Event Calendar 3 for PHP 5.3
CSS Validation Errors - Suggestions For "Patch" (5 posts)

    Hi!

    I'm not sure how to get in touch with the developer(s) easiest, so I'm trying via forum and via mailinglist.

    Summary
    I tried to validate CSS at a site I'm working on, and I stumbled across two files with invalid CSS. In ec3.css some semicolons had to be added, and in eventcalendar3.php I added conditional HTML-tags for Internet Explorer and some "style"-HTML-tags. (I am aware that the latter has been corrected in Event Calendar 3.2 - but here, in Version 3.1.5 for PHP 5.3 it's still present.)

    ### The ec3.css
    The following is the entire(!) code of the corrected ec3.css.

    The opacity-selectors still don't validate, but I see no way to work around that, if you seriously want opacity.
    One possible workaround would be setting a .png with alpha-transparency as background-image, which would render intransparent in Internet Explorer 6 ("and below" ;) ). For designers who need to create opacity-like-effects also for IE6 and below and who at the same time need to create code that's classified valid via the W3C's validation service could use conditional tags for IE in their HTML (head section) to link to a specific IE6-css where they can put the opacity-settings. Other browsers would ignore the conditional tags. (See also notes below for the eventcalendar3.php-file.)

    ### The eventcalendar3.php
    As mentioned above, I am aware that this issue has been tackled in EC 3.2, which does not yet exist for PHP 5.3
    The code-snippet below is to substitute lines 185 to 239 in version "EC 3.1.5 for PHP 5.3".

    .ec3_ec {
     background-image:url(<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/ec.png) !IMPORTANT;
     background-image:none;
    }
    </style>
    
    <!--[ifIE]>
    <style type='text/css' media='screen'>
    .ec3_ec {
     filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/ec.png');
    }
    </style>
    <![endif]-->
    
    <?php   if(!$ec3->disable_popups): ?>
    
    <style type='text/css' media='screen'>
    #ec3_shadow0 {
     background-image:url(<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow0.png) !IMPORTANT;
     background-image:none;
    }
    
    #ec3_shadow1 {
     background-image:url(<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow1.png) !IMPORTANT;
     background-image:none;
    }
    
    #ec3_shadow2 {
     background-image:url(<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow2.png) !IMPORTANT;
     background-image:none;
    }
    </style>
    
    <!--[ifIE]>
    <style type='text/css' media='screen'>
    #ec3_shadow0 div {
     filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow0.png',sizingMethod='scale');
    }
    #ec3_shadow1 {
     filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow1.png',sizingMethod='crop');
    }
    #ec3_shadow2 div {
     filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='<?php echo $ec3->myfiles; ?>/shadow2.png',sizingMethod='scale');
    }
    </style>
    <![endif]-->
    
    <?php   endif; ?>

    Hi tarfis,

    Thanks a lot for sharing your solution with all of us. This validation affair was driving me nuts! I was doing it with php if statements and the W3C wasn't liking too much, hahaha.
    Take care,

    Marv

    by the way, until the developer includes my "patch" you can also use
    <?php global $ec3; $ec3->nocss=true; ?>
    in the <head></head> section in your wordpress template files.

    just insert the line right before the one saying
    <?php wp_head() // For plugins ?>

    this will prevent wordpress from loading the ec3-css. if you want to customize the style anyway to make it fit better in your page layout and design, this might be the best solution anyway.

    this will also make the "popups" disappear. e. g. you can copy and customize the original ec3-css into your style.css-file.

    hope this tip also helps!
