Advancing the Month Display

Post subject:  Advancing the Month Display

If you've used CPGNuCalendar much, you know that to move the month view forward (or backward) 1 month, you just need to click on the month names above the small month display to the right (or left) of the main month. But if you aren't privy to that like many of your site's visitors, you'll probably click on the >> symbols around the year, and jump forward/backward a whole year!

So try adding this small change, to include < and > symbols around the month name, plus while we're at it, add a "tool tip" to the year display to explain that it will let you see an entire year.

In /modules/CPGNuCalendar.php find around line 374

PHP:
		printf ( "%s", month_name ( $thismonth - 1 ) );
if ($thisyear-1 >= $cal_config['start_year'])
echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$thismonth&year=".($thisyear-1)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth-1)." ".($thisyear-1)."\">&lt;&lt;</a>";
echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=year&year=$thisyear") . "\">$thisyear</a>";
echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$thismonth&year=".($thisyear+1)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth-1)." ".($thisyear+1)."\">&gt;&gt;</a>";


and replace with

Code:
		echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$prevmonth&year=".($thisyear)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth-2)." ".($thisyear)."\">&lt;</a> ";
		printf ( "%s", month_name ( $thismonth - 1 ) );
		echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$nextmonth&year=".($thisyear)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth)." ".($thisyear)."\">&gt;</a> ";
		if ($thisyear-1 >= $cal_config['start_year'])
			echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$thismonth&year=".($thisyear-1)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth-1)." ".($thisyear-1)."\">&lt;&lt;</a>";
		echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=year&year=$thisyear") . "\" title=\"". _CALALLYEAR."\">$thisyear</a>";
		echo " <a href=\"".getlink($module_name . "&view=month&month=$thismonth&year=".($thisyear+1)) . "\" title=\"". month_name($thismonth-1)." ".($thisyear+1)."\">&gt;&gt;</a>";


Also add the following line to the end of file /language/english/cpgnucalendar.php

PHP:
define("_CALALLYEAR", "View Whole Year");

Well done, the year thing made sense to me after the first time I clicked on it, but only after. I noticed a lot of people seem to treat this as a bug. I believe it is the design, but many people find it confusing.

Thanks again for this - I upgraded cpgnucalendar to 2.0.6 which overwrote these edits. Have just remembered and found this post..

For version 2.0.6 of CPGnuCalendar, you would make the edit to file index.php, at around line 389.

Is the "replace with" code supposed to be missing in the original post?

Obviously not!

It's a stupid DF bug, you see it on DF.org too. Upgrade from SQL4 to 5 and some PHP /PHP code no longer displays. I'd fix it if the fix was ever published where I could find it!

Changed to code /code so you can at least read it.

Just done this again for the latest version. Text to be replaced was around line 439 but the language edit is now in modules/CPGNuCalendar/l10n rather than the language folder. Thanks again!
