[Pro] Scripty Accordian for a "calendar"

I have a client whose site requires a calendar, sort of. This is a tribute band that wants to have some kind of day/date format (the guy in charge said “calendar”…) for future events and performances. Trouble is, all the calendars that I see that will do this (save for PHP/ASP/CFM driven database models, which I do not at this time want to kill brain cells over) are clunky and unattractive, so far as I can tell, including the (nonfunctional) number they have on their existing web site. I was thinking that I could use the Scripty Accordian Action for a 3 or 4 month events "calendar’, with each month on a separate tab, that would open when moused over or clicked on, and would display performance dates or other info. Does this sound like something that would work for my purposes? Or, maybe someone else has a better idea.

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Rick

Did you have a look at http://www.calendars.net/ The nice thing about this is that its FREE. I’m using it on my site http://brutontown.co.uk/community/diary.html - It may help you.

Regards

Thanks for this. On one hand, I don’t like the idea of ads, as I don’t think they look very good. On the other hand - I know, a calendar is a calendar. I found one that I like, but it’s run on cold fusion, and not available to me. I got to thinking that I could just build a perpetual calendar as a table, but that would only give me one month, realistically, due to page size - and it would still look clunky.
By that I mean you have to squeeze all the relevant information in this tiny little space, which is my problem with iCal on my Mac.

One other thought I had was, what if I did this in WebYep, as an editable table, again, as a perp calendar? That way the client could edit it, month to month. Maybe I could do it as a bigger, pop-up window, rather than trying to fit a square calendar box inside the browser window that I’m designing for. Thoughts, anyone?

Here’s a stupid Unix trick for you:

Open Terminal.app from your Utilities folder, and type the word cal
followed by a return. Presto, instance calendar for the month.

This is only going to lay out the way it does in Terminal if you use a
monospaced font in your document, and if you wrap it in a set of


tags. So definitely one to break out the Crowbar Action for. Type

, then paste in the calendar from cal, then type another 

to close the tag.

If you are doing this as an inline element and you use a Markup Item
instead of Crowbar, you will have invalid code, because P cannot
contain PRE.

If you place a Markup Item on your page as a floating DIV, then you
can use that method instead of Crowbar.

Wow. You amaze me, Walt. Funny, though - as soon as I opened Terminal the G5 went to hyper-fans, the dreaded wind tunnel syndrome. Not sure what to make of that.

I’m going to try this just to do it - but I’m not sure how I’d add the additional detail I need, as in where, what time, etc.

By the way, here’s the markup layout for the proposed site:

That’s pretty amazing. I skipped the G5 and went from a creaky old G4
to the very latest 8-core Intel about a year and a half ago. Your
system might have decided, if this was your first time in Terminal, to
run all the various housekeeping shell scripts that it runs on
occasion. The one that might cause all of your processors to go
unghhhh! would be the update to the locate database. That touches
every single file on your computer. And there’s tens of thousands of
those that you never see, buried in the guts of Unix.

I played around with Terminal not too long ago, trying something (can’t remember what) that didn’t work, so I haven’t been in it in a while. It was real strange to hear that, especially with no increase in CPU temps, which is what usually causes that to happen. Your explanation makes sense.

The G5 is an interim machine until used Mac Pros come down. This winter, it was very warm and toasty in my office anytime it was on! This summer, without AC, will be interesting.
