Upcoming events gadget

Using the upcoming events gadget, you add a clickable list of upcoming events , with each event linking to a detailed description of the event.

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

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

You can insert the upcoming events gadget into a page onto your site, or into a page template so that all pages that use that template will automatically display the gadget. For instructions on inserting, moving, and deleting gadgets, see Gadgets.

Gadget style

The gadget style determines the physical appearance of the gadget. The style you choose will determine the color and format of the gadget title, the gadget content, and the gadget border. You can choose from theme-specific styles and styles that are common to all themes. For Terra and Firma themes, the Opacity 60% style results in a semi-transparent gadget background.

Padding(Kaleidoscope themes only) The amount of space – in pixels – that appears between the content of the gadget and the outer limits of the gadget. You can set top, bottom, left, and right padding separately. If you have set a fixed height for the gadget, the bottom padding will be ignored.
