How to add your Camino to the New Camino Calendar

Dear all,

Adding your date to this calendar is a two step process:
  1. Start a new thread (maybe in the Camino Introduction section?) announcing your Camino with as much/little information that you feel comfortable with.
  2. Once the thread has been posted, click the "Threads Tools" drop down, just over (to the right) of your initial posts and select "Calendar Add".

  3. You then enter the start date of your Camino and press "Submit" to add it to the Calendar.
This will create a link in the Calendar (on your date) to the Thread you created about your camino plans.

If people thinks this is an easier way comparted to the old calendar, I will disconitnue the old calendar in a few weeks. If this happens, dates entered in the old calendar will be lost (there are not many).

Please let me know what you think.

Happy holidays and a happy new year!!
Ivar

I just noticed the calendar button for the first time today and this was my first search looking for more information so I will have to try it out.

For the more simple minded people like myself, the thread tools shows up on a brand new post, not in response to one. Cool feature.

HELP! OK would some one please tell me what I am doing wrong, or not doing correctly. No matter where I look, click on, hover over I can not bring up the "Thread Tools" link. The advise/instructions that it is " to the right of " your initial post" brings no success. So would some one send me a screen shot of what I am supposed to looking at/for. Thanks in advance.
It only shows up on threads you have started yourself.

Alright - but that little fact seems to have been omitted from the instructions. So if I want something posted on the Camino Calendar I have start a "new post"- seems like re-inventing the wheel when "tagging" would be a lot simpler/easier (at least from my point of view). Cheers

I agree.. the instructions was a bit confusing... I updated it now.

The plugin I use works like this, it would be quite a bit of work for me to re-write the whole thing... so hopefully we can work with this.

Buen Camino!

Too many caminos to list in the permitted 100 characters!!

All too complicated for an old-timer :(.
I'd prefer to click on the date and just enter text. Maybe a box could come up with basic headings - all optional - "Start location: Name: Home location: Number of days [anticipated]: final destination if not SdC." something along those lines.
Thanks to Ivar for all the hard work you put into this forum, which provides so much help and information.
Buen camino from an old timer [who's still trying to work out how to use his iPhone] .....

Dear all,

Adding your date to this calendar is a two step process:
  1. Start a new thread (maybe in the Camino Introduction section?) announcing your Camino with as much/little information that you feel comfortable with.
  2. Once the thread has been posted, click the "Threads Tools" drop down, just over (to the right) of your initial posts and select "Calendar Add".

  3. You then enter the start date of your Camino and press "Submit" to add it to the Calendar.
This will create a link in the Calendar (on your date) to the Thread you created about your camino plans.

If people thinks this is an easier way comparted to the old calendar, I will disconitnue the old calendar in a few weeks. If this happens, dates entered in the old calendar will be lost (there are not many).

Please let me know what you think.

Happy holidays and a happy new year!!

I like this method. I just happened to look at the calendar yesterday, saw a link in a date, clicked it and discovered a good thread of introduction that I had missed and that had long disappeared from view. As that date approaches, probably more people will join in to update plans for that date.

This is much more difficult been trying for ages and just saw your thread And now I try to start one and it says new topic, is that the same? Also, maybe consider different calendar for Portuguese?

Good morning Ivar.
There are still quite a few things missing from the Calendar.
May 2018 is completely blank.
My own post there is missing plus several others.
Hope you can fix it.
Thanks.

There are some entries for May now - not sure if yours is there or not.

The calendar is a great idea and it's easy to add something to it but a small issue I have is that when someone enters a start date and an end date, the link to their post appears every day in between. I think this will clog up the calendar a lot and doesn't really help people find other pilgrims starting around the same time and from the same place as them.

I totally agree. I find the Calendar very confusing now, because it's hard to know when someone is actually starting the Camino. Not to mention odd things like "injured toe". I think that the end date field should be removed.

This is what July looks like

Totally agree with ‘jungleboy’ and ‘trecile’ above.

I think the calendar was easier to understand before it was updated.

Maybe if a person wants to enter an end date, could it be put in with the further details of their Camino when you click on the entry?

Do you think this might work?

I have been trying to get people to just enter their start date, but I guess the message has not gotten across.

This plug-in is just a regular calendar, so there is no special feature I can activate for people to only be allowed to enter one date.... even so, I will have a look what I can do.

I guess it is still better than no calendar? Will look into it...

Greetings from finally sun and heat in Santiago,
Ivar
