The events Calendar and the various tables of events are all generated from Event and Location entries.
An Event entry should contain information specific to the event, and will, at the very least, contain the event’s name and date. It may (and usually will) be connected to a Location.
A Location entry should contain information specific to the location, and will, at the very least, contain the location’s name and address. It may have multiple events connected to it.
Does an Event need a Location?
Consider the following questions:
- Will the Event be open to visitors?
- Should the Event show in any “Events In Your Region” searches?
If the answer to all of these questions is “No”, then it doesn’t. Choose the most appropriate setting for the Event’s “Reason for No Location” field.
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then it does. It is best to create the Location entry before the Event entry. First check to see whether the location is already defined in the system. You can search for a location using the Locations page, or using the GB Map and World Map pages which provide Google™ Map displays with locations marked. Clicking on a link will pop up a box giving the location’s name and a link for further details.
Event managers may enter and edit events and locations using the following sub-pages:
Event Managers may also edit details of events and locations by first viewing the relevant entry and then using the “Edit Event” or “Edit Location” top-bar options.
