There's a New Widget in Town....

Most of you know about Wassa--he's not quiet or shy. =) But there's another webmaster on AQ you might not know about named Admin 42, and he/she doesn't post much so you might not even know of their existence.

However! He/she does read the message boards, and there was a request some time ago to create a calendar widget that could display when trackers, events and such that you've signed up for start. I liked the idea and bookmarked it to implement later, but Admin 42 didn't want to wait and took it upon themselves to create such a widget.

And it's now available. He/she still says the widget is a work in progress, but it currently does include listings for trackers you've signed up for and any entries you've added to the Countdown Widget. (For those of you not familiar with the Countdown Widget, it's a premium member only widget.) Event signups are still a work in progress, but I suspect those will be supported soon enough as  well!

The Calendar Widget will also be just for premium members--at least for now while Admin 42 is still actively working on it. I haven't decided if I'll open it up for everyone when the widget is "done," but for now, premium members who want to kick the tires, go the Add Widgets page and add the Calendar Widget! It's pretty awesome! =)

I added the widget, but it isn't showing the LTC trackers I am signed up for??? I don't have anything on the coutdown widget...

Be sure to click the edit link (the pencil in the title) to enable or disable what's included. I'm not sure what the defaults are, but I'd assume if trackers aren't showing, it's because you haven't enabled them yet!

After adding the widget I clicked on next month until I got to March 2014 when the next event I am attending will be. When I got to January 2014 it said that March was the next month!

Can this be used to track an event that you're interested in, but think you most likely can't attend and therefore don't want to sign up for, just so you remember it exists?

I think you can if you enter the event as a countdown item.
