[Plugin: The Events Calendar] How do you size the calendar to fit the page? (11 posts)

    This looks like a great calendar that will get the job done, but on load it is not fitting on the page, overflowing off the side margins...Template issue? Also, no control areas showing up. Does the user need to write code to use this? Passing it off to others for upkeep and they will get lost too easily. Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Howdy,

    I took a quick peek at your site and was not able to find where the calendar is located. Can you drop me a link? In theory, the calendar is set to work at 100% of your main body div.

    If you run the w3c validor, it stated you have some close td and close div issues. When I quickly peeked at your source code, I noted that a couple of lines up from the bottom you have a duplicate </td>. That may do it or there may be other template issues.

    Shane,
    Thank-you for the speedy reply. I will check into the coding issue. For now the calendar can only be viewed by clicking the "View All Events" in the Upcoming Event side bar link. At the administrator side, the dashboard is nowhere to be found, a message comes up that it has been disabled.??? We did some indepth searching for just the right calendar plugin and found that others are using this calendar successfully giving it a 5 star rating. We really want to be able to utilize it on this site, its' subsites and one more blog for the association. It has the features we were looking for. At any rate our PhP version is 5.2.0 and the newest WP version release. Any help you can provide is very much appreciated!
    Thanks so much!

    The plugin has rewrite rules taking over the "events" category. To see the front end, simply go the the events cat loop (usually something like http://mysite.com/category/events depending on your permalinks). On the admin, it is in the post editor as I'm sure you found.

    Can you copy the exact disabled message into a reply?

    Shane,
    "Dah" moment. Found the post editor feature...but still cannot find where the rest of the calendar tools would be.

    When looking at the php files the only one that is active is the one below:
    Browsing the-events-calendar/the-events-calendar.php (active)

    The rest have the similar heading banner:
    Browsing the-events-calendar/views/events-list-load-widget-display.php (inactive)

    The calendar grid still runs off the page. Were you able to see it at your end?

    Again, thank-you for your help with this.

    Shane,

    As for the actual error message, this excerpt should clarify the problem:
    <?php /**
    * This is the template for the output of the events list widget.
    * All the items are turned on and off through the widget admin.
    * There is currently no default styling, which is highly needed.

    All of the disabled files say similar. Not finding any default styling options in the widget admin.
    Again Thanks!

    I'll come back to this towards the end of the week. Need to focus on getting this next release out and making sure my business is in good stead. Poke this thread if no one replies by friday. =)

    I have a similar problem. I have a template with a sidebar and widgets. I can create pages without this sidebar, but I can't change the layout of category pages.
    Is here a solution?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Look here

    You can override the default templates any time you like. The instructions are in the documentation: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/the-events-calendar/other_notes/.

    I like this very much but agreed on the styling. By default it looks pretty awful because it removes sidebars etc etc. Maybe by default it should use the blog page because then the blog sidebars would show up and technically, isn't this a blog post event? If so, shouldn't it use whatever the default blog template is? I'm going to check that link you provided and see if I can style this thing so it fits the page. I would think this would be default though to use the style of the website we're plugging it into.

    Aside from that, looks like a great product. Thank you!

    Looks like a great plugin, but it seems that I'm having some problems with the calendar, list, and event pages sizing correctly on the web page. Maybe it is a conflict with my theme (Suffusion)? Here is the link to the page where the calendar is located: http://plymouth.websitewelcome.com/~svtp/?cat=33&eventDisplay=month
    (If the link won't work, let me know).

    I'm a real novice, and I don't know how to write any code at all. I've struggled my way through WordPress just to create what I have, but, from what I can tell, it looks like my problem is the same as Biscula's.

    I tried to figure out how to override the default templates like Shane instructed above, but I couldn't even follow the directions because I don't know enough about code. Could someone offer a very simplistic step-by-step guide for me to fix this problem?

    Thank you in advance, and sorry to take up so much of your time for such a simply question.

    Travis
