Event calendar gadget

So that visitors to your site can see your events and register for them, you can add an event calendar gadget to a page on your website. Events can be displayed in list view...

...or in calendar view.

You can set up multiple event calendars, each displaying a different set of events (e.g. training vs. social events).

Unlike an upcoming events gadget that lists only a limited number of upcoming events, the event calendar gadget can display all events, including past ones.

Whether an event appears on the calendar depends on the event visibility and access restrictions set as part of the event settings.

For instructions on inserting, moving, and deleting gadgets, see Gadgets.

You cannot add an event calendar gadget – or any other singular gadget – to a page template or system page, or to a page containing another singular gadget.

For more information on setting up and using event calendars, see Publishing your event calendar.

Adding a title and description

You can add a title and description for your event calendar by inserting a content gadget ahead of the event calendar gadget. Within the content gadget, you can format the title and description using text styles. For more information, see Using the content editor.

Event calendar gadget settings

Using the gadget's settings, you can control its appearance and content. Among other things, you can choose which types of events are displayed, and which types of visitors can view the event calendar.
