Cosmic Titan (New Admin) 3/15/2005 4:46 PM EST : Calendar Changes

After seeing some non-guildportal calendars, I'd sure like to see some changes in ours.  First, the calendars I saw on some guild sites have boxes for each day and show text in the boxes.  They also allow for non-event text to be scheduled.

Right now, if I want to add anything to our calendar, it must be an event.  Maybe I just want to list a birthday of a member or some other text.  Also, since we only have numbers with an asterisk to indicate something on that day, members have to click on the day to see the text.  Larger calendars with a box for each day allow members to quickly glance over the calendar and find information.

The older cal does have a box for each day that siaplays the text of events and if you scroll down to the bottom of the page the next event and all its details are listed.

Yes, but the old calendar is bugged.  It doesn't display the time properly for the time zones.  We had been using it on my website, until this was brought to my attention.  Switched to the Enhanced and it fixed it.

I agree with the Original Poster.  The one thing I hear over and over from the Members, the casual users who don't know all the workings of the site, is that the calendar is subpar and they don't understand why I won't leave Guildportal for something better.  (They don't realize there IS nothing better, with or without a crappy calendar    )

I tried adding the old calendar to the same page as the new one, planning to use both.  As you said, however, the times are bugged so I quickly removed it to avoid confusion.  Sigh...

Any way we could get the times fixed on the old calendar so we could use it?

I really prefer the setup of the old calendar.  However, since we DO have a Calendar that works, even if it's not the way we like it, it's probably not a priority.  I'm pretty sure Aaron has a ton of stuff he's working on and while I'd definitely love this done, I'm not sure it should be at the top of the list.
