AddThisEvent

Download

Before installing the AddThisEvent stack onto your computer, you must first download it from the NimbleHost website.

After completing a purchase on the NimbleHost website, we will provide two ways for you to download your items:

  • Immediately after the sale is completed, you will be redirected to a special page with a download link for each item you purchased. You can use those download links to download each item to your computer.
  • After the purchase is completed, we will send you an email to the address you specified during payment. That email contains download links where you can download each item to your computer.

Install

  1. Locate the file you downloaded to your computer. It will most likely be in your Downloads file, and will be called "AddThisEvent-v1.0.0.dmg" or similar. 3198
  2. Double-click on that file, and a new Finder window should appear displaying the contents of your download. If a new Finder window does not appear (if you're using Mac OS X Lion it may not automatically display), click on the Finder icon located in the Dock. The Finder window, once you've located it, should look similar to the image shown to the right here.
  3. In that new Finder window you will see a file called "AddThisEvent.stack", shown as a yellow stack icon. If the icon is a folder, rather than a yellow stack icon, see this article on the Yourhead Software support site for Stacks.
  4. Double-click on that file, and it will automatically be installed for you.
  5. Restart RapidWeaver.

After following these steps, the next time you start RapidWeaver the AddThisEvent stack will be located in the Stacks library, which is accessible from any Stacks page.

Updating

In Stacks 2, update notifications are displayed with a small red symbol in the lower right corner of the AddThisEvent icon in the Stacks Library. Once that red symbol has appeared, select AddThisEvent, then apply the update by clicking on the small gear icon in the lower right corner of the Stacks Library, and selecting "Install Update".

Please Note: In Stacks 2, updates may take a few minutes to appear. According to Isaiah, the developer for Stacks, this is by design, so that checking for updates doesn't interrupt your workflow. You may need to restart RapidWeaver before the update will show up, and it may take 5-10 minutes before displaying depending on the size of your Stacks Library.

The AddThisEvent stack is provided free of charge and is a simple way for RapidWeaver users to take advantage of the AddThisEvent button available at http://addthisevent.com, without needing to mess with any code.

Usage

According to the AddThisEvent website personal, school, and non-profit use of AddThisEvent is free. Commercial use requires a license which can be purchased from the AddThisEvent website directly.

In stack settings there is a License field where you can enter your license after you've purchased one from the AddThisEvent website.

Event Settings

The event settings for the AddThisEvent stack are self-explanatory. You can specify the event title, summary, description, starting and ending times, as well as indicating whether the event is an all-day event or not. In addition, you can specify a location, the event organizer as well as the organizer's email. Timezone, date formatting, and event URL options are also available.

All the event detail settings are optional, but as indicated on the AddThisEvent website, it is recommended that you specify a title and starting/ending dates at minimum.

Button Settings

The AddThisEvent stack will create a button that will display a number of calendar options. You can control which calendar options are displayed (choosing from Outlook, Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, iCal, and Facebook) as well as the text that is displayed for each calendar option.

Only the calendar options that are checked will be displayed by the AddThisEvent button.
