What is it ?
It's a simply Advent Calendar. I've filled it with images,music and videos (youtube or myvideo).
Each day (there are only 24 ) can have an image url or data (data like: <object ....).

How does it works ?
Like an advent calendar. I've created an simply template with an iframe in it. In this frame you will see a background-picture, doors (is the word correct ?) (calendar days) and - if you set it to on - snowflakes.
This calendar can only use on december and a day will only open if it's the correct day or an earlier day.
Example: it's 7th of december, so you can open all day include the 7th.
Each day will give a popup window (you can change the size for each day).
If you try to open a calendar day on a later date it will give you an error (confirm script) - this can also, when a day is "empty".
Empty means:
You have entered an image-url but selected "data" (in admincp) or you selected "image" but the image-url is empty.
After install all 24 days are filled will "funny movies", "pictures", "flash" or "music". You can change everything you like.

There are a few settings (is online, snowflakes on/of and count of snowflakes).
Also there are only 2 permissions:
- the permission to use the calendar
- the permission to test the calendar

If you set a usergroup to test the calendar, the users can see and click all the days of the calendar - that needed for testing !

Some technical
The iframe-size is set to 1024x768 and can changed in the template adventcalendar.
All images, javascript and the background html lies in: images/advent.
If you wanna change the backgound-image, change "images/advent/wallpaper.jpg".
The snowflake image can also changed (images/advent/snowflake.gif)

Installation
There is NO installation READ.ME !
Simply upload all files and import the product.
The product creates a plugin that used $template_hook[navbar_buttons_left] for the navbar.

P.S. deutschen Support gibt es auch bei your-vb

Hello again,

Should this still work for December 2011, because some users can see the entire calendar already?

:woe:

Hello,

I installed it and it re-filled it, everything works fine and my users are all very happy.

Some have the IE Problem, I will try later on to use the solution you showed here.

But some have a new Problem: They have I-Pads. On the Ipad the Calender is opening, also the doors can be opend. After the open door I have pdf files. Also these files can be seen. But they can not be scrolled, because they are not opend as pdf files.

Have you an solution for this?

I found an interrims Solution, I only changed the size from 800 x 600 to 800 x 80000 so the side is long enough to be scrolled ;-))

I suspect that if you are really still on the old version of VB like I am, that there will not be any modifications to this add-on to make it mobile friendly. I think the people who are supported versions have better luck.

I will be trying to get up to version 5 soon.

Hope maybe you figure something out

I made Word Files, because Users sent me Photos, Stories and and, than I changed them into PDF. After that I used the code from the You Tube and changed the URL to my Advent Adress.

I will be trying to get up to version 5 soon.
I was not sure if this will work with an older version.
