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.

Installed and tested under v4.1.3 ...

Didn't work on our site .. un-installed ...

I think our custom style and logo is getting in the way as it worked with default style of vBulletin ...

Thanks for your efforts ...

Regards,
Doug

Probably this:

The skin must be missing the ad location in the header.

See Post #15 to put the Ad Location into your header:

The names of the days and months are from the php install, not phrases in vbulletin. I'm not sure what the PHP date() function offers in terms of different languages, I think it should show for whatever language php is installed under.

It wasn't something I was planning. I will keep it in the back of my mind if I get bored one day.

Where does this pull the date format from? Is it built into the modification or does it pull it from the date format we have set in our settings?

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.
