I have made some improvements to the Longears Mall Calendar that I think you will like!
First I would like to thank you for the many calendar entries that are coming in to email@example.com. It is truly exciting to see so many events taking place. If any of you have events that are taking place outside of the United States I will be excited to add those as well -- perhaps in another color so they stand out! It is always neat to see what is happening around the world with "longears"! It also gives us a good reason to plan trips to our neighboring countries. I just loved the donkey trekking site in France that I discovered July 19.
It's kind of hard to read isn't it!
And as I add more entries it gets even harder to distinguish between one and the next. That's certainly not what we want.
Today I decided that something had to be done, and so I spent some time studying the calendar configuration and program code. I decided to do two things:
1. Color-code the various entries by "shows", "clinics" and "rides". I have more unused colors reserved for future categories, such as "non-USA", as well.
2. Add some white-space around each entry to make it easier to read.
Here is the result:
How do you like it?
I really appreciate your comments here as well as all the excellent emails you send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep them coming, and I'll keep working hard for you!
