Hello,

We're continuing to implement our Dance Events Calendar at http://www.dancescape.com/calendar

 

The objective is to continue to have worldwide Dance-related Workshops, Competitions and Events from our Members.

 

We started to create a number of regional calendars ... however, what we would like to do is to use the SEARCH function to generate links.

 

For example, when we put in events, say, from Massachusetts ... there are some events in Boston, while others in Cambridge, etc. What code/URL would we use in the SEARCH feature to then be able to have a link to the keyword with the relevant cities?

 

Also, the Search lets us find those events that may be in dance categories ... like Ballroom Dancing, Tango, Hip Hop, Salsa, etc. Similarly, could you provide us with the link we would need to use so that we can link to specific keywords ... like "Salsa, Boston" ... and then we would have a link to this from the SEARCH tool

 

For example, we are able to do this for our listings in AMAZON using their keyword functionality, which shows this link for keyword, "DanceScape", our products in Amazon:

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=br_ss_...ords=dancescape

 

We would like to do the same with our Calendar of Events at http://www.dancescape.com/calendar

 

Thanks for any tips!

Hi DanceScape,

I'm not entirely sure that I understand what you're asking for, but it sounds like you want to get a URL that you can use to display the calendars returned in your search results? If so, you can get the URL by using your standalone calendar on the Trumba site (http://www.trumba.com/calendars/[your calendarname]). Display your calendar there, do the search to get the results you want, and use the URL that appears in the address bar to create your link.

 

You might also want to take a look at the filters, too, in case they can help you create the view you want, or maybe even provide what you want without having to create the links. Here's a good place to start for more info: Allow visitors to filter events

 

Unfortunately, if you wanted to have these different regional views available as embedded views on your site, you'd have to create a new page for each regional view, and use the modified URL in the code for your spud. It might be easier in those cases to create links to the standalone calendar, and have the links open the calendar in a new window so visitors aren't taken away from your main site.

 

I hope I understood correctly? Let me know if I didn't. Your site is great!
