Hi i need to grab the events from another blog on a multisite setup and show them in the calendar addon. here is the function im trying to build… the calendar comes up, but no events come up…
switch_to_blog(6); // formations
I’ve event bought the api addon to try to accomplish this. Ideally id be able to use the switch blog function and pickup events from different blog. Even better would be to aggregate all events more perticular blog ids. that would be a great addon to the api… right now ive paid for it but dont think it fits my need.

Thank you for your messages, I am going to assign this ticket to Ashan and he will be able to take it from here and find you a solution. Please allow some time for him to get back to you, we greatly appreciate your patience and thank you for being a eventon customer!
I am not sure if the PHP approach you are doing would work I have not tried such thing. But I know the API addon would allow you to show calendar on another site. Following the instructions in API settings page you can copy paste the js code and paste it on whre you want to show that events.
Have you not tried that? If you have please let us know where you are struggling with that.
Hello – thanks for your answer. Id really like not to be limited by the js version.
the switch_to_blog() function is a quite conventional way for blogs to access other blogs in a multisite install. Most plugin support this as I think its pretty straightforward to implement. It actually often just work without developper effort.
the function basically re-routes any db call to the correct blog tables until restore_current_blog.
In your case it seems to work on the php side ( my calendar at http://dev-geo.huguesbp.com/formation/ shows the dates with their “have-events” class )
but the problem seems to lie within the ajax function and its return.
As i’ve bought all your plugin and 3 addons, I,d really be grateful if you could make this work. Im sure other developper and clients would be pleased to see a “multisite compatible” eventon version – you could wrap it in an addond… anyways… id be happy to help with the testing.
If you need a sftp and admin account on a multisite install, let me know.
Id really like to get this sorted out, thanks for your support in advance.
As you know we have a lot going on and lot of exciting things we are always working on so I am gonna have to move this into feature request and see if there is great demand for it for us to dedicate time to add this to eventon.
hello – ive made the api work partially – there is two things:
http://dev-geo.huguesbp.com/ – check out the Calendar section
its separated in two columns – left side is the desired component (called in php with my switch_to_blog) – right is the api embed.
please replace this file https://www.dropbox.com/s/9397rfdqt4uvo50/eventon.js?dl=0 to mail eventon-api folder. should fix one new window bug.
as far as getting it to look like fullcal, its tough one because when you click on a date in fullcal it has to connect to main server to pull data. It is something that is still in R&D
