Updated Monthly Calendar View
Mod Version: 1.02, by Wayne Luke (Administrator) Wayne Luke is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.0 Beta 2 Rating: (12 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 133
Released: 19 Dec 2007 Last Update: 20 Mar 2008 Downloads: 408
Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

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:
20080121 - Removed template edit that was conflicting with Farcaster's Event Signup Modification found at here:

Will this work instead?

You should try:

<td class="alt2 daybox" height="100" width="$daywidth">

Thanks, Wayne.

Do we even need the daybox CSS line anymore since that is the only place that uses it?

You don't need it.. I don't really like inline CSS myself though so try to eliminate it when I can.

I'm having the same issue. I can't create repeating events any more. Is there any way to fix this?
