    You can view the issue at
    I have tested this with latest builds of Safari 5, IE 9, Firefox 4 and Chrome 10.0 under Windows 7 SP1 and OSX 10.6.7.

    Firefox 4 and IE 9 are rendering the calendar days wider than the actual calendar box. I changed the width variable and confirmed the background calendar box changes, yet the calendar days (being 7days wide) do not change.

    Chrome and Safari 5 are not exhibiting this issue. The issue wasn’t present on v1.0.3

  • Hi wast3gat3,

    Actually, this is just a simple CSS change. We have the min-width set for the table at 600px, which is why it looks weird for you.

    You can override that setting in your own style.css file if you need it to be thinner. We felt that 600px was the smallest it should be while still maintaining a good look.

    So, just override the ftcalendar css for the table and you’ll be all set.


    Thanks Lew for the fix.

    I edited single-post-page-shorts.css in the /includes/css and changed it down to min-width: 450px;
    I do think it looks better at 600px though.

    I’m a bit of a css scrub so I should probably of defined it in a style css somewhere in the thesis templates which I’ll look at down the track. For now it’s fixed 🙂

    I went through some older versions and this was present in past version of the plug-in, guess I never noticed it till someone pointed it out to me.

    I have another question.
    Is it possible to publish the post when the date arrives or possibly bump it to the top of the posts?
    Reason I ask this is if I populate the calendar now with future events I would like them to appear in the event sidebar widget and on the calendar but not show the post on the home page until the event arrives.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Wast3gat3,

    Because of the way the events are attached to posts, there isn’t really a way to display events on the calendar without them being published. We might be able to add a feature in the future that would allow events to show up for scheduled posts, but the event would not be clickable if the post wasn’t published.


    It’s a much better calendar plug-in that most I have tested.

    My monthly meeting I created a page that’s published but isn’t linked to anything, for the posts it would be good if it just bumps itself to the top of the posts on the day it was in the calendar. I guess it may prove to be a problem though on events that span 5 days and it just sticks itself to the top.

    Food for thought.

    Anyway thanks again for your help 🙂
