Post to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn


Recommended Posts

You can allow your site visitors to quickly post events to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. This is only available on the Event Detail views for the event. The options appear at the bottom of the Event Details screen along with the other Event Actions such as Add to My Calendar, Forward to Friends, etc.

To share a Trumba event to Facebook:

  1. Click the Facebook icon in the footer of an event detail page.

    The post to Facebook and Twitter icons are enabled by default for all existing published calendars and any new calendars you published, however if you do not want to have these options displayed for your events, you can disable these options. Note: Post to LinkedIn is not enabled by default

     

    To Disable the Post to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn options

    To control the display of the Post to Facebook, Post to Twitter and Post to LinkedIn options on the Event Detail view for your events, first select your published calendar in Trumba and click Publish Settings>Calendar Spuds tab. Now click Edit Settings & Styles for the Event Detail view. Locate the Footer section and you will see the options to “Show post to Facebook”; “Show post to Twitter” which are enabled by default; and Show post to LinkedIn. Check the appropriate radio buttons to enable/disable the feature and click OK.

     

    Additional Information about images:

    When using images with events, Facebook requires all images to be 100 pixels or larger. Anything smaller than 100 pixels will not display in Facebook and may produce an error posting to Facebook. The post to Facebook will always try to pull in the Event Image and if it cannot, it will pull in the Detail Image. For example, if you have an event on your calendar and you are using just the Event Image field and that image is 70px x 70px, the event will post on Facebook without an image. If you are using both an Event Image and a Detail Image and both are 100px or larger, the Event Image will display with the Facebook post. If you are using both an Event Image and a Detail Image and the Event image is 70px x 70px and the Detail Image is 400px x 250px, the Detail Image will display with the Facebook post.
