Live Demo: Mini-Calendar at Qapla.com

This mod adds a small "mini-calendar" on the header of every page, next to the logo image.

It uses the built in "ad location" called global_header1. If you use an ad in that spot (most people don't) you will need to move it prior to enabling this mod else it will not show.

If the Calendar doesn't show and you're on a custom style it is likely the style does not have the ad location coded in. See post #15 in this thread for a fix

There are settings but it is setup to work immediately after installing. Most settings should only be adjusted by advanced users. The font sizes and locations are setup for English day and month names- you may need to manually edit the headcalendar_bop5 template manually for it to look right in other languages.

You can use it as a link to the default vBulletin calendar (default behavior) or not. Also you can choose to disable it in specific styles if need be. Finally you can choose whether it displays the date based off the server's timezone or the user's timezone. (Default is user's timezone.)

New in Version 1.1 - Option to disable the display of the mini-calendar by usergroup. (Primary or secondary will work.)

I don't anticipate there will be much further development on this mod, it was just a simple thing I put together for one of my forums I figured like sharing- it already does everything I can think it needs to do, but if you have a suggestion that adds to the value I will consider it.

Each <div> has a unique id so you can use additional.css to make changes as needed.

You can see the default calendar is "blue" on top. Various other alternative color options are included in the download (red, green, yellow, and more...)

Tested as far back as VB 4.0.8 and as recent as 4.2.0 and expected to work on all 4.x versions.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.

Bob is all set- it was his custom style that needed some custom CSS to get the text to show.

I'm afraid it's going to be trial and error. Look at a default header template, see where that code is, and try to figure out where it would best go in your custom template.

We have n/j/Y (1/29/2013) and would like it if this calendar would use that.

It would look like this:
Tuesday
1/29/2013

No day in our format, but I would like to keep that.
That simply won't fit in the calendar graphic... But in the mod settings - Header Calendar by BOP5 - there are 3 options, PHP date() Month Setup, Day of week setup, and day setup... You can change one of them to n/j/Y and erase the others if you really wanted- I can't image it looks good though.

So I have this odd issue..

The Tab shows up great and with no problems under Internet Explorer but not under Firefox 20.0.1 release..

I checked all the settings and everything looks right. Also if it works for Internet Explorer I would imagine it is set correctly..

By Tab I assume you mean calendar? Can you post a link to your site?

Do you see the calendar in firefox on the demo site? - http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread.php/550

Yes I meant the Calendar ( Tab )..

Darn I just realized it's my AdBlock that is stopping it from showing up in Firefox..

In "Easy List" was the problem as there are two lines that pop up that block this Calendar Tab..

~318racing.org,~linuxforums.org##.ad_global_header

and

/tapatalkdetect.js

Once I disabled both the tab appeared no problem..

Works so far on my 4.2.1 www.tooraktimes.com.au did I miss a solution though for my custom skins? Can I turn it off in some skins?

I'm working on a new theme and when I centered the logo the mini calendar disappeared.

I can see the tippity top of it in the lower left hand side of the theme/centered logo.

Any suggestions?

Use Firebug in Firefox or Inspect Element in Chrome and play with the CSS until it looks right, then add the CSS changes to additional.css.

In the mod settings, the one that say you shouldn't modify unless you know what you're doing, you would need to modify what is there based on your language version of PHP.

On php.net change to your language, then search for the date() function, and there will be a list of letters you can use for the day of the month, the name of the day, and the name of the month. You need to replace them in the settings with whatever your language uses. It's possible some names of months or days won't fit right, the calendar was designed for English words.

This mod is only for VB 4x. There is no where suitable to put it in 3.x without a lot of template editing.
