Jumper Month

  • Hi,

    i) Currently Jumper Start Year has drop down selection of 2015, 2016, 2016, 2017, 2018. What will the list be after year 2018?

    ii) If i set the Jumper Start Year to 2017 and Jumper Years Count to 2, it will always show 2017 and 2018 only, even after year 2019?

      looking over this page
      http://www.bayanihan3.alphawebdemo.info/courses-events/

      If you set the calendar to 2017 and Jumper Years Count to 2 (showing 2017 and 2018)

      when 2018 comes around it will show 2018 and 2019

      it changes with the year

      Ok, got it. Thanks.

      Here another question.

      i) I set Fixed Month/Year to “1” “2017“, Jumper Start Year to “2017“, Jumper Years Count to “1“,  the shortcode generated as below:

      [add_eventon jumper=”yes” exp_jumper=”yes” jumper_offset=”2″ jumper_count=”1″ fixed_year=”2017″ fixed_month=”1″ ]

      And here how it looks like. So, will the 2017 becomes 2018 in year 2018?

      Sorry another question.

      i) Currently Jumper Start Year (backend) has only 5 drop down selection which are 2015, 2016, 2016, 2017, 2018. Will this list change when 2019 comes?

      ii) I set Jumper Start Year to “2015“, Jumper Years Count to “5“, the shortcode generated as below:

      [add_eventon jumper=”yes” jumper_count=”5″ jumper_offset=”0″ exp_jumper=”yes” ]

      And here how it looks like. As you can see the jumper year are 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 now. So, what will this list be in year 2018, year 2019 and year 2010?

      so yes when 2018 comes it will change over to 2018 from 2017

      as for your last question:
      think of it as dynamic and not fixed

      if right now in 2017 it is showing 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019

      in 2018 it will show
      2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

      in 2019 it will show
      2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021

      and so on

      Ok, if it is dynamic then it will have big problem. When 2018 comes, my 2015 will disappear from the calendar ! It is very strange my past events keep disappearing from the calendar

    • By: infotainerdave Mar 17,2017 AT 1:24AM - Posted 3 years ago - #31465

      there are 2 ways- past events vanish

      1: in myeventon>>>>settings You have hide past events or delete past events activated

      2: in the calendar shortcode you have hide past events yes in there

      as for setting up past calendars

      you can create a calendar that will always show 1 year for example 2015

      In the past customers have created past year page achieves so you can click on the 2015 page and it shows only 2015’s events

      create a new page- call it whatever you want and add the following to the shortcode:

      fixed_year=”2015″

      and it will always only show that year even when the next year comes it will still show 2015

      if you have access to a Tab layout you can create horizontal tabs

      2015    2016    2017    2018

      and put a year specific calendar in the appropriate tab

      and if you do use the tab layout- it really speeds up the loading of each year

      there are plenty of free tab plugins out there- some themes come with it as standard

      Hi, thanks for your help. However, i have different findings. To test out how it will look like after 2018 I have setup a copy on local and change my server time to year 2018.

      i) If i use this shortcode, i found that it will stay as 2017 even after year 2018. Are you sure this will change to 2018? Can you confirm this again?

      [add_eventon jumper=”yes” exp_jumper=”yes” jumper_offset=”2″ jumper_count=”1″ fixed_year=”2017″ fixed_month=”1″ ]

      http://dropcanvas.com/61s1u

      ii) If i use this shortcode, the Jumper Month will be “2013”, 2014″,2015″,”2016″. It will be fixed and won’t change. It is not dynamic as long as i have fixed_year so i can still show my past events.

      [add_eventon jumper=”yes” exp_jumper=”yes” jumper_offset=”0″ jumper_count=”4″ fixed_month=”1″ fixed_year=”2015″ ]

    • By: infotainerdave Mar 17,2017 AT 7:33AM - Posted 3 years ago - #31485

      the fixed year is ONLY for the 1 year that you set- not multiple

      do the tab layout- that works best or create an individual page for each year

      fixed year only works for 1 year

      you want to make it easy for your customers- thats the most important thing its easy for a customer to view a page with 1 years events on it

      so have the main calendar with now and future events and if they want to see past events have a link to view the archives

      (i’m a marketing guy outside this helpdesk- I know marketing!) archives are not as important as now and future events

    • By: khongyp Mar 17,2017 AT 8:16AM - Posted 3 years ago - #31488

      Yes, if i use this shortcode it will only be for 1 year.

      [add_eventon fixed_month=”1″ fixed_year=”2015″ ]

       

      But if i use this shortcode which has jumper_count=”4″, although it is fixed on 2015 but it will have jumper month “2013”, “2014”, “2015”, “2016” that allow users to toggle between these years just like tab.

      [add_eventon jumper=”yes” exp_jumper=”yes” jumper_offset=”0″ jumper_count=”4″ fixed_month=”1″ fixed_year=”2015″ ]

      It would be perfect if i don’t have to create a different page for each of the year but i do worry about loading speed. I guess i have to go with this one.

      Tab layout will speeds up the loading speed? All the years will still be in one page just different tabs. Isn’t when the page load it will have to load all the years too?

    • By: infotainerdave Mar 17,2017 AT 5:18PM - Posted 3 years ago - #31539

      yes [add_eventon jumper=”yes” exp_jumper=”yes” jumper_offset=”0″ jumper_count=”4″ fixed_month=”1″ fixed_year=”2015″ ] should keep it on 2015 January and have the other years showing

      for most clients- showing past years is not that important perhaps if you could explain why it is important the boss may put in additional features to show past events
