The process of creating an Event for this site is identical to the process of creating a new Post, however an Event adds a few additional options. Please review the post on creating events, Posts – Creating, first.
To create a new event complete the sections below in addition to the regular post text fields.
- The Events Calendar.
- Time and Date.
This is where you enter the detailed information of when the event occurs. It’s fairly self-explanatory. The recurrence section can be used to add each instance of a recurring event to the Event Calendar.
This will default to the Marshall Grange. Additional locations may be added. Options for including a Google map and link are available here too.
This will default to Marshall Grange Presents. New organizers may be added.
- Event Website.
A website other than ours may be entered here to link viewers to more information.
- Event Cost.
Enter the cost of the event. If you leave the fields blank then you can type more complex fees directly into the event text.
For example, we usually have different prices for non-members, members, and students. The Event Cost feature wouldn’t work well for this.
The RSVP feature has not been tested. Use with caution.
- Time and Date.
- Custom Fields.
This section is visible to Contributors on the New Event form, however you should consult the webmaster to see if this is the best approach.
- Event Options.
- Hide From Event Listings. Use this option to hide the event from a list view of events.
- Sticky in Month View. This option will put this event first if a list of events on the same day are shown.
- Event Categories.
Event categories are different than post categories even though some may have the same name. For more information on event categories click here.
