IBS FullCalendar To WordPress

Just submitted IBS FullCalendar to WordPress for review and publication. Having written several plugins for my own use the IBS FullCalendar is the first I’ve been motivated to publish.

There are several WordPress calendar related plugins and some even use the jQuery FullCalendar code too. But mostly they implement the older versions while the version 2.0 is a greatly improved product. And a few also display Google Calendar feeds to some extent.

I tried to use the “kiss” principle while offering a good deal of flexibility too. You can define 1-10 different Google Calendar feeds and for each shortcode you can define 1 or more feeds to display on that calender. Each feed can have it’s own color scheme. With each shortcode you can reconfigure the calendar though the shortcode options.

I am hoping someone will take the code and expand it into a more robust calendaring system.

Utah Utopia Summary

Oren was an excellent tour guide and we visited some awesome places, Arches, Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef National Parks. In addition I was able to add Canyonlands NP and Dead Horse, and Goblin State Parks to my list. And we also did some hikes that were great too.

But as a sag driver I was only able to do sag duties two days as the weather made bike riding untolerable. The one opportunity we had to camp, with decent weather, at Goblin State Park the campground was booked and the few places left that were available was in the mud and the tent pads pools.

I have mixed emotions about having a sag on a bike tour. It seems to offer a too easy of a way out when the weather is bad, as we experienced. Without a sag you just have to tough out the weather and soldier on.

On this route riding fully loadable and camping would be rather difficult because there were some huge climbs and some smaller but rather sharp climbs most of the way. And none of us were exactly young either. The alternative is either a credit card tour or a longer loaded tour with shorter mileage.

This seemed be an anomaly with the weather we experienced as the end of September and the beginning of October are normally the prime time for southern Utah.

Long Canyon Slot

In Torrey, Utah at an art gallery I bought a framed photograph/media of this slot canyon. The photographer told me the location where he took the picture. This is the place where it was taken In Long Canyon. Actually this was taken looking out of the slot.

Cabins at Bryce

Rain today. This is Harolds Place with great little cabins and restaurant about 12 miles west of Bryce and at the start of Utah 12 scenic highway. Harpo standing there.

Oren Spoon

On a hike. At the west entrance to Zion there is great overlook we hiked to to look into Zion. Oren, our tour guide knew about all these great little hikes.
