Calendar 1.2.2 Beta Released

As promised in my post just a day or two ago, Calendar for WordPress 1.2.2 has now been released in beta. You can download it here.

In addition to the promised new features and bug fixes detailed in the last post, the following have also been squeezed in.

  • Corrected a couple of spelling mistakes in the default English language text
  • Fixed a Calendar admin panel issue where URLs would grow in length if certain options were chosen consecutively
  • Ensured that, should an error be thrown due to problematic user entry, the entered data would remain on screen for easy correction

As always, please be aware that this is beta software. It might have bugs or errors and using it on a live site would be unwise. If you are tech-savvy and wish to test this release then I would be most grateful for your feedback and bug reports in the comments on this post. If not then the non-beta full release will be made available when WordPress 2.8 comes out of beta which looks to be any day now.

As an aside, it seems fitting that a new version of Calendar is being released now as the total number of Calendar downloads has recently exceeded 30,000!

    My name’s Thomas…i’m a French Designer.

    I found your plugin “calendar” on the web and i try to use it for a website.
    I download it on your website from your post of May, 24, 2009.

    I think that i did all what it need to run.

    But when i paste the following text in my home code {CALENDAR}, i just see the text {CALENDAR} on my page. My WordPress version is the 2.7.1.

    You said in your file “Readme.txt”, that your plgin run for the 2.0 and that it was tested for to : 2.8.

    Have you got an idea about this trouble ?

    Thanks for your reply. Best regards. Thomas.

    it’s me again…I wrote you this morning about a problem in order to run your plugin calendar on my website.

    I resolve this last one.

    But i have an other question please…

    Calendar allow you to create somme groups by colors, i could understood.

    But when the calendar’s displaying on my website and i create an event before,
    the colors for the event is not the colors for the groups.

    That’s always the same colors for all the event. is it right or not ?

    I understood that Calendar allow you to make the difference for all kind of event with this color option.

    Thanks to your reply. Best regards.

    Hi Kieran,

    I had Calendar in the past but have come back too it. 2 things that I think would make this plugin just complete.

    1. Ability to Dbl Click calendar day to enter events

    2. Option for ‘every 2 weeks’ added in options

    Thomas, you need to activate categories on the calendar options page. After that you will see the events show in different colours.

    Jim, feature requests will be taken when I commence work on version 1.3. This is just an interim release to fix a few bugs and ensure compatibility with the forthcoming WordPress 2.8 release.

    Hi Kieran

    Great Calendar – so simple to install and use!

    One question though: how can I get the latest event popup in the sidebar widget to show over the other widgets below it in the sidebar when the mouse is hovered over it?

    Chris, firstly, I hope you are using the latest stable release and not the above beta as fixes have been provided in the stable version that you won’t have got with the beta 😉

    Secondly, I’m not seeing the behaviour you describe in the default install of Calendar. If you look at my development site you will see the pop-up goes over all items in the sidebar, irrespective of what widget they belong to. If this is not what you are seeing I would suggest it has something to do with the CSS of your theme.
