Have you tried changing the widht of the layout? If you use a Club layout a new tab will appear in the configuration area that will let you have a narrower calendar that will probably fit better on your site.

Did you fix this - it looks perfect to me in Firefox 6, Chrome and MSIE 9x64

Hi
I am also getting a strange looking Events - Month layout after the upgrade

I am using Geraint but have tried the others, default, Alternative, ext.

The columns are not the same sizes with the center on twice as wide as outside ones

Joomla 1.5.23
This is on Firefox and chrome

Cheers

The problem is the title of your event 3-8 September "Dalian Int'l Fashion Festival 2011" the ' is a non-asci character and there is a glitch in the way this title is then truncated on each day it appears which makes the title longer and longer

I will fix this in version 2.0.4 of Jevents - in the meantime you can fix your version of the code. Edit the file components/com_jevents/views/geraint/month/tmpl/calendar_cell.php and fine line 83 which currently says:
Code: Select all
$this->event->_title = $tmpTitle;
replace this with
Code: Select all
      if (!isset($this->event->truncatedtitle)){
         $this->event->_title = $tmpTitle;
         $this->event->truncatedtitle = true;
      }
and you problem should go away

you are right the problem has gone away

This is not important to me at the moment BUT

I added the lines and noticed that another error showed

I am adding a screen pic as this is from the live site

you will see the Title is Hotel Nikko's when it should be Hotel Nikko's

could be just a small problem as other titles with an 'S are OK

That is a problem with the old 'overlib' tooltips. You should change the tooltip type to 'joomla'

I found the problem - its all to do with truncated titles where the length of the truncation matches a 'special character'.

Version 2.0.4 of Jevents will fix this.
