SacForums Community Calendar Issue Resolved

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

I frequently invite people to add their events to the Community Calendar on SacForums.com, but I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t seeing the events show up. The issue was recently confirmed via a member’s feedback.

I just had a major “AH HAH!” moment…

For whatever reason not all of the settings for the calendar are in the same location. I finally discovered that the moderation option was enabled, which requires an admin or moderator manually approving all calendar events posted by members. However, I never received any notifications, so I would have to manually seek out these events in the calendar and approve them. Obviously, this is time consuming for me, and not really fair to members who are also probably wondering why their events aren’t showing up!

So, I apologize for this oversight and hope that you will continue to add events to the Community Calendar. Events are no longer moderated, so they should show up immediately. If not, please let me know.

Also, please note that calendar events will still be automatically posted to the Events forum.

Thank you for your understanding and, again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

New Sports Forums

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Sure, Sacramento is home to the Kings, Monarchs (folded in 2009) and the River Cats, but many people may be surprised to learn that there is a lot more to the professional sports scene… So, the pro sports forum is splitting up into individual forums for teams such as the Kings, River Cats, Mountain Lions, Sirens & Capitals.

Here are some direct links to the new forums:

http://sacforums.com/forum/184-sacramento-kings/

http://sacforums.com/forum/185-sacramento-river-cats/

http://sacforums.com/forum/186-sacramento-mountain-lions/

http://sacforums.com/forum/187-sacramento-sirens/

http://sacforums.com/forum/189-sacramento-capitals/

Of course, if you feel a team is missing and needs their own forum, be sure to post a suggestion! :)

Happy New Year!

2010 brought many exciting changes to SacForums.com, including a new design, forum upgrade, social media integration, etc.  I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many great people from the site and at local meetups, and hope to continue to do so next year!

This year also brought some excitement to my family with the birth of our daughter in December! I’m looking forward to seeing what the new year brings  to our family and wish the best for you and yours in 2011!

Have a very happy, safe and prosperous new year!!

Posting to the Calendar and Events forum

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

The overhaul of SacForums.com has resulted in a change in how the Events Calendar system works. In my opinion, it’s a bit easier.

To add an event to the calendar, simply click on “Calendar” at the top, click the appropriate button to add either a recurring or single event, and enter the event details. You will no longer need to select the Events forum to post your event in as the new system will automatically post it in the Events forum for you. The posts in the Event forum will not use your username, but rather the username “Calendar,” which will copy the information you entered in the Calendar. The copied post will contain a link to the Calendar item.

Please note that the posts in the Events forum may not show up right away, as it depends on the time of day and when the Calendar’s feed is imported.

Site Overhaul Nearly Complete

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

It’s been a long couple weeks… Actually, it’s been longer than that, but I’ve been working on the actual forum conversion for over a week and I’m finally at a place where I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this site is a constant work in progress, but my checklist is getting smaller on a daily basis.

There are still several issues that still need to be addressed, so this won’t be the official announcement listing all that’s new. But, be assured that there are extensive changes, from the new design and logo to the new forum script, which still needs to be integrated into the new design. I hope you enjoy everything the new site has to offer!

Please feel free to explore, see what’s new, kick the tires, and let me know if you find any major problems.
