    Xibo Stage 2

    Starting to get there with my google cal display
    Listing calendar contents

    But I'd my display to alternate (say every 30 secs) between a region with the above in it and another one just showing the standard monthly view iframe.

    Can Xibo do this?

    [EDIT] Sussed out just to add a new element to the region and Xibo jsut sequences them - which is jsut what I want[/EDIT]

    I get the publisher message too. No content at all in chrome but error in IE

    Edit: I think it must be a google limitation as if I open in a new window it asks for google log on details

    Ah

    The machine I'm on is logged into the google account - I'll need to find a way around using the private cal feed using magic url wizardry

    @cromertech Once I get the code beyond pre-alpha - no problem

    Don't want to do that as may contain items that a school wouldn't want public(parents) to see, so need to use private feed
    or create a account for that PC on google..and keep it loged in.
    Worth trying but I think Xibo won't "see" the browser logged on setting - I'll try it though.

    I've had some success in creating a page similar to yours with a private shared url. I think you may have to use this and create a month view page with the same url. Maybe borrow some of the google code to make it a similar look. The API for the calendar has examples of this but I can't find an exact thing for what you want to do.

    Xibo does with Some websites - but not with all!

    I have Nagios setup which doesn't like it (easy to fix as just put user/pass in url string) but i have others (like helpdesk) which works!

    I've got a "magic cookie" iframe version working on a browser in another school and I'm not logged into the account

    http://www.st-leonards-pri.lancs.sch...l/monthly.html

    (Basically add in extra param
    Code:
    &pvttk=magic
    where magic = string from private XML feed.)

    so hopefully it'll work within Xibo when I go back in tomorrow

    I've come up with another layout prototype
    www.st-leonards-pri.lancs.sch.uk/calvert.php

    which looks to maybe be a better arrangement.

    And to let others start playing, I'm going to separate the formating/display code from the "get a cached feed and parse it to just extract the necessay info" so anyoone else can have play without having to decode my non-structured/non-oo/badly written php
