I'm using Jevents 2.2.8 on a church website. I have the main view set to monthly. When there are more than two events for a day, the calendar cell length expands, causing the whole view to look odd. Is there a way to make it use scroll bars within each cell, instead? Since we are a church, Sundays and Wednesdays can have as many as 10 to 15 events for one day.

I am using the Geraint layout. Would changing the template make any difference? Also, we will probably be purchasing a silver membership if I can get permission for the expense. Would the club layouts fix the problem?

Yes it is possible..

1. Try wrapping the custom field text in a div like:

Code: Select all
<div style="height:120px;width:120px;border:1px solid #ccc;font:16px/26px Georgia, Garamond, Serif;overflow:auto;"> Customfield text/string </div>

2. Template override which you should find: ... jevents-15

Thanks for your reply, Tonyp. Unfortunately, I have been trying for hours to figure out how to apply your suggestion, and I'm totally lost!

I am using the Geraint view for the calendar component. Can someone please tell me which file I am supposed to be editing, and which part of that file? I have looked through what seems like every template file in the components_jevents listing, and cannot figure out what to change.

The point is that you will need a template override of the monthly view to get into this. This document might be of help: ... jevents-15

The code Tony pointed, is a first approach that you can try in your override to get the scroll bar into each cell.
