    great plugin in terms of features. But it is over styled. I would love to see a plain CSS that would sit better in any theme.

    The calendar looks nice on its own, but as soon as you sit it in any theme it destroys your theme designers hard work.

    By saying it destroys the theme - does it mean that it overrides any of your theme styles? So that areas that are not part of the calendar are being styles differently? If so, can you provide your website url so that I can take a look.
    It is very obvious that there isn't a solution that will suit all needs. WordPress, for example, ships with 2 themes but many of the websites out there end up with other themes. We would like to enable the same thing - custom themes for the calendar provided by the community. Until then, your only choice would be to edit the CSS yourself.

    No, the theme remains functional.

    My point is that the styling built into the plugin, like the blue boxes around dates, the roundedness of some elements, and strange backgrounds (like the yellow gradient in an event) is just too much style for a plugin to force onto a site design. It looks ok on its own and maybe ok in some themes, but...

    This is especially so in the widget which would most likely be used in a prominent place on the home page or a sidebar. I guess you can live with a calendar page that looks like it is an embedded Google calendar, but the widget needs to leave the styling to the theme.

    It would be better to have more basic styling so it would actually fit better with the design of more themes this way.

    Otherwise a great plugin.

    I see .. well how about you delete the styles that come with the widget and start over?
    This way, nothing will interfere with the design.
    Since it is a custom design, you should be able to apply the same custom design to the plugin.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
