Title: Forum Calendar and Events features enabled!
Post by: PetrifiedWood on February 06, 2015, 11:46:50 PM
Ok, I finally got around to configuring the calendar and events features.

You should now see a calendar button or tab (depending on the theme you use) at the top of every page in the row beginning with the "Home" button. This will allow you to view the calendar. If you entered an age and birthday in your profile, it will appear there. You can remove this by removing them from your profile settings if you are shy about it. :D

This new functionality will allow us to post upcoming event threads, like campouts and other gatherings, and link the posts to the calendar on the date(s) they are to occur. Also, events will be displayed in a banner toward the bottom of the main forum index page.

I hope you all find the new features fun and useful! :thumbsup:

Great idea!  We're smack in the middle of camping season down here and it's hard keeping everything straight.  Plus it's great if you travel some and can hit a few out of state meets.

Thanks PW for enabling this feature. I've placed a couple of events in the Florida section to see how it all works.

Great! I am glad you guys will make use of it.

If anyone else in a different location has an event they want to add to the calendar, let me know and I can give you access to post events.

I managed to keep it a secret this year, despite threats from MnSportsman to 'out' me in my I'M BACK thread, but thanks anyway, Zams....You're a good guy! :cheers:
