The GigLodgeClient module allows you and your users (bands only) to submit calendar events to the GigLodge Gig Archive. GigLodge is a community driven archive of all live music with geolocated gigs and venues.
Click on the Account tab and make a note of your 31 character hex API key.
Optionally enter the name of your Jamroom site and its URL into the name and website fields and hit Submit. Any gigs submitted by your users will then have a link back to your site.
Now back to your own Jamroom site, goto the GigLodgeClient module settings page and enter your GigLodge API key. Hit Update Settings.
Goto your Jamroom quota settings and enable GigLodgeClient for the artist quotas it is to be available to. The option is in the Extra Features menu.
By default, the GigLodgeClient option will show in the Artist Control Panel as a stand-alone button, and in the Calendar section. To remove one or the other of these links, rename either the /modules/GigLodgeClient/cp/artist_GigLodgeClientMenu.php (stand-alone) or the /modules/GigLodgeClient/cp/section_event.php (calendar section) file to artist_GigLodgeClientMenu.php.disabled or section_event.php.disabled.
Your users can now click on the GigLodge link in their Control Panel and optionally submit their events/gigs to GigLodge.
Alternatively, Admin can periodically submit artist gigs to GigLodge. Goto the Tools section and click on the Submit Gig to Giglodge link. All artist gigs will be displayed (regardless of their quota setting) and can be selected for submission to GigLodge.
This module also includes a ranking call by which you can pull gig information from the GigLodge Archive for use on your Jamroom site. Use the ranking call as follows in your templates -
