Issues & Projects for August / September

  • Transfered calendar to 2.0 version of software. The hosting company imported events, but they did so by using one of our "feeds", so all events from September 3rd on had to be manually deleted and then re-imported using the one-time import. Not all organizers/venues were imported, so I'm re-adding those manually.
  • Also, price went up on the software. MUCH cheaper by the year, so we did the yearly subscription. ($450.00/year which works out to $37.50/month, which is a signifiant savings from the $49.00/month. The original price was $29.00/month.)
  • The calendar page has received a 60% increase in pageviews over the past year.Graphic: Calendar Comparison
