  • Resolved gstricklind


    Wonderful plugin.

    This may be an odd question: How would it be possible to have the calendar display each day a different color? I’m thinking when an all day even is set up, a color selected, then that color be displayed on the calendar view without disrupting other events for that day. Each day would be different, no apparent repetition in colors. Only about 6 basic colors.

    Also, can a page be set up for year view? Also showing each days designated color?

    I appreciate your reply.

    Hey gstricklind. Thanks for the note here, and for your words on the plugin. Glad to hear you’ve been enjoying it.

    Have you checked our tutorial on coloring events by category? It isn’t exactly what you’re requesting, but it’s the most we’ve got documented on this end and so it may be of value to you. Check it out: Hopefully it can point you in the right direction.

    There is unfortunately no year view at this point; that’s an interesting request, though. Would it just be 12 different grids, each showing a specific month?

    Thank you for the reference and the reply. I’ll check it out. I know of other plugins that have something similar, but still no “background color” of the day cell.

    12 different grids, yes. Probably 2 or 3 rows depending on page content-area width. I’m sure everyone would have their own preference for showing a year view (Starting at Jan, starting at current month, or starting at next year). I’d love to learn how this can be achieved.

    Solid point, gstricklind. I can see the value in that view, yes – no guarantees but I’ve shared it with the team, and once we get through our current crop of views (we’ve got a slew of new ones we’re working on right now that are probably going to take our dev resources through the year’s end) we’ll be evaluating what to do next based on user feedback. Consider this on the list.

    Please let us know if you need anything else, or have other questions here. Otherwise thanks for using The Events Calendar.
