Updated Monthly Calendar View

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:

Excellent.. Worked like a champ.

Thank you!

Wow... I just did almost the exact same thing by myself. It's quite uncanny actually. The only real differences are that I centered the Monday-Friday headers, and instead of "WEEK" I used "VIEW" (Makes more sense to me, I guess).

I moved a LOT more of the style to CSS though... makes it extremely customizable without template edits. Too bad I can't release this now without people accusing me of ripping you off. :rolleyes:

I also had replaced all the Editor buttons with that same Silk set too, like your other Template Mod. Although I just saved them as GIFs and didn't have to bother with any template edits. :) I swear you've hacked into my test board and stolen my modifications. :p:D

OMG THANK YOU.

WHY isn't this default calendar style? current calendar is barely useable, imo.

Go ahead and release it. Who cares. I plan on releasing things to give people ideas and don't care if others modify them and re-release them or if they come up with similar ideas on their own. Let's get back to releasing many different options insteadof having to deal with one option.

This shouldn't touch any templates outside the Calendar group. I can't recreate the problem. Though I see you uninstalled it. The change may be incompatible with your custom style.

Installed on all 3 of my styles. Just makes sense and looks great. Thanx.

Tungsten 03 Jan 2008 15:11

Nicely done! *installed*

gator777 03 Jan 2008 16:20

Installed! I would like to see the date numbers larger and bolded to stand out more. They are the same size as the birtdays and do not stand out at their current size. How would I do this?
