Creating Events

There will be times when you need to tell readers where your event is being held.This is for the Location/Venue tab under Event Details.Enter all details with you to put in.  you can ignore the Latitude and Longitude if you wish.
When you create or even edit an Event, you want to select when it starts and ends.  It might also be an all-day event.Doing this is easy.In the box labelled Event Details:Simply click on the grey 'Start Date' box and a calendar will popup.Enter the date.  You can click on the dropdown for the month if the event is next month, or click the < > arrows to scan through.Then select the same for the End Date, and the Times which are in AM/PM rather than 24hr.If it is an 'All-day Event', just check the 'All-day' Event box below the dates.Then click Save Draft or Publish when you are ready.

Updating Date and Time

This process is exactly the same.  If you entered the wrong date or time, or it needs to be changed, just Edit the event, and change the details, then click Update.And there you have it - Dates and Times of event, done.
Let's say you want to create a new event, but you are not yet ready for it to go live.  You can 'Save Draft'.On the right of your 'Add Event' page is a 'Publish' box.  Within it are several buttons.Save Draft Preview Publish... see below...Save Draft - this allows you to save the Event, and leave it.  You can come back to it when you are ready to finish it off.Preview - once you have entered all your details into the Event, you might want to see how it looks - click Preview and it will open in a NEW TAB, and you can see how it looks.  Return to the *other tab* to make final changes.You can also use this button if you are Editing a live event, just to see how your changes might look - to preview how your Event appears to readers.Publish - you are ready for your Event to go live on the website.  Click Publish and it's done!
Each event really needs an image to make it stand out when someone clicks on it within the calendar.  This could be a poster than you have scanned, or a photo of someone or something at the event.Adding this image is so easy.When you are creating your Event, on most 'PC' sides screens you will see a Right Side bar with 'Featured Image' as it's title.Click on the blue 'Set featured image' link and it will bring up a 'popup'.If you have yet to assign any images, this will be empty, else it will show thumbnails of all your images.If it is empty, click the 'Upload Files' tab, then 'Select Files' button.When you select 'Select Files', this will open up a window to your PC where you can browse to the image you wish to use.  The system works for: png, gif and jpg.Select the image, and upload.  Once done, it will be highlighted with a 'blue checkbox', and a blue 'Set Featured Image' button will be on the lower right of your screen within the browser.  Click that and your image will pop into that Featured Image box.That's your image assigned.  If you are creating your first Event, you might want to go to the top of the page, and click the 'Save Draft' button.If you are editing, click 'Update'.

Adding an event is really simple.  First job, be signed in.  If you are not already signed in, click here to go to My Account.

Then within the main menu, under My Profile, click Add Event.  This will take you to an 'admin area' of this website unseen by others.

This is the screen you should see

In the Add Title box, enter the brief title of your Event, such as "Bank Holiday Sunday Heritage Show".

In the larger field below, enter plenty of information about this event.  As you enter details, you may see the 'website address' of this Event shown below the title.


You may notice your title has a "-2" in it.  This means this title has been used elsewhere, and the 'URL' (website address) has been taken.  You can't have two pages with the same address, so the syste, auto-adds a 2 or 3... to the end of it.

If you want to change it, just click 'Edit' next to it.

Then enter the new title and click OK.  If this one isn't 'taken', it will appear normally.

That's the title done.  And now we can work on the main body text of your Event.

Give it loads of information.  More details on adding 'Links' etc are within this FAQ.

If you want to enter Bullet points, just click the Bullet Points icon.  If you want it to be Bold, click the 'B' bold icon.  Just like you would in Word.
