I think it would be useful to display (in mouseover popup window) the last user that change an event (including corresponding date/time)

best regards,

Hello Laurentiu,

This would require some additional fields in the events table of the database ("last editor", "last edit date and time")
I agree the information could be useful in certain calendars. We will give it a thought.

my wish list

I don't like the fact that once I click on event, it opens it in "view" mode and I need to click again to edit event

why won't you make it configurable feature? one might chose your way of click->view->edit and other the direct way of click->edit

To be honest, I agree with you.
I changed this because some users asked for it. But now that I have improved the size and buttons of the Edit Event window, after having given it a second thought, I don't see the advantage of this 2-step approach.
I can't just change it back because some users might complain, but I will see what I can do.

one more wish item:

when I delete event, it's still there and I need to close the window with one more click

why won't you do it configurable too, like the 2- phase edit event suggested above?

Hi, my personal comments ...

The "2 click" procedure gives you the possibility for an undo action or you could save it to a different day because the fields are still filled with the old values. I like it because I don't delete events so often.
The old approach immediately deleted an event without the possibility for undo.

I am not sure if I prefer the 1 or 2 click approach - Configurable is maybe a good idea.
The new view window is better readable than the edit window. I know it from older not so experienced computer users that they get confused easily.
If you have a calendar with a lot users only viewing events it is better I think.
For a calendar only being used by a few users who are allowed to edit events the "1 click" is a bit faster.

Regards, Alfred

my wish list -
the colors of the calendar don't work with our design - we would like to customize the colors so that it blends in with the rest of our web page. Is this possible?

Hi BlueOlive,
Yes, this can be easily done. All calendar colors are defined in the top part of the css/css.php file. So change lines 26 - 48 of the css.php file to match the rest of your webpage.
