There are several ways you can add a new event to your website.

From any page on the site, click the Quick Add Menu ' + ' next to the Admin Menu top right of the website, and then click "Event" in the drop-down

Or, go to the events page (/events) on your website, click on the FAB (edit pencil) which can be found on the top l eft  side of the page. Select 'Add Event'

Once you're on the 'New Event' page enter your event details such as, title, subtitle, location etc.

Adding the date to your event 

One day event

If your event is a single day event, enter a start and end time, or select 'All Day Event' if you'd like those times hidden. To edit the date and time just click into the start or end date and a calendar popup will appear.

Weekly Event

If you are creating an event that will be weekly, such as a prayer gathering you can select 'Automatically generate 6 months of weekly occurrences and these events will be automatically added to the site with the update dates once appropriate.  

Next add any details you'd like included in the event, upload your images, attach files or add videos!

Note: The first photo you upload will act as the title image of the Event/News or Blog post. All additional images will appear as a slideshow on the corresponding page.

Event Placement

Lastly, select where on your website you'd like the event to be shown

You have the ability to control where each Event is displayed on your site by checking different boxes in the Placement section.

Blocks will pre-populate that event in the scrolling slideshow (if you have it set up to be that way), event blocks (ie: homepage)

Event Page will showcase/highlight your event on the events page (left side with images)
Event Page Sidebar will list your event only during the week the event is happening under "This Week's Events" on the event page

Calander will show your event on your website events calendar. The calendar view is a great way to see a monthly overview of all events. 


If your event is still being drafted and you don't want it live on the site quite yet, you can uncheck the ' Published'  check box (found right above the 'Save Event' button) . When you're ready to share the event with everyone and make the event visible on the site, just recheck the 'Published' box and save your event.

To find unpublished events, Click on the Admin Menu, Content and Events.
