• Hello Fabrik Community

    Fabrik is now in the hands of the development team that brought you Fabrik for Joomla 4. We have recently transitioned the Fabrik site over to a new server and are busy trying to clean it up. We have upgraded the site to Joomla 4 and are running the latest version of Fabrik 4. We have also upgraded the Xenforo forum software to the latest version. Many of the widgets you might have been used to on the forum are no longer operational, many abandoned by the developers. We hope to bring back some of the important ones as we have time.

    Exciting times to be sure.

    The Fabrik 4.0 Official release is now available. In addition, the Fabrik codebase is now available in a public repository. See the notices about these in the announcements section

    We wish to shout out a very big Thank You to all of you who have made donations. They have really helped. But we can always use more...wink..wink..

    Also a big Thank You to those of you who have been assisting others in the forum. This takes a very big burden off of us as we work on bugs, the website and the future of Fabrik.

  • Introduction​

    This scheduled task plugin will synchronize events between the list designated in the plugin's general settings and a Google calendar specified by the URL you supply in the 'Google URL' field.

    Note, as the screen shot below show, you need to install the latest version of the ZendGdata PHP library from http://framework.zend.com/download/gdata for this plugin to work.



    • Google URL - Full URL for XML version of the Google Calendar feed you want to import. This is found by going to the Calendar Settings on the Google page for that calendar, on the XML option for either Calendar Address (will only show public events) or Private Address (will show all events).
    • Sync direction-
      • From GCal - Sync Google calendar events to the Fabrik list
      • To GCal - Syncs events from the Fabrik list to the Google calendar. - Requires you to supply GCal Login and password.
      • Both - Syncs both ways. - Requires you to supply GCal Login and password.
    • GCal Login - If you selected Yes to Sync to GCal, you need to provide the login details for the calendar.
    • GCal Password - If you selected Yes to Sync to GCal, you need to provide the login details for the calendar.
    • Start Date - Element used for event Start Date / Time.
    • End Date - Element used for event End Date / Time.
    • Label - Element used for event Label (title).
    • Description - Element used for event description. This setting is OPTIONAL.
    • User ID - This setting is OPTIONAL. If set, the GCal owner email will be matched against your Joomla user table, and if a match is found, the (first) matching user ID will be written to this element (as if they had submitted it directly).
    • Google ID - Element used for event Google ID. Usually a hidden element, used ONLY by this plugin, to store the unique ID for each Google event. Needs to be a text element (VARCHAR column) of at least 64 characters. If you are using the default 'event' table that comes with Fabrik, you may need to add this element (usually called GCal_id), depending on what version you originally installed.
