Ocal_XH

Post by cmb » Sat Aug 09, 2014 5:07 pm

Hello Community,

I have just released Ocal_XH 1.0alpha1.
Ocal_XH facilitates to present calendars on your website which display the occupancy of a certain location or other rental, so visitors can easily see whether the item is available on a certain date or interval. Each calendar is only meant for a single rental; however, you can display multiple calendars on a single page.

The plugin does neither provide any actual booking facilities (however, you may be able to combine it with a mail form like Advancedform_XH), nor can it be used as an event calendar, such as Calendar.
The plugin is meant as a remake of occcal by CMSimple-Styles.com. Besides removing to Cs and appending an _XH the main difference is that it doesn't require JavaScript to see the occupancy calendars. However, it still does require CSS--maybe somebody has a good idea on how to improve this.

Other than that this first alpha version only supports a subset of the features of occcal resp. OccCalendar. What do you think is most missing?

Any feedback is welcome.

Enjoy,
Christoph

Hello Community,

I have just released Ocal_XH 1.0beta1.

I have fixed a CSRF vulnerability, so updating is strongly recommended.

Furthermore the plugin now stores all its data in content/ocal/ and never in language specific subfolders, what was formerly the case for second languages of multilingual websites. You may have to move already existing *.dat files. In addition I have added a list view that can be switched to by visitors; this should solve the CSS issue mentioned above, and makes the occupancy information accessible.

Besides this I made several minor improvements. Thanks to rothom and Termin for their suggestions.

Enjoy,
Christoph

Hello Community,

I have just released Ocal_XH 1.0beta2.

I have added an hourly occupancy mode (thanks to hixi for the suggestion).

Enjoy,
Christoph

PS: What do you think about this hourly mode's "pagination"? Do you think it is reasonable to use this for the daily mode, too?

Hi Chris, I'd like to use your plugin Ocal
It may be modified to display the clock for example 10, 12, 14, 16 etc.
Thank you Josef

Discussing the thing with Josef, it is that he would need to have a day in the calendar split in longer steps. E.g. 2 hours (now it is 1hour). This could be even included in the config as an option.

It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

Please try (in a test environment) whether changing a single line might already be sufficient:

Code: Select all

for ($i = $pcf['hour_first']; $i <= $pcf['hour_last']; $i += 2) {

Yes, good idea.

Thank you Chris, but your solution works only at 50%. The administration mark all the items, but the frontend displays marked only the first three lines, see pictures.
