Control and promotion spuds
What you can learn in this topic
Tip If you're trying to troubleshoot this event detail page error message, "Sorry, you may not have permission to view that event or it may have been deleted.", see Troubleshoot an event detail error.
You use control spuds on the same page as your main calendar spud. Visitors interact with control spuds to change the state of the main calendar spud. For example, you can add control spuds that let visitors change the view, filter the events they see, and search by keyword or location.
The following image shows several control spuds above and beside the main calendar.
Promotion spuds promote events. You use them on pages of your website that do not contain your main calendar spud to attract the attention of site visitors and direct them to the main calendar page.
Tip You can include date icons with the events in your promotion spuds. Learn more.
To add control and promotion spuds, you go to the Control Spuds and Promotion Spuds tabs in the Publishing Control Panel. For each spud you add, Trumba Connect generates the script that you use to embed the spuds into your webpages.
Tip When you first visit the tabs for a newly published calendar, you see the most popular spuds already in place. These spuds include the Month List, Search, and View Chooser control spuds and the Date Finder and Day Summary promotion spuds. You can preview (1) and edit the settings (2) for each of these default spuds. Or, if you decide not to use one of these spuds, you can easily remove it (3) (default spuds you remove are still visible in the hosted view).
To add a control or promotion spud
Tip You can modify a spud's settings and styles at any time by finding the spud on the Control Spuds or Promotion Spuds tab, and then clicking Edit Settings & Styles.
Remove a control or promotion spud
You can remove any of the default spuds you see when you first visit the Control Spuds or Promotion Spuds tab. You can also remove any spud you add yourself.
Caution If you embedded the code for the spud you're removing into any of your webpages, be sure to delete the code before you remove the spud. If code for a spud you remove is still embedded, the spud appears but it reverts to the default styles and settings. If you add the spud back to the control panel, you have to reset the custom settings manually.
