JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Repeat Options are confusing

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

I don't know about everyone else, but I find the repeat options a bit confusing, especially the By Day section. Right now you get:

[] S [] M [] T [] W [] T [] F [] S
[] week 1 [] week 2 [] week 3 [] week 4 [] week 5

First, it'd be nice if the day names were a bit better "Sa" "Su" and "Tu" and "Th" already make it a bit more readable to me, but that's not the main thing. I always get confused whether the checkbox is before or after the letter. To help, first you really should use <label> tags. This way I could click on the letter "W" and it would check the box. Right now clicking on "W" does nothing because it's just text. In the unlikely event you've never worked with the label tag you basically do:

<input type="checkbox" id="Sunday" ...><label for="Sunday">Sunday</label>
Now clicking on "Sunday" would check the box.

Finally though, why not put it on multiple lines:
[] Sunday
[] Monday
[] Tuesday
[] Wednesday
[] Thursday
[] Friday
[] Saturday

[] Week 1
[] Week 2
[] Week 3
[] Week 4
[] Week 5

That is much more readable to me.

Just an idea!

The days and weeks are in labels - if you click the text the checkbox changes. Some of the options are not (I'll fix this)

I agree its could be a bit confusing but a separate line for each item would take a lot of space - perhaps alternating background shading may help without eating up valuable screen space.
