  1. I miss the good ol' days when the community forum was really a community . . .

  2. I've come across a number of sites that allow users to post comments relating to events. I want that feature, too!
  3. Rich text editor or WYSIWYG

    I don't have access?
  4. Facebook

    The FB share option is kinda cool, except not all customized fields are populated in the event that is created. And, actually, I'm less interested in creating a "Facebook event" and more interested in posting the "Trumba event" information to my wall. Currently, when I post the event permalink to my wall, it's pretty bland because the event image isn't included. Is it possible to change that?
  5. Facebook

    Thanks, Steve! Your reply suggests that images should also post when sharing on FB. My images have never posted. Is this a work in progress?
  6. Also, with recurring events, you could make the opening night and closing night featured events and have seperate categories for "opening" and "closing". That would allow you to set up other spuds just for openings and closings.
  7. You're right - I forgot about that! (I use the performance schedule option on my theater page, but the default view is list.) You can try using the list view and set it to display only the events for the current day. That's the only solution that comes to mind right now.
  8. Custom Objects

    It looks like the cost is $50 monthly.
  9. Facebook

    Thanks, Steve - but note that I'm not referring to a FB event, I just want to be able to post to my wall and include my permalink that will also allow me to include an image and the event text. Currently, a posted hyperlink includes no event text, rather the following displays: "To-Dos!http://soleilstodos.com/newtodos.htm?tru...Your browser must support JavaScript to view this content. Please enable JavaScript in your browser settings then try again. 1 of 19Choose a ThumbnailNo Thumbnail" The only available thumbnails are from my site, rather than the detail image or event image. Adding an item as a FB event is hardly better. Not only is insufficient detail/image included with the event posting, but I'm required to take a second step to post it to my wall when all I want is to post the Trumba event to my wall (i.e., I'm not interested in creating a FB event). If you browse my wall at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Soleils-To-Dos/64781457722, you'll see how a FB application allows my RSS feed to post events to my wall. This is the same effect that I'd like to accomplish by posting my permalink.
  10. Sorry to interrupt, but I'm a Giant lover, too! Me and my girlfriend Grace (sometimes dis-Grace) Soleil! Unfortunately, you can only get SKUM schedule to appear in the subject line of the email messages by naming your calendar SKUM schedule. Here's another option. Would you be any more comfortable having the From line say SKUM calendar? If you name the calendar SKUM calendar, the preview and the email will show SKUM calendar in the subject line and SKUM calendar will appear in the From line. Or choose any other calendar name that you would be comfortable seeing in both the From and subject line. Maybe SKUM events? Sorry you can't control those two lines separately. Connie
  11. Event Listings

    I wrote a little while ago about including a feature that allows users to comment on and rank events (which is a common feature with other event calendars). Any movement on this?
  12. Event Listings

    I think the option would be nice both with ongoing events and single day events. In the case of ongoing, yes - they might give some sort of review. But, even with single day events, a user browsing the calendar might see something interesting coming up and might want to comment about it, e.g., sounds cool, I love this group, etc. It could be similar to the options you have in Facebook (comment, like, show feedback). Goldstar (www.goldstar.com) also provides a lot of options for user interaction. You might have to create an account to take a look. Also, their share on Facebook seems to automatically populate the Facebook fields (including the event image).
  13. Is it possible to get an option in the event submission form that will allow option to have image "float" left or right? Currently, the image is inserted as a new column, which causes poor text formatting.
  14. Is anyone using a calendar or promotion spud to display opening and closing dates for extended-duration events? For theater, art exhibits and other events with a duration of at least 3 weeks, I'm trying create calendars that show upcoming opening dates and upcoming closing dates. For these types of events, I set-up a recurring event (weekly or daily recurrence). For the first week of the recurrence, I include the event on the Theater calendar (for example), and also on the Openings calendar. During the last week, I include it on the Closings calendar. I've tried using the Upcoming Events promotional spud to display Openings in one spud and Closings on another, but using this method will show each individual Closing date as a separate listing, rather than grouping them together. So, I tried a calendar spud, selected the Openings calendar for one spud and Closings calendar for another and used the Performance schedule view. This actually works pretty well, except that I cannot control the dates displayed. Using the promotional spud, I can choose to display events coming up within the next 7 days, which is the option I would like to be able to control by using the performance schedule. If you take a look at my home page, www.so-LAZE.com, you may get a better idea of what I'm attempting to describe! If anyone can provide me with examples of how you've handled this, I'd sure appreciate it!
  15. Sorry - Maybe I should have referred to the "Add Event" page on Trumba. What I'm looking for is text wrapping in the event detail view. So, currently, we have an option to position the event detail image to the center, left or right, but we do not have the option to wrap the text around the image in the event detail view. Rather, the image appears in a separate column, frequently leading to awkward paragraph formatting. I had the same issue with including the map in the event detail, which is why I no longer include it.
  16. I've got a ton of stored images and would love to delete some of them. It would be real helpful if a field for the date of last use was included on the manage image page so that I'd know which images are appropriate to delete. To expedite the process of deleting images, it would also be helpful to be able to sort images by name, date and size and to be able to select multiple items for deletion. Alternatively, maybe Trumba could automatically delete any images that haven't been used for a year. Any plans for something like this?
  17. I downloaded and event from another subscriber's calendar and event details were automatically included. How do I make sure that the contents from my "Description" field are included when an event is downloaded to a calendar?
  18. Add Event to Personal Calendar

    Sorry for the delay in following up with this. I'm referring to adding an event to my outlook calendar. I've added various customized fields to my event form. When I add an event to my outlook calendar, the only thing I get in the "new appointment" is the description/title in the subject field, the address, time and web link (in the "notes" area along with "Added by Trumba Event Actions"). I'd like to be able to determine which other fields (customizable and standard fields) are included.
  19. In my Constant Contact newsletters, I'd like to include links to event detail pages for specific events, rather than a general link to the page on which my calendar is embedded. Is there a way to accomplish this?
  20. Event Links

    Am I missing something or should "permalink" really be labeled "tempalink"? Two days ago, the permalink worked fine in my current draft newsletter with constant contact. Today, the tempalink takes me to the event listing page, rather than the event detail.
  21. I spent hours (at least four!) last night formatting my constant contact e-mail to send to my distribution list. I used to use Trumba's e-mail, but it's far too limiting. I suggested that Trumba partner with Constant Contact to provide more adequate e-mail delivery service, but that hasn't happened. I can't imagine that I'm reinventing the wheel with this, but I first have to copy the events that I want to circulate, paste them into word; replace each "..." (which isn't recognized by Constant Contact) with a "[more]" link that takes readers to my website; replace each headline hyperlink (which is a javascript link that will not work in CC); paste the reformatted list into CC (at which point the formatting may or may not hold, but the photos definitely disappear); then I have to move between my website and CC, dragging photos from my site to CC. HOURS!!!!!!! Can someone please tell me a better way?!?! Here is a link to the most recent final product: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs085/1...2116145763.html
  22. Is it possible to customize the layout of the feed - the order, blank fields, etc.?
  23. Thanks, Steve - I'll give that a try. The larger images are used for my feature level that I call "Sponsor To-Dos." It allows for a more prominent display by using the event "plugger" on the event listing page. I have a 600px width limit so that the image fills the same width as the standard event listings.
  24. Most internet users habitually use the "back" button to return to a previous screen. Even though I have been using Trumba for several years, I still occassionally press "back" instead of the link for "Back to [your website]". Doing this takes me away from the page in which the Trumba calendar is embedded and can be quite frustrating. Is there a way I can set up the event links so that when you click on the headline, it opens in a new window? This way, the event listing page remains as a "placeholder" and the user can simply close the event detail window and continue browsing the other listings.
