Separation lines have disappeared
The vertical and horizontal lines that separate one day from another in the month view have disappeared from Localendar. Also the lines separating the vertical 'week' entry on the monthly calendar are gone.

Does not seem to make a difference if a fully interactive embedded calender or a responsive iframe calendar. Also no difference if publish on my website, or on Localendar's.

Any idea what the problem might be?

Re: Separation lines have disappeared
This is actually intentional.. there were some design changes made to the calendar that were supposed to remove the lines in favor of letting the background color show through.

If you want the "lines" back, all you have to do is set a light gray bg color - or any color for that matter (under Options->Colors) and you will see the "separation"

At some point in the past, we switched new members from having a light gray bg as the default to the calendar being "white", so when we corrected this issue, anyone with a white bg suddenly had the lines "disappear". As to whether or not we continue to make the color for new users be white or gray.. we are still discussing it.

We could have automatically changed all the white bg colors for members to gray, but then we would have a lot of "What happened to my white bg??" posts smile

Re: Separation lines have disappeared
Marc:

I did as you suggested, but I have never, to my knowledge, had a Localendar that looks like this one. My background color has always been white.

Go to: www.ottawapark.org/reference/images/LocalendarLineColors.jpg

The upper screenshot, marked 'Now', is what I get when I change the background color to gray.

The middle screenshot, marked 'Mar, 11,2016', is what my screen looked like on that date. Note the white background, and the double gray lines separating the days, as well as around the directional arrows, week, etc.

Now look at the lower screenshot, marked 'Feb. 27, 2016'. Again the background is white, but there are single gray lines separating the days, and week, but NO lines around the directional arrows. I did not go back any farther to see what other changes you have been silently making regarding this subject.

So rather than changing the BACKGROUND color, is there a way that I can just change the LINE color? I want everything to be white except for the actual lines.

Re: Separation lines have disappeared
You now have what was the correct design.
If you look at Feb 27, there are boxes around the "week" section that should not be there. Mar 11 extremely incorrect. "Now" has the "borders" the background showing through, which was the intention.

There is not a way to change the line color at this time. We might include lines for just the white background, but they would still be removed once a background color is selected.

Then it has not been correct for a long time. I did not include a screen shot from Jan 30, 2015, which is the same as the Feb. 27, 2016 one, except the word 'week' is centered.

If I could have lines for a white background that would be great. I much prefer the white background. I think it makes the calendar easier to read, plus if one has a lot of custom categories, it is hard to pick a background color that significantly contrasts with all of the category colors.

Re: Separation lines have disappeared
Heated internal debate on the lines continues!

(and I know what you mean about "for a long time", but there are so many calendar variations, browser CSS defaults, etc, that the issue of "timing" has many meanings across different members)

But for now.. we are trying an experiment to put separation lines back on the 2 month-block style views when the background color has been set to white (ffffff)

Let us know what you think!

That is fine. Thanks for being so prompt and accommodating biggrin

Just curious--why with the separation lines is the word 'week' placed at the top of its column, whereas with a colored background (and at various times in the past with a white background) it was in the center of its column?

Re: Separation lines have disappeared
There is still some tweaking to do.. but with Weebly about to do some major promotional stuff for localendar (yay!), it was decided to put the separation lines changes out sooner rather than later.

You might also notice that the white bg calendar has tighter "outside" margins than one with a colored or image bg.

I appreciate the sooner action on the lines. As I said, the 'week' format was more of a question.
And I certainly hope the ads bring you guys more business!

Yes I did. Which I think was a wonderful addition.
