Thanks Dedale,

The new release is rocking briefly tested out. I like the mouse over. and color, probably in admin it should be optional on what I posted here https://xoops.org/modules/news/article.php?storyid=6119

I get following on the calendar but I think it's minor stuff.

SSC Meeting
_APCAL_BEGIN: Oct 18th AM 10:00
_APCAL_END: Oct 18th PM 6:00


_APCAL_CLICKFORDETAILS


and noticed that when the calendar loads the details are displayed, shouldnt the case be that when you mouse over the details are displayed or maybe it should be chose at the module admin.

Great Job.

Re: APCal v.2.0.0 Beta - Calendar with Maps for Xoops 2.4/2.5

Hello btesec,

Thanks a lot for your reply.


Your first bug seems to be a language error. For now, the only available languages for the new things are English and French.

So if you're using another language, please feel free to translate them. these texts are located in the "main.php" file in the languages folder.

If you are using English or French langugage, check if the "main.php" file is in the languages folder and check if it contains the texts that are not showing properly.


For the color thing you describe on the news page, each color is related to a specific category. You can choose the color associated to each category in admin. So the color displayed on the calendar for an event is the color of the chosen main category.


For your last problem, I'm not sure to understand. The events details boxes are shown in your page while loading? Then they disappear? The behavior should be the popup shows up when your mouse is over an event, then it disappear when your mouse is out. It works perfectly on our sites, so if you want to give us your URL, we can check this out.

If you encounter other bugs, please don't hesitate to write them down here.

Kind Regards,
Dedale

Hi Dedale,

Thanks for the response. Would it be possible to change the blocks options from drop down list to a select/combo box, the idea is to be able to select preferred categories for display instead of displaying all categories or just a category at a time.
