Better Facebook sharing and automated posting to our page
May 21, 2019
When you share a Gig on Facebook, we now include a large banner image
with the date and location
All new gigs are posted automatically to the Central Florida Live
Facebook page at
facebook.com/centralfloridalive.net Various usability improvements
Feb 16, 2019
If Facebook/Instagram/Twitter IDs aren't input "just so", we fix them
up before using them.
Share larger images to Facebook, et al
Clean up the shared description of Gigs
Made "Add a new artist/gig/venue" easier to find
You can now add images to gigs
Jan 19, 2019
A flyer, poster, whatever
Will be used when sharing to Facebook and elsewhere
If you don't add one, we'll just use the artist's or venue's image, in that order.
Fixed an error when adding new venues
Jan 4, 2019
In certain cases, attempting to add a new venue would fail with an
unhelpful error message. These cases should now succeed as expected.
Easier gig sharing
Dec 8, 2018
Each individual gig page now includes a Facebook "Share" button to
make your life a few clicks easier.
Better, more-shareable gig listings
Dec 7, 2018
Added a "My Stuff" page showing gigs, artists, venues you've added
Those artists have an "embed" button that shows how to add two lines of HTML to your own web pages and display your CFL gigs there
You can now use rich formatting (including links, etc.) in your gig listings. Exercise a
little restraint, please :-) Worked around a Chrome/Android browser issue that would sometimes display HTML attributes in the page header
Fixed a bug wherein artist/venue images containing certain punctuation could not be uploaded
We've added a Search bar
Nov 15, 2018
It's up there by the menu.
Just start typing band or club names, and matching things will appear
in a list below. Tap on one of them to view it.
Minor fixes and tweaks
Nov 13, 2018
Notably, Gig pages were showing an "RSVP on Facebook" link in some
cases where no such link was actually present. Fixed.
Nov 11, 2018
You can now (optionally) add an end time to go with your gig's start time.
Every gig offers links to add it to Google, Yahoo, Outlook or iOS/Mac calendars.
You can now remove listings from the site
Nov 6, 2018
Cancellations suck. But they happen.
Discussion boards are live
Nov 5, 2018
More preview improvements
Nov 3, 2018
Made sure the date and time are always visible when sharing a gig on
Removed 'back' links on some pages (they were unnecessary, arbitrary, and I was
tired of looking at them)
Sharing improvements, minor bug fixes
Nov 2, 2018
Improved preview text when sharing artists or gigs on Facebook
Ensure bands' upcoming shows are in the correct order when the time is "TBD"
Allow 'TBD' showtimes
Nov 1, 2018
If you've booked a date, but the time isn't nailed down yet, just
leave that part empty when adding the gig. The time will display as TBD
in the shows list, and empty in the show details.
List bands in the correct order on the main bands list.
Usability fixes based on early feedback
Nov 1, 2018
If you try to add a show when you haven't added your band yet, we drop you at the "new band" page with an explanation of how you ended up there.
When looking up venues, the address fields would sometimes be pre-filled with redundant information (city and state added to the club name, etc.)
Cleaned up venue data affected by the above bug.
