No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

TECHIE TIPS: Posting an event to the Calendar
« on: March 11, 2010, 01:57:08 PM »
If you're organising a glass event, then you can use the board's Calendar to help publicise it. The Calendar interacts with the Glass Events forum, so needs a little explaining of how to make the link work.

Rather than post to the Events forum itself, which then means having to add a manual link to the Calendar, it's easier to follow the steps below and it's all done auto-magically for you!  :thup:

Here's how...
Posting an Event to the Calendar

To post an event by selecting "Calendar" from the main tabbed menu at the top of the board, followed by "Post Event" from the calendar screen.

What you see now is a "Start new topic" screen with supplementary fields for the event title, date and target board, which simply add your event to the calendar and create a link back to your post in that board.

Click the thumbnails below for screenshots showing each step.
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd
