I'm the same as you and have always wondered and been afraid I'd make a mistake! 😛

Well, guys, I have figured it out, so you can too!

First, compose a post, starting a new thread. Title could be something like “Starting June 4 from Alicante.” Write your post. Then when you are done, click over on the top right, and one of the possible actions will be “calendar”. Click it and a little box will come up that lets you put in your departure date. What happens then is that the Calendar posts a link to your thread on the date you depart. So people looking at the calendar can click on the title and see more about what you have posted. DO NOT (sorry to shout) put in your end date, because that means that your post will be linked to every single date you are walking.

I have been trying to keep an eye on this, adding calendar start dates when I see that a person announces his or her starting date.

Try it and see if it works, if not, PM me and we can figure it out. Buen camino, Laurie

Thanks, Laurie, I'll give it a try! I leave next Monday for Portugal! I'm sure you are heading somewhere soon yourself. We both love starting in spring!

I can't even figure out how to do a post.

Hi Laurie,
I just wrote my new post like you suggested. I found nothing in the right hand corner, nor anywhere else listing "calendar". I only use my android phone. Possibly that is my problem. Maybe you can move this to the calendar section for me. Thanks!

Edit...Here is the thread title.
"Starting April 15th from Lisbon-Fisherman's Trail/Portuguese Camino"

I will of course do this for you, but on the chance you want to figure it out, you are halfway there!

Once you post your thread, pull it up. You should see over on the right three little dots with a downward facing arrow. Click on it (that's what the screen shot shows, and a whole menu comes up. You may not have as many options as I do since I am a moderator, but you should have Calendar menu.

Click on that.

Then hit the calendar add. And just add your date. Hope it makes sense, but if you are frustrated and are fed up with confusing instructions, I am happy to do it.
