Linking to a specific mixed in calendar in an embedded calendar

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to link to a specific mixed-in calendar of an embedded calendar?


I have an embedded calendar with several mixed-in calendars. From a promotional spud on another page for one of the mixed-in calendars, I can link back to the embedded calendar to show the event detail. However, whether through the promotional spud's built in footer or my own machinations, I can't seem to get a link back to the embedded calendar showing just the one mixed-in calendar.


I've read about URL parameters (http://www.trumba.com/help/api/urlparameters.html) and I know that you can create such a link for a hosted calendar or use code in the page embedding the calendar to do this. But I don't seem to be able to create such a link when linking to an embedded calendar. Am I missing something, or can this just not be done?


I realize I could just publish and embed the specific calendar I'm after and link to that page. :blink: I'm just trying to avoid having to maintain several different pages with embedded calendars.

Hi Evan,

I've been messing around with this, and although you can find the mix-in state of a calendar and display the calendar in the state you want, it doesn't look like you can link from a promotion spud showing the default mix-in state to a main calendar spud in a non-default mix-in state. (huh?)


If you wanted to display your promotion spud in the same mix-in state as your calendar, you could use the procedure described in this post:

Find the value for the mix-in state and set a spud to it. You would set your spud and calendar to the same state.


You can also use the same mix parameter to create links on your page that jump to the main calendar in a particular mix-in state. Here are also some topics that talk about creating URLs with parameters that display your spud in a particular configuration:

Display filtered view of calendar

Display calendar with search results


I hope this helps get you started. If I'm not understanding what you want to do, or if I can clarify anything, let me know.
