Race Countdown Clock Widget

We have introduced a Countdown Clock Widget for races.

Like any widget, this is configured in the Widget pages. First you Create a Countdown Clock Widget:

Then configure the Widget with the various options for Date and Time, size, whether it is plain text blocks or a flip style, and Units to show (Months, Weeks, Days, Minutes, Seconds).

You can also set styling with color and font choices by creating a new style under Widgets. Once that is done, you can use the widget on your own website, or include on your RunSIgnUp Website by creating a Custom Section and specifying the Widget.

If you do not know the widget ID, you can find it on the Widget ->View/Edit Widgets page:

Participant Cap Widget

Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 8.29.26 AM.pngWe have added another widget – this time for showing the # of participants relative to the participant cap. (Caution – remember when you have a sell out race these numbers may change a lot in the 2 minutes it takes people to register – and caps are calculated on the final step of registration.

The widget setup is the same as all the others (and remember you can include widgets in your RunSignUp WebSite Custom Content Sections).

You can also change colors in the Widget Style Editor. For example:

Race Calendar Options

Race Calendar Widgets are a quick and easy way for running stores, clubs and timers to put a list of races on their website. We have added a few options to allow for:

  • Customize title to something other than “Race” – this is useful for Clubs who might have a training run calendar
  • Highlight specific Races in the list
  • Highlight only Partner races
  • Show/Hide Race Logos
  • Show/Hide Results link
  • Show/Hide SignUp link
  • Show/Hide distances

Here is the setup screen:

And here is a sample widget, with some ugly (customizable as well) highlight colors 🙂

Fundraiser and Race Series Widgets Added

We have added a couple of new widgets. The first is a list of Top Fundraisers.  You have the ability to set the number of fundraisers who appear, and as usual customize the look and feel to match your website.

The second widget is for Partners only, and allows you to create a Race Series widget. This is for multi-race series that are scored with our Race Series Scoring. It gives you the ability to select your Race Series (in case you have multiple), as well as the default starting page.
