Hi, I am using the Zickey Calendar 5 and it is working well but can anyone tell me how I can put in a "Today" button, so when you click it it will take you to todays day, and how can I highlight todays date. Thank you in advance

Hi, thank you for your help, however I am struggling to find where to put the code in my existing code:

<?php
$timestamp = mktime(0,0,0,$cMonth,1,$cYear);
$maxday = date("t",$timestamp);
$thismonth = getdate ($timestamp);
// To start the calendar on Monday instead of Sunday, switch out the next 2 lines
// $startday = $thismonth['wday'];
$startday = $thismonth['wday'] -1;
for ($i=0; $i<($maxday+$startday); $i++) {
if(($i % 7) == 0 ) echo "<tr>\n";
if($i < $startday) {
echo "<td></td>\n";
}
else {
$day = $i - $startday + 1;
echo "<td class='CalDates'>". $day . "<br />";
// check if there are any events for this day
if (array_key_exists($day, $croscombe_eventsByDay)) {
// list all croscombe_events for this day
foreach ($croscombe_eventsByDay[$day] as $record) {
?> <div id="calFonts">
<h3><?php echo htmlencode($record['title']) ?></h3>
<p><strong><?php echo date("g:i a", strtotime($record['start_date'])) ?></strong></p>
<?php if($record['end_time'] != "0000-00-00 00:00:00") : ?>
<?php echo $record['end_time'] ?>
<?php endif; ?>

<p><?php echo htmlencode($record['location']) ?></p>
<hr>
<?php if($record['description'] != "") : ?>
<a href="/NEW-SITE-MERCER/croscombe<?php echo $record['_link'] ?>">Find out more >></a>
<?php endif; ?>
</div>
<?php
}
}
echo "</td>\n";
}
if(($i % 7) == 6 ) echo "</tr>\n";
}
?>

Hi MercerDesign,

With your code, you should be able to do something like changing this line:

echo "<td class='CalDates'>". $day . "<br />";

To this:

if ($cMonth == date('n') && $cYear == date('Y') && $date == date('j')) {
  echo "<td class='CalDates today'>". $day . "<br />";
} else {
  echo "<td class='CalDates'>". $day . "<br />";
}

You could then use a ".today" CSS class to change the styling for that day. 

Let me know if that clears it up, or if you have any more questions!
