How do I create an events calendar?

Use the calendar page template to show events on your website. Similar to news pages, you can:

  • Embed an events feed in another page, say your home page, which automatically updates when you publish or edit events.
  • Tag events with keywords, say ‘Conferences’ or ‘Postgraduate’, to enable visitors to filter busy calendars according to their own interests.
  • Filter event feeds by tag. This is useful for feeding a subset of events to other pages in your website, such as research events or announcements for current students.
  1. Go to the page under which you want to create the calendar.
  2. Go to Edit > Create a new page. (You need edit or admin permissions on the parent page.)
  3. Select Change page template to expand the options, then select the Calendar page template.
  4. Specify how the calendar appears by default when someone visits the page by choosing an option from the Default view drop-down menu. E.g. next four days, week or agenda.
  5. Choose the appropriate week length from the drop-down menu: weekdays only; seven days of equal column width; or five weekdays plus two weekend days of reduced width.
  6. Specify whether to display time in 24-hour format.
  7. If you want to show term week numbers, choose an option from the Term week number display drop-down menu.
  8. Specify where the tags list displays using the Tag list position drop-down menu – at the top of the page or to the right of the news items.
  9. Enter the rest of the page properties: URL, Page heading, Title bar caption and Link caption. (For guidance on these properties, see: how do I create a new blank page?)
  10. Select the Create new page button.
  11. Select the Done button and visit the published page.

Note: When you create a calendar, it spans the right-hand side automatically. If you want to put your own content in the right-hand side, go to Edit > Edit page properties > Additional options and unselect the Span right-hand side checkbox.
