Hi, I'm new to your software and am trying to set up a database for all speakers and visiting speakers (foreign language group). Is there a way to import the public talk themes and assign them to speakers? If not clear please let me know.

To import the Themes of public talks just open "Settings" "Public talks" "+" There you can import the talks from clipboard - should be a table like 1 "Do you know God" (or similar - don't know exaxt translation :) ) The Speakers can be imported similar, but you net a very special form: Congregation Name 1,2,3 (Nr of talks)

Hi, I struggle with the import described above. I try to paste a list of congregations and speakers as described above. I don't need to add their talks now, so:
1. Can I just leave the nr of talks out?
2. What should I use as separation between congregation and name (comma, tab, anything else)?
3. Should I include the text fields by any brackets, "" or anything? How does the system know what is the name and what is the congregation otherwise, i.e. Stockholm North Congregation James William Fletcher...
The info I have comes from an excel sheet and I have the information in the following form:
Column 1 Column 2
Botkyrka Norra John Doe
Botkyrka Södra James William Doe
Botkyrka Södra Arnold Doe
Bromma Joe Doe
Bromma Mick Doe

Any advice would save a lot of time for me.

Ok thanks, I have managed to import the Public Talk themes, but when I try to create a list of speakers and talks, the themes are not available. Do I have to assign the talks to each brother? If so, how can I do this? When I try they don't register. Would it not be easier to have a box with each brother's information to enter the talks in order? That way when I create my list, each speaker will have a set of talks he uses in the the themes area?

Best way to add congregations and speakers is in a place you do not expect it.

Go to Settings General. Then under Weekend Meeting click the button next to "Click to edit". There add congregations. Select a congregation and add speakers belonging to that congregation.

Then if you click a speaker. all talks will appear in the right bottom box (that is, if you have imported them of course) and you can tick each talk that speaker has.

In TheocBase, if you go to Printing, you choose Combination and you untick Midweek Meeting. What is left, is Weekend Meeting and Outgoing Speakers.

How is what you are doing now, meant to be different?

I can read the attachment, but the problem is not clear yet for me.

In fact the combination it appears only one week per page I wanted to at least 3, along with the speakers that come out when you. I could do but there are times when it unset.

First of all if you want to use the combination html file for this, I suggest you make a copy of the combination file and change the name to combination-weekend, so you keep the original. Because if you are going to code page breaks into the html, they will also be there in case you use the template for combining all meetings rather than just the weekend ones, and that may not be working out as desired.

Do you have 2016-PM-Schedule in your template folder? I enclose a zipup of it anyway.If you open it, rather near the top (line 15-19) there is a section < script > < /script >.Between it there is a whole section or text starting with "if (!Paperheigth etc."

Copy the entire bit, including the script opening and closing codes, and paste it into the combination-weekend html.

I suppose you work with 297mm paperlength (...). If you doyou will now see page breaks after every fourth week. If you use one of the larger pagelengths the break will be after 5 or even 6 weeks.

See my earlier posthttp://www.theocbase.net/discussions/92-pagebreak-in-printout.html This is about changing a 3 week page break template to a 4 week page break template, but you can turn that around of course if you want a 3 week page break.

Make sure you change the bit that belongs to your paper length. (A4=297)

Good luck!

You have to remember if you hard code a page break after let's say 3 weeks, it will always be after 3 weeks. And if you have 1 or 2 or all 3 weeks with many outgoing speakers, your page will be too small, and the page break occurs at the physical end of the paper. That may not be convenient.

See the attachment 2 posts up. It is a zip file. Unzip it. Open the html file with a text editor. Brackets or Notepad++. Not Word. Find lines 15-19.
