    Yes, purchase a 5 domain plus or developer license.  Install as with network super-admin then activate. Go to any of your sites and activate your license as you would on a single site. Repeat previous step to activate on additional sites.  You can now add a different schedule for each site.

  • How do I manage my schedule?

    Click on "Manage" from the Admin Menu Add your shows' day and time and details, name/jock. Check the box next to " Is this a recurring show?" To add shows that reoccur quickly.

  • The widget shows the wrong show for the time of day, what's the problem?

    There are 2 causes of this problem.

    1. You failed to enter an event/show for each hour of the day. For example; if there's no live host or show between 1 pm & 2 pm on any day, don't skip it in the schedule. Instead, "TBD" or anything you like for that hour, the same rule applies whether you have a 15 minute, 30 minute or 60 minute window between programming.
    2. The start day and end day do NOT match. E.g. Your show starts on Sunday but it ends on Monday.
