    The button should be at the top.

    Give me the link where you added the event.

    I re-enabled the mods.
    Other that the new event button is on the bottom and the first post is blank, is everything else working?

    I'm waiting to see if Paul can do the threads like he normally does. It's holding up the calendar update for next month.

    The events are still listed under
    http://forum.nccbmwcca.org/forumdisplay.php?f=26

    Edit: For a workaround, I added to the Feb 5 event.

    to the calendar event.

    when i click on an event at the top of the social section, i can see my text and RSVP, however I dont see anywhere below where people can post a reply.

    however when i click on what i think is the same thread below where all the other threads are, my text is gone, and seems like only posts are allowed.

    very weird

    Yes I know.
    That modification no longer works with the current forum software.
    The only workaround is to have a link to the forum in the calendar description.
    If someone creates a new mod, I'll install it.

    I feel it is more important to keep the forum up-to-date, even if it means loosing a mod that was never officially supported in the first place.
