  1. Load Times of Spuds slow compared to rest of my site

    Hmm from the looks of it you're using F5's BIG-IP services, which claim they offer "Intelligent Compression"...which is simple HTTP deflate.... Wonder how much they're charging for that service! (snicker) http://www.f5.com/reports/gomez_testing.pdf Oh well...ignore what I was saying earlier about gzipping. The rest still applies though.
  2. Load Times of Spuds slow compared to rest of my site

    Well my current workaround is to wrap the spud in an iframe, and that way the whole page renders first and then the iframe's content loads a second or two after (the spud). Perhaps you can implement this on your side of things?
  3. I recently upgraded the backend software that runs my site, and now I can easily tell that the trumba spuds are the slowest part of the page to load - like, the loading javascript blocks the rest of the page rendering on quite a few browsers. Perhaps you can borrow the way Google Adsense does it with their remote scripts - they are highly compressed (as well as use GZIP HTTP response compression over the wire, standard in browsers), have obfuscated source (SUPER compressed - look at this!!! http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js ), and they load blank so the page can finish rendering, and then the content of the javascript portion is rendered after the page has loaded completely. Compare that to the way Trumba does it: http://www.trumba.com/k.aspx?calendar=mass...coming&events=5 (non-gzipped HTTP response) Nice whitespace, sure, but if you GZIP'ed the HTTP response for this source code and obfuscated it like Google, I bet the events spuds could seriously get better performance on websites. I don't know how you could go about the delayed rendering stuff though.
  4. Page timeout on emailing large # of recipients

    ::shrug:: I'm already quite happy with Trumba's features right now, I was just exploring the other stuff I hadn't tried yet. No biggy.
  5. Can visitors submit events?

    I just noticed Trumba added event submission notification emails. I just got one in my email. Sweet! It looks like this: -------------------------------------------- FROM Trumba Event Submission <user.xxxxxx@trumba.com> TO Massachusetts Wrestling An event has been submitted to Wrestling Events » Tournaments » Submitted. NH Beach Wrestling State Tournamnet When Saturday, August 05, 2006 Where Hampton Beach Ocean Blvd Hampton, NH 03842 Notes blah blah removed for brevity in this example Submitted by XXXXX XXXXX (XXXXXX@nhwrestling.com). Clicking the event title will take you to the edit form for the event. Replies to this email will be forwarded to xxxxxxx@nhwrestling.com.
  6. Displaying Trumba calendar in SharePoint -YES!

    Just wondering, since SharePoint is a MSFT product, wouldn't it tie into Active Directory / calendaring system? I'm not to familiar with AD and whether or not central calendars are kept or if the calendars are client side only (in Outlook).
  7. Page timeout on emailing large # of recipients

    Ted told me this is probably far too large a list for you to support at this time and I shoul get an email mailing list package...which I have already, but I would have to send out weekly/monthly event listings by email by hand if I wanted to do this. Oh well. Sounded nice in theory, doesn't work for me in practice :/
  8. I have AdSense ads above my published/integrated calendar and as far as I can tell it is displaying relevant ads to my users...in fact it has increased clicks a bit even, I think. That particular placement generates enough revenue to cover the Trumba subscription pretty well.
  9. I just tried testing the "one-time-email" feature. I uploaded a CSV of over 3,000 email addresses (my site's member's email addresses), and then sent out a test of a "next two weeks" email. After trying to send it, the page eventually timed out. I'm guessing this is because not all the emails were sent to all the addresses in the proper amount of time needed before your IIS timeout is set for. Perhaps you'll want to spawn the email sending task as a new multi-threaded process so you track the status of how many emails have been sent without causing the page to timeout for large # of addresses? Thanks, Mike MassWrestling.com
  10. You could definitely parse/consume your own Trumba RSS feed into something search-engine friendly for your site.
  11. Can visitors submit events?

    No, it doesn't cost extra. My guess is that the feature is still "beta" technically, so I had to ask personally for instructions on how to set it up. And yes, it is possible to "proof" them, the way I have mine set up the events submitted by users end up on a "submitted" calendar. When I approve them, I move them to the "real" calendar, which is what I display on my site. I'm also guessing in the near future they will make this feature publicly (for paid accounts) available...in the meantime, ask for it.
  12. Can visitors submit events?

    It is! As far as I know the feature is only available for paying customers per request (they activate it for your account for you). I have it set up on my site, check it out ("submit your event") on the top right hand side of our site: http://www.masswrestling.com It works pretty great!
  13. flased based spuds

    On certain sites it's not allowed to embed things using javascript. Instead, you have to use flash objects, like YouTube does to stream video on MySpace webpages. My enhancement request is for flash-based spuds. I bet they could look real spiffy too!
  14. Calendar opens in same window ...

    Why not embed the calendar with an IFRAME and then set your truma_teaserBase to point to your embeded page? You can see this working on one of my sites that I publish my Trumba calendar on. http://usa.masswrestling.com More on this: http://forums.trumba.com/index.php?showtopic=495 http://forums.trumba.com/index.php?act=Sea...umba_teaserBase
