Aha.

Mine is NOT working, but in an odd way.

From this thread it links to 'Forum Problems', from another to 'Layout Construction', and from another to somewhere else.

It seems to be linking to the forum topic home page from where I click. All with the same error message as above.

Ok, looks like our Tech or @Tank are going to need a look at it.

Mine continues to work using an old version of Firefox.

From this thread it jumps to report an event page as you report.  Strange, destination appears to be linked to origin.

Using firefox latest version on win10 home.

Just for clarity for others, it is the "link to calendar" button at bottom of thread page being discussed, not the calendar menu item at the top which works ok.

Hmmm. I just erased your original post using the link! Got me stumped. Perhaps you might like to post that error message again, @NinOz

I'm not sure what's happening here.

Maybe it works differently for moderators than mere mortals. Especially as the error message (I get it as well) relates to permissions.

Once again, hmmm. I'm basically in the dark here (I've never had occasion to use the feature), so I'm going to hand over to @Tank and @Only Me

Ha all …….can someone explain to me in Lehmans terms what you’re trying to achieve here please, as all I see at the top of the screen is a calendar entry from someone saying testing

Yeah, that was me playing around with the link. I replaced the message Ninoz got with Testing. Apparently people are getting links weird places and error messages.

I'm out of my depth here as I have never had any need to use the calendar link.

So when you create an event it asks you for title and date and then which section of the forum (a drop down list) to associate it with…. Default is exhibitions…..
Then you click create and it makes a post to  paste info into… I just created one for tings to test and it worked perfectly I’d need to see a screen shot via pm
Or in this post of the issues people are seeing please

No.
From this thread if I click on the "link to calendar" button at bottom of thread page, it jumps to report an event page.  However if I click on the button on this page ( https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=1459.msg723208;topicseen#msg723208 ) I get:

    N Gauge Forum »    For Sale / Wanted  - Hidden from users with less than 10 posts. »    eBay

An Error Has Occurred!
You aren't allowed to modify just any post.


I assumed that clicking the button from any page would just jump to the calendar page.  Just a bit of a surprise outcome.  Perhaps it is doing its thing, whatever.

This has nothing to do with the calendar menu item at the top of the page which seems to work ok.

Using firefox latest version on win10 home.

That area of the forum you won’t be able to modify posts/add
Entries as it’s not your own there but elsewhere you can create calendar entries to shows etc (there was a missing setting which I’ve applied)

Ps calendar entries are globally visible to all logged in users…
