Alternative calendar portlet for Plone that perform some additional search
This is a simple replacement of Plone base calendar, that add only some new features and change somw behaviour for better accessibility.
Why show a search when only an event is found?
In the basic Plone calendar, when you click on a day with one event inside, you are redirected to a search result view... where the only clickable thing is the event itself.
This step is a waste of time. This new calendar will move you directly to the event itself.
Why show a search (in any case)?
Showing a search results view when using the calendar is not very user-friendly. The user will read "Results for the search..." but from his point of view this action is not a search operation.
This calendar will move the user to a specific view, with better explanatory texts.
New feature: events of the month
Simple, but useful: clicking on the month name will redirect the user to a view that display all event of the month.
