so i tried this out and and disabled it just as quickly as i enabled it. The calendar creates some sort of weekly view on my main page of my forums. I can't have it displayed there. i am not seeing any settings for changing it either. the website that supports this is in another language. is there any support for this extension in English?

if not is there another calendar extension i can try for version 3.2?

Did you take a look at the ACP? Especially the display options?

now there are only 2 things that keep this from going live on my forums, and in actuality, really only one cause the other issue is more of a "cultural annoyance" that everyone could get used to.

issue #1 - the appearance. as noted above on my forums that used a dark theme you cannot see the numbers on the days nor can you see entries like birthdays. in my above example there are two birthdays on the calendar. if there was a way to adjust the colors of the calendar itself i think this extension would be all i needed even with Issue #2

Issue #2 - the date format when making a post. Like i said this is more of a cultural annoyance and one my users could get used to but when making a post and entering the calendar options, the date boxes go "day" "month" "year" and my users will more used to a "month" "day" "year" format. this issue is not a deal breaker and would not stop me from using it

The real issue is really the appearance of the calendar itself. I would never hear the end of it from my users if they can't "see" what they entered. Hopefully there will be a way to "tweak" the calendar a little bit for dark theme boards. My board is using the "Hexagon" style which is a prosilver based theme if that helps at all

with the calendar in your browser, right click on any of the text that is the wrong color. choose "inspect element" from the right click menu.
your browser may be different but it will have something similar.

when you do that, a window will open showing you the code that relates to that spot on the page. look for the css that controls the font color.
it will tell you what file to look in and what line to look for.
open that file in your text editor and change the color to whatever you want.
in the case of this extension , that file will be:
ext/hjw/calendar/styles/prosilver/theme/calendar.css

luck,
robert

And in addition to what robert said, you should create a separate folder
ext/hjw/calendar/styles/YOUSTYLENAME
copy the contents of ext/hjw/calendar/styles/prosilver into it and make the modifications in there, so it is not overwritten when you update the calendar files

But remember, that calendar is still in BETA state (but is very stable)

I must be missing something here. :?

The "Calendar" link on the main forum page tries to take me to a folder that doesn't exist and therefore I can't see any calendar whatsoever.

Any ideas ?

the obvious answer would be that you have not installed it properly.

it would help if you posted a link to your board so we can see what is going on.

The extension is installed fine and I can configure all options in the ACP.

What appears to be missing is a directory called /calendar of which the "Calendar" link is looking for ...

The download for version 3.1 only contains the extension folder.

ok, well the extension does not really create a folder named calendar. it does it all from within the extension files.
I just installed it on two different boards and it works as intended. the calendar link in the navbar does point to a path that includes a folder named calendar even though that folder does not exist. however, on my two test boards it works as intended.

I would say to disable the extension and delete the data and then re enable it again and see what happens.

That gave me a clue to what was wrong.

Apache server’s mod_rewrite module wasn't enabled. Enabled it, restarted Apache and all is well.

:D
