    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".
      Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 5.58.22 PM.png
    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.

    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!

    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] .....

    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?
