Radar mods and devs articles with help and updates.

At the end of this year we're going to upgrade Radar. Over twenty years since it was first launched and six years since the last major upgrade.

No huge changes are planned for this update; but there are plenty of usability improvements. Unless someone wants to volunteer to do some design it'll keep looking just as now somewhat like it did when it was launched back in 2001. Mobile friendly naturally.

Groups that mainly organise online are new to Radar. Organising this way posses new challenges to many activists - and also to the Radar Group moderators.

It's always been possible to have events in more than one group. But the field on the event form was always a mess, and confusing. Finally we've had an idea and some time to make it simpler.

On the form when you create an event, or edit it, all it says (under the location of the event) is the groups it is, or will be in.
On the page of an event that you can edit you will now see a link to add (and remove) groups as available.

If you click the link you will get a form offering you groups you can add to. Yours, and others that you can post to.

In these times when everyone is being forced to change how they organise two existing features of are worth mentioning:

You can cancel events

This makes it clear to visitors that the event was announced, but no longer goes ahead (at that time anyway). On the site this visually strikesthrough the event. If you use the javascript to show the events on your site it will do the same. Others using the API to get events can also use this information.

Do you want a list of the upcoming events from Radar for your group on your website?

There are several ways of doing this, but we've just added one more, really easy option: a Javascript widget.

The script

Here is an example. Just add a bit of code like this somewhere on your website. The only condition is that you are allowed to place javascript there.
