Calendar View (Display)

Modified on Thu, 16 Jul 2020 at 02:06 PM

There are two display views you can use for the Ploud Calendar. This does not include the LocalHop calendar.

The Ploud default view for a calendar is to use dots when an event exists for a specific day. These dots come in various colors to denote a type of Event. 

The second display option instead of colored dots uses a text description that includes a time and short description that can be be expanded on by clicking on it

You can easily change this calendar view back and forth by changing it's display type. Here is how to make that change.

1.) Log into the site

2.) Go to the calendar location on your Ploud site. 

3.)  Once you are on the calendar page Select Display from the green edit bar and from the menu at the bottom select the Default Calendar view option or Calendar V2 View

Once you select a view the calendar will change and display the new view selected there is no other action required. The image below shows the Calendar V2 view

Note: in order for this calendar view to display with no overlapping over a portlet column you can only use one portlet column. This can be accomplished by blocking the parent portlets for that page. 

1.) Go to your page containing the calendar

2.) Click "Manage Portlets"  found at the bottom of the center content area.

3.) On either the left or right portlet columns select on the dropdown for the Parent column setting "block"

4.) Click "Save" to complete the change
