[Plugin: Events Calendar] HTML structure needs improvement (3 posts)

    I know it's a little snobby to raise criticism with a good, free plugin, but I thought I'd at least mention that the HTML could use some serious work. In a lot of places full tables are nested within HX tags. While this doesn't kill anything, it definitely isn't the best way to achieve a bigger font. I'm actually not sure what the idea is behind nesting structural code in HX tags--SEO?

    I would love to see this plugin built with tableless CSS. Ping me if you're interested in additional contributors. :)

    @jackson-gabbard,

    How would you go making a calendar without using tables? A calendar is a tabular data holder.

    Floating stuff around would probably be a nightmare.

    If you have proof of concept, we would be happy to look at it. We have a bug tracker on http://tracker.wp-eventscalendar.com/my_view_page.php where you can propose a feature and maybe provide an example?

    As for you remark about the HTML, I hear you. In fact, since I'm the new guy in town on this plugin, I have lots of ideas to improve the plugin. I am thinking about getting the HTML, CSS and JS out of the PHP code. Or, at the very least, the CSS and JS stuff. And for the HTML, I was thinking about maybe a class that would do the job, like a ec_html->div(array('class'='mine', 'id'='yours', etc.)) and stuff like that.

    Evidently, I'm not alone and democracy is the rule. So the team must agree.

    So please stay tuned. As a (new) team (please see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/292773?replies=2 for a bit of an explanation), we are evolving and working hard to make it work for you folks.

    Thank you for you patience,
    Laplix

    I just re-read your post,

    HX tags? What are you talking about? There is no such thing as a HX tag. Are you using some weird plugin?
