Calendar - First 5 Videos - Creating a Calendar, Customizing the Calendar Settings, Displaying Event Details in a Colorbox Popup | Modules Unraveled
Free! Introduction to the Calendar Series
In this series, we're going to take a look at the popular Calendar module. We'll start out by creating a content type for events, and then create a calendar view from a template. We'll customize that View by changing the way the event date is displayed and by shortening the URLs for calendar pages. We'll also configure Colorobox to display event details in a modal popup when an event is clicked, instead of taking the visitor directly to the event's node page. Then, we'll color code our events based on Taxonomy.
