POTTSTOWN PA – Travels With The Post launched more than a month ago. Since then its calendar-related “Weekend Stuff To Do” stories, published Thursdays, regularly top its list of most-read items. Readers have repeatedly told us they use it in planning for their leisure time.
They have been quick to also tell us what else they wanted from the Travels calendar.
We’ve received chat texts, Facebook messages, a ton of e-mails, and even one Facetime call about what readers hoped for in improvements. On Monday (July 24, 2023), we’re delivering on two of the three most-requested features. The third is still in progress, but will be available soon.
A fast way to find “Weekend Stuff”
Readers asked us for a fast way to locate the “Weekend Stuff” story. We’ve obliged by adding a link to it under “Calendar” on the website’s top menu. Push your mouse cursor over it near the top left of the page, and a drop-down selection will appear. Click on “Weekend Stuff” to be taken to a page where the current and all past stories are displayed.
Be advised: the current version of “Weekend Stuff” usually is not available to the public until Thursday mornings.
A way to plan beyond the weekend
Readers asked us to give them a glimpse at what’s scheduled beyond the current Thursday-through-Sunday (or federal holiday Mondays) view that “Weekend Stuff” offers. As a result, we’ve begun compiling “The Extended Travels Calendar.” Entries through October appear on it now. A link to it also is found on the Calendar menu drop-down. We will add items as we receive them.
An easy way to submit items to the calendar
Non-profit organizations and other groups planning events have said this is a “must.” There’s good news on that front. We’re at work on the digital forms needed to make calendar submissions both user-friendly and easy to reproduce in a format we prefer. We expect the solution will be ready Aug. 1 (Tuesday). We’ll publicly announce it.
