To add an event to this web site’s calendar, all you need to do is create content of type “event,” filling in all the fields appropriate to your event, and leaving blank any which don’t apply. If you don’t know how to create web pages on our system, read the FAQ page on Creating Web Pages.
Be sure to choose one or more appropriate topics for your event. If it is a committee meeting, for example, you’ll want to select “meeting” and the committee (e.g. Transportation, Board, Trails, Public Safety, etc.) If a topic for your committee does not exist, ask the webmaster to add it.
Please note that there are separate fields for agenda and description. The description field will show up in the event summary, so it is best if it is relatively succinct. The agenda field is optional, if you don’t have a formal agenda to post, or if you want to add the agenda later. If you don’t have your agenda finalized, you could post a preliminary agenda and mark it as such, or you could simply put in “TBD” or leave the field empty. You can always edit your event page later by hitting the “edit” tab at the top.
If you fill in a street address and city information in the location fields, the system will automatically create a Google Maps link for you. Brief instructions for each field appear just below the field’s entry box.
In general, if an optional field is left blank, it will be omitted from the event’s web page; even the title for the field will not appear on the page. For example, you would normally leave the “cost” field empty for committee meetings, and the word “cost” would not appear on the page. On the other hand, if you entered “free” into the “cost” field, a line would appear on the page which looked something like: “cost: free.” In some circumstances, this might be what you want. But for many events, such as a committee or neighborhood meeting, it is probably unnecessary.
Leave the “repeat” field unchanged, unless you wish to set up a recurring/repeating event.
Note: If the “End” date & time is the same as the “Start,” only the “Start” date & time will be displayed.
