  1. I need a horizontal layout like the scrolling list, but I can't use a scrolling list for a couple of reasons. The first is that it has a lot of flicker, and generally looks pretty jumpy on the screen (at least with the colors/fonts used in this site). The second is that the site needs to be "as 508 compliant as possible". Marquees are specifically not 508 compliant. I just want a simple horizontal layout that displays the names of the 3 next events coming up. Is there some other way to do this? Similarly, there are places where a 2 column layout of events is desired, but as far as I can tell, I can only create a 1 column layout using the spuds. Is this correct? I would like to get the events from the next week, but I don't want to display the same events every time a user visits the page. Instead, I'd like to pick, say 5 random events from the next week and display them so that different events are promoted. Is there a way to do this? I want to query the calendar to get the upcoming events, but when a user clicks the link, I want the user to be directed to my detail page, not the calendar detail page. I know they can click the "more info" link on the event to get back, but the page only vaguely matches my site, and the more prominent link is the "return to xxxx calendar" link at the bottom, which further pushes the user into the calendar site. The only obvious way to navigate back is with the back button on the browser. I'd really like to pull from the calendar, but keep the user within my site instead of redirecting them to the calendar site. Is there some way do accomplish this without iFrames?
  2. Is there any way to make the "more" link of an event open in the same window? The default behavior is to open a new window, which I would like to avoid if possible.
  3. Do you have any plans to make Calendar queries available via a web service? This would be a huge advantage to me, because I have several requests to pull calendar events and display them in ways that your spuds do not accommodate. With a WS interface, I could easily do this. Your technologies appear to be .Net based, which would again make it pretty easy to put a service facade on top of the calendar engine. Plus, having web services is now a pretty standard criteria for "enterprise-level" apps.
  4. I would like to associate different colors with each of my custom event types. It sounds like the way to do this is to create separate calendars for each event type and then create a mix-in that combines these. Is this correct? Is there no way to just associate a color with each of my custom event types?
