Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to add / update or remove events with an administration panel, unfortunately you will have to design it by yourself because AkiCalendar only provide the Javascript / CSS part of the calendar. You can display events that are loaded by AJAX but you must provide a PHP script that returns it (there is an example on how to do it).
You are free to modify AkiCalendar if you want to add something. The first goal of this plugin is to help you to add calendar easily without having to worry about the code. One advice, always keep a backup of AkiCalendar if your modifications make the plugin instable.
You can use jQuery version 1 or 2 (both are compatible). In the archive and in these examples given above, jQuery version 1.11.3 is used. You have to know that if you want to be compatible with old browsers it's preferable to use version 1, else you can use version 2.
Events must be given by your web server to AkiCalendar in order to be able to display it. An example is provided in PHP (with SQL code to create yout database), and use PDO to connect to the database. If you prefer using another programming language, feel free to do it. The only restriction is that you have to return a JSON containing all the events of the requested month.
