Website Integration

You can integrate your new EventsGalore.net calendar into your website!

First, customize your EventsGalore.net calendar to look like your website: colors, headers, footers, and more can all be defined through the "Customize" menu in your calendar. Your webmaster may need to do the complex tasks, for example, including your site's navigation bar(s) in your calendar.

Then, edit one of your existing web pages as follows.

  1. The first involves simply linking to your calendar, through your site's navigation bar if you have one.
  2. The second allows you to embed a mini calendar within another web page, commonly used to put partial calendars on home pages.
We recommend doing both for maximum impact: make your calendar an entire section of your website, and put a mini calendar on your homepage. Here are the details.
  1. In short, you can link to your calendar using an address like http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint

    Use your EventsGalore.net calendar name instead of javajoint throughout these examples. IMPORTANT: Make the calendar name lower case and remove everything except letters and numbers (omit spaces, too).

    If your site doesn't have a navigation bar, simply create a link in your home page like:

    <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">View our on-line calendar.</A> Subscribe to get e-mail reminders of events!

    which renders as:
    View our on-line calendar. Subscribe to get e-mail reminders of events!

    If your site has a navigation bar, make your calendar its own section in your website by adding something like the following to your navigation bar.

    <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">Calendar of Events</A>

    Here's a simple example of this with a two element text navigation bar. Yours might involve graphics, but you'll get the idea:

    [ <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">Calendar of Events</A> | <A HREF="about.shtml">About Us</A> ]

    which renders as:
    [ Calendar of Events | About Us ]

  2. You can embed a mini calendar within another web page! This gives your calendar more visibility, since you can include it in your home page. We'll start simple and get more advanced below.

    Simple

    Simply place the following in your HTML file at the place you want your calendar to appear:

    <IFRAME SRC="http://EventsGalore.net/cgi-bin/list?cal=javajoint&mini" WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=300 FRAMEBORDER=1>
    <P ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">View our online calendar</A> </P>
    </IFRAME>

    which renders as:

    Remember to use your EventsGalore.net calendar name instead of javajoint throughout these examples.

    Feel free to change the WIDTH and HEIGHT to whatever you prefer, or make FRAMEBORDER=0 if you don't want a border.

    Note that your calendar will only be partially displayed. This is intentional; since we're assuming that this mini calendar is sharing the screen with other important information, this format displays a shorter calendar with a link to the complete calendar.

    Advanced

    This is more advanced, but you can even control what information gets displayed in your mini calendar. For example, to display the first 9 events (4 is the default), use mini=events:9, as in:

    <IFRAME SRC="http://EventsGalore.net/cgi-bin/list?cal=javajoint&mini=events:9" WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=300 FRAMEBORDER=1>
    <P ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">View our online calendar</A> </P>
    </IFRAME>

    To display up to 7 days worth of events (but only up to the default of 4 events), use mini=days:7, as in:

    <IFRAME SRC="http://EventsGalore.net/cgi-bin/list?cal=javajoint&mini=days:7" WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=300 FRAMEBORDER=1>
    <P ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">View our online calendar</A> </P>
    </IFRAME>

    The general format after the mini= is a keyword, followed by a : (colon), followed by a value. Here are all of the supported keywords for your mini calendar.
    KeywordMeaningPossible valuesExample
    eventsNumber of events to list.Any number; 0 means no limit (default is 4).events:9
    daysNumber of days to list.Any number; 0 means no limit (default is no limit).days:7
    descriptionApproximate number of words to list in the event description. If only part of the description is listed, each event title in your mini calendar will be a link to the full event in your regular calendar. Any number (including 0 for none) or the keyword all. The default is 25 words.description:15
    dateWhere to list the date.L for left column (default), T for at the top of each event, B for below of the title, or N for no date. There are two columns when the date is in the left column, but just one in every other instance.date:T
    durationList the duration of events?Y for yes (normal default), or N for no (default if no date listed).duration:N
    subscribeWhere to display the subscribe box.T for top (default), B for bottom, or N for no box.subscribe:B
    noteWhere to display the short note normally at the top of your calendar.T for top, B for bottom, or N for no note (default).note:B
    alt-styleUse alternate style sheet? (This is defined under the "Customize" menu in your calendar.)Y for Yes or N for No (default).alt-style:Y
    targetTarget window for all links in your mini calendar.Some choices are _blank (new window), _top (full unframed window), _parent (parent frame, if you're using frames) or the name of any window. Default is _blank.target:_top

    You may combine these as much as you wish. Seperate the keyword:value items with commas. The mini calendar will end whenever the number of days or the number of events is reached, whichever comes first.

    For example, to display up to 7 days worth of events, up to 9 events, with no duration listed, use days:7,events:9,duration:N like this:

    <IFRAME SRC="http://EventsGalore.net/cgi-bin/list?cal=javajoint&mini=days:7,events:9,duration:N" WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=300 FRAMEBORDER=1>
    <P ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF="http://EventsGalore.net/pub/javajoint">View our online calendar</A> </P>
    </IFRAME>

    If something isn't working as expected, double-check the spelling of your keywords and values.
