The Calendar Widget shows an event as a blue box with no text or title showning nor on MouserOver/Hover, Why? This is very little informative.

Also how is it possible to include iCal support link for the whole calendar?

I see this when hovering over the blue box with my mouse:

Yes, but that’s just an ALT tag showing with delay. We expect something similar to happen as when hovering over an event here: [Removed by OP request] and not just the blue box.

Also how is it possible to include iCal support link for the whole calendar?

Hello,

A small modification tot he calendar-widget.php file in the calendar folder can enable basic pop ups on the widget.

If you look in espresso-calendar-widget.php (calendar addon) around line 83 you will see the following:

//Changes the colors of the events as seen here:
					//http://code.google.com/p/fullcalendar/issues/detail?id=6&can=1&q=css&colspec=ID Type Status Milestone Summary Stars
	$espresso_calendar_widget .= 'eventRender: function(event, element) { ';

After that add this code, of course feel free to edit what is shown.

$espresso_calendar_widget .= 'element.qtip({content:{text: event.title + " " + event.startTime}, position: {my: \'bottom center\', at: \'top center\'}})';
$espresso_calendar_widget .= ';';

The pop ups look something like this – http://d.pr/i/hMzK

Hi,

Thanks! That’s perfect, will this be included as standard in a future update?

1.
Is it possible to include iCal support link for the whole calendar? Both Calendar and Calendar Widget?

2.
Can I have the links to my website removed from this support please?

Hi,

Not sure, it isnt on the road map, but I can add it to our feature request list and see if we can include it in future versions.

1) Possible? Yes I believe it is. I am not sure if we are doing further work on the calendar or other addons in version 3.1.X, but I can add this to our feature request list as well.

2) Done.

Hi,

If it’s not on the road map will what I just added then disappear with your next update?


Dean

Apologies, I should have mentioned that, yes it will. I have added the item to our feature request list and I’ll see if the devs are willing to add it in as its only a couple of lines, but it goes via their internal processes, so it may or may not be added for a while.

Thanks. I must say that I’m surpriced that this feature haven’t been added long time ago – as it does exactly what everyone would expect to happen on MouseOver.

Yes, very strange that it hasn’t really been requested yet. I have requested that this feature gets added to version 2.0.7 of the calendar.

Thanks!

Glad to hear a full calendar subscribe option is in the pipeline, I too am looking for a way to implement that.

Is there a way to find out when this is available through the pre-release channel or via a custom file implementation?

Hi,

The best way to check for features is to examine the Change Log when an update occurs. The pre release content is also added to the change log, and generally the updates for normal plugins and pre release plugins occurs at the same time.

Hi

Is it possible to make the little blue (rounded) square (which looks strange) fill the whole date field? Like the yellow’ish “Current day” does?

Hi,

The calendar colouring is added after the calendar has been created on screen by javascript, so it would take a reworking of the javascript to make it do that, so it wont be an easy fix.

The main reason why it doesnt cover the full day, is so that multiple events can be clearly seen, see here for example http://d.pr/i/fIh1
