Next Step

Well the email sign up is working well. Support page is working well. I am still flummoxed by youtube and the lovely little wp application for embedding videos. This will be my second try with one of my personal videos.


Much Better

This looks a lot more like a web page now. There is still lots to do. Especially in the area of membership and volunteerism. A cafe menu is required. Hopefully from this point we will be able to post interesting shows in here, rather than blathers about the rather painless construction of a community theatre web site. I am still waiting for the calendar to arrive by email. That is kinda crazy. There calendar you see hear is simply a place holder. Has some neat features, but not not good enough for handling the number and diversity of staircase bookings. For your patience I have included this sweet political parody youtube (yes I am just testing video insertion)

OMIGOD!! They killed Vipers Video Quicktags. Arrrrrrrgh!

It is also worth noting that Google Java implementation wrecks the calendar on the page as well. Google analytics breaks shashin and highslide as well.  So no analytics yet.


The State of Calendars

It is amazing. Trying to find a workable calendar for the Staircase. It is very very hard. The key items needed are rapid deployment of event information with multiple categories. Recurring entries and the ability to edit solitary entries within the recurring entries, and month view. Calendarix did a nice job of that for us. Our version of calendarix was heavily modded to for our juicy delights: images, preset locations, preset fees, etc. I have installed 8 wordpress calendars, all of which are missing key features. Juicy features are not even being considered at this point. I have looked at commercial calendars but they either lack modability, or don’t supply a month view (because they are innovative!!). Looks like calendarix wins. Juice to be squeezed into it later.
