It doesn't seem to be a problem if all the boxes are the same. I figured something bad would happen if September shrunk especially with Mr. G's birthday which is enormously long.

Perhaps James knows how to create concrete widths?

I do now, but only because gerdami showed me how. I've appended table-style: fixed; table-layout: fixed; to the table's style. Fixed. (haha!)

New Calendar Website by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 24 Sep 2009 03:35

Yes, that seems like a good idea. Who wants to actually make the new site?

Don't forget calendar:_template.

In this way, the person can put their calendar include wherever they want

I would suppose the default is inc:calendar, and the person can rename the page if desired? They still need the code that goes on that page.

I Agree by Timothy FosterTimothy Foster, 24 Sep 2009 02:36

Oh! THAT's the problem!

I've noticed this behaviour has only been like this since Timothy changed the code from %%date| to %%created_at|

I've reverted the change and all is fine now. It seems there's a bug with the new Wikidot Syntax. Somebody should report this.

Okay, yesterday's Mini Calendar was just a proof of concept. Today I expanded the original calendar to include the mini functionality within it. This reduces the pages used from 10 to 8.

But I reckon 8 pages is still a bit much.

We could rid one more page by merging two categories though. I propose we merge the event and response categories into a new category: calendar

I also think we should have all the javascript on a single page: calendar:_javascript. This would make the javascript much easier to manage.

This category should be responsible for the framework of the calendar, so it should have the main backend pages:

  • calendar:_css
  • calendar:_backend
  • calendar:_backend-include-full
  • calendar:_backend-include-mini
  • calendar:_javascript

In this way, the person can put their calendar include wherever they want — this sort of thing varies from site to site, on the Wikidot Community, the include category is include, not inc. Some people may want to store their include code to the page calendar, which makes things really simple to understand.

But to demonstrate all of this, I would suggest creating a new Calendar website, because this one is a bit messy and confusing with all of the pages now.

Time to optimise! by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 24 Sep 2009 01:04

i see all responses say the same :-

13 days ago (10 Sep 2009, 08:33 +0100)

i get the same as timothy by Phil ChettPhil Chett, 24 Sep 2009 00:11

This is how it renders for me (at the time of 9:56AM AEST, on 24/Sep/2009):

Person Date signed up Response
Timothy Foster 12 days ago (12 Sep 2009, 04:56 AEST) On one cpu, it didn't, but it did on another...
Phil Chett 12 days ago (12 Sep 2009, 04:56 AEST) well does it?

I would say that the javascript engine on your computer was unable to pick up your local time zone for some reason. Perhaps try restarting your computer.

Re: What the? by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 24 Sep 2009 00:01

Am I the only one getting this problem (event:8):

I am sure we didn't respond at the same time.

Check on the first event too.

What the? by Timothy FosterTimothy Foster, 23 Sep 2009 19:59

Very nice! I like how it connects to the other calendar, too.

I added float functionality, and changed default to 200px.

Really Cool! by Timothy FosterTimothy Foster, 23 Sep 2009 12:24
oh we like this! by Phil ChettPhil Chett, 23 Sep 2009 08:55

I believe the documentation is somewhat complete. Feel free to modify it if change is needed.

With that said, are we ready for launch?

That “back” link is genius!

Thanks! It was funny… I was messing around on Answers.com and came across an error with a similar link. If you can't parent, then that at least comes closest.

Thanks to yesterday's implementation, this is no longer a problem: %%site_name%%

I must say, that's actually rather genius! Nicely done.

Wow done! I mean, well done!

That “back” link is genius!

I noticed that the iframe takes the URL from this site… Is this a problem?

@ Timothy by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 18 Sep 2009 00:02

Is this a problem?

it will be if the new users are not aware that they will need to make some changes to the code.

keep going timothy. you're doing a grand job.
let us know when you think you're ready for some tests.

don't forget that this doc will need to be readable and usable and followable by numpties.

Is this a problem? by Phil ChettPhil Chett, 17 Sep 2009 17:10

I noticed that the iframe takes the URL from this site. When the pages are transferred to other sites, the iframe will need to take the URL from that site. Is this a problem?

iframe again by Timothy FosterTimothy Foster, 17 Sep 2009 16:32

Began a new Documentation page.

I also added functionality to the events where adding the _no-respond tag will make the respond information disappear.

iframe CSS by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 17 Sep 2009 01:08

Okay, I understand what you're talking about.

I didn't know about Erich's trick, thanks for pointing it to me :D It's a brilliant trick!

As with the iframe, we can actually edit the colours with CSS. All we need to do is tell the iframe calendar to retrieve the calendar's CSS, and apply some classes to the elements of the iframe.

Ahhhh by James KanjoJames Kanjo, 16 Sep 2009 23:29

I did some testing around in the sandbox, and unfortunately, I am correct. The pages needed to be made would have to be in the same category that the calendar is on. Since we know not what category people will put this calendar in, we cannot make those pages.
