confused   Beginner(?) help

I've installed the WP-plugin and it doesn't seem to work at all crying

Please see http://jagtguiderne.dk/wordpress/kurser/testkalender/

The calender doesn't show any entries, dates, arrows and so on. And what is showing at the bottom - a lot og white squares/lines?
If I click on week or month the style seems to go bananas. I don't even want my visitors to be able to change, so I've unchecked it in "options", but they are still there.

And in the widget, I'm unable to change the style at all. I don't want it to be orange and white.

Hope for some help and thanks in advance :)

Re: Beginner(?) help
Whew - OK, let's see.. a couple of things...

First, the mini nav-cal on the right seems to be working fine, which is good news. The colors for that are currently fixed at orange and white in the WP plugin only (if you create the HTML for this widget on our site, you can customize it more). We have that on our to-do list : support mini-cal customizations for WP users.

On to your main calendar issues:

We are having a lot of issues with WP themes that make global CSS modifications that mess up how the calendar looks. We are trying to create a nice CSS reset just for the localendar piece that prevents the kind of problems you are seeing. So examples like yours are a big help. Refresh your page shortly and you will hopefully see some improvements.

It is also tricky for a wordpress theme (or any site) to display all of the calendar views correctly. That is why we offer a bunch of different ways to publish your calendar (interactive, non-interactive, iframe, etc). In the case of your calendar, it might make sense to display a non-interactive "Today+Happening soon" view, which will hide the Day/Week/Month options (if the other views don't fit into the column space provided)

Anyway, thanks to your example we have cleaned up a few things (and will likely make some additional changes). Have a look.

Re: Beginner(?) help
One other note:

Your WP theme is setting overflow:hidden for the widget (style.css line 77)
This means that the pop-up event balloons will be clipped (try advancing the calendar to other months and clicking highlighted dates)

I would recommend setting overflow to 'visible' or 'auto' to have this display correctly.
