How to start an event

Your ‘calendar’ page is a place to post events. The most recent event will appear at the top, older events will cycle down the page, and once an event has passed, it will move from the event listing to a 'past events' page, automatically. The next several scheduled events will display automatically on the home page.

  1. Log in
  2. On the front end of your site, click Programs and Events in the menu bar. When in your event calendar, click New Event. OR from the admin dashboard, choose calendar from your list of pages, then click Events and sub-pages then choose New Event.
  3. Enter an event name in Name. 
  4. Slug will populate automatically. 
  5. Set Status to "draft"
  6. Click Create Page and the event will be saved.
  7. Enter content. (Watch an overview of event setup that covers each field, including different ticket levels, payment options, setting  up an auto-confirmation email and checking people in at the event) 
  8. Once content has been entered and proofed, publish the event by going to Settings and change the status to Published
  9. Save
