Updated Monthly Calendar View

vB Version: 3.7.0 Beta 2 Rating: (12 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 133

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:

I made a backup of my style before (I thought) .. but it just made a backup of Master Style and seems there's no "Customized in this Style" include.

When importing the calendar style, it should not delete existing CSS if possible, it should only add the calendar CSS.

If it's not possible to keep existing CSS, then there should be a special info about in the install instructions.

Lucky me I had a 2 months old backup copy of my style, although its outdated, it saved my day.

Granted, but making a backup in a simple text file of your Additional CSS items can save the day. It could happen again in another hack, you never know. I have learned the hard way to back up things like that just in case.

The XML file has been updated and shouldn't delete your additional CSS now.

Thank you, Wayne. Will this add the info to the end of the box or do we need to make manual edits if we have additional CSS in there already?

You will need to make manual edits. There is no installation code as this is not a product, just a template export.

I originally released it as an idea of how the calendar can look and was looking at incorporating it into a later to be released style based on PNG graphics and some neat HTML tricks.

Wayne, this failed validation:

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

Will this work instead?

<td class="alt2" height="100" width="$daywidth" style="padding:0px">
