NightCal Fix

Posted by Michael Morris on October 9, 2005 21:25:17 UTC

We've just had a look at the first external website to reproduce one our our calendars and realised that NightCal is missing

something. Apart from the link to NightCal website, there is no way for people browsing a website where a calendar is

reproduced to know how to interpret the NightCal output. This is an oversight on our part.

As a fix we've have produced a long thin legend in the form of a Gif file that can be placed underneath or above one of the

calendars on a website. Please could users have a look at it and tell us what you think. If it gets the thumbs up, we'll include it

in the download and amend the help files and website to draw users attention to it. You can download a copy of this Gif file (15

kB) from the Nightcal website at www.nightcal.co.uk.

As a longer term solution, we'll see if it's practical to have a user option to automatically produce such a key when saving or

printing calenders.

PLEASE GET BACK TO US AT NIGHTCAL@HOTMAIL.CO.UK TO TELL US WHETHER THIS ADEQUATELY ADDRESSES

THE PROBLEM SO THAT WE CAN INCLUDE IT IN FUTURE ZIP FILES.

Thanks

Michael Morris
