Symbols in Calendar?



  • Hello
    I have Google ical, and amongst other entries I have a repeated weekly event entered, how can I use a symbol for that repeated event? and if possible to have it a color? Where will I find a list of what symbols are available to use?
    Thank you.



  • @Damian default calendar module is not able to do that. With MMM-CalendarExt, you can control most of your wish.
    For special events, you can set style by event name or description or location.



  • @Damian with default calendar, you can also do that by making another ical with your special events.

    Thanks. How can I make special events in iCal with default calendar?

    MMM-CalendarExt, you can control most of your wish.
    For special events, you can set style by event name or description or location.

    If I swapped out default calendar to MMM-CalendarExt, will I still have same layout and use my iCal as it is now? as well as being able to set style as I wanted?
    I have this at prsnt

  • Thanks. How can I make special events in iCal with default calendar?

    You might have already a few calendars in Google Calendar(if you use, or any other calendar like OSX Calendar or Office Calendar…). they might be home, work,…
    Like them, you can make a new calendar for your special events like My Families birthdays or Fitness schedule or any others.
    Then you can add it in default Calendar module.

    In default calendar module, you can set the color and symbol of events per calendar. So you should separate calendars for the different styles.

    If I swapped out default calendar to MMM-CalendarExt, will I still have same layout and use my iCal as it is now? as well as being able to set style as I wanted?

    It depends on what you need. Yes, you can do it. but if you want to really the same look with default calendar, you should adjust css for it by yourself. The default css and looks of MMM-CalendarExt are somewhat different with those of the default.
    Functionally, MMM-CalendarExt could be more than the default. But, the configuration of MMM-CalendarExt is more complex than the default. I’m sorry for that.
    First, you should read the manual with careful. And always, the decision is yours. :)
