Various Technical notes about the fusn.org domain

Contact webster@fusn.org with any questions or suggestions about the fusn.org website, email, or other technical matters.

Website

Fusn.org Email and Google Apps

Email for fusn.org is hosted by Google. FUSN has a non-profit google apps subscription.

Calendaring

The UUA WordPress Theme came with the Events Manager plugin installed. FUSN already was maintaining a bunch of google calendars, and we want to allow people to continue to be able to use google calendars to maintain and distribute FUSN events. Therefore, we deactivated the Events Manager plugin and moved the pages (Events, Categories, Locations, Tags, My Bookings) to the trash.

We briefly considered the Simple Calendar Plugin, but at the time of this writing (9/2016), that plugin was incompatible with the UUA WordPress Theme.

For now, we are going with the html generated directly by google calendar’s “embed this calendar” feature.

See the page Google Calendar Notes for more details.
