  1. Hi all

     

    I am running multiple calendars for our community. I want to create a featured events calendar to put on the front page of our website.

     

    This calendar will haev a phot in each event, and will include events that go over multiple days or even weeks.

     

    I need a calendar spud view that will;

    1. Show the photo

    2. Only display the event once on the screen, not repeating to display it for the multiple days

    3. Allow truncation of the notes - say 200 characters (allow user to click on it for full details)

     

    Any help would be most appreciated (I can do point 1) :)


  2. Hi Steve

     

    I dont receive an error message. My issue is this;

     

    1. I preview my weekly email and change the text that appears at the top of the calendar.

    2. Whilst performing 1. Ieach week I will notice that approx 30 new people have subscribed to our email. I keep the distrubution list tidy by having all people added to a distribution group. This way I see all the new email addresses on the left hand side of the email edit window, below my single distribution group.

    3. I then click on the link to edit the group, with the intention of adding all these new subscribers to the group.

    4. I open the edit group window, and see all the new subscribers in the window on the left.

    5. I scroll through this list on the left, manually selecting the checkbox next to every email address (this is where I need a select all option)

    6. I then click the button add to group

    7. The page waits for about 15 secs

    8. The page refreshes having only added some addresses, or none at all. No error is displayed

    9. I then manually start selecting the new subscribers again, a few at a time and hitting the submit button.

    10. By selecting only a few at a time they add correctly.

    11. This takes a long time and is a horrid job.

     

    Sorry for the "sucking eggs" report but I'm trying to paint the picture for you as to exactly what I'm doing here.

     

    If it helps I will record and post on you tube?

  3. Just to ask for an update on this topic please.

    I have about 30 new people per week subscibe to our email newsletter.

    To add them to our distribution group, I edit the group, and have to manually tick every new user.

    This si a real pain - why dont we have a "Select All" option

    Also, I keep getting errors when ticking the emails and trying to add them.

    I have to resort to only selecting one or two addresses at a time, then clicking "Add to Group"

    This process has been buggy for over a year now and needs to be fixed please.

     

    A response for this one would be appreciated.


  4. Hi Jill

     

    When editing a distribution list, I am presented with a window with 2 side by side boxes. The right box lists all the current members of the list. The left box lists all members of the address book who are not on the list. This includes people who have subscibed to my weekly email.

     

    I regularly add these people to my distribution list. To do this I have to edit my list then tick every box for every member in the left windo. It would be helpful if there was an option which said "select all"

  5. Hi

     

    Im a bit confused in adding and removing addresses from the address book and distribution lists.

     

    If I add an address to a dist group, it adds to the address book. If I remove it from the address book, it remains in the dist list. If I remove from the dist list, it remains in the address book.

     

    Behaviour I'd expect is when deleting from the address book, that it removes from all dist lists.

     

    Please advise if a bug or if Im using incorrectly.

     

    Cheers

  6. Hi guys

     

    I've been reviewing the posts on the new spuds, and some excellent examples already out there.

     

    But I cant use many of the list views. They dont work.

     

    Why?

     

    The date format is back to front for me and half the western world ;)

     

    Please treat this as a priority. Even if you change all the formats to Jul 05 2006.

     

    I have wanted to use many of the views available, but am basically limited to the 5 week or month views.

     

    Are there any other non US users out there experiencing this issue too?

     

    Cheers

     

    Kevin

    (PS - Love Trumba :D... but fix the dates ;) )
