Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your comments.

1) Is not a bug as such it was caused by the way I coded the days ... I 
have now re-factored the code to let wiki administrators use whichever 
language they like by setting $LogbookDays and $LogbookMonths in 

2) That one is a tricky one ... I can't reproduce it but I use 2.0.13 
not any of the 2.1 (I should now that Pm as released 2.1.0) Maybe Pm can 
enllighten us on the session bug you encounter. In any case I changed 
the call to session_start() to @session_start() it may make a difference 
can you check when you get a chance? There could be a conflict with 
other cookbook recipes.

3) Done ... today is now clearly visible.

You can get the updated logbook.php and logbook.css on 

I called it v 0.4 as there are new features (which you suggested).

Hope you'll feel like keeping on using (:logbook:),

Best regards,
