Blog Calendar is component + module for Joomla. The module let you choose a date to get all post published on that date and the component give the layout to show the posts.
-Choose articles from all categories or choose the categories to work with.
-Show author name or username.
-You can select if you want to show fulltext, introtext or cut the text in a specified number of words followed by "read more" (when cut the text you can also choose if you want to clean xhtml tags or not).
-The rest of options are all you can find for a joomla's article and you can choose your own settings for the component or use global configuration from your joomla site.
It is clearly buggy, but this is not the worst problem. The worse is that the website linked for this extension is an spanish cooking blog or something similar, that has nothing to see with the extension, and there is no support forum or any manner to contact the author to report the bug through it.
I used jSeblod CCK to create a blog content type + Jcomments (or other).
My only complaint so far is the CSS built by the component, but I don't think it's the author's fault.
e.g. I want to edit the date displayed in the H3 tag within td.contentheading -- as I don't want the date above each article in the component area.
Additionally, it seems redundant as the module has a parameter for 'Show Created Date'.
1) I can't change the month.
2) I tried to enter two category-IDs, but it takes only one. I tried in different ways (no blank after comma, blank after comma).
For me it seems, there are mistakes in the code.
You would try the new version. Categories selection in module is working now as expected.
About changing the month....I'm not sure what you mean. If you want to change the month name/format you have to look in joomla default language file of your language pack, Blog Calendar uses it to take month names and date format.
Contents plugins are for com_content, so if you are in com_blog_calendar page the don't work. I've been trying to load content plugins in com_blog_calendar but not success right now. I will continue trying.
I would have a question: how can be solved, that let the calendar not display it based on the time of the making articles (created), but according to the end of the publication (publish_down)?
Currently the articles are displayed based on created_date only if publish_upnow.
Do you want to display articles by publish_up date?? I think is good, maybe in next version I can check if created_date!=publish_up and if so....display based on publish_up date. Thanks for the suggestion.
After running it through xenu I found the module was producing thousands of useless urls (the server slowed to a snails pace whilst xenu ran the link request) nearly 3000!
I'm not sure if it was a problem mixing with superblogger as the result was the same with superblogger turned off, but there's something on my site it disagrees with.
