    I have three event categories. Each one has a custom avatar/image uploaded. Some events fall into more than one category. In month view, the pop up only shows the last category avatar/image. How can I show all applicable category avatars/images

    Not sure I understand what you are asking. In month view, there is a small popup, and unless there is a featured image for the event, the default category image is used (if the event belongs to said category).

    What is the URL to your calendar?

    Yes, but I have more than one category. We’re a university, so we have categories for our academic calendar. Day, Evening, and Graduate. We use the calendar to display class start dates, class registration dates, etc. For example, Thanksgiving holiday break applies to all (Day, Evening, and Graduate), whereas our MBA Online Course Registration only applies to Graduate. So, for Thanksgiving, I would want all three category images to show up, but it’s only showing one. I hope that clarifies.

    I forgot to include the site: http://www.lasalle.edu/academic-calendar-staging/?ai1ec=action~month

    Mainly, I’m trying to do this to make our site more ADA and accessible to views with different eye color disorders. Would like to use symbols for each category so that those with color blindness can distinguish. This is an ethical and legal issue for us. We’re trying to find creative ways to make sure we’ve exhausted all possible solutions.

    If I understand your setup correctly, there should be no problems, if each event is under a single category — the image will show that particular category image.

    If you assign more than one category for an event, it can only display the one category image .. how can it display all 3? If this is what’s happening here, then I don’t believe this method will work for what you are trying to accomplish, unfortunately.

    Ok, thanks for your response. I am hoping to show all three, like the three colored dots that appear. Wanted to use symbols (circle, square, and triangle) so that people with color blindness could distinguish the different categories for those events that fall into more than one. I will submit as another idea.

    If there is a feasible way to do this task, then of course:
