Calendar Events 1

The calendar feature makes it easy for you to create an online calendar of events to display on your netAdventist website.

The new training video hasn’t been created yet for this feature.

  • If you haven't already done so, Log in to your website and select the Dashboard link at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to the Site Content tab. If you haven't already activated the Events in Extensions go to Settings and activate it. See the Extensions training video for further instructions if needed.
  • Select Calendar from the Left navigation bar. Notice that the Calendar link opens a dropdown revealing additional Calendar options and the Calendars index screen in the center. The calendar is where you place events. The Published folder is where you can add additional calendars including iCal or other ICS calendars.
  • Select Edit next to Local Events, your main default calendar/events. You can edit the title. You can also create a custom color for the border around your events. Select the dropdown arrow. Click on the color bar on the right side in the range that you want, then click within the square for the color that you want. You can choose to allow logged in website users to submit events for approval by selecting the checkbox. When done, select the Save button.
  • To add an event, click on the Calendar title. Select the button Add Event. Enter a title and location. You can set the time of the event, create a multiple day event, add content or set an access level. Check the box that says Repeat to set the Repeat Interval. Add content using the editor and set your access level at the bottom under Privileges. For more information on using the editor refer to the TinyMCE Editor training video. When you are finished, select Save.
  • You can go back and Edit or Delete an existing event by clicking on it.
  • You can add additional calendars for different ministries, etc with a different color than your Local Events following the same instructions by selecting the button Add Calendar.
  • You can display your Calendar using your Main Menu or the Events Widget. For further instructions, refer to the Main Menu or Widgets training videos. Both allow you to choose between a calendar view and a list view (Event title).
  • Select View Site on the upper right, then the location where you placed the calendar to view the calendar you created. When viewing, if the calendar view appears you can switch to the list view and vice versa on the upper right.

Note: If you create a template for All Calendar/Events pages with a No Containers layout, it will make your calendar the full width of your website unless you have a Main Menu in a Sidebar Container. For more information see the Templates/Layouts training video.

See the Calendar 2 training video for instructions on commenting on an event and how events can be submitted by a site member. See the iCal/ICS Calendar training video if you want further instructions on that feature.
