Hi everyone!

First Weblow rocks! Also, I could really use date/calendar elements for the forms, something in the likes of:

Any DIY solution I can use in the meantime?

Thanks.

Hi @bdjidi,

Thanks for the kind words and great idea! There are a few 3rd party plugins that may be useful but I haven’t tried them out yet. Take a peek at these:

If anything works out, report back and let us know. :slight_smile:
I hope this helps. If not, I’m happy to take a closer look!

Cheers,
Will

Maybe not exactly what your after and its not built in WF but there is a input type called date
<input type="date" name"bla bla">
and a browser styled calendar date picker pops up. Could be worth taking a look at.

Edit: forgot to show the small html example I did =)

Thank you both! I’ll try the two methods and report my findings! =)

Hello,

I’m fairly new to Webflow and am really digging it!

I’m hoping to find a suggestion on how to implement a time and date picker within my site. Something like:

http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/#inline

(preferably something with a time picker incorporated also)

I’ve read in other posts on the forum that users have attempted to use JQuery and custom code to accomplish this, but I’m unsure of how/where to implement this. I’m assuming there should be a mix of embed code and custom code, but I’m unsure where to start.

Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I asked something like this yesterday, also would like to know. I did something with tabs and forms (tabs for days of the months, and in each tab a form to choose hours). I will show you when im done.

Yo can see it in webdivan.webflow.com/psi2

But im open to suggestions this took a lot of time.

I was able to correctly insert an inline date picker with JQuery based on this…

http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/

In the before < /body > tag:

<meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>jQuery UI Datepicker - Populate alternate field</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.0/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
  <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
  <script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.0/jquery-ui.js"></script>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css">
  <script>
  $(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker({
      altField: "#DatepickerBox2"  ,
      altFormat: "DD, d MM, yy"
    });
  });
  </script>

In the embed code:

<div id="datepicker"></div>

Finally, give your text field the Unique ID: DatepickerBox2

Still trying to implement a solid Timepicker. I’d like to use this one…

…but I can’t seem to make it work…

Any help out there???

Thanks,

not working for me.

When I add the embed widget…
I get this in the code

Do You Service On A Specific Date / Time

I cannot drag the textbox into the embed code either.

Hi @OurLocalMarkets, it is an awesome idea for a widget, likely appreciated by a lot of people :slight_smile: I do not have a timeline yet, but once there is action on this, there will be an update.

First off! Webflows my go to! i love it!!! But I feel like this is something that should almost be mandatory! I build websites for all kinds of clients that offer services that require dates. A calendar time picker would be F*cking Amazing!

Please Webflow, the amount of time it would take you to do this VS the amount of happy customers would be so worth the 5 hours it would probably take one of your web engineers to do. lol please. do this!

@thewonglv Any news on these matter?

I’m also interested in this feature, and I thinks it’s a crucial thing for Travel and Tour Agencies.

I also thinks this has to be combined with the Collaborator’s ability to set no available (clickable for the user) date/time gaps.
