how about having the gigs page, laid out like a calender so its easier to see, cos the gigs page is a bit crap unless you're really looking for particular details. a calender would be good for those people jus browsing for whats coming up, its difficult to see what comes in what order, unless you open every single post. if you had some way of it working so that someone could post the details and it automatically apeared on the calender it would be great so there is no need for it to be moderated. i know it sounds really difficult to do, but if we get all the geniuses of fastfude working on it i think we could get something good.
what do you reckon? can anyone think of any way of doing this? Edited by: fhoadam at: 2/21/01 9:58:27 am
I actually wrote calender system for the UTV Internet site about a year ago... easy enough. It even looks like a wee calendar... pretty cool... :)
You can put in events and it'll email you when they're coming up and alert you on the website and stuff...
why dont you give it a go for the gigs poage here, and see if its any good?
Assuming you were going to do this, then xref the bands page with the gigs page would be awesome.
Well I'm still waiting for that
"on the FF boards as:" field to be added
to the Bands page!
It increasinly relevent now we have the
"who's on-line" script: the site will
werk best if bands can maximise knowledge
of their login names, but
unless ewe put it in the original data capture
form, they'll never think to tell us...
yeah. this and many other fine ideas are buzzing round my head all the time, but getting it done is a whole other "thing"...
Steve (the steaming great heap of genius who put the bands page together) chips in when he can, but like us all has things called "job" and "life" which keep getting in the way...
hopefully it'll come together someday
Yeah, I like being a bum.
6 hours of classes a week RAWKS!!
Pity I don't know how to write any useful codes or I could be quite useful...ah well...I'm off to get pissed :)
Aye guys... apologies for the tardiness in getting things done... I'm in work two days a week at the moment, and in the studio recording an album the rest of the time... and I really do mean "the rest" of the time.
If I get a free moment today, I'll put in all the stuff that's been requested... the wee calendar thing might take a wee while, coz I'll need to rip off the code from the UTV site, and Xref it with the bands page... should be interesting... ;)
cool, if you need a hand, gimme ashout, not that i'd be much use..
