Great ! Just tested it... Umm.. what about viewing events per day ? when I click on a date I can only post a new event...

If there are no events listed on the calendar for that day then you won't see anything. You'll only be able to edit events.

You all are so silly - that feature is already there ;)

At the top you see the pulldown menu to let you jump to different dates right? The first pulldown menu lets you select the view mode (month, week, or day). If you select "day" it will display the visual timeline for your specified date like this: http://calendar.hypermutt.net/calendar. ... &calY=2007

If you want to see the full week try this: http://calendar.hypermutt.net/calendar. ... &calY=2007

Oh, thanks Mr. Perfect :D. I'd appreciate a more userfriendly way if possible or make it more obvious, maybe I can come up with a usefull idea later...

Edit: Sorry Mrs. Perfect :), now I remember... *name removed on users request* :)

Please call me Mrs. Perfect - I'm a girl - LOL

I would like to add icons to let you click to different views near the numbers on each date, but I'm having problems adding new icons and no one seems to want to help :( http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 1&t=582011

If anyone knows how to solve this problem (registering new icons with the style) - I'd greatly appreciate it!

I feel that the tables should have a consistent height. if not it looks really weird. should highlight the day when the search results of a particular day is displayed. :D

and also this

Nevertheless, it's a great mod.

The image is a dead link.... Also the only way to set table height would be pixels and that can tend to break things... I'm really not too familiar with CSS and divs which is why I used tables to create the calendar display.

Great suggestions...

I fixed the height... sort of... if you look at October things look better... but if one day has a LOT of events (see november 4th) most browsers will add to the height to make room for the additional event text.

With that in mind, I'm not sure there's a way to guarantee the height... unless I only showed the first x number of events, but then people would miss things because some events would be hidden to maintain the height - it's a delicate balance ;)

We could certainly add a highlight searched day feature, I'll be sure to add that to the list.

Thanks for the feedback!
Please keep comments/suggestions coming :D

We still have lots of enhancements on the list... I had a small family crisis and had to put things on hold. I should have more updates to the demo in 2 weeks.

Everyone is alive and well... thanks for asking.

Divorce is a long process - I expect months of drama, but thank god it's not me getting the divorce. Anyway I just had some short term family issues, and should be back to coding very soon... sorry for the delays ;)

As much as I can't wait for this mod to be released, family issues are far more important. But I'm glad everything is ok now. :D
