For advanced users with specific requirements only
Do you care about the html that a plugin generates? Some don’t as long as it works, and that’s okay – you can skip this…..
Do the default list types offered suit your requirements ? yes … good ! you too can skip this…..
The events plugins allow you to choose the html generated for the event lists. This affects the html and a little bit the logic (eg: the box calendar option will show empty days of course.). The same ids and classes are used, same content generated etc. The html styles do NOT control what fields appear where – that is up to the rest of the list type settings.
If you do decide to customise a list type and /or change the html style, please consider whether
- you want the events grouped or not – some work better with groupings than others – try it out and see
- you need some css to make it look good. See custom css.
- you need to change the field order, or which ‘column’ the field is in to make it look good.
If you use firefox with firebug, or chrome, you’ll know how to inspect the html elements to see the structure developed. Here is a quick overview of some of the html style options that the plugin offers:
