Calendars can convey a wealth of lore about the priorities, customs, and history of your setting. They are where culture intersects the cycles of nature. Have you ever wondered why the length of the Gregorian Calendar is 7 days long? Have you ever wondered the origins of each weekday's and month's names? These were not features made in a sitting, they evolved and were injected into iterations of the calendar going back for 100 years.

Making Your Calendar

Order of Operations

  1. Create a blank calendar
  2. Initialize Weekdays and Months
  3. Add Celestials
  4. Add Events
  5. Embed and share

1: Create a Blank Calendar

Navigate to the Calendars page from the "Tools" button on the navigation sidebar of the site.

On the righthand side of the page (the bottom, if you're on mobile), is an option to create a new calendar. Title and create your calendar, and you will automatically be rerouted to its editor.

You may also choose to set the Day Offset and Year Offset at this time, though both can be edited later.

Calendar Page

2: Initialize Weekdays and Months

First, expand the "Weekdays" section and click "Add Weekday" for as many weekdays as you intend to add, then label them all accordingly. This is a required part of the calendar, as it specifies the length of a week. You can edit these later.

If you wish to hide weekdays from view, toggle Hide the names of the days of the week in presentation to hide them from the Presentation.

Next, expand the "Months" section and click "Add Month" for as many months as you intend to add. For now, I recommend adding all of them before filling them out, as adding a new one wipes out the old. Once you've added the correct number of months, fill out their length and duration. You can edit these later.

Once you have done, scroll towards the top and click the Save button.

You will now see your calendar preview rendered to your specs.

3: Add Celestials

Celestial Objects are any object important to the calendar which moves in repeating cycles. This might be moons, meteors, or other satellites, but you can get creative and treat this field however you wish.

You are given several fields to fill out. Next to each is a which you may hover for more information as to what that field is for. The important ones are the cycle, which determines how long a celestial takes to go between 'new moon' phases, and shift, which shifts the initial phase of the celestial forward (or backwards with negative numbers) so you can adjust it to your preference.

  Icon: They can be any icon from Fontawsome or RPG-Awesome.
Color: Use HTML Colors to change the secondary color of the background.
Classes: Custom css classes can be used for a special layout for each celestial object.
Description: This description will appear in a modal when clicking on the celestial object on the embedded calendar.  

4: Add Events

Events are nonstatic recurring occurences within a calendar. This may be holidays, or leap days, or anything else you can concoct. Add them by hovering the date you wish to add an event to and clicking the button which appears. This will open a dialog full of event creation options. If you are confused by an option, click the floating symbol for help. If that doesn't help, ask below and I will answer within a day or two!

5: Embed and Share

Others can only see your Calendar if you embed it into an article to share first. You can embed your calendar by clicking the Copy Calendar BBCode button towards the top of the editor, and pasting the result into an article.

To set a year, add it as an argument. So if, for example, the BBCode is [calendar:50126] you can set it to [calendar:50126|2020] to have it render as the year 2020.

This not a timeline!

Calendars are not timelines! Instead, they are a template of events to be combined with your timeline! A calendar represents a cycle, a timeline represents a line.

CSS Editing

For Journeymen+

The calendar is chock-full of unique selectors you can use for styling it with CSS. I've put calendar- at the front of all the selectors you should be using for this, so if you see an element we missed and would like us to add it, comment below!

Custom Date CSS

The tags you apply to an event are applied to the date on the presentation side. So if for example you add holiday as a tag to a note, then you can select the css of the presentation side and give it a unique styling!

 .user-css {
   box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 5px green;

Is there a way to, or future plans to make celestial objects rotate the opposite way? I can seem to make my moon cycle line up with the one on Fantasy Calendar and i think that might be the reason. (The days the full moons land is important for plot reasons)

Nov 20, 2019 21:27 by Ademal Jacklyn

Not a bad idea, I'll look into adding that! Production on the calendars will continue in december!

Hey team. Overall, I am a big fan of the calendar feature. However, I think that it would also be a great feature to add to the Campain sphere of World Anvil. Forgive me if someone has already asked about this, or if it is already a feature, but I would like to use the calendar that I have set up to keep track of campaign events and track where the characters are in the year. Is there a plan to set this up/a way to do this?

Dec 21, 2019 15:40

Also, small thing, I chose icons for some holidays in the calendar that I set up, but I am not seeing the icons on the calendar. Is there a setting that I can choose to give individual days more space to show all the icons?

Dec 23, 2019 16:32 by Ademal Jacklyn

There is no auto-tracker currently because that would be a very tricky thing to implement. It has to accommodate for worlds which have multiple calendars, which means there's quite a bit of work I would need to do first (such as setting a main calendar, setting a way to calculate what one date on one calendar is to another, etc).   It's on my possible list, but it's not very high currently.   What you can do currently is to embed it into an article and add that article to the campaign and have them refer to it often. And you can set up the current day like you would any other event and each day update it and delete the old one.   For your other issue, I'd need a link to the article the calendar is embedded in to see and help with the issue.

Jan 11, 2020 13:39

Thank you for informing me on the hurdles there, I understand you putting other features before that. However, if you all eventually have time and it is feasible, it would be awesome!   As for my issue, I was able to sort it out. Turns out I didn't understand the format I needed to have other icon identifiers in, but I have since figured it out. Sorry for the trouble!

Jan 14, 2020 16:32 by Ademal Jacklyn

All good! Glad you were able to get it!

Perhaps having a default event called 'Current Day' that we could add to the calendars would work, with some functionality to click a 'next day' button to move the event? I'm not a coder so no idea how complicated that would be!   A way to have the calendar automatically open on a certain month would be useful enough :)

Jan 12, 2021 04:35

I'm looking to use the calendar similar to Master TricksyBard. If there was a way to add items to a calendar that link to a page, that would be great. Our group has a "home base", and goes out to adventure, so if we could click to link a date range to session notes, that would fulfill my need.

Mar 21, 2023 09:01

That's a great idea. I think that's a good approach. I thumb up this suggestion to give it a second vote!

Dec 23, 2019 08:40 by UhtCeara

Hi, apologies if this is just an oversight on my part, but i can't seem to locate or identify what icons are available for the celestial bodies. a) can someone please direct me to where i can find this information. b) can i suggest a drop down list for this feature such as the one available on the mapping feature?

Dec 23, 2019 16:28 by Ademal Jacklyn

1: There's a bit of info in that section of the event creator, but you can find all the possible icons here. Find one you want and click it to go to its page, then copy the text from its class into that field on WA. For example, mountain would be fas fa-mountain.   2: Given the number of options I likely won't implement a dropdown, but perhaps I can find an elegant way to have some defaults, sure. :)

When looking at a holiday, when custom celestial object names are applied, every phase appears as if it were the first phase, or "new" (for me, "Dead")

Jan 10, 2020 22:17 by Ademal Jacklyn

I'll look into it!

I have this issue, as well. Three moons with different colors, but use the standard object phases/aliases. When I imbed the calendar in an article and click on an event, the pop-up shows the correct event title and lunar phase icons, but the text by each moon image is "is New" not Young or Waxing, etc.   Also, is there a way to see lunar phases on the calendar (or by clicking on a moon) on days that have no events, or do I need to create an event for each day I want to be able to look at the moons' phases for that day?

Feb 2, 2020 15:00

UPDATE: I figured out how to change the font icon for the moons to fas fa-circle, and can now see the lunar phases on the main calendar without needing to open an event.

Feb 2, 2020 20:02 by Ademal Jacklyn

Oooh I better make sure I'm setting that as the default. That makes a lot of sense—thank you for the input!

Feature Request: Have the ability to turn off the display of Day of the Month.   Combined with the "Week Names" feature this make it so you calendar is by Week-Name, Day-Name vs Day of Month.

Mar 7, 2020 17:06 by Brian Clymer

There used to be a short toolbox where you could input the current/active day in your world's calendar. That feature seems to now be gone, or has moved. How do I, now, set my current day for my campaign?

Mar 8, 2020 19:45 by Ademal Jacklyn

You could add it as an event and update it as necessary, as holidays can style their holiday if you add some of the premade options.

When I Save Information, no preview appears. If I embed the calendar in an article I can look at it, but I can't see it in the editor.

Apr 4, 2020 07:08 by Ademal Jacklyn

Have you added weeks and days? If so, I'll have to see the article you've embedded it in.

Having same issue here too. Days and weeks added. No preview.

Same problem, no changes are saved when I click save information. My long description just disappears. No previews either.

I am also having this issue. This error appears in the console: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined at Object.<anonymous> (calendar?v=09742:22)   The line it's breaking on is: if(typeof val.month=='undefined'"-")[0];"-")[1];}   Seems to break at the first split, when it's setting the month.

Hi there, there seems to be a missing screenshot at the beginning. At least, the first sentence indicates there should be one. It seems it would have some important & useful info.

First of all, you want to fill out all the values in the screenshot above.

Hi. Just wanted to say that the calendar updates are AWESOME!!! Thanks so much Team WA!!!!

I'm having difficulty importing the JSON data from another calendar that I have.

May 6, 2020 20:54 by Ademal Jacklyn

Spaceflows is a fellow user and cannot help you, and even if they could that would give them no information to work with.   If the JSON is from another site it's not going to work. If it's from another WA calendar please contact me through the discord and we can investigate together. :)

Previously it was said that this feature would be available soon: "Is there a way to link directly to a specific month in the calendar when embedded? aka calendar:20011|2019|1" Specifying a year works, but I can't get it to default to a month/day. Is this feature still being worked on?

May 6, 2020 20:52 by Ademal Jacklyn

It is, sorry. It got pushed down the list a bit.

Happy to know it's on the list :-)

May 29, 2023 18:11

It has been three years. Is this still even on the list? Or has this been completed and I'm just not using the arguments correctly?

May 19, 2020 02:57

Hello! I seem to be having an issue where when making holidays and setting them to Annually, they are still showing up monthly. Am I doing something wrong?

Jun 8, 2020 23:02

What do the presentation tags "Inset" and "Outset" mean?

Jun 14, 2020 17:50 by Ademal Jacklyn

They're not currently functional (bug) but they are meant to make the day look inset (like these comment boxes) or outset (like a button).

How does one get the lunar phases to show as the phase names (waxing, waning, new, old) and not the celestial body name?

Jun 14, 2020 17:52 by Ademal Jacklyn

Jun 17, 2020 09:47

Anyone know how to solve this? When embedded in an article the numbers are white and impossible to read against the white background of the calendar and I haven't found a way to solve it. ;-;

Jun 17, 2020 17:21 by Ademal Jacklyn

Add this to your CSS for now, I need to sweep through all the styles and fix the Calendar CSS to work better with them.

Is there a way to have timeline events show up on the calendar and vice-versa? Or do you need to create them separately?   Or am I misunderstanding the calendar and it's really just there to track recurring things (lunar changes, holidays, etc...)

Jul 15, 2020 16:51 by Ademal Jacklyn

For now it's just to track recurring events. With the next update of the Timeline the goal is to be able to show a timeline as a calendar and so see that calendar as its holidays and timeline events.

Dec 16, 2021 13:40

Hi, is this feature still on the list? In my campaign we're at the moment using a spread sheet to keep track of time and what session happened on what date. So when I recently upgraded my WA account I got excited to see the Calender feature (gorgeous!), but then realised, that I couldn't really use it for that purpose, because I can only add regular events, to the calender, not one time events.

Jul 19, 2020 22:03

Hey so maybe i'm doing something wrong but my calendar looks nothing like the one in the screenshot and i can't add holidays. Do i have to upgrade to get this?

Jul 20, 2020 00:48 by Ademal Jacklyn

No you have the guild level to do everything. How are you trying to add holidays and what happens when you do?

Well my screen doesn't look like the one up above. There's no calendar chart to edit. I can change the weekdays, months and celestial objects and that is pretty much it.

Jul 25, 2020 18:21 by Ademal Jacklyn

Hmm. I can help you faster through the discord on this one but will try. Have you added weekdays?

Oh yea i can add the months and weekdays to the calendar. Ok ill go to discord

Aug 2, 2020 23:23

Forgive me if this has been answered, but when I embed my calendar with a year offset, the celestial bodies don't adjust for the offset. What am I doing wrong? example: I embed

and the moon phases are the same as when I embed
even though I set different cycle values. Thank!

Like DMGraham said it's not a problem at all :)

Aug 16, 2020 21:53

Just started making my first world(s) and noticed something with the calendars. It may be a known bug, but when I add the moon cycles and click on the moon phase image in the calendar it just gives the basic definition of the moon, not its current phase. However if I have added a holiday to the date and click on the holiday it gives the phases of each moon. Not sure if it supposed to work that way, but it would be useful to see the written phase of the moon when you click on the phase image as it is hard for players to remember which images mean what phase.

Aug 17, 2020 03:34 by Ademal Jacklyn

Aug 22, 2020 18:16

Some calendars (The Harptos of Faerun and Tolkien's Shire Reckoning, off the top of my head) have High Holidays that are "between" months, and have no weekday or calendar day number attached to them.   eg: The summer solstice might be celebrated between June and July, and be neither Tuesday June 30th nor Wednesday July 1st. There's a "leap-day", kind of, for such holidays. You get Tuesday, Solstice, Wednesday.   I tried adding the high days in the Harptosian calendar as separate months, but they get assigned a weekday. Will there be a way to flag high days as having no week-day attached to them, or some such means/method?   Thanks!!

Aug 22, 2020 18:26

Also, leap-years... Thanks!!

Aug 24, 2020 22:32 by Ademal Jacklyn

Those both use the same logic under the covers and are a part of the current WIP update!

Aug 26, 2020 20:03

Thank you Ademal! That's great!   Also, for lunar cycles: will it be possible to specify the length of days in hours, and that lunar cycles are a combination of days and hours? Again using Faerûn, Selûne has a period 30 days and 10 hours, so every 12 lunar cycles moves the new moon forward 5 calendar days. Thanks!

Aug 23, 2020 02:27

Is there a way to get the descriptions for individual months to actually display? I can't seem to get them to work no matter what I try.

Aug 24, 2020 22:31 by Ademal Jacklyn

I have been have this problem for weeks...thought it was weird or something I should live with didn't realize it was a bit bugged. calendar:49177 []   ALSO a little off topic but I can't get the Celestial Objects descriptions to pop up without an event...even you calendar does it. If you click on a day without an event all it says is Luna2 or Kera Phases [For mine]. it doesn't say waxing or winning at all UNLESS you put an event on it.   Thanks for all your work on this it is awesome!!!

Sep 12, 2020 06:16

2 things, first, I am having the same problem as Venerable Grandmaster Arkandy. I made my calendar, put in all the months and when I put in a holiday and set it to occur annually, it shows up no matter the month that I click on in the month list on for the calendar at the bottom of the page. Don't know if this will help but I did try embedding it in an article and when I did so I would click on other months, but the 1st one remained highlighted as though I could not see the other ones.   Next is a question. Is there any likelihood that the calendar will be attached to the tab that lets us set our world's current date. You can currently set this for the World (World>SETTINGS & TOOLS>Configuration>Date & Time). That way people know when we are at in the settings history when the log into the world. I would love to have these synced up so that I can continue to advance the time. Which would be important for my players and for me as the GM to help keep track of when we are.

Sep 13, 2020 21:54 by Ademal Jacklyn

Make sure the event is set to annual, not yearly. I'll investigate more on my side.   It will be synced with timelines for sure. Not sure yet about current date. I would like to do that, yes, but it has to be a robust implementation that keeps a current date regardless of which calendar system that's being used.

Admael, hope you are well. I am still seeing a lot of odd behavior with the calendars. I cannot seem to add or modify Annual events anymore.

Ademal, oofdah, I am finding a lot of issues with the display of the calendar when you click on the entries. Especially with the celestial parts. For example, when I click on an entry my calendar will pop of a message with the correct display but the moon will say moon is in 0.   Also seeing an issue when I click on a moon it shows the last calendar entry I clicked on no matter which moon I clicked on.

Moon in 0: You'll have to set the name of the phase and save it in the editor. This is because I have no placeholder value for new celestials, but it has phantom placeholder text that makes it look like it does. I'll be fixing that.   Last moon clicked: On my list to fix!   Annual Events: I think I fixed it. Dimi should deploy within the next few hours (It's currently 9pm PST)   I also fixed a lot of weirdness caused by having a space in one of your month names, and I think that was causing a lot of your other issues so that should help a lot!

Things seem to be getting more stable. I do wish there was was a skip a particular note on the calendar when it is superseded. For example, lets say you have a Low Mass every Sunday, but once a year, you have a High Mass that super cedes the Low mass. Currently one has to manually add events for each day or group 1-7, X, 9-12

Are there any plans to have intercalary days that cycle every (x) years, so we can program in leap years for every four years, instead of annually? I tried to program in a leap year, but the intercalary events only have the option to occur annually, or monthly, with options to occur on celestial alignments, or monthly on a certainn weekday in a particular week.

Yep! Here's a preview of my current project:

Dec 21, 2020 20:05

Any news on this rolling out yet? I know I sound impatient but this would be super helpful to have this function right about now.

Mar 17, 2021 15:43

Leap days are the norm because of Earth, but if you have a planet whose orbital period has a fractional part greater than 0.5, then you would have skip days. That is, if you have orbital period of 300.75, you would have a day skipped every 4 years.   With the recurrence set up as you do in the above screenshot, this type of thing wouldn't be possible. We only have the ability to add days in intercalary events, not remove them. We would need to be able to recur every year except every X years.   I understand if it's not a high priority, but I would certainly appreciate that functionality.

Nov 13, 2020 01:57

Is it possible to adjust the size of the calendar (or will this be possible in the future?) I think it would be cool if we could add a calendar widget to the home page of our worlds, as a quick reference to players.

Nov 14, 2020 16:58

Are there a way to make celestial objects with more complex cycles than just a single value? My world has nine moons, however none of these moons are "moons" as we would define the word in modern times, while they move across the sky and have longer cycles just like a moon would, they do not depend on the world's rotation, nor the sun's location for their current positional and lunar state. They are more like...representatives of different dimensions, and as such do not move in relation to orbital mechanics when it comes to the sun and planetoid they orbit.   Essentially, I am asking if there is a way to have celestial objects that have multiple cycles without having to make an object for each cycle (making 27 different celestial objects sounds very tedious).

Dec 24, 2020 03:08

Is there a way to make the celestial objects themselves smaller on the calendar dates? I love this feature but unfortunately having three moons is covering all my calendar dates. Thank you so much!

Jan 7, 2021 18:46 by Ademal Jacklyn

Hey! Sorry, thank you for your patience. Life has kept me very locked down on my time since then so another Dev has taken up the Calendars and is, I believe, tying them into the updating Cronos update.

Do you need to be a guild member to create weeks in a calendar? If not I don't know where to add them because I only see the month section where you can add the names of them but nothing else.

Jan 7, 2021 18:47 by Ademal Jacklyn

Weeks are defined by the individual number of days declared under weekdays.

When you add leap days, could you make it possible to have a month of 0 days? Basically, I have a leap month of 3 days. Which does leaps just like Earth (every 4 years except every hundred, but yes on 400). Oh, and it would be really nice to have it not mess up the week days. Basically, insert 3 days at the end of the year, and the first day of the next year starts on First Day.

Jan 16, 2021 16:40 by Ademal Jacklyn

I'm adding a "addafter" option to events which inserts the events into days after the selected day, and with that you can add it to the last month to recur every 100 years. It's not complete yet, but that'll be the method for this.

Feb 12, 2021 23:35

+1 on this feature. As a DM, I'd like to tag a day on the calendar as "TODAY" so that my remote adventure team knows what day it is! :)

Feb 12, 2021 18:21

First time posting - I don't think I saw this question in previous posts.   I want to make a celestial object that is a constellation (like the Zodiac) that is either in ascent or at zenith. Is there a way to remove the other phases so they don't show up on the calendar (I don't need new, old, waning, etc.)? Also, is there a way to define how long an object is in any given state? I would like a constellation to be at it's zenith for a set amount of time independent of it's cycle, if that is possible.   Thanks for any assistance!

The calendar is a wonderful feature that I have had much fun with creating. There is one minority that I would like to ask about if possible? The current layout and settings suggest a calendar that is similar to the Gregorian as of names, weeks and ect. One way that I see it would give freedom to more alien calendars is a thing I made for may own world, although it's just a drop of the ocean of how the concept can be twisted to serve many creators in their own way - my calendar instead of weekdays has monthweeks. Each month has three weeks and and one week has 12 days. Instead of giving name to each day, they are called by their week and their number (basically you immediately know if it's the start, middle or end of the current month, along with the start, middle and end of the week). But by any means, the work you've done is marvellous and I hope to see it in it's full version one day. Thank you for your time!

Feb 15, 2021 13:11 by Nightly Seawave

Also, it seems that the BBCode to put in an offset year in editing doesn't work. I can't call it with the "[" and when I copy it, it doesn't allow me to edit anything in the "". Thank you again!

Feb 20, 2021 01:50 by Ademal Jacklyn

In regards to days/months/weeks, that phrasing is purely on the editor side, so however you use it to present your data is up to you. A calendar is a representative grid of numbers to be used how you like.   I'll look into the bug!

Hi! So I'm trying to set up the calendar for my upcoming Traveller RPG campaign, and I can't quite get it to work the way it's supposed to (   It's supposed to have 7-day weeks and 365-day years, with each day numbered individually rather than divided into months. Day 001 of every year is called "Holiday", and is not part of any week. The first day of the first week of the year is day 002.   It doesn't seem like there's any way to have intercalary events that aren't part of a week, so I was thinking I could maybe simulate that by making Holiday its own month, with the rest of the year a separate 364-day month. But when I do that, the first day of the 364-day "month" is numbered 1, when I want it to be numbered 2, and I don't see any way to override that. I also tried the "Event end marks the beginning of a new week" option in the Event Editor window, but it doesn't seem to work for single-day events.   Have I missed a way to set the calendar up the way I want it? Or if not, would it be possible for you to add or change a feature so as to allow it (e.g. change the "Event end marks the beginning of a new week" option so that it works for single-day events)?

Feb 20, 2021 01:47 by Ademal Jacklyn

There's some WIP bugs which may be causing issues here as well, but events much be part of a month, yes. There's going to be an option which visually resets the number, but for the sake of timelines that will still be the second day most likely.

Feb 26, 2021 22:37 by Ada Douglass

Thanks, I think I found a workaround - I made day 2 a holiday as well, with “Event start marks the beginning of a new week” selected. So now at least day 2 is the first day of a new week every year, like it’s supposed to be.   I have a new problem, though - it’s not displaying the day number for day 2 anymore, only the name of the holiday. Is that a bug? If not, how do I fix it?

It's been a few months since I looked in on the calendar I spend a lot of time building for my RPG campaign. The formatting is a mess. Some days display CSS code right on the day, the symbols for events are hidden behind the moons icons, the borders of the days are wacked, and there's a strange large "i" on a few of the days. What happened to the calendar?

Hopefully, no one has asked this already; is there a way to designate specific months to a celestial objects? Example; 16 months where during 4 of them the moon speeds up its rotation. Object Phases but for specific months, essentially.

Feature Suggestion (?): idk if this will be available in the future or someone else already suggested (sorry it's just a lot of comments) it but having the option to have a day outside of the week would be cool, or the option to have various week lengths throughout the month (e.g 1st week 5 days, 2nd 10 days, 3rd 15 days or something like that). I have the day of Fullmoon as a seperate weekday but it obviously occures only once a month. I tried to work around it with intercalary events and have it as a seperate "week" but that doesn't currently work for only one day, it always sets it as the first day of the week and the normal non-Fullmoon days following as 2nd, 3rd, etc. day even with both beginning and end of the event marking a new week. Maybe that's a bug though?

Hi! If you're using CSS, classes are like "tags" —you can use them to apply custom styles to specific elements. So, for example, you could have a CSS class called ".red" that makes the text red. Then, in your calendar, you can use the class "red" to apply the CSS styling. Hope this makes sense!

Is there a way to add “Ghost days” at the end of every month? My world is obsessed with the number 9, but have 28 days in a month choosing to treat the last day of a month as an extra day instead of rolling it over into the next week.

Jul 5, 2022 08:33

Just so I understand correctly, you want to add a day that comes after the last day of the month but isn't counted as part of the week? I'm afraid that not currently possible. This would require making a single week have one extra day, which is not supported. The closest workaround I can think of is creating a separate month for each of these 29th days.

[they/them] Creator of Black Light, a science-fantasy universe.
Jul 7, 2022 10:20

Thanks for your reply @Ondo, Just for clarity, the calendar I created outside world anvil has 18 months with 3 weeks/month each of 9 days/week. There are 18 extra days/year which are divided up and added on at the end of each month “outside” of the normal week to preserve the first of every month landing on the first day of the week. Is there a way to add an extra day/week which is skipped in all but the third week of each month? Or in using your suggestion of a separate month between, is it possible to add a month without using a weekday?

Jul 7, 2022 10:30

Unfortunately that's not possible. It sounds like a more advanced version of leap days (i.e. February 29 in our world), which are also not currently supported. I would say your best option here is to create the calendar without these days and then explain how the system works with a short paragraph next to the calendar.

Aug 1, 2022 16:23 by Alex Cline

How are calendars with different numbers of days/months handled? Like obviously there's the UTD which is the objective date of the world. But if you have a calendar with 364 days and another with 384 days, these calendars years will slowly drift away from each other. With this example, their days would line back up after 34,944 days but one would be at year 96 and the other would be at year 91. Is there a way to display years in this way for a single event or would you have to duplicate the event in another timeline to do this kind of thing?

Aug 2, 2022 07:26

I don't think I follow. You can have two different calendars, that's not an issue. But if you're writing about an event's year, you'll have to type the year manually, regardless of how many calendars you have. Could you clarify what you're trying to do? Thanks!

Hello, I had a question about the calendar feature. How do you set up Leap Years? There doesn't seem to be a setting for an event to happen only once every x amount of years so it looks like it will create a leap year every calendar year? Is this a feature that is planned to be updated soon or maybe something you would consider adding? If I'm missing it, could you please let me know how it works or make a Codex article about how to make an event happen ever few years/ every few months instead of once a month or once a year? Thank you!

Aug 2, 2022 07:36

Hi! Yes, I don't think that's possible right now. Unfortunately, calendars development is on hold, so for now there are no plans to add it. It's planned to either remake the feature or restart development eventually, but I don't know when that will happen.

Aug 23, 2022 01:36

It would be really cool if there was some way to link events to celestial bodies or somehow auto-generate events based on celestial bodies, like if you have multiple moons with different cycles lengths it could definitely be a holiday when both/all of those moons are full but it would happen at a different time every year or maybe it wouldn't even happen every year!

Hi there team!   This is great. I want to add this to my world homepage but it keeps getting all compressed when I try and put it in the custom content area. Any advice here?

Oct 13, 2022 07:56

Hi! In which custom content box are you putting it, and how many days does a week have? The three columns are pretty narrow, so if your week is around the standard 7 days it will looks compressed because there's not enough space. Try putting it in the full-width area instead so it takes up the full width of the page.   Let me know if I've misunderstood the issue here!

[they/them] Creator of Black Light, a science-fantasy universe.
Oct 20, 2022 19:10

Yes that all makes sense! I think my issue is that I don't want the calendar to be massive like it would be in the full width box. I also don't want it to appear above all my other content. If there's not a solve for this then that's fine! :)

Dec 16, 2022 02:14

Searching through with a handy ctrl+f, I only found 6 mentions of intercalary events, and all seemed to be referring to days. My calendar, similar to an early roman calendar, makes use of an intercalary month to offset the difference in days. This extra thirteenth month occurs every three years.   All that said, I have no idea how I might make this happen using the calendar tool. I see that as of October 21st intercalary events are live, but all mentions I've heard of them are for days, not months, and I'm a writer not a coder, and am afraid that if coding is necessary, I might not be able to have an accurate calendar.   If I've missed something obvious, I sincerely apologize! If you could please let me know if intercalary months are planned or possible, and how I can add one, I'd be incredibly grateful. Have a good day!

Dec 16, 2022 08:55

Hi! Intercalary months are currently not supported, and development on Calendars is on hold—so it won't be implemented soon. We plan on re-working the Calendars feature though, so that might be added when we do so!

Jan 16, 2023 09:59

HI! To get the class of any elements on a website, you can right-click, select "Inspect" and look at the HTML code to see it. Celestial objects have the "celestial-object" class, so ".user-css .celestial-object" should do it. Although if you're changing the size, you'll probably have to resize the icon too ("celestial-icon"). Let me know if that helps!

Mar 6, 2023 09:04

It's not possible to completely hide a moon icon for part of the year, no. If you're proficient with CSS, you might be able to hide them in specific months of the year (as each month has a unique identifier you can target).

Hi! The only exporting option for the calendar right now is JSON.

Makes sense, I'll need to figure out how to create my own XML file then so I can port my calendar into FG. I know that calendars are on hold right now in WA so maybe one day.

Hello all. When I put in a second celestial object the info on the calendar article always says it is 'in new' or any other term I have substituted for the first phase. I am quite stumped as to how I could fix this. The icon goes through the phases just fine but the text always stays the same. I have seen multiple comments referencing this problem but there never seems to be a solution given (I could be wrong).   Thank you

Hi! I'm not able to reproduce the issue—when viewing the calendar, both celestial bodies have both the correct icon and text for me. If you can think of any other details in the way you've set up your calendar, I'll be happy to look into it.   Keep in mind that development on Calendars is currently on hold, which means that if the solution needs development work (such as fixing a bug or improving a feature) it's unlikely it will be done until we update the entire module (which is planned in the future).

Hey, thank you for your time. Tt just seems to be a problem when the cycle is longer than a month? Everything is normal until I go to the second month. The symbols on the imbedded calendar are different than those when I click on a certain day. The names start off correct but then become seemingly random when I click on the next month. f.e. last day of month 1 is waning crescent, but the 1st day of month 2 is young, skipping old and new completely.   I'm not sure what else it can be because my 30day cycle moon (30day months) works fine.

You're right, it happens to me starting from the second month too. This is most likely a bug then, but unfortunately, as I mentioned previously, development on this feature is on hold.

I'm curious if there is a way to make the numbers on the days not appear. My calendar doesn't use them. I can see how to remove the days of the week from displaying, but nothing about the numbers. Not a big deal either way, but I was just curious.

Not with a setting, but if you're willing to get into a technical advanced feature, you might be able to remove them with CSS. Check the CSS guides for more details.

I cannot figure out how to make a leap day occur every 4th year instead of every single year. Is this not yet implemented or am i missing something (seems kind of crucial for making the days line up correctly with the lunar cycle and the days of the week)

Hi! Unfortunately, this is not currently supported. Development on Calendars is currently on hold, but we have a calendar overhaul planned in our internal roadmap (although other areas of the website have higher priority right now).

Is there a way to change the chronicles display of bce and ce?

Aug 28, 2023 09:05

Hi! No, there isn't a way to change them at this point in time.

Hi, getting started, I have a few questions:   1. What is the import function (e.g., JSON)? Does this indicate that there are existing calendars one can import?   2. I am trying to set up the D&D 5E Forgotten Realms' 'Calendar of Harptos, which has 30-day months, each with three 10-day weeks. However between these months there five 1-day events (e.g., Midsummer) which are 1-day and do NOT have a weekday name (like the months have) - How can I make sure that each 30-day month starts its three 10-day weeks with the standard names, and the 1-day special events do not count toward cycling weekday names?

Sep 4, 2023 08:04

Hello,   The JSON code can be used to import calendars other people (or yourself) have created on World Anvil. You can check Graylion's Well of Ages for several fantasy calendars you can import, including the Harptos calendar. With the current implementation of calendars, these 1-day events can either be represented as an additional day in the previous month, or as their own month—the Well of Ages has both options as different calendars.   Let me know if you need anything else!

Is there currently or planned a means to import calendars from I spent a lot of time making one there and should much like to import it to here

Sep 18, 2023 08:46

Hi! There are currently no specific plans for this. Calendars will get an overhaul at some point in the future so it wouldn't be practical to think about this kind of integration now.

My Donjon Import isn't working. Does the Caladar not do Imports yet?

Oct 22, 2023 23:39

Sorry I just realized. WA Import stands for World Anvil meaning we only have Imprt available for world anvil worlds. Iiiiiiii get it now

Oct 23, 2023 05:48

That is correct, glad you could figure it out! Let me know if I can help with anything else :)
