Hey! I cannot find the switch to close the calendar. When I click on Visited: 321 days, 3 consecutive, it pop ups the calendar. But I cannot close it. (Is refresh the only way to close it?)

+1. I came here to ask this same question! :) – PedroC88 Feb 25 '11 at 18:56
And I've never known about this calendar until now. :-) – Jamal Dec 15 '13 at 19:11
@Jamal rule #1: click everywhere, sometimes you'll be pleasantly surprised. :) – Shadow Wizard Dec 16 '13 at 18:35

There isn't any - the only way to get rid of it is to refresh or navigate to a different page.

As with other things which might be considered minor annoyances, the easiest way to get this functionality is to write a GreaseMonkey script for it.

Amazing, not only did they skimp out on the close button, they hired a blind man to style it. – The Muffin Man Apr 19 '11 at 2:32
@Nick: Are you saying 'the close button 1) is not there at all, plus 2) it looks awful'? :D But I agree, that green-and-grey look is not really consistent with the rest of the site. – Piskvor Apr 19 '11 at 6:51
I didn't see a close button, doesn't really need one honestly, but like you said, the bright green is inconsistent. I think it should have been orange personally. – The Muffin Man Apr 19 '11 at 16:33

As Piskvor has said there isn't a built in way to do this but if you copy this JavaScript to your toolbar it will close the calendar for you.


$('#days-visited').bind('click', loadCalendar); 
$('#days-visited').css('cursor', 'pointer');

Clicking somewhere other than the calendar seems to work for me as of now (Dec 14-13).

Yeah, for me it was always like this from the very first time I checked (about three years ago) so guess it was fixed shortly after this report. – Shadow Wizard Dec 15 '13 at 9:57
Works now for me in Firefox, but did not work about six months ago. – Joseph Quinsey Feb 5 '14 at 15:04
