  1. There is a setting that will control whether or not recurring events continue to display on your calendar and that is the setting titled "Include events that started in the past.". If you go to Publish>Calendar Spuds tab, you will want to click Edit Settings & Styles for your calendar views and ensure this option is checked.
  2. Hi Joe, The dev team is aware of the event submission form issue where it does not scroll back to the top of the next page to review the event submission. This is on the list of features to enhance, however they have quite a few other feature enhancements that have a higher priority at this time. Also, I added your request for an loading progress icon to appear as well as the event submission form loads. Once I hear more on these requests I will be sure to let you know. Thanks, Steve
  3. This issue appears to be the “document.getElementById” in the addSpud code. You are trying to reference the earlier <input> elements at the beginning by ID but the input elements only have a name property and not ID. If you can change the highlight “name” to “id” then it should work. <input type="hidden" name="trumbaname" value='cape_ann' /> <input type="hidden" name="hotelid" value=2646 /> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script>'>//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: document.getElementById('trumbaname').value, spudType: "upcomingvcrawler", teaserBase: "http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id="'>http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id="'>http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id="'>http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id=" + document.getElementById('hotelid').value, detailBase: "http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id=" + document.getElementById('hotelid').value }); </script> Change to: <input type="hidden" id="trumbaname" value='cape_ann' /> <input type="hidden" id="hotelid" value=2646 /> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: document.getElementById('trumbaname').value, spudType: "upcomingvcrawler", teaserBase: "http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id=" + document.getElementById('hotelid').value, detailBase: "http://www.dotcomcierge.com/calendar.asp?id=" + document.getElementById('hotelid').value }); </script>
  4. At this point I can say there are no plans to have this type of feature, however I will submit it to the development team as a feature request to see if this would be considered. In the meantime the only way to do this would be for you to create a registration page that a visitor needs to sign up for/or make a payment, etc, and once they create an account you can send them the password to allow them access to your calendar.
  5. Hi Sanjeev, I had our dev team look this over and they pointed out a potential syntax error in the code. Try this and if this does not work, please send us a link to the page and our dev team can research further for you. <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webname: document.getElementById('trumbaname').value, spudType: "upcomingvcrawler", teaserBase : "http://university.trumba.com/online_calendars/main_month.aspx" }); </script> Thanks! Steve Trumba Support
  6. Hi Celeste, Sorry - we currently do not offer a way to customize the header when there are no upcoming events. Another option for you is to look at a few other Promotion Spuds that appear blank when there are no events to display. These promotion spuds can be used and setup to appear blank: Day Summary Upcoming Vertical Crawler Upcoming Grouped Upcoming Preview If you do use one of these you can also go to the Styles tab and hide the footer ("See All"). I hope this helps! thanks, Steve
  7. To add an image to the Hosted view only if you are using the Trumba Hosted Calendar page instead of embedding the spud code within your HTML pages. Here are the steps to add an icon/image to your Hosted Calendar view. 1. Publish your calendar and then click on the Hosted View tab at the far right. 2. Click Edit Settings & Styles 3. Select New for the Photo or logo field to locate and attach your logo. 4. Click OK. Note: The image you select is limited to a width of 170px and it will appear in the upper left corner of the Trumba Hosted calendar page.
  8. Hi Joe, I went gone ahead and submitted this as a feature request on your behalf Thanks, Steve
  9. We have just released a few new features and you now have the ability to customize the “See All” text that appears beneath a promotion spud. To customize this text you can click Edit Settings & Styles for the Promotion Spud and locate the Display Options section: By default we display “ See All »” so the default value you will see listed is: “See all »” (“»” = the '»' character). You can change the label to “See All Events” for example or “See All Events »” (which would display as “See All Events»”), etc. Thanks, Steve
  10. At this time there are no plans to increase the number of filtered levels from three, mainly due to the performance issues that could result from this change. Thanks, Steve
  11. You can enable a custom sort order sequence number on the List of Choices fields that allows you to specify the order of values when entering data and/or filtering events. To change the order, go to Define Custom Fields and edit the custom field(s) that are part of your List of Choices and you will now see the option for Custom Sort Order. Edit each value and give each value a number. Here is the link to the help topic. Calendars cannot be listed with a custom sort order and will display in alphabetical order.
  12. What you can do is place the main calendar spud in a new section of your search results page. You can dynamically pass the search keywords into the “addSpud” javascript call so that the spud will display events matching the keywords. You can search your site using Google search then pass in the same search string to the “url: { search: <searchStr> }” parameter to the TrumbaAddSpud javascript call.
  13. Hi, I did some additional research on the WordPress.com Support Forum and found that Javascript and flash aren't allowed, for security reasons. We would like to hear from anyone that has had success with this. thanks, Steve Trumba Support
  14. The current setting for your iCal feed may be set with the default settings that only show a maximum number of events of 100 with a start date of "Current week" and an end date of "Current week + 5 weeks". If you click on Publish, then select the Feeds tab go ahead and click Edit Settings & Styles for the iCal feed (you may want to repeat these steps for RSS and Atom feed as well). You can change the Start date and End dates, as well as the maximum number of events to display.
  15. Hi Joe, Have you tried changing the height of the event submission form on your page? It is currently "height: 775", however it is hard to know what the height should be as you will no idea how long the submission will be based on the contents of the Notes field. I see you have some instructions below the form and you may want to put these instructions within the event submission form, possibly in the Before Submitter Section. Another idea would be to place the event submission form within a DIV tag or iFrame and possibly use scroll bars? Let me know if that will work for you. Thanks, Steve
  16. While our development team likes the idea and sees potential, they would like me to get some additional information from you on how you (and others) see this potentially working with the events in Trumba. Feel free to send us scenarios, links to other sites, etc. Trumba displays events on a calendar based on the start date of the event. If you have an ongoing event, like an art exhibition, I can see where a user rating system could work. Is that the type of events you have in mind? If there is a one-time event on the calendar, let's say it starts on May 1, 2009 by the time a user adds a comment or ranks the event they would have had to attend the event first and by that time the event will no longer display as an event on the calendar unless the user goes "back in time" to view the event. We are trying to better understand the usefulness of this if that is the use case scenario for this feature? Or is the scenario where you want to allow visitors to your site the option of looking at all of the events you have listed in the future and have a way of saying "I was at this event last year and highly recommend it!". Then the more people that recommend a specific event it gets 5 stars, etc?
  17. The spud code that Trumba generates does not have specified width/height as the code instead will conform to the width/height of the container it is embedded. Within Trumba you can go to the Publishing Control Panel and preview the various spuds. The previews of each spud will show you the width in pixels and you can resize the preview page to determine the width that will work best for you and then on your webpage, make the width of that container (table) match this width and drop in the spud code.
  18. There are a few ways that you can do this. One way is to select the event in Trumba and then select the Event Registration tab. From here you will see the registration details for this event along with the option to "Export Registration Data" as a CSV file. Another option is to select "Registration Report" under "Other Tasks", which you will find listed on the main Trumba interface page below your calendar listing on the left part of the screen. You can select the Calendar from the drop down menu and then specify a date range and then either run a report or download as a CSV file. This report will show you all event registration data for all events for the specified calendar. If you have a Trumba account you can also use our API and run a Registration Feed: http://www.trumba.com/help/api/regservicefeeds.aspx
  19. With any custom field that you create, it can either be published (appear with the event) or hidden. There currently is not a way to have a custom field display both ways. Instead of creating a custom field called Summary, hopefully you can use the built-in Description field and treat this as your Summary field, or you can continue to use your Summary custom field, then just remember to not enter any text in the Description field.
  20. By default the Description field will display all of the text when you view the Event Details from a published calendar. If you are referring to the character limit for the Description field when viewing a calendar, there is a default of 10,000 characters for the Description field. When viewing the Classic Table view, the default is to display 1,000 characters, however this can be increased/decreased by selecting Edit Settings & Styles for the Classic Table calendar view on the Calendar Spuds tab.
  21. We recommend keeping your account with bluehost.com, this way when you create your website and webpages you can embed the Trumba spud (javascript) code within your own HTML pages. Within Trumba you can customize the styles and settings for each of the spuds so it becomes "branded" with the look and feel of your site. With your Trumba subscription, we do host your data. So all of your event information is stored on our servers and the spud code embedded on your site makes calls to our servers to display the spuds and events. We also do provide a complimentary Hosted calendar page for every published calendar. While limited in the spuds it can display and the layout options, it is useful for customers who do not have the ability to embed the spud code within their own webpages and instead just link to the hosted view provided by Trumba. Here is a link to a help file that goes in to a little more detail on publishing a calendar from Trumba.
  22. Event Mail, which includes the Announcement, 1st Reminder and 2nd Reminder is intended to be used if you have set up an event and you would like to send the event information to a group of people on a distribution list to promote an event. If visitors have already registered for an event and you have created a custom registration form, you have the option of making sure people who register receive an email confirmation about their registration. In addition, on the Event Email tab, you have the option of having the system sent a 1st and 2nd reminder to only confirmed registrants: When a visitor registers for the event, they are presented with the option of having an email reminder sent to them "x" days before the event starts.
  23. At this time we only support emails sent in HTML format. regards, Steve
  24. While some editor accounts are able to create calendars within their accounts, they cannot publish these calendars. If you have an editor that needs to publish a calendar you will want to convert the Editor account to a Publisher account. The Editor accounts are available for users who only need to add, delete and change events. If calendars need to be created that will be published, you want to create these on the Publisher account and then share the calendars with the Editors and give the Editor the right to Add, Delete and Change events.
  25. The code you're using looks correct. I tested your code on IE7 by pasting it into a local .htm file. When I opened that file, I had to "allow blocked content" because I hit an address-bar warning message about ActiveX controls. After that, it loaded fine, I could see the spud and the events OK. So you might want to check your browser security settings to make sure it allows activex controls.
