Creating New Calendar Events

WordPress Instructions for Creating a Collaborative Event.

  1. Login into https://www.design39collaborative.org/wp-admin using browser of choice (Chrome, Safari, Explorer, Firefox).
  2. Username: [first.last]@design39collaborative.org
  3. Password: First time default then change.
  4. Left hand menu click on ‘Events’. (Or you can ‘Add Event’ directly from a submenu of ‘Events’ once you hover over it).
  5. You should see this. You can only edit events that are owned by your login. If you want to edit an existing event or one you don’t own, let me know and I will change the owner.
  6. To add an event, click on ‘Add Event’. If it is a recurring event, do not use ‘Add Event’, use ‘Add Recurring Event’.
  7. If you login for the first time, go to the upper right and edit profile by changing password. You can add photo or whatever else you want to do.
  8. Add the Event Title.
  9. Add the Event dates and time.
  10. Add Event text. At this time, I would hold off on pictures imbedded in the text.
  11. Add location information if needed. When you type the name, keep it simple (e.g. Napizza vs. Napizza @ 4S). Add Address, City, State, and Postal code. This allows the map to be created. Verify map.
  12. Add Excerpt. This is 1-3(<10) words to describe the event that will show up on the calendar. The concern with too many words is the dynamic nature of the calendar gets ‘funky’ when the title is used. If you don’t put an excerpt, it is okay, the title will be used.
  13. Add Category for the event. Checkbox. Simple.
  14. You can use the ‘Preview’ button to see what the page will look like. NOTE: this is usually opened in a separate browser tab. When you click again, it goes to the same tab. Sometimes that is tricky.
  15. When done or if you have to save and come back to it. Click ‘Save as Draft’ if you have to leave it for some time and are not ready for publishing. Click ‘Submit for Review’ when you are ready to publish. Eventually, when you are comfortable, you can have publishing rights.
