Event Calendar

This is an example of an event calendar page. All the colours are editable. Everything else just uses your theme styles. If you categorise your events you can colour code them to aid visibility.

You will also see images on the calendar and tooltips when you hover. This is new feature included in Version 6.3.1. It’s a little bit buggy on small screens so make sure you test it thoroughly if you want to use them.

The buttons showing the next 12 months is a feature I’m working on. If you want it send me an email.

    Hey Graham,
    first of all, great plugin! I will let you know (via donation and link-only test so far) if we go live. One thing I couldn’t get to work is:
    If a add an event lasting over several months (and set ‘Show event on all days’) the event is only shown on all days of the first month, but not on the second. Am I doing sth. wrong here?

    • Graham said:

      They should do, I didn’t put any filters in place to restrict things. I shall inverstigate and get back to you.

      Bug fixed and update sent

    • Stefan said:

      Thank you very much Graham! I received the bugfix version already yesterday and it works great. Perfect support – I appreciate it!

    Wish List: Display the Event Image on Calendar

    • Graham said:

      Already in hand Jennifer. Along with a hover tooltip that displays the full event title.

    • Jennifer said:

      Excellent, Thanks Graham!

    • Graham said:

      That was an easy fix. I’ll send you an update to play with later today once I finished tweaking and testing.

    I have the event calender as a widget on the left side. This part works fine. The problem is the colouring of the calender. It is following the theme basic colours. I use weaver extreme pro, which is very flexible but it does not give the options the calender needs without ultimately buggering all future widgets in the primary area.
    How can I switch it back to the colouring scheme set in the Calender Options?

    • Graham said:

      weaver…. :(
      I have so many problems getting the plugins to work with themes like this. The problem is they add the !important tag to many of their styles which messes up the plugin settings. The only solution is the manually code the styles into the CSS – and I can’t help you with this. If I were brutally honest I’d suggest a different theme. Weaver makes things overly complex for what is a really simple layout.

    Hi Graham,

    When I use the option to download a more-day event as a calender file, only the first day of that event is shown in the ics-file. Is that depending of a certain selection I made?

    • Graham said:

      Oops. That’s a bug. I’m sending you and update to test

  5. Luc van Gerrevink said:

    I noticed that for a more day event in the calender, the event is only shown on the first day of that event. Is it possible to show on every day of that event?

    • Graham said:

      Go to the calender options and check the ‘Multi-day Events’ box and you will see the event on all days.

    • Luc van Gerrevink said:

      Thanks Graham. that works excellent :)

  6. Kasha said:

    I changed settings in Event Manager and Saved changes but it does not take effect. Please advise.

    Thank you.

    • Graham said:

      Hi Kasha,
      Which settings did you change? I’ve just checked and all the changes I have made save OK.

  7. Mark said:

    I can’t seem to get the calendar to appear with the white space between the days.

    • Graham said:

      Hi Mark,
      The spacing is part of your theme styles. Line 176 has the style: table{border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing: 0px;} Change this to: table{border-spacing: 1px;} and you will have your spacing back.

    • Mark said:

      Thank you for the quick response.

    Thanks for giving guest registration plugin. I have some queries.

    1. What happen when 10-15 events is on a particular date, how calendar show this, from where we can control this ? (is it <>) ?
    2. Calendar not appearing on clicking start date and end date in guest event submission ?
    3. Any particular color setting to highlight today’s date on calendar ?

    Waiting for reply… thanks … pramod

    • Graham said:

      1. If you have 10-15 events on one day then 10-15 events will display on the calendar.
      2. The datepicker isn’t displaying because the script isn’t loading. I’ve sent you an update with a bug fix.
      3. To change the calendar colours go to the Settings > Event Manager > Calendar. You will see all the colour options.

    • Pramod said:

      Thanks a Lot Graham,
      my queries no 2,3 has been solved, date-picker working well
      sticking to query No. 1 , what i mean to say is what about vertical alignment of that date’s block / height … it look like too tall as compare to other date’s block which doesn’t have events…. ? can we control height. or shows only 3 event’s as. and when place cursor on that date, it will pop up other events..

      Thanks once again…. pramod

    • Graham said:

      Not sure there is much I can do about the vertical alignment but I will have a play and see if I can do something.

  9. Dante said:

    The color of my categories doesn’t apply to my events, what seems to be the problem? Is there anyway i could change it through css? what would be the code for that? Thanks in advance.

    • Graham said:

      Hi Dante,
      I need to see the website to find out why. When you set up the colours in the plugin settings are they saving correctly?

What do you think?
