Removing sideba (5 posts)

    I have installed and configured the plugin to work as a sidebar widget, and using the larger calendar, and it does everything I wanted - great plugin!

    However is it possible to remove the sidebar on the single page that I have the large calendar on, to give it more space? I am using the Arras theme but assumed I could edit the php of the large calendar page to remove the getsidebar function, however I cannot find anything suitable.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Regards,

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    That's a theme modification question. Plugins do not normally call the sidebar function.

    Read
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development,
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Templates
    and http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

    1. Copy one of the themes template files - depends what it has, maybe page.php
    2. Rename it and make sure you edit the header part with something meaningful.
    3. Delete any sidebar calls
    4. Then edit the calendar page (the one you have put the shortcode in) . If you have done the step above correctly, then in the template dropdown you should see your new template as an option. Select it, save
    5. Voila, no sidebars!

    Worked perfectly, thank you!

    While I am here... is there any way of adding the 'pop up' previews, like Column 2 of the Large Calendar, to the Widget? If I use Column 2 there, it inserts the descriptions in line when you hover over them, instead of having them pop up in a tooltip.

    Thanks a lot!

    it is a combination of css and html.
    Look at what is happening in the calendar and compare to the widget.
    create a custom css file for yourself or add to your theme.
