A collection of Calendar Modifications

The monthly calendar in the default style is crowded and blocky with the day names on each row, unlabeled week view markers on the left and various other stylistic choices that make it fairly unusable. With this collection of modifications, I am aiming to make it more usable and present a better monthly view.

Some of the features include:
  • Single header row with the days of the week.
  • Better date boxes which have a square instead of a rectangular layout. More like a standard calendar view.
  • Easier to see highlighting of the current dates.
  • Previous month and next month dates removed for better viewing.
  • Link to the Weekly view on the left of each row distinctly says "WEEK".
Installation
Merge the style.xml file into each style you want to apply the changes to. This will only work on styles with unedited calendar templates. To do this follow these steps:
  1. Go to Styles & Templates -> Download / UploadStyles.
  2. In the Upload form, browse to the monthly_calendar.xml file
  3. For the Merge Into Style choose the style that these changes should be applied on.
  4. Tell the system to ignore the version number (just in case).
  5. Click Import.
  6. Repeat for each additional style.
You may need to add the following four lines to the second box under MainCSS -> Additional CSS Definitions:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This would only need to be done if you have made modifications to the CSS here in the past.

Updates:

I had the gallery replacement crop up too, btw, although it was simple enough to just delete the replacement.

That one didn't bother me as much as deleting all the additional CSS stuff I had in there before I added this. Although it threw me for a second as to where it came from. The first thing I thought is either I had been hacked, which I know couldn't have happened or an Admin changed something without telling me and they hadn't been on there before I noticed it.

Calendar Number Size & Jump Menu

Anyone now how I can move the calendar jump menu to the top of the calendar using this mod. I added $calendarjump to the monthly calendar template but no luck.

Also, the additional css controls the size of the calendar number for today, but can I also control the size of all the other calendar dates/numbers? This is in monthly view. I thought changing
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

would do it but no change in monthly view.

Any help is much appreciated!

whew - that was close. You should warn people that your import deletes existing extra css additions.
I had to pull mine out of a database backup.
great add though- may want to make the CSS manual until the overwrite problem is located.
Someone with less experience will not know what hit them.

I haven't had a chance to upgrade my development installation to beta 5 yet. Once I do so, I will make an updated XML file available.

I was going to install this but then I read that it deletes the extra CSS styles.

Is this true?

If so, is there a work around for that?

It only deletes (replaces, actually) the Additional CSS entries. Just make a backup text file of anything you have in there and re-add it after installing this.

I get this issue too. I think perhaps follow up events would appear after each current week expires. Is this not the case?

If you would have been reading the thread you would have seen this has happened to a few others and that you should back up your Additional CSS items. It's a good idea to keep a text file backup of those, anyway.
