Eventish content types


Creating and programming event and eventish content types in Plone


Plone supports events as content. Events have a start time, end time and other fields. They can be exported to standard vCal (compatible with Outlook) and iCal (compatible with OSX) formats. A default calendar shows published events in a calendar view.


Recurring events (events repeating with an interval) are supported out-of-the-box on Plone 5.

This is provided by plone.app.event (documentation)

Purging old events

After the event end day the event stays visible in Plone listings.

You need to have a special janitor script / job if you want to delete old events from your site.
