Hi Roel,

I'm back!  I just moved to a new hosting company and completely rebuilt the SERRA website and added the new calendar.  I LOVE the fact that you can now include photos - but can't find anywhere exactly HOW you do it?

I tired the "browse" to upload a photo (I presume?) but it comes in as an attachments, which is where?

Next step will be to move and update the infamous Scoop calendar.

Hi Charles,

I saw an option in the settings in the "Views" section "Show in month view:" a check box for images. I'm not sure if that is what you need to enable.

Hi,
first you need to upload (ftp) the image(s) in the /thumbnails folder.
Then use the path /thumbnails/filename.jpg in the description of the event.

In Admin-Panel you have to enable pictures in the month-view. that's it ;)

Hello

Just some extra information to Daric's post.

You don't have to specify a path - just use:    filename.jpg

The system expect the files to be in the thumbnail-folder.

The only problem with this method is user's have to have ftp access. I have seen other scripts that allow for uploading files. Those scripts also allow you to set which files can uploaded ie jpeg, png or gif. You can browse your computer to attach a file. It would be nice if users could do the same thing to add a picture to an event.

Dan and all others,

I will put on my To Do list: Adding an image upload feature to the Event Edit window for adding images directly to the description field. The uploaded image file will then be stored in the thumbnails folder.

Hi Roel,

biggrinthump_up It makes sense to still have them stored in the thumbnails folder.

Regards,
Dan

Agreed.  FTP access is not doable for some of the people using Roel's excellent calendar.

That would be great because now it's a little bit confusing.

And another idea:
As you can see, the image is way to big when hovering over it ...

Ok sure, everyone can manually resize the picture before uploading/attaching it.
But it would be very nice, when there will be an option in the Admin-Section like "Max. Picture Width" or something like that.

And btw. thank you for your great work !!!

I have changed the lines 249 and 275 in toolbox.js to "var maxBoxWidth = "200";" but the hover-picture shows now only with the width of 100px.
