  1. If you create a calendar that contains the advocacy days meeting events, you can send out a one-time or scheduled calendar email message that contains all future or some time period's worth (for example, 2 weeks' or a month's worth) of these events to people on a distribution list. Recipients of the email can click icons beside the event descriptions to add events they're interested in to their Outlook calendars. You can learn more in this Help topic: Sending events by email
  2. If you actually want the event detail view to open in a page on your site, you want to use the detailBase rather than the teaserBase property on the Main calendar spud. The teaserBase URL is more commonly used on Promotion spuds. So your spud code would like this using the detailBase and not teaserBase: <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "asingularcreation", spudType : "main", detailBase: "http://www.asingularcreation.com/Lists/art-contests.htm" }); </script> You use the detailBase property with a main spud to show event details in another main spud that's embedded in a separate page. NOTE: The teaserBase property works with promotion spuds and allows you to open the event details page from a link in the promotion spud on your own site rather than the Trumba hosted page. You might also want to use the openInNewWindow property to get the event detail to open on your site in a new window. The code would look like this: <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "asingularcreation", spudType : "main", openInNewWindow: "true", detailBase: "http://www.asingularcreation.com/Lists/art-contests.htm" }); </script> MORE INFORMATION: Supported properties for customizing spuds.
  3. Two other calendar views, List and Table, now support images. These two views do allow you to set grouping and paging options, as you requested above. In the Publishing Control Panel, on the Calendar Spuds tab, add the List and/or Table calendar views and then click Edit Settings & Styles to display the image field and control the image size. For the Classic Table view you will first need to add in the Event Image field under the Display Settings area on the General Settings tab and determine the placement in order of preference. Trumba also supports the display of Inline Images, which are images you can embed in the Notes field and any other Multi-line text field that uses the HTML Editor (Trumba Connect accounts only). Inline images are supported in some calendar views (Classic Table and List view) as well as on the event detail view.
  4. What a user can do is subscribe to an iCal feed from your published calendar. The maximum number of events in a feed is 1000 and the publish controls the number of events in the feeds by clicking on Publish>Feeds tab and then click on Edit Settings & Styles for each feed type. When the site visitor visits your calendar, they can select the Subscribe link at the top of your calendar and from here select the iCal Subscription. This will appear with webcal://protocol.
  5. Here's a workaround you might use when you have events that do not have a specific start/end time. Set the event as an All Day event. Then no start or end time shows up. In the Description field of the event, add a note about the start time to let people know when it starts.
  6. If you publish calendars that site visitors often want to print, it's a good idea to set up a print view. Set-up options include adding a banner image to the top of print view, showing the calendar name in the header, and showing the print date/time in the footer. Here is a link to our Help topic on how to set up a print view that includes an image.
  7. When you type an address in the Location field and then select add map link, Trumba will remember this location. When you go to add a new event, or edit an existing event, you can select Recent Links to the right of the Location field. This will be a list of 50 of the most recently mapped locations. By selecting a location from this list will add in the address in the Location field and automatically map the location. You can remove any old or outdated map link by selecting the drop down and click the X next to the address.
  8. You might also want to try using divs instead of a table to line up your spuds. For example to line up a main calendar spud and search spud, you might use two divs like this: <div style="width:160px;float:left"> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "yourcalendarswebname", spudType : "mix" }); </script> </div> <div style="width:160px;padding-left:180px;"> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "yourcalendarswebname", spudType : "searchlabeled" }); </script> </div> Where it says yourcalendarswebname just make sure your calendar's name is inserted. You don't have to stick with the exact width or padding amounts that I've added here but this gives you an idea of how you might set up the divs.
  9. You can only share Trumba calendars with other Trumba users whose email address is tied to a Trumba account. You are seeing Can view events as the only option because the person you're sharing with does not have a Trumba account. When you purchase a full Trumba subscription, you can also purchase additional editor accounts for a reduced monthly rate (see our Pricing page). When the person you want to share with has an account in place, you'll be able to see all sharing options.
  10. When you create a new calendar, we do not allow the calendar settings to be copied. However, if you plan to publish multiple calendars that share most of the same published settings and styles, you can copy these settings and styles from one publication to others. Here is a link to a help topic with more details.
  11. Hi dtsipian. We are in the near future. Actually, the ability to do more customization on your calendar and other spuds has been available in Beta for a couple of weeks (explained here). The features should go live as real non-Beta features later today. Connie
  12. Hi Roderick. Thanks for posting to the forums. If I'm understanding you correctly, you can do what you want by adding some arguments to the embedded code for the calendar. You can find a description of the arguments in How the spud code works and how to customize it. The spud code in the Help topic might look a little different from the code you're used to. We're switching to new (improved) code and it won't hurt to begin using the new code on pages on your site, even if other pages use the old code. (You can see how the new publishing model works by turning on Beta features for your published calendars. For more information, see How to enable your account to test beta features.) Here's an example of how your calendar spud code might look. In this example, you're embedding a calendar with the webname "ajenza" pre-filtered for events that are taught by a specific instructor (one of the values listed in an Instructor filter you created): <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud( { webName: "ajenza", spudType: "main", url: { filter1: "Master Wu"} }); </script> You can also use arguments to filter the events that display to events from one specific calendar that you have mixed in. You can learn more about the mix argument here. This topic describes URL parameters but you can also use the parameters as arguments in spud code, as the example above shows. Hope this is what you were looking for. Connie
  13. Trumba does offer an HTML editor for the built-in Description field as well as any of the other multi-text custom fields. This feature is available for Trumba Connect customers.
  14. To change the label for the Calendar List Control Spud, select your published calendar in Trumba and select Publish>Control Spuds tab. Locate the Calendar List and select Edit Settings & Styles. You will now see the Label field where you can type in your own label or remove the existing label and leave it blank.
  15. This can be setup in Trumba using a custom field that is a list of choices. Here is a help topic on how to create Custom Fields: https://www.trumba.com/help/filter/fieldshow.aspx.
  16. What you can do is paste the code below above the script code for the date finder spud but replace yourcalendarwebname with the webname of your published calendar (the name you chose when you published the calendar). <script type="text/javascript">var trumba_teaserBase = "http://www.trumba.com/calendars/yourcalendarwebname";</script> When you click a date on the Date finder spud, the calendar hosted on the Trumba website opens to the time period that contains the clicked date.
  17. You can add a link to the event details for a specific event. On your published calendar, click an event title to open the event details page for that event. In the lower right corner on the event detail view click the Permalink and a small window will appear with the URL that you can copy. MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/publish/pub_viewsdetails.aspx
  18. There are a few print settings you can make. On the Publisher account, select your calendar and select Publish>Calendar Spuds tab and then select Edit Settings & Styles for the Main Calendar Spud. Select the Print View tab. You will be able to add an image; show the calendar name as well as show the print date/time.
  19. If you would like your published calendars to have a colored background and/or change the link and link hover colors, when you publish the calendar, select Publish>Publish Settings tab and then select Edit Calendar Colors If you would like to allow each mixed-in calendar have a background color or link and link hover colors, change this setting to Yes.
  20. If the Club Events calendar is a sub-calendar, the easiest thing to do is to published that sub-calendar and then you can embed the code for the Club Events on the Club Events webpage.
  21. When using the Main calendar spud, there is not an easy way to only show a limited date range worth of events. When you publish a calendar, all of the events are published. If you add the events for the period that you want to publish - September in your case - to another calendar, you can then publish that other calendar. You can then move events from one calendar to another when you are ready for more events to be displayed on the published calendar. To add a group of events from one calendar to another, create the new calendar that you want to add the events to. Display the original calendar in List view. Select the events that you want to add to the new calendar. From the drop-down list, select Add events to.... Select the new calendar from the calendars list, and then click Go. Then, publish the new calendar that contains the events you just added. What can also do is use a Promotion Spud, as Promotion Spuds do have more settings that allow you to set a Start Date and End Date in which the application will scan to only display events that land within the timeframe.
  22. Hi again Robert. I discovered that I didn't give you complete information in my earlier reply about when you see the exclamation point on an event in your published calendar. You see the exclamation point if you have the Display updates option set to yes and you update either the event description or date. Just wanted to make sure my answer was complete. Connie
  23. You see symbols, also known as update markers, on calendar events when the events have been updated. For example, you see an asterisk for a new event; an exclamation point next to an event on your published calendar after you change the event description; and you will see a little clock next to an event on your published calendar when you change the event time. You can let visitors know when you update your calendar by enabling update markers. An asterisk indicates a new event. An exclamation point and dashed underline indicate change in the event field that is underlined. This can be a change in the description or date (without a change in the event time). An exclamation point with nothing underlined generally means that the event description has been changed. A clock symbol and dashed underline of date and time indicates change in event time (with or without a change in the date) Here is a link to the help topic with more details on how to disable these markers: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/newupdated.aspx
  24. Hi again Robert. Thanks very much for pointing that out. I just talked to the developer, and when you click None under a filter, you should see no events on the calendar. I'll get the bug filed and we'll get that fixed so you should see a change in that behavior soon. Thanks again and sorry for the inconvenience. Connie
  25. Hi Joe. Thanks for your question. The crawler doesn't exactly have a header in the same way that the Upcoming Events spud does. Here is how an Upcoming events spud looks with a header: Here is how an Upcoming events spud looks with no header (or footer or border, in this case): And here is how the crawler looks on a web page: There is no equivalent header on the crawler to hide. Does that help or did I misunderstand your question? Thanks. Connie
