    Get a 2 week timetable into Outlook/Google Calendar etc

    Folks,

    I've just finished (well, it seems to work anyway) a little site that allows a teacher or a student to type in their timetable and get back a csv file of all their lessons for the year so they can import it into Outlook, Google calendar or whatever. It's something I end up fudging every year in Excel so I thought I'd have a proper go at it as I've been learning PHP, MySQL and Javascript.

    It's pretty easy to break at the moment, but if I spend too much more time on it this week I'll be in trouble with 'er indoors.

    If you use it, please let me know if you find any bugs or problems, and feel free to tell staff and students at your school if you think they might want to use it. The address is www.timetableconverter.site40.net

    Oh, and if anyone can see why the jquery corners aren't being applied to the footer div I would love to know!

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Hi,

    Nothing happens when you click on 'Step 1' it just takes you to the top of the home page.

    Works fine for me in FF3, mind you when you click on Step1 whilst it does drag you back to the top, it expands the menu.

    Looks clever indeed.

    Thanks for all your comments guys. Good old IE7 eh? I made the mistake of assuming it was fine since it looked ok.

    I'll do some playing later on and let you know how I get on.

    Hmm...

    In trying to fix the IE problem I seem to have messed up the basic functionality.

    I'll let you know when I think it's solved! Until then, it may not be the best idea to pass on the link...

    Really wouldn't advise root connections to sql on a public facing site.

    Actually, on checking the connection script I'm not using root, just the username supplied by the hosting firm. I don't seem to have priviledges to create new users or databases either, so I think it's just the way they handle MYSQL.
