    Hi all!

    The Overland Event Calendar allows you to add a forum post to the calendar. The notice on the calendar will have a link to your event thread so other members can get details about your event! Within 90 days of your event, your event will also appear in the forum sidebar!

    Here is how you use this feature:

    You must be a "Member" in these forums. That means you have an Overland Bound Emblem and number. More info on that here: Get Your Overland Bound Membership

    Your forum account also needs to be upgraded to "Member" on these forums. More info on that here: Members Upgrade Your Forum Account for Free

    1. Create a forum post with details about your event.
    2. Post it
    3. At the top, under "Thread Tools" you will see "Calendar Add". Click That. calendar1.png
    4. Fill in the details. That's it!
    5. If you have a recurring event, click "Advanced", and fill it out.

    6. To access the calendar, click the sub navigation tab at the top of the forums here: calendar2.png
    7. Your event will automatically show up in the forum sidebar within 360 days of the event!
    Please provide feedback or let me know if you have any questions!

    NICE ! This should come in super handy for scheduling things like the Mohave run in March!

    Edit: trip is in March not May.

    Yes you can Robert! The intent is for OB members to post their events. If you find it useful, use it! It is sometimes hard to find the right forum thread for the right event. They get buried. The hope is that this feature provides a simple reference to what's going on, with an easy direct link to the right forum!

    If you meant the MOJAVE trip in March,... Added! (very cool btw)

    J/K, I found out that there are two different ways Mojave / Mohave is spelled, and from what I can tell, it depends on which side of the California / Arizona border you're standing on.
    Mojave = California
    Mohave = Arizona

    They're from the same tribe but I guess states chose to spell it differently.
    Just like now, where Arizonan's and Californian's like to do things differently from each other!
    Some things never change.

    @Michael is there a way to sync the OB calendar with mobile phone calendar ect?

    Not sure if the calendar was completely forum based or whether it was a plugin

    Thoughts?
    Cheers
