  1. The Location Search spud supports automatically detecting the visitor's location when searching for nearby events. This feature is enabled on mobile devices but can also be enabled for desktop computers. See the Location Search spuds help topic for more information.
  2. Trumba offers Google Drive integration (Link to Google Drive files). Here is a help topic with more details on how this works: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/attachments.aspx as Trumba users can attach Word docs, PDFs, etc by uploading those docs to their Google Drive and then linking to these within the Trumba event. Only images can be embedded with an event, while other non-image formats must be linked.
  3. Trumba offers Custom Font support for Adobe® Typekit, Adobe Edge Web Fonts, or Google Fonts.
  4. Trumba supports both Facebook and Disqus Comments. Here is a help topic with more details for you: on how to set this up within your account: https://www.trumba.com/help/publish/pub_facebookcomments.aspx
  5. We do offer these types of feeds: RSS, XML, CSV, iCal and JSON. What you can do is select the Published calendar from your Trumba account and then select the Publish button and then select the Feeds tab on the next page. From here you can see the feeds settings and each feed has Edit Settings & Styles that you can control the settings. Here is a link to help topic on how you can also customize the feeds. You can also export your calendars from Trumba out to an ICS or CSV format.
  6. Include HTML This setting is included with the following feeds: JSON, RSS, XML (Atom) and iCal. This setting allows HTML to be turned off in the feeds, and mainly for iCal feeds since programs like Outlook don’t recognize the HTML and display the HTML code instead of formatted text. The default feed setting is set to Yes. These settings can be found under Publish>Feeds tab and then Edit Settings & Styles for each feed. You can also override the default setting using the HTML URL parameter. For example https://www.trumba.com/calendars/concerts.rss?html=0 will output the RSS feed without HTML formatting. Valid values are true, 1, false, or 0. As a note, the RSS and XML (Atom) feeds don’t look very good in browsers if you turn off HTML because the text runs together without the line breaks so it’s probably best to leave the default as Yes for RSS and XML (Atom) feeds. Include Custom Fields in Notes Since most calendar programs that read the published iCal feed don’t recognize Trumba custom field properties in the iCal file there is need to include these values in body of the event along with the Notes field so they will show up in calendar programs that subscribe to the feed. The default is set to No for each published calendar, so you may want to edit the feed settings to Yes. These settings can be found under Publish>Feeds tab and then Edit Settings & Styles for the iCal feed. You can also override the default setting using the customnotes URL parameter. For example https://www.trumba.com/calendars/concerts.ics?customnotes=1 will output the iCal feed with custom fields in the notes.
  7. There is currently not a way to integrate or sync a Mail Chimp or other third party address book in Trumba. It would have to be manually imported into Trumba every time your Mail Chimp address book changes. I have added this feature enhancement to the feature request list and will keep you posted if there is any update.
  8. We also have functionality that allows you to change your calendar colors within the Trumba editing environment by changing the existing 24-colors that are in the default palette with specific HEX color values that you can specify. To the right of the calendar you can click the blue drop down arrow and then select Edit Colors. Here is a help topic with additional information: https://www.trumba.com/help/sml_pub_colorsee.aspx
  9. No update yet on the ability to add in the option for ascending order for the News view and not sure yet if/when they will be able to add in padding options. I will update this post once I hear more. Steve
  10. When you see RSS Feed Served within the Publisher Dashboard, this is based on the number of people/visitors that have subscribed to your RSS feed for a published calendar and the number of times the feeds have been sent to those subscribers. This does not mean these are unique visitors or subscribers. Within their RSS Readers, they can decide the frequency in which the feeds get refreshed/served to them. Sounds like some of them have set their frequency quite high causing your stats to be higher than expected. You may have a RSS feed for example that powers your mobile app. If the app is pulling the RSS Feed from your account once every 15-minutes looking for updates. This would come to 3,072 RSS feeds served over a 32 day period. These RSS Feeds also count as a Page View (which is what I think you mean as a “Promotion View” (?)), so each time data is pulled from the Trumba servers this does count towards your page views. So think of 3,072 as page views. Page Views occur anytime a site visitor loads a web page that has a main calendar spud; a promotion spud; event detail views (clicking on an event to see the details); pop-ups on any calendar or promotion spud; RSS feeds, XML feeds and iCal feeds.

  11. The HTML editor is available for Trumba Connect accounts only, not Trumba Professional accounts. All Trumba Professional account holders can continue to manually enter in HTML tags within multi-line text fields. Steve
  12. An HTML editor is available (for Trumba Connect accounts only) and you will see this for the Description field and other custom multi-line text fields within your Trumba account. This will make it easier for you and editors to add some basic HTML tags such as bold, italic, horizontal lines as well as embed and link images and more. MORE INFORMATION: How to use the HTML editor

  15. Trumba supports the creation of a wait list for event registration. When a wait list is created, the Trumba account holder can either manually invite others to register who are on the wait list when one or more seats open up for the event if an attendee cancels or the wait list can be set up to Auto-Invite. This option automatically invites people from a wait list instead of manually inviting them to register if one or more openings are available for your event. Here are a few help topics that go into a few more details on setting this up. SET UP EVENT REGISTRATION | MANAGE EVENT REGISTRATION RESPONSES
  16. If you have a mobile website designed for tablets and phones, you can easily create a version of your events calendar optimized for that site using the Mobile Table calendar view spud. The Mobile Table view has been pre-configured to display well on smaller mobile screens. But, as with other calendar views, you can customize the view to suit your specific needs. Here is a link to help topic for more details.
  17. When customizing colors in the Publishing Control Panel, a popup color picker lets you select from a palette of top used colors and specify color in HEX, RGB or HSV formats. You can even upload your own image and the color picker will display a custom palette of the top colors in the image. See Get the most out of the Color Picker for more information.
  18. Joe, The News view is designed to use descending order which is why the option for ascending. The News view does not allow ascending order as the News view is to show events by descending order only. As for padding between the title and the text, I can run this by our development team to see if this is a setting they can make. I will keep you posted. Steve
  19. Currently the Classic Table, List and Tile calendar views along with a the Photo Upcoming, Event Slider, and Upcoming Date table Promotion Spud allow you to control the fields that display. So on these views you can option show the Summary custom field and not the Description field. There is not an option currently to control the fields that appear on the event detail views. Currently all published fields will display on the Event Details page. You may want to also consider not creating a Summary custom field. Instead, you may be able to reserve and use the built-in Description field as your Summary. In the Description field, you may want to reserve the first 200 characters of the Description field as the "summary". On your calendar views you can then include the Description field and allow it to only display 200 characters, which would display the "summary" text. Then on the event details, you will see the full Description field, including the "summary" text.
  20. Trumba allows you to use your own custom registration icons for “Sign Up”, “Wait List” and “Event is Full” buttons. Because you customize buttons on a calendar-view-by-calendar-view basis, each view can use its own set of buttons if you like. NOTE: These calendar views do not support event registration buttons: Classic Month, Classic Multi-Week, News, Map, and Linear Grid. You are familiar with the default/basic registration buttons such as "Sign Up": You can enhance your calendar views and create a more visible registration button for Sign Up, Wait List and Event is Full. Here is an example of a custom sign up icon in use by the Classic Table calendar view: For additional information, please see our help topic on How to customize open registration buttons.
  21. Hi Joe, We currently do not offer support for that type of sorting, but it is on our feature request list so if there is an update to this I will be sure to reply back to this post. Thanks, Steve
  22. I am not aware of a way to delete events via an ICS import, however when you use an ICS file and the events have a unique identifier, they will update existing events. -Steve
  23. If you event template is set up with the pre-defined event image and/or detail image field and you have added images to your images table within Trumba, you can quickly find an existing image and add it to an event or object by searching for the image by all or part of its name. Check out the online help topic for more details.
  24. You can publish different views of the same calendar on different pages of your website. All you have to do is embed, on each page where you want a new view, a slightly modified version of the main calendar spud code. To modify the code, add a url argument that uses a template parameter to specify the view. <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "name", url: {template: "viewname" }, spudType: "main"}); </script> Where it says "name", your calendar's unique web name for the published calendar appears. You can find the template parameter's "viewname" values here. For example, if you want to publish a calendar using the 3 Columns view, replace "viewname" with "3columns". To customize the main spud code and publish an alternate view In the Publishing Control Panel, on the Calendar Spuds tab, under Main Calendar Spud, copy the main calendar spud script code. Paste the code into a webpage where you want to publish the calendar with a different view. Modify the code you just pasted by adding a URL argument (as shown in the example above). For "view name," provide the name of the calendar view template name you want to use. Preview the page to make sure the code works and that you see the intended view.
  25. By default, event links in promotion spuds point to the version of your calendar hosted on trumba.com. You can easily change where event links point by putting the URL for your own calendar page into the Calendar Address field in Publish Settings. Updating the Calendar Address field affects more than just spuds. It also means that visitors who click event links in your calendar emails and RSS feeds will jump to the calendar on your website. To update a calendar's address Copy the URL for the page on your website where the main calendar spud is embedded. Tip Be sure to include the http:// or https:// portion of the URL. In your Trumba account, confirm that the published calendar you want to update is selected with a black check mark and click Publish. In the Publishing Control Panel, on the Publish Settings tab in the Publish Settings section, click Edit Publish Settings. For Calendar Address, paste the URL that you copied in step 1 and Click OK. Tip The calendar address URL must include http:// or https:// or it won't work. To see and test how promotion spuds respond to your calendar address updates, return to the Publishing Control Panel. Click the Promotion Spuds tab. The spud script now contains the teaserBase argument. As shown below, the value for that argument is the URL you pasted into the Calendar Address field. <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud ( { webName: "yourcalwebname", spudType: "upcoming", teaserBase: "URL for your calendar page" }); </script> To test where each promotion spud's event and other links take you, click Preview. Copy the updated promotion spud script that is displayed and replace the original script on your live website.
