Hello,

I have a problem with the "Add Event"-layout in the frontend. It is too wide for my template. I use Beez20. I've searched about my problem and I found similar problems but not really a good solution.

Jevents is a great component and this one thing only drives me to despair...

Hope for Help!

PS:
There is a screenshot where the arrows marker the overlap.

You have a few options:
1. Use the event editing in a popup window option
2. Use CSS to make the page elements smaller - I suspect your template is making some of your inputs too wide. e.g. I think the extra info text box is too wide so this CSS (added to your site's template.css file) should fix this:
Code: Select all
textarea#extra_info {
    width: 500px !important;
}

If it doesn't please use Firebug for Firefox or the Chrome inspector to investigate what is driving the width

Hi Geraint and the others,

thanks for your Answer. Now the extra info box is shorter, but I think it's the whole table which overlaps. You see in my screenshot the firebug result.

It seems to be the css in 'eventsadmin16.css':
div#jevents table.adminform {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
border: 1px solid #D5D5D5;
border-collapse: collapse;
margin: 8px 0 15px;
width: 100%;

But Changes in Width have no effect?! Another option: Do you know a good template without complications :)?

Use the popup event editor config option in JEvents.

i don't want to use the popup option. But I found a solution:

in eventsadmin16.css I changed the code:

Code: Select all
div#jevents input,div#jevents select,div#jevents inputbox {
   padding:3px 5px;
   max-width:200px!important;
   }

Now it looks good. Thank you for your help.

But theres is another problem:

The right column is fade out by using the "add event" link. The 'Add event' loads without the right column, but when I 'save' or 'cancel' it doesn't fade in but loads the Calendar-Site without right column. Where can I influence on that behaviour?
