      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Google Breaks Calendar Embeds

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I don't understand how one goes about breaking an embed code, but Google has gone and done it...and has failed to fix it!

 

Google calendar - to be precise - is the problem.

 

Embed a google calendar into your web page, and watch it magically, and TRAGICALLY, change all your events to different dates! Yikes! That's a great way to screw up everyone who had planned to attend your events, eh?

 

I think it's crazy that such a thing occurred, but even crazier that it's not yet been fixed. I've been told it's been going on for at least a couple of weeks, although it looks like it might just be a week to me. Either way, that seems like WAY too much time to fix such a problem.

 

Why is it that Google can get away with these kinds of issues, but other companies would be put through the wringer for being so slow to act?

 

I bet if the NY Times or Wall Street Journal would write about it, it would be fixed hours later. But until then...meh...we're "working on it". Yeah. Ok.

 

Here's one of the many threads on the issue - http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Cale...53548&hl=en

 

This affects LOTS of people. Google is sometimes awesome (love their new ebook store) and sometimes I just want to kick 'em in the yahoos, if ya get my drift.
