Preventing text from being displayed

Place the text between [!-- and --]

Minimize linking to the gig-page directly, but link to the year-page. Each gig has an anchor you can link to on the year-page [[[1970#110970]]].

[[[1970#110970|1970-09-11 - CLEARWATER SWIM CLUB, ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ]]]
[[[1970#110970|September 11, 1970]]]

Gig vs. Onstage/Offstage Category

gig:-pages have also an onstage:-page. The purpose of the onstage:-page is to tag the people/bands who are on stage during the gig. The purpose of the offstage:page is to tag people that were notably present at the event.
Do NOT tag people/bands on the gig:-pages, with the exception of "brucespringsteen", it will screw up statistics.

Venue Naming Convention in all urls

  • We do NOT include the city name in the venue name url. But it will be in the title of the venue.
Title: __Los Angeles__ Memorial Sports Arena, Los Angeles, CA
Url: [[code]][[[venue:memorial-sports-arena-los-angeles-ca]]]

  • We do NOT include a university (or College) in the venue name, if the venue is on a campus.
Url: [[code]][[[venue:pollak-thatre-west-long-branch-nj]]]

Audio/Video Interview vs. Written/Published Interview

  • If it's broadcast (audio/video), we use the date released, that's when people saw it. We do mention the date when the interview actually took place, if known, in the gignote.
  • for a print interview, the day it appears in the paper is less important than when it happened. We do mention the date when the interview is published, if known, in the gignote.
