how is the ny time calendar spud working?

Recommended Posts

I noticed the calendar spud on the trumba.com homepage.

 

When you click on the event, it takes you to NY times, not trumba.com. However, on my calendar spuds, it goes to trumba.com.

 

I'm guessing NY times paid for some custom devleopment? I'm curious about this, because I'd like to do the same with other vendors who might be hosting my calendar.

 

Thanks

Jacob

It seems the NY Times Automotive page is doing something else besides changing the "teaser_base". Here is the embed they are using:

 

<iframe marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://www.trumba.com/nytimes/automotive/upcoming.aspx?nologo=1" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="336" height="360">

</iframe>

 

There is no teaser_base on NYTimes Automotive Page. They must be doing some custom development since the source is pointing to nytimes/automotive/upcoming.aspx

 

I am trying to accomplish functionality similar to NYTimes and am changing the teaser_base on the upcoming events spud that resides on a jsp page that resides within another jsp page. I was able to get the calendar spud to open clicked events within this nested page, but the upcoming events spud did not work. When I clicked on an Event, it just reloaded the upcoming event spud on my page.

bbern,

 

Actually that's incorrect. If you look at the source of the IFRAME at http://www.trumba.com/nytimes/automotive/upcoming.aspx you will see a trumba_teaserBase variable that points to http://www.nytimes.com/ref/automobiles/event_calendar.html.

Ahhhh....so thats how its done.... Now I see....I missed that...

 

Well, its not directly on the NY Times Automotive page, it looking like its actually on a Trumba hosted custom Spud.
