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.

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.
