Hi Gang,

Here are the instructions on how to use the Calendar to schedule runs.

1. Go to the trips forum here: http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/forumdisplay.php?f=66

2. Choose the appropriate sub-forum for your run (easy, moderate, difficult)

3. Enter a new post which describes your trip and asks people to sign up. Remember to include run date, meeting location, and time

3. When you enter the post for the run, you will see the URL for your post at the top of your screen... it will look something like: http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/showthread.php?t=13617 COPY this thread by highlighting it and hitting Control C

4. Click on the Calendar link at the top of the forum page

5. Select "add new event" Ranged Event (or all day event depending on your run) near the bottom right hand side of the calendar page

6. Enter the event name (same name as your post in the trail section), date, and start time.

7. In the event information section, simply paste (control V) the URL that you copied in step 3 above.

8. Click "Save Event" and you are done.

Now... whenever anyone clicks on the calendar, they can see your event. If they click on your event, they will see the link to the signup post.

This may seem difficult... but really, it takes less than a minute to complete once you get the hang of it.

If you want folks to sign up for your runs... USE THE CALENDAR!!! :)
