calendar not viewable - wordpress default .15 theme (20 posts)

    Hi. Apologize upfront for the stupid question, but I'm new to WordPress (only 3 days old), and I'm trying to figure out how everyone has cool calendars in their sidebars, and mine has #wp calendar css and, yet, nothing displays in my template for a calendar at http://www.evfamily.com.

    I have read through all the stuff i could find on search for calendar, and can't figure out if it's a style.CSS issue or I don't have something in some PHP config file at the page or theme level set to display it - as it just doesn't display at all.

    Can anyone help me to get the default calendar to display and / or show me a calendar plugin that's cool that I can use?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    The calendar isn't included in the default template, but to add it is a simple thing:

    1. Edit the file wp-content/themes/default/sidebar.php

    2. Place this in the file where you want the calendar to appear:

    <?php get_calendar(); ?>

    I'd recommend just above or below this line:

    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=<h2>' . __('Pages') . '</h2>' ); ?>

    Kafka.. you rock.
    It took like 15 seconds to end hours worth of frustration.
    Thanks!

    Now that that's fixed.. do you know of a way to make the calendar so that you can see future or past months - like the ability to scroll through months?

    And again, thank you so much!

    Month navigation will show up as long as you have content to navigate to. Your page only has content in February, hence no navigation.

    wow. ok, i have to say i'm very impressed with the level of support on this forum. makes me glad I chose WordPress.

    if every company with a product, supported its product with consumer service like this, well... we can dream.

    thanks, Cold.

    why isn't the calendar as default?

    Thanks for that question and answer - I've just recently started moving sites to 1.5 and this was one of the questions I had.

    Wow, thanks a lot for the above hints - I'm totally new to WP and to blogging in general, and help like here in the forums is sure appreciated!

    At this point, I must say: WP is a wonderful package and, considering the amount of individualization it offers, VERY easy to handle. It took me, as an absolute beginner, just 2 days to implement an all-new theme. Thumbs up!

    GREAT TIP. Now, do you know how to "size" the calendar to say, 80% of what is displayed as a default?

    Look for the #wp-calendar declarations in your theme's style.css. If a theme doesn't have these, you can copy them over from the default or classic themes' style.css.

    Below you will find what my sidebar template coding looks like (Yes, I deleted the links). Where do I put the "Get Calendar" code?

    :urg:

    Let me put it this way; using the default template, default sidebar does not have the "list pages" code.

    Never mind, I found it.

    (If it weren't for scotch tape my head would fall off.)
