Solved Calendar able to show different events in different colors?

Post by Castellana on August 4th 2013, 4:40 pm

Hello! Hello

My forum is a support forum for our local club. Therefore, we use the calendar to post upcoming events. We post events hosted by our club, and we also post events which may be of interest to our club, but not hosted by our club.

Sometimes the two different events occur on the same day.

So, we would like to separate the postings by color. Is there a way for the calendar to display the events of our club in a different color (and maybe boldness) from other events?

Thanks!

I still need help with this! Hello

Maybe if I post a screenshot you can tell better what I mean.



Look at August 18. There are two events listed on that day. Is there a way for me to,
- Make one of them a different color;
- Make one of them BOLD.

I can't tell you "No" there is noway because anything is possible, however the forum Calendars has no styling options to speak of and are very difficult to style even with css, let alone make it do what you want it to do. The short practical answer to your question is "No", You would be better served by adding a 3rd party calendar to an html page that is feature full and can do circles around the forums default calendar.

Is this the right place to discuss this option further?

Its as good a place as any I guess. You could try googling "embed calendars for your site" and check some out. When you find one you want you would copy the embed code they give you and paste it into an html page. You can create an html page for your forum by going to:

AP>>Modules>>

On that page scroll all the way down and you'll see on the left-hand side "HTML page management", click that ,then on that page you can create an html page you can paste your new calendar into. Then when you're ready to link it up to your forum you can ask here and I'll explain how to do it or someone else will. Smile


The new calendar won't know all your forum members because you need PHP to make it interactive like your default forum calendar is and you can't use php scripting on your forum in that fashion, so just know if you decide to get a new calendar its not going to know your members, you'll have to learn your new calendar and explain to your members how to use it.

So I'm just letting you know you might not want to do this at all since it won't be incorporated into your forum like the one you have now is.
