  1. What you can do instead of selecting each event individually to change the owning calendar, is to change your view in Trumba to the "List" view. From here you can navigate to a previous month view and see a complete listing of events in the past and then either do a "Select All", which will select all events in view on that page (about 100) or manually check the check boxes next to the events you would like to archive. In the drop down directly above the events you would select "Move events to..." and in the next drop down to the right you select the "Archived Calendar" and click Go.
  2. On the page where you are showing past events with a promotion spud, by default it tries to link back to the main calendar. which by default is displaying events in ascending order. You can change the settings for the main calendar to default to descending order in the settings for some of the calendar sputs. When an event is selected you are redirected back to the main calendar, the main calendar will always show the most current events looking to the future and not in the past. One idea is to remove the teaserBase line of code in the spud, which will prevent the link from going back to the main calendar page. You can instead link the promotion spud to the Event Action page where a site visitor can take various event actions.
  3. Hi Michael, If you can email me the correct banner image to use I will go ahead and update this for you. Please email it to support@corp.trumba.com. Thanks! Steve
  4. Hi Michael, There currently is only one event action page per Publisher account, so any additional calendars you publish on the account all need to use the same Event Action page. What has worked for a few other clients is to consider using a more generic banner image that can be used for your published calendars or if appropriate you could also consider a animated GIF that can rotate between the various banner images. Thanks, Steve
  5. It looks like you may have already fixed this by placing the spuds within in iFrame on the page. It looks like it is displaying correctly now.
  6. Hi- We currently do not have a way of turning off these notification flags on the emails, but let me talk to the development team to see if this is something they are able to do. Thanks! Steve
  7. Possible to Remove Date?

    A setting on the Classic Table view allows you to remove the year from the date field. For example on this calendar view we are grouping events based on the month of June 2010 and the events are showing a date that also includes the year 2010, which may not need to be displayed. To update your Classic Table view for your published calendars to remove the year, select the published calendar in Trumba and select Publish and click the Calendar Spuds tab and then select Edit Settings & Styles for Classic Table. Select the Events: Default tab and set “Hide year when grouping” to Yes and then click OK: Your calendar will update and only display the mm/dd for the Date:
  8. The Timezone Picker Unlabeled Control Spud, is a spud that should be used on your website if your calendar includes events happening in multiple time zones and also allows visitors to change the timezone that events are displayed in as Trumba will automatically display the times of the events in that timezone. If you would like the Timezone Picker Control Spud to remember the timezone selected by the user so they do not have to select the timezone each time they visit your calendar, you can enable the option to "Remember visitor timezone" by selecting Edit Settings & Styles for the Timezone Picker Control Spud and changing the option to "Yes".
  9. While the sorting of an RSS Feed is typically handled by the RSS Reader (browser), we offer a setting in the RSS Feed setting called "Publish Date Source". By default we will display the Event Start Date and we have seen this setting can cause some RSS Readers to reverse the order of your RSS Feed. What you can do is change this setting to "No Publish Date" and your RSS Feeds should now display in the correct order.
  10. News Template widget needed

    Hi- Not sure if you have heard, however we've made a “newsworthy” improvement to Trumba Connect! Most of our calendar spuds and promotion spuds can now be configured to display events going into the past. This allows our promotion spuds and calendar views to be used to publish news and announcements in addition to events. Within the settings for the Calendar and Promotion spuds, we now have a descending option along with the ability to specify a start and end date (going backwards) I hope you will find this a useful enhancement! Thanks, Steve

  12. Most calendars have several ongoing/recurring events and sometimes it makes sense to have two calendars, one for one-time events and the other for ongoing/recurring events. This way you can publish both calendars or publish each calendar on separate pages. By doing this you can then create promotion spuds to display just the ongoing events. Another idea for you if you do not want to set up another calendar is to set up a custom field, for example "Type of Event" and you could create a value called "Ongoing Event" and another value for "One time event". When you are adding events to your calendar you will then tag the event to be an "Ongoing" or "One time event". By tagging these events with a value, you can then set up a Filter Control Spud to allows a visitor to display ongoing events on the calendar in addition to the one time events. Here is a help topic with more details. You can take this one step further and in addition to the steps above, you can set up a Filter View so when a person views the calendar you can hide the Ongoing events and only display the one-time events.
  13. Trumba allows for event image resizing or cropping across supported promotion spuds and calendar views. You will see this for the Photo Upcoming Spud as well as a few of the Calendar Views. You can have the images automatically scale down to a specific width or height that you specify instead of having to resize the image prior to adding them to your events. For example, if you select Publish>Promotion Spuds tab and then click Edit Settings & Styles for the Promotion Spud you will see these Image Options: If you change this to “Reduce” and set the width to 100 (Pixels) then all event images will be scaled to this width. The option to Show image placeholder will automatically add a space (blank image) to the left of the event information. For example, here is promotion spud with no image placeholder and you can see the events with no images stay flush left: Here is the same promotion spud using an image placeholder and the event are indented: If you are allowing image submissions using the Event Submission Form, you won’t have to worry about having to manually resize the images for the events as you can control them by the calendar settings and promotion spud settings. Submitters can submit any image size and they will automatically scale to the width or height you specify in your calendar and promotion spuds. Tip: I like to set the border and background to “ transparent” in case the event image you add is smaller than the preferred size it will prevent a background color from showing through around the edges of the images and look cleaner. Also, the event image can also appear on the event detail page by default when no default image is added. The Detail Image size is set under the Event Image section under Publish>Calendar Spuds tab>Edit Settings & Styles for the Event Detail. Typically the recommended width is no wider than the width of the main calendar spud.
  14. Facebook

    There is currently no additional functionality changes to the way events are added to Facebook, however I will submit this as a feature request for you:) Thanks, Steve
  15. We have an update on the email subject line that some of you may have seen recently and reported some inconsistency around. The subject line of the subscription email will no longer add the word "schedule" unless your calendar name already ends in the word "schedule". If your calendar name in Trumba is called "Local Events Schedule", the subject line of the subscription email will state ""Local Events Schedule for March 9-13th". If the calendar name does not end with the word "Subscription" or “Calendar”, the subscription email will include the word “calendar” in the subject line. For example, if your calendar name within Trumba is called “Local Events”, the subject line of the subscription email will now state “Local Events calendar for March 9-13”. Thanks, Steve
  16. Thanks for the feedback! This is a feature request our development team is aware of and if implemented I will post an update.
  17. If you select Edit Distribution List we do show icons next to the email address. If the icon appears with a red X on an envelope, that means the person has opted out from receiving the subscription email. This way the Trumba publisher can still see all email addresses that have subscribed to the calendar email. The other icon you may see are the double-red exclamation points. This indicates that the email address may not be valid or has been flagged with a bounced flag and Trumba is not able to deliver email to that email address.
  18. Let me see if I can get more information on this one from our development team. If your calendar does not have the word "calendar" after it, then the email drops in the word "schedule" to the subject line. Currently there is not a way to customize the email or the email subject line. Once I find out more on this I will update the post. Thanks, Steve
  19. Custom Display Name

    Hi, Unfortunately there has not been any change in this functionality. It is still an active feature request that we are still looking at to determine how to prioritize the importance against other feature enhancements to improve as well as new feature enhancements. Thanks, Steve
  20. Upcoming Fader List display

    For this Promotion Spud, there is a setting for "Events per page". When the value is set to one (1) this tells the spud to only show 1 event continuously. Since there is more than 1 event on the calendar that should be fading in and out on this spud, you want to increase this to possibly 2 or more. You can go higher depending on how many events you want the spud to "cycle" through. In addition to this setting, you can also edit the Fader Settings for the "Events per group". The default is set to 5 and you may want to change this to 1, which tells the spud to only display 1 event at a time.
  21. I am not sure if you have tried this yet, but what happens if you change "openInNewWindow:"true"" to "openInNewWindow:"false"", so it would look similar to this sample code: <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ spudType: "main", webName: "kexp", openInNewWindow:"false", detailBase: "http://www.trumba.com/calendars/kexp"}); </script> If this still does not seem to fix the issue, please email me the URL of your site, or reply back to this post and we can research this one further for you. Thanks, Steve
  22. Deleting recurring event

    When you get yourself in to a situation like this, what has happened is that the events now become “orphans” as the owning calendar has been deleted, however the events were also tagged to “Also Show On” one or more calendars. When this happens, the events do not get deleted when the owning calendar is deleted as the events are still connected to one or more calendars. To correct this you can either open up each event one at a time (like you were doing) and remove the Also Shows On check marks, or follow these steps: 1. Open up one of these events within Trumba and you will see the Owning Calendar states it is owned by “Deleted Calendar”. 2. Directly below this area you will see the Also Shows On section and there will be one or more calendars checked in this list that you want to identify. Cancel out of the event so you are back to your Trumba editing environment. 3. Select one of the calendars that you identified in Step 2 so it appears with a black check mark, and uncheck all other calendars so no green check marks appear. 4. In the search field, type in either the event title or keywords from the event you want to remove and click Go. You should now see all of the events matching your search which are the events you want to remove from your calendar. 5. Change your editing view to “List” view and within this view, click Select All and all of the events on this page (up to 100 per page) will be automatically checked with a check mark. 6. In the drop down menu above the selections, select the option "Remove events from “<calendarname>” and then click Go. If you have several of these events in the past or in to the future, you will want to click the small arrows above the selection area to move forward/back and then repeat steps 5 and 6 until all of these events are removed.
  23. Trumba and Joomla

    Hi Joe, I rarely hear from Joomla users with issues, so you should be OK. There is another forum post on this subject that you may want to look at. I have also heard it works best to disable the editing environment in Joomla when adding in Trumba spuds as clients have reported having the editing environment enabled edits/changes the Trumba javascript code preventing the Trumba spuds from loading on pages. I have not used Joomla, so unfortunately I am not well versed, so any feedback from other Trumba users using Joomla is appreciated! One error I have been hearing about is the following error when attempting to view a HTML page created in Joomla 1.5x that contains Trumba spuds: HTML Parsing Error: "Unable to modify the parent container" error, (with a specific line in the code that is causing the error) when loading the main calendar spud in Trumba using Joomla 1.5x The solution was to go to libraries/joomla/html/html/behavior.php located under the Joomla install root and edit the line of code specified in the error message and you want to locate this line of code: $tooltipInit = ' window.addEvent(\'domready\', function(){ var JTooltips = new Tips($$(\''.$selector.'\'), '.$options.'); });'; Replace 'domready' with 'load' and it should eliminate the error so the Trumba spuds can load properly. That is all of the information we currently have on Joomla issues that are being reported. Thanks, Steve
