    Creating An Event

    Creating ‘Events’ is a highly recommended step, as you want to keep visitors of your website informed on things going on in the store. The steps below give you all the options available when doing so. The only required options are those noted with a red asterisk*.

    CREATE AN EVENT

    Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Event

    There are several available fields for you to utilize to create the content of your page:

    Upcoming Events w/ Photo and Details

    Create a view that will populate with upcoming events, and will include a field for an author photo, the body, and date.

    IMPORTANT NOTES:

    Recurring Events Calendar

    The default events calendar does not allow for the addition of recurring events without multiple entries. However, you may create a new ‘content type’ and a ‘view’ which will then provide a separate calendar that does.
