Okay heres how it is ... installed the Calender and it works great ..
in fact if I go to http://www.peytonexplorers.net/calendar/ I couldn't be wanting for anything ..
but, I've intergrated it with my php site using the blocks and modules on these forums and yep there in .. http://www.peytonexplorers.net .. theres on nice neet boxes around the numbers and no highlightling of the dates with events. Then when I click on the calendar and it goes to the calendar module again in just doesn't look right. I don't realy want the details of the events in next to the date numbers.
So the question is.. how can I get it looking like is does if I go to the first link, but in that neet little module.
Just to let you all know I'm new to phpnuke but I'm learning fast. So if anyone can give me ahand here I'd be really greatful.
BTW the website is work inprogress .. I've just trying to get the layout sorted first before the content.

You're missing the CSS code... This post (http://www.easyphpcalendar.com/forums/showpost.php?p=11654&postcount=9) should help you resolve this.

I've tried that and it's still not looking right .. :( .. any more handy hints?

Well those are the exact steps required to make it work. I don't know which version of PHP-Nuke you're running but either way, you're missing the files that were outlined in that post.
You'll need to create /includes/custom_files/custom_head.php by following step 4b.
If you still can't get it working, you can send me your FTP server information (IP/hostname, username and password) using the link in my signature.

Well first off I've been reading your forums and I'd like to say you give by far the best support I've ever seen. I've been able to solve most of my problems with them.
However one is bugging me.
Calendar version: 6.3.21
PHPNuke version: 7.8
URLS: http:www.thehowardfamily.info (http://www.thehowardfamily.info)
I've been able to install and integrate, and everything is working fine except when I go to demo.php and mouseOver I get different colors on the popup then I do on the block and module. This happens with Firefox, and Explorer. I would assume this is a CSS issue, since no matter what changes I make in the calendar admin panel the color doesn't change on the block. The PopUp colors do work when I click on the event however.
I did see another post about this I think, and it had to do with some JS script I think. Any help would be appriciated. Thank you!

I'm assuming your talking about the background color?
The way the calendar is integrated into your page, it isn't passing the calendar variables to the $OL=1 code properly.

Yes I was referring to the background. I tried adding the extra script to my Block-Calendar.php, which is where I assume it is supposed to go. But the whole block disappeared. I tried a number of ways. Haven't made any improvments. I'll keep chugging away.
I also have a different issue now. Does anyone have experience with the calendar block not allowing content in other blocks if it is above them. I'm trying to move my calendar block to the top right position, but if I do it breaks all the other blocks below it on the right side.

Usually, the reason why it kills any blocks after itself is because the calendar table is installed in a separate database. I had explained exactly what happens in an other post, I'll try to dig it up for you. But the quick answer is to move your calendar table to the same database as your PHP-Nuke.
Odly enough though, is that you already do have a block currently under the calendar and it seems to be fine. Are you still having the problem you described?

I found a problem with your pages though... You have two </head> tags... This might cause you some problems.
I'm still looking...

As for doing what Brian had suggested, since you're going to be pasting HTML in a PHP file, you have to escape the HTML text..
So where you have your $OL=1; require("calendar/calendar.php"); line, replace it with the following
<div id="overDiv" style="position:absolute; visibility:hidden; z-index:1000;"></div>
If you need help, you can contact me using the link in my signature.

Awesome! You were right on with both problems. I moved the tables to the other database, which were only seperated for testing purposes anyway. Fixed it!
Also add that code snippet fixed my mouseover issue. Thank you very much!
Now I have one more very easy question. When I purchase the software do I get a license that I can just enter, or do I need to reinstall?
It sounds like I'd need to reinstall according to this. * One license is required per domain name on which the calendar script is used. The license is partially based on the domain name and IP address where the calendar is installed when the Setup Manager is initially executed.
Thanks again for everything, you guys are great!

After purchase, you'll get an order number that you can enter into your current installation which will make it a full-licensed version. All of your data and changes will stay the way they were. No re-installation is required. :)
