<![CDATA[ MIGXCalendar For Front End Only Fed From Existing MIGXdb, Possible? - MODX Community Forums]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/?thread=104808 <![CDATA[MIGXCalendar For Front End Only Fed From Existing MIGXdb, Possible?]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/104808/migxcalendar-for-front-end-only-fed-from-existing-migxdb-possible#dis-post-563613 I was looking to implement an external events calendar into an existing MIGXdb that is currently fully functional with its own CMP.

Then it dawned on me that I had over looked MIGX Calendar, however I read this line on it's MODX extras page:

"Its currently not meant to be used in production"

from this page:

https://modx.com/extras/package/migxcalendars

This made me cautious so I not try to install yet.

However, I know how fantastic MIGXdb is so it got me thinking that if it can work it would be a great fit with an existing MIGXdb

So I have a couple of questions:

1. Is MIGXCalendar still compatible with the latest version of MIGX?

If yes....

2. Can I just use MIGXCalendar for front end displaying data from an existing MIGXdb?

My use case would be as follows:


  • Load data into existing MIGXdb CMP
  • Feed data into MIGXCalendar from existing data base (use MIGXLoopCollection)

I'd be really interested to know if I can use MIGXCalendar as I have set out above

I'm not really interested in the front end editing functions of MIGXCalendar, I just want to display start date and end date ranges on a number of events that range from 1 day up to 2 or 3 weeks that have been read from the data base
