Recommended Posts

testing 'event tags' 

maybe a useful tool for promoters and event goers

thinking is adding a 'genre' tag may work well for both

can see it in action here

 

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/calendar/event/57870-test-event-tags-post/

 

 

and tag listing here

 

 https://www.soul-source.co.uk/tags/funk/

 

tags are set up to be event genre type

the current first go list is as below

 

  • modern ×
  • r&b ×
  • oldies ×
  • club soul ×
  • northern soul ×
  • motown ×
  • real soul ×
  • crossover ×
  • sweet soul ×

 

 

suggestions for additions and/or edits to above are most welcome via reply along with views/feedback

 

testing for a few days to see how it goes

 

cheers now

Just now, Amsterdam Russ said:

Tags for countries & cities possible? Say I wanted to find events in Berlin or elsewhere in Germany to coincide with a weekend trip there. Might that be useful?

 

thanks for the suggestion Russ, but we do have such features already available

 

there's the  soul map feature which features events in the next 90 days, you can zoom in to worldwide locations with that

 

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/membermap/?group=events

 

plus the event guide does has the local and international features
which could do with some fine tuning but at moment can display events location based 

 

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/calendar/14-local-soul/
 

you just need to change your location and  range

 

also have the international guide for non-uk

 

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/calendar/15-international/2018/11/

 

while we could use tags for locations, given the actual number of cities/towns would need,  feel it would be very unwieldy and as would duplicate the current  'location' features feel wouldnt work that well


while using tags for 'genre' works as can keep things structured as in the tags are pre-determined and then simply selected by the promoters

 

cheers

maybe, but as with any 'tool' a lot depends on how it gets used

 see how things go

Is three the limit?

at the moment yep Chalky, more needed? 

thinking is more than 3 will become unwieldy?

Had a look at adding tags to our weekend event in Amsterdam, but the only ones available are: upfront, modern, R&B, oldies and club soul. No sign of the others when scrolling. Screen grab here...

 

 

2

good catch Russ, some got left out somehow, the others are now added making 9 in total

 

as said/asked any adds/edits suggestions to the tags welcome
