"Click throughs" on Calendar Spud not working

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

I am super new and thus this might be a really silly question, so perhaps I should apologize up front! But I have tried to solve this problem on my own to no avail:

 

I recently published my calendar spud to my typepad blog https:///www.yalegalleryguides.typepad.com - when I try to click on the "see all" or other links, nothing happens and I can't get a view of the overall calendar.

 

Am I missing something simple to fix this?...or perhaps difficult? :)

 

many thanks,

Aja

Hi Aja,

Welcome to Trumba! How cool that you're including spuds in your blog. : )

 

I'm hoping this is indeed a simple one. It sounds like you need to include what's called a "teaserBase" variable in your spud code. The teaserBase is used with spuds that are not on the same page as your main calendar, to direct the spuds to the location of your main calendar.

 

Here's some info in our Spud FAQ about how to add the teaserBase. The question there is different, but the solution is the same. I hope that helps! Let me know if I can elaborate on anything.

Hi Jill - Thanks for the quick response. I checked the teaserbase url response and realized that what I am hoping for is that when someone clicks on the promotion spud on the calendar name or "see all" that they are taken to - http://www.trumba.com/calendars/yale-gallery-guide-calendar, (my calendar hosted on trumba) - is this possible? Or advisable? I guess what I mean to say is that since I am not sure how to get my main calendar page onto the typepad blog, this seemed like a solution?

 

:) < hopefully this emoticon accurately demonstrates my bewilderedness!

Ha! I think I figured it out on my own - I think my problem was that the url on the promotional spud was not directed correctly. I went in and deleted the old promotional spud, made a new one and on the main publishing settings set the url to http://www.trumba.com/calendars/yale-gallery-guide-calendar and NOT my own site. and republished the whole thing - Now it appears to be working!! Excellent!

Well done Aja! I'm glad you got it working. I'm sorry my references implied that you shouldn't have the teaserBase go to your hosted calendar on the Trumba site. As you discovered, that works just as well. : )
