Wall Messages join the Sueetie Calendar Integrated Content Club

One of the data points I record for Sueetie is framework updates on the Sueetie Event Calendar, basically a Changelog in Calendar Format. The Calendar works well to highlight ongoing Sueetie development.  And because of the Calendar Integration in Sueetie, readers who want more information about the update can click and go to a blog post or wiki page for the details. 

I wanted to use a Wall Message to describe a framework update on the Calendar and knew this would be a very handy feature in Sueetie v4.0, so Wall Messages joined the Event Calendar Integrated Content Club.  Other members of the Content Club include Forum Topics, CMS Pages, Marketplace Products, Wiki Pages, Blog Posts, and Media Objects.

Here’s a Sueetie Event Calendar screenshot with each event linked to various types of Sueetie Content.

Linking to a Wall Message

Each Sueetie Wall Message has an associated Permalink which displays the wall message and its comments. To link a wall message to a calendar event you will go to the wall message’s permalink page where you will find the Calendar icon. The Calendar Icon only appears for users with ContentAdministrator Role Permissions.

When you click on the Calendar icon the Event Calendar Entry form will display where you can provide additional description, select a calendar for display and chose an event type. Like all Sueetie Events, repeat dates and date ranges are supported.

If the Wall Message contains a Subject it will automatically appear in the Calendar Entry form. Otherwise you will need to supply a topic.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
