I love the news template and can think of lots of great ways to use it, but it occurs to me that it needs a new widget. It would be like the "upcoming events" widget, only instead of displaying x number of future events, it would display x number of past events.

Waddya think?

Hi wyndwoman,
Interesting. Can you give an example of when you'd want to use it?

Sure.

I have a calendar called Social Justice Alerts, which I've formatted as news. The Social Justice Committee chair can post things whenever she wants and the page on our website will update immediately. She'll use today's date when she posts them. (www.concorduu.org/social_justice2.htm)

On the front page, I want to have an index of the social justice alerts that will list the "headlines" for the last three things that were posted. It could be called something like "Recent items from Social Justice Alerts." The upcoming events widget won't work because there won't be any future events on the social justice page, only today and things in the past.

Make sense?

Ah, yes, makes complete sense. Yes, such a thing could even work well for our own What's New calendar. :)

Thanks for cluing me in!

Yes it would work well for you! So, since Trumba has a vested interest... when might we see that in production? :P

Hi Jill,

I'm dredging up this old post because it wasn't clear to me whether you were going to add this to the list of requested features.

I find myself actually pining for such functionality. I've got 3 site that would benefit enormously from it.

Hi Lorraine,
Thanks for resurrecting this topic. I had intended to log it on the feature request list after I last posted, but when I went to look, it wasn't there! I'm so sorry. It could be that Anne or Connie did, and I just didn't search for the right terms, but I also definitely just added a new request, with a link to this topic and your example. I'm really sorry that I messed this up! I don't have any info from dev to pass along yet, but I'll let you know when I do.

Hi-
Not sure if you have heard, however we've made a “newsworthy” improvement to Trumba Connect! Most of our calendar spuds and promotion spuds can now be configured to display events going into the past. This allows our promotion spuds and calendar views to be used to publish news and announcements in addition to events. Within the settings for the Calendar and Promotion spuds, we now have a descending option along with the ability to specify a start and end date (going backwards)

I hope you will find this a useful enhancement!
Thanks,
Steve
