Calendar 1.3.4 Released

After over two years of no updates to my calendar plugin for WordPress I’ve pushed out a change tonight. Even two years ago fixes had, for some time, been purely tweaks based on bug reports. While this latest change is not to be described as a significant update, it does more to the code than just playing around at the sidelines.

As with most code that is released to the community and then largely forgotten about save for the odd tweak, times change and what is accepted practice moves on. This is exactly what has happened with Calendar and it was high time to look at how it performed with the latest version of WordPress, review the latest best practice of the plugin repository and push out fixes to a few bugs that had been rumbling along in the support forums without fixes for too long.

I hope this release will be welcome for long term users of the plugin and for those who’ve never used it, a release after so long will push it back into the visible sections of the plugin repository so why not check it out?

    Hi there,

    I was about to test your calendar plugin into a wordpress site (from wordpress org) when i’ve realised that nothing tells me what I have to do to place a calendar into a page – no shortcode or automatic page created anything like that?

    Is there something going wrong or did I miss something?

    Can you help eventually cause I didn’t see anything like that in the forum (so I feel lonely ;-)))

    Regards
    Thank you
    Corinne

    Hi
    I really love your calendar but the only thing is the link you put under it and I am wondering if I can remove it. I understand the value of the programmer because I am kind of but unfortunately people don’t like to have many advertises in their site.
    Would you please show me the way to remove it.
    Thanks
    Roxana

    Love the calendar – very organized and easy to follow. One request, please show the name of band when “Live Music” is the entertainment after the fish fry. Thank you.

    I have updated the calendar to the latest release for word press (1.3.5). A couple of questions:

    !) is the a way I can have the event link appear in a new window vs the same window that the calendar is on.
    2) Does the recurrence months day option mean that (for example) the event will reoccur the 2nd thursday of each month?
    3) is there an option to have calendar items appear as a scrolling list on other pages in the site or would that be a separate plugin….if any recommendations?

    Thanks

    @Corinne – the short code is {CALENDAR} on a page

    @Roxana – on the calendar options page in the admin panel, set “enable attribution link” to “No”

    @Helen – take this up with whichever website you saw the calendar on; I just write the software

    @kris – answers to your questions as follows
    1) Not possible without code changes, sorry
    2) Yes, that’s what it means
    3) No, that’s not possible, nor am I aware of any plugins that will do this. What you can do is add the upcoming events widget to another page, add the tag {UPCOMING_EVENTS} at some point on the page and ensure the option is enabled on the calendar options page
