Things that bother me:
1) The html and css are awkward and ungainly.
2) It creates a new page for every event.
It's way too expensive for what it offers.
Better than nothing
- PHP Code Quality is not as good a core. That makes it harder to customize. ( even the check for C5_EXECUTE is missing in many files )
- t() funtion is rarely used. So this has to be added by user.
If it was free I would probably be satisfied. But for this price I'd expect a better quality.
Amazing work, needs documentation
Glad the calendar add on worked well for you and your client. As for the documentation, we are going to be updating our documentation for the 5.5 update across the board, so calendar will definitely be included in that.
1. NOT TRANSLATABLE
The plugin does not make use of gettext, so there do no translations exists and it is not possible to create one expect for hacking the core.
2. HORRIBLE USERINTERFACE
You might say the user interface is interesting, but I say it is horibly broken.
3. BAD MARKUP
The HTML-markup is not really semantic and bad to style using css.
It is not true that it is broken, it works fine for thousands of clients and particularly well for larger sites like colleges where you may have many individual calendars run by departments that need to be aggregated in a parent calendar.
I also don't believe we've ever claimed that all add-ons are built to W3C validation standards.
It's always disappointing to hear that an add-on isn't serving someone's needs, but it is not accurate that this is "disastrous software".
Regardless, this customer has already requested and received a refund.
Calendar Block rocks!
You can see it in agenda mode here:http://nevadalightningfastpitch.org/... and the teams button will take you to the aggregated calendar for all the teams in the club.
Take a look at the styling on the month view here:http://www.myweddinglibrary.com/index.php/almanac/...
There's a bug on latest version!
This makes it difficult to see other events on other days unless you refresh the page
ok, but??? correction
Has anyone else had this problem?
I'm using monthly view.
Thx for this piece of cake!
One thing to fix: events to get display as pretty url. (maybe it already is)
Keep up the good work!
No editing of an created event?
Not localized properly
A couple of strings are not passed through the translate function and also date handling is not working smoothly with international formats.
Overall it is still working like it should. But if I pay this much I expect a product to be of at least the same quality as the concrete5 core.
Being able to change the design of the event page to Left Sidebar or anything else than event would be a nice feature - at this time once event page design is changed, the event will not display within calendar.
After using this block more, could I be so bold as to add one further suggestion please????
If its possible, could an overlay be incorporated into this block so that effectively we do away with the calendar_event page and the detail within each event is illustrated without clicking through?
I'm sure this is a whole load of work, just thought it might add that little extra wow factor.
you can edit events through properties
put the detail page in edit mode, goto the property tab. you should be able to edit all the details there..
the print calendar idea is going on the roadmap.. thanks!
Maybe a print button would be helpful and also I would love to see the ability to change the events you add rather that delete and re-enter.
Other than that, excellent add-on.
