In the few days I’ve been back, I’ve been working tirelessly into the night to get a new and improved events calendar ready to be published, and it’s finally here! Here are some features of the new calendar:
- The default view is calendar view as seen above, but you can change to list view or map view by clicking the “view as” button in the top right corner.
- When you mouse over an event in calendar view, you can see a floating description box containing the event title, date/time, image, and blurb.
- Events are now searchable. If you click the arrow to the right of the “find events” bar, a drop down menu allows you to search for events by date, location, or title.
- Events now have their own unique page. If you click on an event title you will be taken to an event page like this one. On this page you will find a full description of the event, related photo, cover (in the top right corner), information about the venue, organizer, accessibility, seating and parking, as well as links to download the event to your google calendar or ical. In addition I have tagged the events with useful information like “date spot”, “fun for families”, “drinks”, etc.
I’m very excited about the changes happening around the blog. Let me know what you think of the new and improved events calendar in the comments. Are there any features you would like to see added?
