How to Shrink a SharePoint Calendar View

Have you ever needed to add a Event Calendar to your Team Site with the calendar view but you didn’t because it basically took up the whole site? Well just today I was messing around with this and came up with some interesting results.

If you look at the code for a calendar view everything looks fine except for a hidden shared class at the very top of the calendar right below the webpart title.

image This image is 742 pixels wide and forces the calendar view to be minimally that width. With the CSS below you can now hide that image and allow the calendar to fit within your team site with no problems at all. By making these changes you will not change the look of the full view of the calendar when you click on the event list. The screenshot below was taken with 1024x768 resolution.

image Here is the CSS:

.ms-calheader img{
display: none;
}

#CalViewTable12 img{
display: inline;
}

.ms-cal-nav-buttonsltr{
white-space: nowrap;
}

Full Calendar View with styles applied:

Enjoy!

SharePoint 2010 Base CSS Classes

This will be the first of many SharePoint 2010 posts. I will be focusing on a few of the main CSS classes used for SharePoint 2010 Public Beta. As the product becomes more final there might be some changes to the class names but I will be sure to create a new post if that happens. This will be quite a lengthy but it should be helpful. The default CSS given below are just highlights of the full CSS attributes for that class.I will be using a basic team site as my base for the screenshots. Here is a basic structure of the main areas that I will cover.Ribbon RowTable Row Left Site Actions Navigate Up Edit Tab List Browse Page Table Row Right Give Feedback Welcome Menu WorkspaceBody Container Title Row Title Title Logo Title Text / BreadcrumbPage DescriptionSocial Data SeparatorI like It Tags/Notes Top Header 2/Top Links li Static-Selected li Static SearchHelpStatus Bar Container Main A…

How To: Hide Left Side Navigation on Home Page

I was recently asked: "How can I hide the side nav bar on the main homepage layout ?? I want to be able to use the side NAV with in the team site etc etc, but I don't want it on the front page.. " There are a couple of ways to do this in SharePoint 2010. If you are using a non-publishing site you can add a Content Editor Web Part to the page and add the following to the HTML Source.
<Style>
body #s4-leftpanel
{
display: none;
}
.s4-ca
{
margin-left: 0px;
}
</style>
Basically the CSS above hides the left navigation Div, and then sets the content area to not have a left margin. Once you are done, simply modify the web part and hide it on the page. If you are using a publishing site for your homepage simply add the same styles specified above to a custom page layout. That way if you have a need for other pages that do not need the left side navigation you can re-use the page layout.

Say that you had a site collection with a top level publishing site. This publishing site would display a the most recent blog posts from all blog sites within its own site collection.
