Weekly Newsletter 11 September 2018

This week's newsletter has some information about the new map search function, interesting articles, a couple of postponements and a couple of late additions to the running calendar.

Interesting articles

I added a new function to the website yesterday for premium members which lets you see your search results on a map, as shown in the screenshot above. There's a "Show Map" button at the top of the page; click that and then you'll see the events group together. Click the circles or zoom in and you'll see the individual event location pins. Click those to see the event name and date and then click through for the event listing.

This joins the other functions (such as location based searching in the search box and being emailed when new events match your saved searches) for premium members. Find out more about the levels of membership here and sign up today!

I'll be creating some videos/screencasts of the various functions later this week, and will link to them in next week's newsletter.
