    ADDISON BERRY: So of course, one of the big requirements on our site
  • 0:12
    is that we actually have a calendar display for people to use,
  • 0:16
    in addition to iCal downloads available for the calendar.

    So we need to go ahead and get the calendar module enabled
  • 0:24
    and start playing around with it.

    In this lesson, we're going to look at the default view the calendar

    module provides, and we're going to clone it.

Hands-On: Calendar View


We have our Upcoming Events block, but now we need to build out our full calendar. Although this is potentially a daunting task, involving many tables and many variations for the display (week, month, etc.), the Calendar module conveniently comes with a default view that handles most of the difficult bits for us. In this lesson we'll clone the Calendar default view to give us a good starting place, and alter the view to suit our needs.
