One of the features I see lacking in WordPress 1.5 “Strayhorn” definitely is a calendar for navigating.
I’m sure development versions would have include a calendar already. But since I’m using the “stable” release, its time for me to try out some hacks. When I created my own blog engine last year, this was one of the feature. The are countless of js or php calendars out there, so this surely would have been thought before, and others would have done a better job for WP.
Sidetracked, something cranky on Google Sg servers that I see messages like
Network Error (dns_unresolved_hostname)
Your requested host “www.google.com” could not be resolved by DNS.
For assistance, contact your network support team.
And I found a more update site (and neater looking) that uses this AJAX calendar called LiveCalendar. So I’ve decided to use this. Try it for yourself, you would be able to look at the calendar without refreshing the entire page. RPC calls to XML feeds (sort of like a webservice) integrated WordPress would show any blog posted on the date of the calendar.
Pretty cool technology right?
Sad it doesnt allows me to go forward in time, and no marking for the current date. If you want to install it without doing the manual plugin way, try WP Plugin-Manager for one-click install. Not bad after all.
And this page shows how to customise colours example on weekends using css mainly.
Try clicking back and forth the months on the calendar now on the right column.
