Support » Plugin: My Calendar » open events detail in page instead of popup

  • Resolved Kosjka


    This is the first plugin that’s real close to what i want.
    Now i’m customizing and come along some stuf I don’t understand.

    * There is the thing that I would like event details to open up in a page instead of a popup. I think I have to set that in Calendar output settings but I don’t understand how. What link to use if i want to achieve what I want? Could you help me out?

    * Another thing is that the calendar sizes change if there’s only one event available, see
    Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

    I really hope that i can change these this so i can start really using this calendar

    Having the event details open in a new page requires defining a target URL for your calendar on the settings page – it can be a link to any page in your site that includes a [my_calendar] shortcode.

    Regarding your second question – using the list format, the length of the list will vary depending on how many dates have events occurring. There’s no way to prevent this from happening other than using CSS to define a height for the list and overflow:hidden – but I certainly don’t recommend that, since it would potentially result in some events being hidden.

    I have a follow-up question regarding the [my_calendar] shortcode for the detailed event page view. With the detailed event page URL specified in the settings area, when I click the event link (widget is using {link_title}) in the sidebar, the detailed event page is displayed in the default month view.

    I’m assuming that the event ‘id’ must be passed to the shortcode so the event details are displayed. Could you advise which shortcode attributes should be used in this case? I tried this but it does not work:

    [my_calendar id={id}]

    Thank you.

    Never mind. I found that replacing {link_title} with {details} at the widget template resolves my issue. With a simple [my_calendar] shortcode in the detailed event page, clicking the sidebar event link now opens the detailed event page as expected.

    I’m still evaluating your Calendar plugin for our site and will be making a decision shortly.

    Thanks again for a fine piece of code.
