  1. I have a calendar and filter spud on my page. Currently, it only lists 2 categories when there are 3. The items included in the filter spud are from all 3 categories, but when I select the third category, no events display on the calendar when there are events on my calendar in the past and future that match this filter value.
  2. I have a test page with a couple promotion spuds. Using Chrome I can right click any of the images in the spud to inspect element and get the class name for the images, which is img.twPhotoScaled. I have added a style to my page: /*trumba thumbs*/ img.twPhotoScaled { -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 4px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.5) !important; -moz-box-shadow: 0px 4px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.5) !important; box-shadow: 0px 4px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.5) !important; } When I change the style in Chrome using the inspect element tool and doing it inline, it works fine. However, when I actually add the style to my file, it does not work. Is there something I can do to get this to work?
  3. Displaying information about an event on the event detail page is straight forward. All of the event fields that are on your event template get displayed when there is data for those fields. What if we do not want all of the fields to display on the event detail page? Example: You have a calendar which lists a bunch of events with a lot of info. So on the main calendar view, you have a List spud which shows a summary because you do not want to show all of the details. You also do not want to truncate the Description field on the main calendar view because it might not show all of the summary. What you want is to show the Summary field on the main calendar view, but show the Description field on the event detail page. You do not want to show both on the event detail page because it would be repetitive. Is there any plans to allow users to choose what fields to display on the detail page?
  4. Thanks Steve. Hopefully you guys will add it soon. all the best, Joe
  5. Hi Steve, I wanted to follow up with you about this. I know you guys now have the descending and ascending sort order, which is somewhat useful. However, have you guys given any thought to my original request? (to have the option to have the order determined by the date the event was added). The news spud works great for what you guys use it for. It shows the newest first and that works because the date of the news is the insert date. But I would like to be able to add events with a deadline of a certain date and have them posted in order of when they were added. I may add an event with a Decmber deadline and already have events with November and January deadlines. I still want it to show up top of the list because it was the most recently added. Users go to sites and look at the top article or headline. If it is the same as the last time they were there, they don't need to look any further. I can't do that with the current spuds. They would still have to look at the spud to see if there were events added. It would be very useful to have this option on the list spud. It would only take a sort by (insert or update) timestamp - very simple. thanks, Joe
  6. I guess this owuld be a request, but wanted to find out if it is something that is possibly already in the works. Currently, if you scroll down a calendar to an event and drill in, you go the the detail view. When you hit back on the browser or click the "Back to Calendar" link, it takes you back to the top of the page. That would be much better if you went back to the position on the page where you were when you clicked the event title. That way you could continue to browse from where you left off, rather that find where you left off. all the best, Joe
  7. There actually is a way to display only an image that has an embedded link to the event details screen. However, you can't rotate images. If you choose a "list" calendar spud and add featured levels for your events, you can choose "Image is Event Layout" as one of the featured level layouts. That will allow you to add all of your event details like you normally would, but will only display the image on the events calendar page. When you click the image, it will take you to the details screen. I have used this method in the past for displaying banners throughout my events calendar. Not sure if that will help you, but you could perhaps use this technique for your short term needs. all the best, Joe
  8. Awesome Steve, absolutely awesome. Thanks so much. Tell your team to keep up the great work... and have a great New Year! all the best, Joe
  9. Thanks Steve. That would be great. I think it would be very helpful and doesn't seem like it would be too difficult... hopefully. all the best, Joe
  10. Thanks for your reply Steve, but the permalink is not an option. I need something that is dynamic, not something I have to manually enter. What I need is the same as what is currently the norm for the promotion spud popup window i am attaching as an image. There is a "more info" link that is associated with each event. That link takes you to the detail view of that event. That is what I need to happen for my list view calendar. If there are more details than are not showing, I would like to be able to have a link that says: "more info" to take you to the event detail screen. It would be best if in the publishing control panel / calendar spuds / edit settings and styles for calendar views, that could be one of the field types you could choose from for each event type. A "more info" field, which would be a link to the event detail screen. Please let me know if this makes sense or if you have any questions. all the best, Joe
  11. Not sure if it is possible, but here we go. Each event title in a calendar is clickable and drills in to the event details for that event. Therefore, each event title passes the eventid. In my basic calendar: http://www.asingularcreation.com/list.htm I have events that are featured and events that are not. The ones that are not featured only display 200 characters from the notes field. So if the notes are more that 200 characters, what is displayed is the first 200, followed by "...", which implies that there is more. Is there any way I could add a link after the ... that would drill in to the detailed view by passing the eventid? thanks, Joe
  12. Thanks for your reply. I did know about the export function. I was wondering if deleted events were still kept in the databse for historical purposes. So I guess if I delete an event, I can't retrieve the submitter info for that event? thanks, Joe
  13. Hello. I was wondering if the email address of a person submitting an event through a Trumba form is stored in the main database table or a child table. If it is stored in a child table, how long are they stored? If they are stored in the same table as the event, if an event is deleted because it has passed, are the events permanantly deleted or soft deleted? The reason I am asking is because I would like to get an exported list of email addresses of people who have submitted an event to us in the past. all the best, Joe
  14. I see you have custom object support for $50 per month. I will contact Trumba Support to have this enabled on my account.
  15. Thanks for your reply Steve. all the best, Joe
  16. Hello all, I am thinking about moving my site to a CMS like Joomla. Is Trumba compatible with Joomla? thanks, Joe
  17. Hi Steve, I know I have already made a few enhancement requests for the password protected calendar feature, such as the ability to alter the text seen on the password required screen, and adding more fields, such as email and name. I would like to throw another one on to your list. It would be great to be able to have multiple levels of security for a given password protected calendar. No access: Would do exactly as it sounds. Limited access: Would allow users to see the calendar spud view, but not allow them to drill in to the event detail view. Full access: Would do exactly as it sounds. all the best, Joe
  18. I have a password protected calendar that I mix in events from other calendars. I use a promotion spud which contains the events from one of the mixed in calendars. I set the teaserBase of that spud to be the page of my password protected calendar, because I do not want people to get access to the full event details unless they sign up. That all works fine. However, I would like to remove the "ADD TO CALENDAR" link on the bottom of the popup spud so that they can not just add all the events to their calendar. Is that possible?
  19. Hi, Once you receive an email notification that someone has submitted an event to your "main calendar_submitted", open the event in Trumba and look on the top right side where the "Owning Calendar" information is. There is whhere you can change the calendar to which the event belongs to "main calendar". I hope this helps. Joe
  20. I moved my form to a different page and increased the size, so now it does show the entire form. So that is good. However, if you submit the form with not much filled out and click next, you are so far down, you do not see the info you are supposed to verify on the next screen. You have to scroll up. So if you never used the form, you wouldn't know what to do. It would be much better if when they clicked the "next" button, it would take them to the top of the form where they can verify. It would be the same as when you click the "next" button from the bottom of a calendar spud to get to the next group of events. It always takes you to the top of the page. And on a side note: It takes a bit of time to load because of my custom fields. Any reason why the submission form does not load with an "in progress" gif, similar to the ones used for the calendar, promotion and control spuds? It would definitely help to let people know that there is a form on the page, rather than close the page before it loads.
  21. Are there any plans to have a calendar registration feature, similar to the event registration? Expand the password protected calendar by requiring registration and/or payment prior to receiving the password.
  22. I definitely understand. One more thing that I forget to ask. Is filtering going to be allowed in submission forms eventually? What I mean by that is having the same trigger effect. Here is an example. I have a field in the submission form for Location Type, which has 3 choices: National, Regional and Local. If I select Regional, it would trigger another set of choices which would be one of the 5 regions of the country. But if I select Local, it would trigger a different set of choices, which would be one of the 50 states. thanks for all of your help. Joe
  23. Hi Steve, About filtering: any idea if there are plans to allow more that three filter spuds per calendar in the near future? all the best, Joe
  24. Hey Steve, I see that you guys added this functionality recently. I found this in the "What's New" section of Trumba: List of Choices Field Value Order - You can now enable a custom sort order sequence number on list of choices fields that allows you to specify the order of values when entering data or filtering events. Is there any documentation on this? thanks, Joe
  25. Thanks for the reply Steve. I may try putting the form on a separate page. Although, I would like it better if the user was placed at the top of the form after submitting. I think it is just a matter of putting an anchor at the top and having that be the location once "Next" is clicked. By the way, not sure if you saw my other post here: http://forums.trumba.com/index.php?showtopic=1824. None of my required fields other than than the submitter info is validating. All the others are being allowed to be blank. thanks, Joe
