In the search module, when selecting a date range, there are buttons for pop-up calendars that can be clicked to input the date wanted.
This sort of pop-up calendar is commonplace on many websites with a booking engine that requires dates such as booking flights or hotels or renting cars.
Yet when entering a new event on the IPB calendar, there's only the dropdowns for entering the date. Would it be an idea to have a calendar popup too?
Yes, the 3 dropdowns allow selection of a date pretty quickly, but it's nice to be able to look at a calendar as you often need to know what DAY a date falls on in order to select the correct date for your event. Perhaps the little popup calendar could even have dates which already have an event on them as a different colour or hightlight or underlined or something so that you can see which dates are 'free' for the event you're intending to add?
