Decent functionality, horrible layout (4 posts)

    In my opinion, it would have been an excellent plugin, if not for its layout, which is a table-div-inline-CSS hell.

    To give you just one example, in order to separate a couple of buttons by 5 px, the author placed them in a table, put a div between them, and set the width of that div to 5px, instead of just using a margin. There are divs within spans within divs within table cells within divs all over the place.

    And you better make sure you have enough Timezones, and your "magic quotes" disabled, otherwise the plugin will remind you of your shortcomings on every page of your admin panel (!) with huge banners, that will push your useful content half the browser window height down, until you find the way to disable them.

    There are some glitches, for example, jGrowl pop-ups "Loading events... " sometimes just remain there after the events has loaded (I had to set the opacity to 0 for the entire container div, to hide the damn thing completely).

    All that said, I'd like to confirm that the plugin offers decent functionality with lots of options. If not for its layout, I'd probably rate it five stars.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    If you would, please explain what you meant by "enough Timezones".

    The alerts and the jgrowl notifications will be revised in the next release, addressing those issues mentioned.

    Again, thank you for the input.

    Dear Eran,

    first of all good work. Your plugin has very good functionalities as Dimitri is commenting above. I have tested and does the its job well.

    However the look and feel of the UI is also key for the user experience. As for the developers side...

    So, besides the good coding methods for the UI layout you have to also give it a workaround regarding responsive design features and a more efficient way to modify the layout using CSS, etc...

    Any plans on this area?

    All the best and good luck.

    Umberto
